In others' words
I was first introduced to Parasol by a recruitment company and I was pleased with their recommendation. From my very first phone call with Parasol I could tell that I was dealing with a professional and reliable company. The team answered all my queries and clearly explained the processes involved in becoming a contractor. Any worries I had immediately melted away. Every time I’ve dealt with Parasol I’ve had quick responses, clear direction and the person at the other end of the phone has always been polite and patient. I never dread getting in touch. In addition, Parasol’s intuitive online portal allows me to submit my timesheets and expenses with ease, meaning I can concentrate on my assignments.
I have been a contract writer and content editor since early 2014, and have used Parasol from the start. I can't fault the company's service, and even when an error has previously been made by a third party, Parasol has sorted it. As well as the customer service staff being helpful and incredibly speedy at responding, the online payment portal is a joy to use. I wouldn't say many could go far wrong in choosing Parasol as their umbrella agency.
Parasol has been a great support to me in my contracting career. I first heard about umbrella companies in 2006 and after a shaky start in contracting, I joined Parasol and never looked back. Parasol’s undivided attention on the phone is great and the online portal is quick and easy, making the process of submitting my timesheets and claiming expenses extremely straightforward. The portal continues to improve and my weekly pay slips are now laid out very clearly, and are easy to print. A few years ago I was considering going Limited, and I got in touch with Parasol’s sister company, ClearSky Contractor Accounting. They were very helpful and assessed me according to my recent record with Parasol. In the end, I decided that limited company wasn’t the best option for me, but I would recommend Parasol and ClearSky to anybody looking to further their contracting career.
