Contractor Recruitment & Management
Contractor Audits To Ensure Compliance
Utilising contractors is an excellent way for businesses to access specific skill sets or additional capacity at pace. However, without careful management and oversight, contractor utilisation can pose significant risks to a business given applicable legislations which need to be adhered to, including IR35 tax legislations and The Criminal Finances Act.
As contractors are often engaged via multiple sources across a business – and not always controlled or visible in the same way as the hiring of permanent employees – businesses often expose themselves to risks of fines.
When engaging with a contractor, there are a number of important steps which should be taken as part of a robust due diligence process, to ensure contractors are properly vetted for the relevant insurance and that correct IR35 status determinations can be made. The Curve Group’s Contractor Audit service will review and identify your entire contractor population by engaging key stakeholders across the business, identifying any areas of risks or gaps in checks as well as opportunities for efficiencies. Recommendations around ongoing utilisation of contractors are also provided, to inform your broader workforce strategy.

Contractor Sourcing, Vetting & Onboarding
Not only does our Contractor, Sourcing, Vetting and Onboarding service deliver the expert interim support your business needs, but it also drives efficiencies, cost savings and ensures your business complies with the latest laws and regulations, reducing the risk of fines for non-compliance.
As well as sourcing new contractors for new assignments, we can also onboard existing contractors which are being engaged directly by the business, and those provided via other agencies and umbrella companies, bringing your entire contractor book across onto consistent terms and conditions, ensuring robust and accurate compliance checks are completed for all and supporting your business to make sound IR35 status determinations.
Our Contractor, Sourcing, Vetting and Onboarding service can be delivered as a stand-alone service – on a project or longterm outsource basis, or it can be included as part of a full Recruitment Process Outsource solution.
