Why recruit contractors through Rockstaff?
Frequently Asked Questions
There are pros and cons to hiring both permanent and contract employees, but when you add up NI contributions, sick pay, pension, benefits, bonuses etc, permanent employees can often be more expensive!
We will consider all contract lengths, but it will depend on the seniority of the candidate and how difficult they will be to source. Our preference would be to work with contract durations of no less than 3 months.
The online timesheet system eases the process of contractors sending timesheets, and managers signing them off. Once signed off, invoices are automatically generated and sent to your accounts department, who subsequently send the payment to Rockstaff, who has paid the contractor.
Your company will have one signed agreement in place with Rockstaff, and Rockstaff will have another signed agreement in place with the contractor. There is no need for a signed agreement between your company and the contractor, unless the work they do for you specifically requires it.
