The Company

Established in 1998, Net Temps Limited has built an enviable reputation as a recruitment business that delivers quality workforce solutions to clients with Construction, Utility, Engineering and Manufacturing sectors. Our clients rely on us to find them the best available talent to ensure their projects and programmes of work are completed on time and within budget.

Plans are in place that would allow the business to double in size over the next 3 years offering  you an exciting opportunity to develop your recruitment career within an organisation the truly cares about its employees and their development. Whilst the pandemic may have slowed the progress a little over the last 12 months we have achieved a solid performance due to the quality of the people we employ and the culture of support, hardwork and teamwork that we have fostered throughout.

Your Experience

We are interested in talking to experienced recruitment professionals looking for an employer that can support their aspirations and who allows them to put their own stamp on a desk and division. The two areas we are keen to invest in are Civils & Infrastructure and Warehouse & Logistics. Net Temps already operates with some clients within both of these sectors but sees the opportunity for significant future  growth, giving two experienced recruiters the opportunity to lead business development and ultimately have the opportunity to become divisional managers of the future establishing their own teams.

You must be a skilled communicator both written and verbally and be good on the phone and face to face. Our clients and workers expect to have a positive interaction when dealing with us so you must come fully equipped with a winning personality!

Hard work is normal and you must not be afraid of it, as through it you can achieve exceptional results.

Team work is core to our culture and vibe and you must be able to display willing and experience of working with others to achieve results.

Celebrating success is positively encouraged and an essential part of daily routine, so you need to be comfortable showing excitement when you do something great, which will be often!

The Role

You will be responsible for engaging with and developing clients on behalf of the business to capture their recruitment requirement with an emphasis on temporary workers but keeping one eye on other opportunities like perm. This will involve regular business development activities utilising a combination of phone, intelligent marketing and face to face meetings (where and when permitted or via Zoom/ Teams) to develop customers and gain commitment to use our recruitment services. You will be responsible for the development of customer accounts and the effective growth and delivery of services ensuring their needs are met. You will work closely with the other recruiters and the resource team to help facilitate the transfer of knowledge and opportunity to maximise business results.

The delivery of orders you generate will be supported by an in-house resourcing team to enable you to maximise results.

The standard working week is Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. However recruitment is about the more you put in the more you get out so we will not be offended if you want to put in some extra hours to earn some more money through catching greater results.

Due to the current pandemic Net Temps operates a Covid secure office environment and staggered working between office and home applies. All staff are equipped with technology that allows seamless movement between office working and home working without any disruption to client or candidate services. The mix of office and homeworking may change further as we react accordingly to the pandemic and any easing or tightening of restrictions.

Stepping Up for Charity – The Results

 

Further to our last post, you will recall that as part of our company-wide health and well-being initiative, we’ve asked staff to record the miles that they have either walked or ran in order to “Step Up for Charity”. For each mile recorded Net Temps Limited promised to make a donation of £1 per mile to the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity. In total, our staff walked 909 miles in the 4 week challenge period. Notable mentions go to Claire Carter, Lyndsey Barrow and John Holland for the miles they put under their belt.

Net Temps is therefore proud to announce that it shall be rounding its donation up to £1,000 in the safe knowledge that it will make a difference to many people during these challenging times.

 

 

Stepping Up for Charity

 

As part of our staff health and well being initiative, we will be asking staff to record their miles and for each mile completed we will make a donation to the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity. This is a charity that provides physical,mental and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families in the UK and Ireland.

This is a great way for us to encourage staff to spend time outdoors, whilst also helping others.

IR35 Postponed

 

Last night the Government announced that reform to the off-payroll working rules has been postponed for one year from 6 April 2020 until 6 April 2021. The rules would have applied to Limited Company Contractors providing services to large or medium-sized private sector organisations in an attempt to ensure that people who were working like employees, but through their own limited company pay broadly the same tax as employees.

HMRC has confirmed that the off-payroll working rules are postponed not cancelled and that the intention of the postponement is to provide businesses and individuals with support in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Helping the Local Community

 

As part of our on-going commitment to social responsibility, Clare Carter and Fay Hodges (based in our Worksop Office) took time out of their busy Christmas preparations to provide shoe boxes containing essentials to Hope, a homeless charity in Worksop. They also provided a food hamper for the Bassetlaw Food Bank to help those in the Bassetlaw community suffering hardship and poverty. Well done Claire and Fay !

Net Temp’s Annual Business Review Day

 

Yesterday, the Net Temps’ management team hosted our annual business review day, where key business areas were discussed with staff as part of our staff engagement strategy.

IR35 Changes in April 2020

What is IR35?

IR35 is a tax legislation which came into force in the year 2000.  Its purpose was to address and identify individuals who were avoiding having their earnings processed via PAYE by using a corporate entity to achieve a more efficient and lower tax deduction.  The legislation allowed HMRC to challenge those people who supplied their services to a client via a company (whether that was a Personal Service Company, Managed Service Company or Composite Company) and who HMRC felt should have been classed as a “disguised employee”.  This basically allowed HMRC to pierce the corporate veil from a tax perspective and ensure that they paid tax in the same way as a permanent employee.

IR35 therefore introduced two types of contractors  – those that are “Inside IR35” who are deemed to be employees, and who make PAYE deductions from all contract earnings and those that were “Outside IR35” because they provide a genuine service, in business on their own account, with significant financial risk and no mutuality of obligation so they should not be subject to the tax treatment applicable to employees.

Blunt Tool

This legislation wasn’t as successful as anticipated and was subject to much criticism. It failed to provide a clear test of what an ’employee’ and a ‘genuine business’ actually was, and it also left the legal responsibility for determination up the individual as to whether they fell inside or outside of IR35.

In 2017, HMRC changed its approach, issuing new legislation directed at the public sector and redirecting the legal responsibility for determining the status of a contractor to the end client. This legislation will now be rolled out to the private sector in April 2020.

Why is this important to me?

From April 2020, recruitment agencies and clients will need to work closely together to ensure the correct tax determination of any limited company contractor that is placed on site.  This is not a new concept. Since 2014, similar considerations have been in place regarding the self-employed – only those contractors not under (or subject to the right of) supervision, direction and control are eligible to receive a CIS payment.

According to the legislation and guidance, clients must take reasonable care when assessing and classifying whether a limited company contractor falls inside or outside of IR35. Emphasis is also put upon carrying out individual determinations, and avoiding blanket policies. Clients are expected to carry out the determinations and pass these down the chain via their recruitment agencies to the limited company contractor, who has a right to challenge that decision via a complaints procedure.

Penalties and fines will be imposed where the failure to adhere to the legislation has occurred. For example; where a client has failed to use reasonable care to complete a determination leading to an underpayment of tax, the client will face penalties. Where the agency has not made appropriate tax deductions to the limited company contractor’s pay, the agency will face penalties.

Accordingly, both clients and agencies will need to modify internal procedures and upskill staff to be able to correctly identify and apply the new legislation.

Net Temps are already working collaboratively with clients to ensure that procedures are in place for adhering to the new legislation; which also applies where subcontractors are paid directly by clients via limited companies.

Current considerations include; amongst other matters:

  • Assessing the contractor population in order to determine the extent of the problem;
  • Identifying which staff of the client should be responsible for issuing status decisions and at what stage of the recruitment lifecycle;
  • What considerations should form part of the Status Determination;
  • Maintaining suitable records
  • Looking at the cost implications of the status determinations whether that is inside or outside IR35.

If you are a client or a limited company contractor and wish to find out more about IR35 and its impact, call us on 0115 9400 968. We’re happy to help.

VAT Reverse Charge Delayed

HMRC has reflected upon its decision to implement the VAT Reverse Charge on 1 October 2019, after concluding that UK businesses have had insufficient time to prepare.

Accordingly, it has decided to delay implementation for a period of 12 months. The VAT Reverse Charge will now operate from 1 October 2020. The link below provides additional guidance:
