Contractors and
Temporary Workers

We offer access to the top temporary science jobs, engineering positions and environmental contracts. We support you throughout the lifetime of your contract, so you can get the most from your position and gain valuable skills and experience as you work.

Learn As You Go

There are plenty of reasons why contracting or working in a temporary position is a good idea. Not only do you get to work on a flexible basis but you gain experience in a range of projects and environments. Our goal is to provide support and assistance so you can gain as much valuable knowledge from your current placement and become even more appealing to your next potential employer.

To ensure your time spent at a company is enjoyable, we help you at every step of your contract. We are there for you from the start, preparing everything you need for your first day. You’ll also receive on-going support, such as training on timesheets, payroll and account advice, and regular contact in person or by phone.

One of your first decisions will be how you want to be paid. We’re more than happy to talk you through your options. Here are the two choices available to you:


We pay you direct through the Cranleigh Scientific payroll, taking care of your taxes, NI contributions and all the admin.


We pay your Limited Company which offers you more flexibility to manage your finances in a tax-efficient way. We always recommend that you speak with your accountant before pursuing this option.
