Taking the stress out of the day to day

Working through an umbrella company is a great option for contractors who want the freedom of contracting without the administration and cost. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to this or a seasoned contractor, joining Big Fish Group umbrella gives you total flexibility, without the hassle and long term financial commitment that comes with running your own company.

With comprehensive insurance cover options, something that you’ll need for you client contracts, and a load of benefits in the Big Fish Group Rewards portal – including discounts in various supermarkets, high street stores and cinemas, being part of Big Fish Group umbrella means more than just picking up your pay.

As an umbrella employee working with us, you’ll receive statutory benefits in the same manner any permanent employee would, meaning you’re entitled to holiday pay, statutory sick pay, statutory maternity pay & statutory paternity pay, all while still managing your own contracts. And, with continuous employment through an umbrella company, it’s easier for you to obtain credit approval for your ride to work or perhaps your next house. Putting you firmly in control of your finances.

You don’t need to worry about calculating tax and NI contributions, all of this is taken care of for you by us.


“As a contractor on and off for nearly 20 years, I eventually got fed up running my own ltd company, and switched to Umbrella. I found that I was still being distracted being referred to different departments etc. when there was an issue. I was right back to where I started! Big Fish Group are different. A text message, email and phone call have been enough to get things sorted. This has meant I can focus on what I am supposed to be doing, working.”
