With regulations and legislation changing frequently, ensuring compliance in recruitment can be a major headache. At Outsource UK, we devote considerable time and energy to making sure you benefit from the highest standards of recruitment compliance and ethics, whilst we search for your new contract or permanent role.

We are members of, and work closely with, the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation), APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies) and the IPSE (Association for Independent Professionals and the Self Employed.) We are also one of very few technology, change and engineering recruitment specialists to be ISO2001:9008 accredited.


We take contactor compliance very seriously; nothing should hinder your right to work, so we’ll keep you updated regularly on regulatory and legislative changes.

Whether you choose to work through a personal service limited company or via an umbrella company, our recruitment compliance processes will make sure all the relevant checks and documentation are in place, to help get you onsite quickly and efficiently.

To deal effectively with increasing legislation and protect both you and ourselves, Outsource UK operates a small Preferred Supplier List (PSL) of the umbrella company businesses that we believe offer the best services for contractors. We only recommend reputable service providers who are either independently audited by Professional Passport  or are members of the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association. Choosing from our PSL not only gives you the greatest security, but also ensures your contracts are processed faster as we don’t require further checks before your assignment begins. 

Permanent candidates

We work closely with our clients to ensure that as the chosen candidate, you can start in your role as quickly and easily as possible. This includes helping you complete any documentation required for security or credit checks.
