Intermediary Company – Information Sheet

If you wish to be engaged through a third-party intermediary company, we have pre-approved the following suppliers.

Whilst we will consider alternative suppliers, we will not engage any intermediary company which is based offshore, does not pass our due-diligence checks or which is unwilling to agree our contract for intermediary companies. If we are unwilling to engage your preferred intermediary company, we will ask you to (i) choose an alternative provider from this Approved Supplier List or (ii) engage with us on a different basis.

Please note that the rate which we pay to an intermediary company will be more than the gross pay rate which you receive from the intermediary company. The rate which we pay is inclusive of any statutory costs (where applicable) such as Employers National Insurance, the Apprenticeship Levy, pension contributions and paid holiday. These costs are deducted by the intermediary company, together with their weekly fee, before calculating your gross pay.

This document sets out the information which we are required to give under Regulation 13 of the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003. In accordance with the Regulations:

  • The provision of services to you by an intermediary company is not a work-finding service for which the Employment Agencies Act 1973 prohibits the charging of a fee;
  • Any fees payable by you would be paid directly to the relevant intermediary company by being automatically deducted from any monies received in respect of your temporary assignment; and
  • Unless otherwise agreed by you with the relevant intermediary company, no refunds or rebates are payable to you.
