We can pay both our freelancers and your direct freelancers for you (should you need us to, and at a reduced fee for your direct freelancers). This can save a lot of time and hassle, given the additional work needed for compliance and paperwork. We also ensure all the freelancers are paid on time, alleviating any stress and complication.
Fully compliant freelancers and contractors. You can trust that any contractor or freelancer we place with you is fully compliant with UK legislation. We thoroughly understand the intricacies of the IR35 legislation, so you have all the resources to effectively make your IR35 status determinations and understand how these affect you and the contractor.
Our standards for registration are high, so all freelancers and contractors are rigorously qualified to ensure our clients will be working with trusted professionals, who are very well-matched to do an excellent job.
Freelance rates negotiated on your behalf, ensuring you onboard new freelancers within your budgets and timescales.
Our capacity to manage multiple freelancers, their availability, timesheets, invoices and payment (should you need us to pay the freelancer/s for you).
Ensure the freelancers are well looked after and engaged on your behalf; which is especially important should you want to find a freelancer that can work with you in the long term.
We aim to place a perfectly matched freelance or contractor. We translate clients' requirements into freelance briefs and interrogate the brief thoroughly in order to find the best-fit candidates for the requirement, whether that is last-minute and short-term freelance needs or longer-term contracts.
"BTB are the best! No matter the size of the brief, Emma manages to find the best talent at the drop of a hat. She goes over and above to keep me updated on new talent coming through, as well as interrogating each brief to make sure the perfect person is placed." Stephen Walters / Operations Director / London
"At Radley Yeldar, our Birmingham office has doubled in size over a six-month period. The work was coming in and we quickly needed a mixture of skills on a freelance basis. We were fortunate to be introduced to BTB by a freelancer and, within hours of meeting them, we had relevant people introduced across our offer. I’m happy to say we’ve met some great freelancers and have been very well looked after." Guy Jefferson / Managing Director / West Midlands
