How long will it take to register and start work?

The sooner you start the process, the sooner you could be in work. We aim to complete the registration process within four weeks.

 The quickest way to register is online, but you can also pick up a form from your local Swiis office or ask us to post you one.

As well as a completed application form, we’ll need a copy of your CV and evidence of any professional qualifications. We’ll make the necessary DBS checks, ask you to fill in a health questionnaire and invite you for an interview with one of our specialist consultants. Then we can start matching you with jobs.

You’ll be paid weekly against your authorised timesheet. Your salary will be paid directly into a bank or building society account. Unless you are self-employed, we will deduct the appropriate rates of income tax and National Insurance contributions for you.

If you’ve agreed expenses or subsistence rates with the client on your behalf, you’ll need to keep your receipts to support your submitted claims.
