Childcare Voucher Scheme

At Parasol, our mission to be with you all the way doesn’t just stop at your assignments. We understand that contracting forms part of your life, and so we want to support you with those important non-career milestones, too.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Sodexo who administer our childcare voucher scheme; to help you save on the cost of childcare.

As an umbrella employee, am I eligible for the Childcare Voucher scheme?

You can join the Parasol Childcare Voucher scheme if:

  • You are a parent or have parental responsibility for a child
  • Your child is 15 years old or younger (vouchers can be used until 1st September following their 15th birthday, or 1st September following their 16th birthday if they are registered disabled
  • Your earnings will remain above the National Living Wage after you take your vouchers

You can join the childcare voucher scheme at any time throughout the year, as long as you are employed by Parasol and on assignment at the time.

For more information about our childcare voucher scheme give our employee support team a call on 01925 644860 or email
