We’ve done the compliance checks for you

We understand that developing a compliant PSL is no small challenge. Distinguishing between organisations that pay lip-service to compliance and those that are fully committed is complex, costly and time-consuming. Getting it wrong can have serious implications on your business.

That’s why we have done the checks for you.


Every FCSA Accredited Member has already undergone the most stringent testing in the industry, at no cost to your agency.

Recognised as the industry’s compliance gold standard for umbrella employers, limited company advisors, and self-employed and CIS contractor providers; recruitment agencies can reduce risk by committing to a PSL comprising exclusively of fully compliant and transparent FCSA Accredited Members.
