Founded back in 1998, Sterling has built a formidable reputation for providing sub-contracted labour to thousands of recruitment agencies across the UK. The Sterling Group can offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of both contractors and recruitment agencies.
Initially starting out covering the construction industry and associated trades, we now operate across all sectors and holding preferred supplier status with major UK recruitment agencies.
Over the years we are proud to have been involved with major UK projects going back as far as the Millenium Dome, Heathrow T5, Wembley stadium , through to more recent projects such as the 2012 Olympic village, 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Manchester Airport Line Metrolink.
Our industry has seen many changes over the years. The 2007 MSC legislation, the introduction of Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) in 2010, pensions auto-enrolment, last years False Self-employment legislation and most recently the governments scrutiny of the Umbrella industry have all proved to be challenging for the industry as a whole. We are very proud that Sterling has adapted with each of these challenges keeping compliance and customer service at the forefront of our focus.
At Sterling we take looking after our clients needs very seriously. Compliance and Customer service are at the forefront of our focus. We are an APSCo Affiliate Member and Professional Passport Approved which gives added reassurance that we do things properly. In addition, we have recently had a full HMRC Audit and had our dispensation renewed to cover all expenses claimed by our Sterling Umbrella employees.
