The perfect choice for both recruiters and contractors


We’ve been helping contractors with their finances for over 15 years, developing in-depth expertise on all aspects on contracting life. We work in partnership with over 2,500 recruitment agencies, including leading companies like Hays, Capita, Venn and Reed. Our fast and efficient system will have your contractors set up in no time, and our knowledge of legislation means they will always remain 100% compliant.

Nothing is more important to us than providing outstanding support. We work to stringent KPIs and make it our mission to continuously improve – taking on board feedback from you and your contractors to find out what we can do better – and then making it happen.

Plus, we’ve expanded our support team and extended our opening hours, so contractors are more likely to get hold of us and less likely to bother you with queries. So you can get on with placing candidates and earning commission, safe in the knowledge that your contractors are being looked after.

Introducing Engage


In the temporary worker market we understand you want your teams focused on increasing successful placements with happy contractors. Therefore you want little fuss from any supplier of choice who manages employee payment or accounting solutions.

That’s why we’ve developed an innovative programme to ensure our recruitment partners are given the best industry leading service and expertise we have honed over the many years we’ve been in business.

The best advice for your contractors


Not all contractors will know which way of working is best for them. But it can be hard for recruiters to dedicate the time to helping them choose – especially in an industry where legislation changes regularly.

When you refer your contractors to our specialist best advice Team, we’ll use our expertise to explain the options and help them make the best choice for their circumstances. Those best suited to umbrella employment would join Parasol, whilst those who would benefit more from operating through a limited company would use our sister company, ClearSky Contractor Accounting. Whichever option they choose, they’ll get comprehensive, expert support that helps them maximise their take home pay – and lets you concentrate on placing more candidates.

If you want your contractors to get expert help in choosing the right option, contact our best advice Team today.
