We believe that contractors should be encouraged and rewarded in their career.
Where would organisations be without the ability to bring specific skills, strategic expertise and a fresh perspective into their team on a short-term basis? All sorts of businesses across the UK depend on highly-skilled contractors being able to walk through their door and get the job done.
We have so much respect for these professionals and want them to feel empowered and supported.
But if they can’t benefit from using their own limited company, they actually end up disadvantaged when compared to their permanent counterparts – no limited company benefits, but no employment rights either. This has never seemed fair to us.
So, that’s why we do what we do. We’ve been supporting contractors across the UK from our Glasgow HQ since 2003 – over 120,000 of them so far.
Key Portfolio is our umbrella service, which combines the freedom of contracting with the advantages of employment. Our employees get reliable payroll, the support of a professional employer and a real sense of community spirit on top.
Here’s what they have to say:
- “Key Portfolio were friendly and supportive from the very first conversation. They helped me with all aspects of my work from the beginning to the end. I would recommend Key Portfolio, due to their clear and concise website and easy to understand pay advice slips.” – Emma
- “Just want to let you know that I think Key Portfolio is great – no fuss, excellent service, very transparent, low margin and great discounts (we can actually afford the cinema now!)” – Sean
- “Brilliant payroll, easy to use and contact and I liked the Secret Santa at Christmas.” – Samantha
- “During the six years I was working with you, there were never any problems. The Key Portfolio website was easy to navigate and I could quickly check my payments. I would confidently recommend Key Portfolio to any other supply teacher who asked me.” – Paul
- “Key Portfolio made my work life in the UK very easy! They managed my tax and pension contributions with very little involvement from me. Loved the weekly text message coming through on a Friday afternoon saying I had been paid!” – Andreas
The thing we hear most often from recruiters is ‘we never have to deal with complaints from anyone who’s with Key.’
