I’ve been using the company since November 2018 because I found them to be honest and straightforward about how much I would be paid – which is more than can be said about certain businesses in the ‘umbrella’ world. Smartwork gets back to you quickly on queries and is friendly and polite. I’d use them again on other contracts.”
Content and Creative Hub Manager
I’m happy to recommend SmartWork as an umbrella company. The payroll setup procedure is slick and simple, the portal is easy to use and any emails are answered swiftly and courteously. Their fees are amongst the most competitive around. Excellent service all round.”
