How can Workwell Umbrella help your agency thrive?

12 December 2023

By partnering with an umbrella that will work efficiently on behalf of your agency and contractors, you’ll be able to focus on what you do best – sourcing workers.

The beauty of our service is that you can refer a worker and know that we’ll take care of everything from there.

Our onboarding procedure is fast and efficient and we take care to ensure every contractor understands how Umbrella pay works.  With our fast, accurate payment process, you won’t get calls from contractors who have issues with their pay.

With HMRC’s spotlight on compliance, it’s important to work with an Umbrella you can trust.  We are accredited members of the FCSA for our umbrella service which means we are subject to rigorous assessments each year.

Benefits for your agency

Partnership approach – your agency will be supported by a dedicated in-the-field Account Director, ably supported by our desk-based Agency Support Team.  This arrangement means we can be proactive in understanding your agency’s needs, and reactive to day-to-day requirements.

The world of Umbrella and compliance is constantly changing.  Our team will be your go-to experts on all related issues, and we’ll even run training and awareness sessions for your consultants.  Our service will be tailored to the needs of your agency.

Because we’re part of the Workwell group of companies, we can tap into a broad range of services to support your agency’s growth.  From funding and back office services from Workwell Outsourcing to global payroll services via Workwell International, we can act as your one-stop-shop for a wide range of support.


  • No employment liability for your agency
  • Removes IR35 risk as we employ all workers
  • No payroll admin
  • Allows you to concentrate on your core business

Benefits to your contractors

Umbrella is a simple way to work for people who are inside IR35 or who don’t want the responsibility of running a limited company or sorting out their own tax affairs as a sole trader.

As well as all the benefits of holiday pay, sick pay etc, contractors can pay into our pension scheme or continue to invest in a SIPP.  This gives your workers the freedom and flexibility they need to prepare for their future retirement.

All Umbrella workers get automatic access to Workwell Rewards.  This scheme gives discounts on holidays and leisure, eating out and shopping.  Plus, the package includes a range of health, fitness and wellbeing resources for the whole family.

We appreciate that Umbrella pay can be confusing so go to great lengths to ensure your workers fully understand the process, summarised below.
