Auto enrolment pensions for umbrella contractors

Sterling Umbrella automatically places contractors onto a work place pension scheme after a period of 12 weeks on our umbrella scheme. It is our duty as an employer to aid our contractors in saving for their retirement, by firstly enrolling them into the pension scheme but secondly providing our own employer contributions towards their pension fund.

Sterling Umbrella’s chosen pension scheme

Our chosen pension scheme is NEST, a not-for-profit organisation which is run in the interest of its members. The NEST pension is a straightforward scheme that provides members with one retirement pot, an ideal solution for those working on temporary assignments, such as contractors.
