Not all Umbrella Companies are created equal.

Here at Crystal, there are a couple of factors that really set us apart from other umbrella companies. First of all, we understand how additional professional costs can sneak up on us.

Second, we appreciate that your time is a valuable resource. As such, we make sure that our interactive platforms are as user-friendly as possible, to keep your life hassle free. Simply submit your timesheets and expenses in one convenient hub via our web portal “My Crystal” – and leave the rest up to your dedicated account manager. They’ll take care of everything from there. It really is that easy.

We made them happy

  • My contract dealings with Crystal have been smooth with no need for day to day contact, running like clockwork in the background. When ever I have had a need to contact Crystal my AM has always been happy to help, usually calling or emailing me back within an hour or two and answering questions in full. I was more than happy to recommend Crystal to my wife and to other permanent staff members I worked with who were investigating contracting.
