We know that legalities are a key issue to both contractors and the companies who engage them. We ensure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to compliance. Our partnership with Contracting PLUSallows you to relax with the knowledge that all documentation and administration is looked after whilst you engage with one of our contractors. This involves a short Contractor Compliance audit, whereby contractors will be cleared as fully compliant. Read our guest blog to learn more about the approach we take to compliance here.
