Great News for your pocket!

From the 1st of April this year Temporary workers will be paid at least £7.83 per hour, a rise of 33p or +4% inrease to NLW if you prefer to calculate it that way. Unlike other suppliers of temporary staff, we pay all our workers the same rate even if they are under 25 years old!  We don’t discriminate on age (young or old ) and we certainly don’t discriminate on sex, religion or race, so come and work for the agency that cares for its workers regardless of their background.

Even more great news in addition to a significant pay rise - pension contributions paid on behalf of Agency workers will rise from 2% to 5% !! More than twice what it is now !!

"We welcome the rise in living standards brought about by the changes in the National Living Wage and hope that by going beyond the rate of inflation, workers will feel the benefit directly in their pockets."
