Locums Limited is now Locums Umbrella Services Limited
Originally trading as Locums Limited, they took the decision to change their name early in 2014 to make what they do clearer in the busy umbrella company market. As Director Pom Chakravarti commented, “We knew our brand was strong amongst our direct clients but there was some misunderstanding about what our company did in the general market. Some locum workers had even thought we were a locum recruitment agency. Now there can be absolutely no confusion.”
Locums Umbrella Services is unique in the industry in that they provide a dedicated service to healthcare workers with their legislation-compliant PAYE payroll solution available to all contractors working in the healthcare and caring industries. They work in line with HMRC regulations and in close consultation with one of the big 4 accounting firms who operate as their legal advisors, guaranteeing complete compliance and an absolutely transparent service.
The new branding was launched on the 28th August with a new website - www.locumsumbrella.co.uk
Chakravarti added, “We took the opportunity to not only change the way we look but also to review the way we worked, the services we offer and to ensure we were offering a really competitive package to the industry. Perhaps the biggest change was to our charging policy, we’ve dropped to a single weekly amount of £24.50, irrespective of the number of timesheets processed or expenses amount. We have also improved our referral scheme.
“I have always played a major role in helping both recruitment agencies and contractors to understand the changes in legislation and what it means to them, and the new website has enabled us to focus that work.
“I am delighted to have been a part of Locums right from the start and see it grow. We have come a long way and it gives me immense pleasure to say that Locums Umbrella is one of the most compliant service providers and a favourite umbrella company for the healthcare sector”.
