Contractor, Umbrella Company & Agency - the relationship

There is a lot of confusion and misleading information available in relation to the relationship between you, us and the recruitment agency and/or client.

We feel it is important for everyone involved to understand the different relationships and how they interlink with each other. Take a look at our guide where we have visually demonstrated the correct relationships between us, you, the agency and the client.

You're employed by us under an overarching contract of employment, to work on a succession of assignments.

We take responsibility for making sure you are paid and receive all the employment benefits and support that you’d expect from an employer, while your agency focus on getting you the right role to work on.
