At Contractor Umbrella we pride ourselves on looking after both our employees and our clients, with this in mind we set up our Service Guarantee designed to ensure all employees and clients are taken care of every step along the way.
Registering with Contractor Umbrella
Online Employment File Set-up
If registering before 16.30 Monday to Friday, your online employment file will be activated the same working day. If registering after 16.30 Monday to Friday, your online employment file will be activated the next working day.
Appointed Contract Manager
Every employee of Contractor Umbrella is appointed a personal Contract Manager, who is available to deal with any queries that you may have. You can get in touch with your Contract Manager, through the online message board, by email or by telephone.
Starter Pack Email
We send you a Starter Pack email shortly after your online employment file has been activated to confirm the processes and what happens next.
Your Contract Manager will contact you the same day your online employment file is activated to introduce themselves and provide any initial information that you may need.
Contact agency / client
We will contact your consultant at the agency or client coordinating your first assignment to arrange for the contract paperwork to be issued. This will be done at your request and straight away if required.
Day to Day Service
We realise how frustrating platform based call centres are so a ‘real’ person always answers the phone.
We understand the inconvenience caused by waiting for a reply to a query, so our policy is to answer emails / messages within 4 hours if received during business hours (09.00-16.30) the same day if received before 16.30.
Invoices sent same day
Invoices will be sent to the agency (or end client) the same day, if your online timesheet is submitted to us before 16.30, Monday to Friday.
Confirmation of Payment
You will be emailed a payslip on the same day your payment is processed and your homepage on the online portal will be updated to indicate which invoice(s) have been paid.
Your Contract Manager will provide a credit control service free of charge, at your request for unpaid or underpaid invoices.
Secure Employee area
The employee’s area is secured via SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, so your privacy is guaranteed.

If we do not meet the care levels set out above, please contact your Contract Manager so we can investigate and act accordingly.
