At Contax Law we support our candidates. In addition to a dedicated Relationship Manager monitoring their career ambitions and progress during contractor assignments, our candidates are given access to numerous benefits to enhance their professional skill sets as well as personal well-being.
Unless the client is offering a fixed term employment contract, we will contract with you using our own PAYE solution (at no cost) or alternatively with your umbrella or personal service company, for each client assignment. We provide onboarding support and assistance to candidates who are new to contracting and ongoing support to all consultants in relation to ongoing assignments. Here are some of the advantages of joining us:
- Prompt payment: unlike some other agencies, we pay our consultants within 7 days of their time sheet being approved irrespective of how long it takes us to get paid by the client, offering you peace of mind.
- Personal Service: despite offering our mobile App to make administration easy for you, we value our personal relationship with you which can only be developed by face to face and telephone conversations. As a member of our pool we seek to get to know you, your personal and professional preferences, so that we can better place you in the right roles.
- Renewal Bonuses: for Contractor Model roles, if the client extends the period of your assignment, we will pay you a renewal bonus.
- Referral Bonuses: If you recommend a lawyer who we successfully place with a client we will pay you a referral bonus after the first month of that assignment.
- Insurance Help: we have established relationships with experienced insurers/broker who can assist with procuring professional indemnity cover and also insurance for IR35 and other risks.
- IR35: We understand and can assist contractors on navigating through the IR35 tax regime, working with clients on status determinations and structuring roles so that they can fall outside of IR35. We can use insurance to remove tax liability risk from the supply chain.
- Umbrella Company providers: we have established relationships with trusted umbrella company providers First Freelance (Parasol) and so can assist you with getting set up.
- Pain Free Administration: our App allows you to upload time sheets from your mobile device, and have easy access your invoicing and other financial information.
- Instant notification of new roles: our app will automatically send you notifications of new role opportunities that meet your practice area preferences.
- Keeping you Informed: we will send you links to articles highlighting relevant industry developments and market information so that you are informed. We also periodically host workshops that are useful to our pool of contractors.
