Why Contract Through Carrington West?
Contractors use recruitment agencies for a variety of reasons, but the main two benefits are quite simply – easy access to top quality roles and quick and easy processing of payments. In times of economic uncertainty, the second is more important than ever.
Recruiters carry the risk, meaning we pay contractors for work completed regardless of whether the end employer has paid us. The risk varies depending on the end client’s ability or willingness to settle debt. Organisations pay invoices received (from recruiters or contractors) at varying time intervals ranging from 30 days to 120 days and dependent on their systems, often erratically. This is not ideal for most individual contractors who like almost all of us, have on-going financial commitments to meet such as mortgages or rent payments, and need a steadier cash flow to meet these obligations.
At Carrington West we understand the challenges contractors face, and that is why we are committed to pay our contractors weekly. We are an established business with a successful business model that allows us to carry the financial risk and pay contractors for work that they have done.
Carrington West offers a contractors a cost effective and easy service that takes the headache out managing your contract assignment and pays you on time, every time. Contact us to find out more about or contractor services
