Parasol is one of the UK’s largest and longest-established umbrella companies, offering contractors and freelancers outstanding help and support.

We’ve helped more than 90,000 contractors embark on their exciting new careers since our launch in 2000, and we like to think we’ve gotten to know them well. We understand that a contractor’s WorkStyle isn’t always 9-5, so neither are we. That’s why we’re committed to be with them all the way, whenever we’re needed.  

It’s not just contractors who get the five-star treatment, however. We pride ourselves on our ability to build a close relationship with our recruitment agency partners, while providing peace of mind that their contractors and compliance obligations will be well taken care of. This leaves them free to do what they do best, without having to worry about red tape and paperwork.
