Are you an Umbrella worker?

JobsAware is here to support the rights of workers against exploitation and scams in the labour market. As part of our work to improve standards for non-permanent workers, such as agency and umbrella workers, we have partnered with a number of umbrella organisations to pilot an awareness scheme.

The two founding partners are Workwell™ and Pendragon Umbrella, part of Pendragon Consultancy. Pilot scheme members have agreed to a set of principles of working to lead the way for the rest of the umbrella sector to do the same and help address issues and share information. You can find out more about the awareness scheme pilot and these organisations in our Press Release here: Press Releases.

If you are looking for guidance around an issue you are facing as an umbrella worker, you might be able to find the answer in our A-Z of Worker Help, a directory of advice. We also have a page on advice for agency workers, which features a section on umbrella company working.
