How often do you pay contractors?

We are the only recruitment agency in the industry to offer such a service,  The Composite Engineer gives control of pay back to the contractor. If a contractor prefers weekly pay over monthly  this can be provided, due to an increase in admin costs for weekly  payroll there will be a small admin charge for this service.

All rates and charges are made apparent before  a contract begins.
What happens if I need to ring in sick?  

If a  contractor cannot make it to work on a day that they are expected we ask that you inform us or your site manager as soon as possible, so we  can inform the client and arrange cover. 

In an effort to encourage regularity in attendance cash bonuses are on  offer for contractors who complete agreed upon duration's with perfect attendance. 


Do you supply working Visas for countries outside of the EU?


As a recruitment agency it is not down to us to supply working Visas to contractors. If you are outside the EU and you would like to work inside of it. You will either need a sponsor from  the Client ( This only really happens for permanent positions) Or apply and pay for your own working VISA, to be considered for roles inside  the EU and UK.
