FAQs

Why should I outsource to you instead of employing a temporary person when I need one?

Apples & Oranges are not paid a salary by their clients, we run our own business and we are paid for the work we do for you on an agreed hourly rate, therefore no employer obligations are involved.

When you work with Apples & Oranges we immediately start to build a relationship with you and your company, we get to know about your company ethos and what your objectives are, we become a part of your team.

Hiring a temporary member of staff, as and when required, for a day or two here and there will probably mean that you will have a different person each time. Additionally, if you hire a temporary member of staff via an agency, you usually have to employ them for a minimum of 4 hours; you have to pay for their hourly rate and the agency fee which includes, NI, WTR, pension contribution %. Whereas, when you use the service offered by Apples & Oranges, you will pay for the hour/s you actually want, even if it’s only half an hour!
