Why have I been referred here by an employment agency?
Many employment agencies like to use professional services companies like Umbrella.co.uk because it makes it easier to manage temporary workers.
If you have been referred to us by an agency, then we will be acting as an intermediary between you and the agency (as well as any end-clients).

Alternatives to umbrella contracting
Umbrella companies are great for contractors who want to have a fully managed risk free payroll solution. But it’s not the best choice for everyone. If you choose to operate as a limited company, for example, then you might be able to take advantage of more generous tax arrangements to boost your take home pay. Find out more.

Great service (from Nicholas Ginindza) and extremely professional. He really took his time to explain every detail of my income, tax owed and other details such as expense claims. For someone who isn’t great with numbers and quite new to the Ltd company accounting process, he made it extremely easy to follow.Mina February 2023
I would recommend James and Ellie to anyone. As a consultant who's candidates get paid weekly. Im very lucky that because I primarily use Umbrella.co.uk - I very rarely have any issues. Having happy candidates as a recruiter means that they will stay in their contracts for longer. James and Ellie are always very friendly and from what I've heard from my candidates, they are very thorough with them as well. Genuinely wouldn't refer to anyone else!Maddie Ryan February 2023

Great Company, Great Experience. The umbrella company have been my payroll company since the start of the year. I have the best customer experience during this time. Robert Charlton I deal with is not only a credit to himself but to the company in how he responds to his emails very efficiently and respectfully but also putting at ease any worries with a Simple phone call too. Would highly recommend Umbrella for payroll needs and any worries I would certainly ask for Robert.Colin Robertson February 2023
