Umbrella Companies

An umbrella company is a hassle free way of working via an agency. When you join an umbrella company, you are considered an employed individual and the umbrella company will look after all of your Tax and National Insurance deductions, paying you on a weekly basis following submission of your timesheet.

Academics have selected these preferred umbrella companies for the following reasons:

  • They all have expertise in the Education Sector and understand some of the issues and working patterns associated with working in schools
  • They are all fully compliant with HMRC legislation and are based in the UK
  • They have all passed financial checks to ensure that they are financially robust

The sign up process is simple and takes about 5 minutes.  You can contact one of our preferred suppliers using the details below, and they will be able to provide you with an accurate no-obligation illustration to give you an idea of what your net pay will be each week.  This illustration will be emailed to you and at this point, you can decide which one you would like to sign up to.
