    Any contractor working for them right now needs to get onto weekly invoicing and payment terms. if Carillion has not taught people to recognise the danger signs they could be in for a rude awakening. Lessen your exposure to this lot of possibly suffer the consequences.
    If you knew anything about them you’d know they do weekly payments, and most contractors are direct with no agencies involved. They also allow 100% home working and pay all expenses.

    They’re like any large outsourcer. He biggest problem they have is it’s only the contractors who do any bloody work and they’ll be the first lot to go after this profit warning. So I’m glad they’re not my current client.

    The main thing with any third party like Capita is that their sole interest in your company is making as much money from you as possible.

    Which is probably completely at odds with the goals your company will have.
