Even more for our contractors

Pay-day is never a headache for you when partnering with ADVANCE. You can expect to be paid correctly, on time, every time

Dedicated support

Whether you’re new to the world of contracting or an experienced contractor, our specialist team is here to help and answer any queries you may have. We’ll talk you through the process of joining an umbrella company and provide ongoing support.

Employment rights and benefits

We’ll provide you with all of the rights and benefits that you’d expect if you were in traditional permanent employment, including a workplace pension, holiday pay, sick pay and maternity / paternity pay.

Regular updates

You’ll be sent a text message letting you know when you’ve been paid. We’ll also email your payslips to you.


ADVANCE continuously invest in our infrastructure and people to ensure every part of your contracting journey is efficient, simple and reliable.

Continuous employment

Your tax code will be more stable than if you were getting paid by a different recruitment agency for each new assignment, reducing the risk of being placed on emergency tax by HMRC. Having one employer will also make mortgage and credit agreements easier to secure.

Simple tax affairs

We'll employ you and pay you on a pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) basis, deducting income tax and National Insurance contributions at source. This means that, unlike self-employed or limited company contractors, you shouldn’t need to file a self-assessment tax return.

Rated excellent by contractors

We take seriously our commitment to World Class Service. We are delighted to see that our TrustPilot reviews reflect this. We are the highest rated provider on TrustPilot & Google!

Work place pension

Plan for your future with ADVANCE's work place pension scheme. You can even choose to to exchange part of your salary in return for increased contributions towards your pension plan at no extra cost if you choose to. 

Insurance cover

The benefit of a comprehensive insurance package provided at no additional cost
