The UK government has outlined fresh plans to tackle tax avoidance by some rogue firms posing as umbrella companies.
Umbrella.co.uk has been getting into the spirit of the festive season with a desk decorating competition.
Umbrella.co.uk are pleased to announce we have been awarded Cyber Essentials certification.
At the end of this strangest of years, Umbrella’s traditional end of year celebrations and awards ceremony have for the first time been held in our offices! Conscious of our status as a holder of a COVID-secure employer accreditation, the prize winners were informed by email and were invited to make the solo walk to CEO Nick Holmes’ office to collect their trophy and accept the praise heaped on them! The walk along ‘Winners’ Way’ was accompanied by appreciative cheering and support from their colleagues!
It’s Halloween tomorrow and our staff are not afraid to get in the spirit today.
There’s some scarily gruesome make up going on in the office today fundraising for charity.
The ‘Most Horrible Workspace Competition’ was won by Ellie Preston with her spooktacular haunted house of horrors.
The teams at Umbrella have skipped over the finish line and raised a whopping £1,539.10 for Cancer Research UK.
Umbrella.co.uk signed up to the February 2023 Cancer Research UK Skipping Challenge. Our teams completed the 100 skips a day with wild enthusiasm to raise vital funds for life-saving cancer research.
Umbrella.co.uk held its Christmas Party and annual awards on the 9th of December. We chose a cold and snowy evening to make it very festive! 60-plus staff enjoyed a fabulous meal and drinks, followed by a period of ‘shape throwing’ on the dance floor by those who could – or at least thought they could after partaking in the bar! The photo booth provides permanent evidence of the high jinks!
Nick Holmes, CEO at Umbrella.co.uk, said: “We are proud and excited to announce our membership status move to Trusted Partner is now complete.”
APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies) is the regulatory body for recruitment businesses and as a Trusted Partner, Umbrella.co.uk is monitored and regulated by APSCo’s guidance.
