Do you need a PAYE solution? We offer in-house payroll facilities and will take care of all of your tax and pension deductions. This service comes at no charge to our candidates or clients and our PAYE solutions ensure full IR35 compliance.

Psychometric Testing

Our Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) psychometric assessment provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work, giving you a greater understanding of your candidates and an added layer of information that a CV cannot provide. The PPA takes a person just eight minutes to complete and will immediately be able to answer questions such as: what are a candidate’s strengths and limitations? How do they prefer to communicate? Are they self-starters?
