View Full Version : Short term contract and umbrellas

ContractorUmbrella have told me they don't take on clients for anything less than a 6 week contract? Does anyone know of any that do? I have an offer for a 4 week contract which is probably a one-off so ltd company seems a bit of an overhead. Thanks in advance.

I used Giant for a short-term 1 month contract (then a 3 month after before i terminated their services and switched).

They were happy to take me on for that, but if you end up working longer-term, i'd advise going LTD purely because i'm paying far less for my LTD and insurance now per month than giant was charging me in fees and my take-home's now higher.

they all will - just tell them its going to be extended for 12 months after this initial period. :)
