What Our Clients Say

Rating stars.

“Never had a problem in 3 and a half years”

I’ve never had a problem with Contractor Umbrella or with any staff. I think that says a lot – I have been paid on time at the correct rate and never had a problem in 3 and a half years. Payslips and pay statements arrive promptly as do P60s and my pay gets into my bank as soon as you tell me it’s been paid. I have used the Rewards programme and saved over £1,000 which is a good benefit.

Rating stars.

“Customer service is absolutely outstanding”

I feel like I was getting a VIP service. Customer service is absolutely outstanding. All my queries have been dealt with quickly and on time. I won’t hesitate to go with Contractor Umbrella again when I will go back to contracting.

Rating stars.

“Have very kind words to say about CU”

Have greatly appreciated the team and how well and efficiently you processed the payroll for me. Have very kind words to say about CU and definitely a good recommendation to anyone I meet new to contracting.

Rating stars.

“I cannot praise you enough for the service”

Thanks so much for processing this and for helping me through this rather tortuous process. You have been so patient and helpful – I cannot praise you enough for the service you have provided.
