How Does An Umbrella Work?

Being paid through an umbrella company is generally, but not exclusively relevant to assignments that are shorter than a 6-month period and less than £15 per hour. It can be ideal for first-time contractors and those that may be unsure as to whether they will contract in the longer-term.

This type of employment may be more suited to your personal circumstances and preferred by you, but it may also be more applicable to the sector in which you work.

If you’re looking to contract for the long-term, you may want to explore our limited company option.  For more information, read our guide to contracting for general advice or call our team on 0800 195 3750 to discuss your options.
