The paperless system ensures that contractors are paid on time and mitigates the risk of timesheet fraud. Line managers can also use the system to track financial data and the cost of contractors.

Contractor care

Our contract recruitment consultants ensure they are speaking with their contractors on a regular basis ensuring any feedback on their current contract or changes in circumstances is fed back to the employer.
