the issue

Brewin Dolphin began working closely with giant to gain specialist support whilst preparing for the off-payroll working legislation introduced in April 2021. Brewin engage with lots of contractors for different roles and wasn't sure what steps needed to be taken to ensure compliance post IR35. They were also experiencing issues with their existing screening and onboarding provider that was essentially slowing down the recruitment process.

the solution

The solution to remove the off-payroll working risk from Brewin Dolphin is our award winning PAYE solution, giant umbrella. We assisted the team with a seamless transition for their contractors from their limited companies to umbrella engagement. We then looked to provide Brewin with a solution to speed up the onboarding process, which was giant screening. Our fully-managed screening solution allowed the team at Brewin Dolphin to welcome workers quickly and compliantly with an end to end onboarding solution.

the feedback

"The screening service is very responsive and efficient allowing us to move quickly in a rapidly changing contractor market." Linda Cartwright – Head of Human resources Brewin Dolphin

"I feel that the client experience is at the heart of the service provided by giant. When queries or concerns are raised they are quick to respond and together we are able to reach a resolution. All aspects of their service are well delivered and their approach to working with clients is very collaborative rather than referring back to contracts and T&Cs which is often the case with service providers." Lisa Burt – HR Operations leader Brewin Dolphin
