Orange Genie News


On 8th August 2018, we launched Orange Genie Edge, our amazing benefits platform.

When we created Orange Genie Edge, we set out to make a real difference to contractors’ lives. Our popular discounts and offers are still an important part of that, which is why we’ve improved them, with average projected savings of £1,200 a year, but that wasn’t enough.


As a recruiter in the construction industry, it’s important to look out for your contingent workers. Skilled and reliable people can be difficult to source, and if they’re not looked after they can be equally difficult to retain. Outsourcing the management of contingent workers to Orange Genie Construction obviously makes sense for recruiters, but is it a good move for the worker as well?

Supply Teachers

According to figures released by the Department of Education, over 2 million academic days were lost due to teacher sickness during the academic year 2016/17. The same document confirms that 55% of teachers in schools had to take time off due to illness.

We know, those numbers are huge, but there is no cause for panic. Despite it’s well documented staffing shortfall, our education system did not melt down last year. What these figures do show us is the continued importance of teaching agencies and their candidates in supporting UK schools and allowing them to keep running.


All UK employers are required to provide a workplace pension scheme for their employees, and as your employer Orange Genie are no exception. We take our responsibilities as your employer very seriously indeed and accordingly, once you’ve been in our employment for three months you will be automatically enrolled on our workplace pension scheme.  

The legislation sets out minimum contributions for you as an employee and us as your employer, to ensure that every UK employee has the opportunity to save for retirement.

Umbrella Company

If you’re working for an umbrella company for the first time, you’ll notice that your pay documents contain more information than you’re used to seeing as a conventional employee. It’s important that you understand your pay, so in this article we’ll take a close look at your Orange Genie pay documents and what they mean.

We want your pay documents to be as easy as possible to follow, and to that end we provide two separate documents each time we pay you.
