UK Contractor Work Permit

Contractors don’t have an easy time trying to get an UK work permit. The process is geared towards longer-term employees, and it often results in mountains of paperwork for contractors. It’s more difficult because most work permits are assigned to permanent employees of an British company. As a contractor the end client won’t employ you directly. Finding a workable solution to this problem is difficult, but with the aid of a contractor management company in UK (otherwise known as an umbrella company) you can be sponsored for a work permit that can be used with any end client in UK.
