Frequently Asked Questions

 

Data and Barring Up-Date Service

 

Every time you go to a new employer you need to complete a new DBS check. This can be costly to you and can take up to 6 weeks (if not longer) before you are able to work. A transferable DBS allows you to work instantly and gives employers instant up-to-date access to your records. This will cost you £13 a year, but is really useful to you and the employer/agency.

Our promise to you is to have you working within 2 weeks of application, however, this does depend on your timely manner and DBS/Reference checks. 

 

How do I get paid?

We pay weekly on Fridays through three different methods:

Umbrella Company - we support many different people with a variety of different umbrella companies, this allows you to claim expenses and off set this against your tax. Many workers find they earn more doing it this way. We are able to advise on different umbrella options - your consultant will help you with this.

Limited Company - a lot of our workers get paid through their own limited company, this means that you will need to invoice us as well as submitting timesheets. Limited companies will need to pay an accountant to help them with self taxing. For more information then talk to your consultant who will be able to go through this option.
