  • We will then contact your agency to let them know to send us a copy of your timesheet.
  • We will then process payment to you. It's that simple.

We will always pay you a minimum of National Minimum Wage (NMW). Dependent upon the rate that you have agreed with the agency, any amount in excess of NMW will be paid to you as profit related pay (less any statutory deductions for PAYE and National Insurance Contributions (NIC's).

We will pay the salary due to your nominated bank account and provide a payslip and text message to confirm what has been paid to you.
