Contractor passthrough services

Save time, money and resource with Whitehall Resources Contractor Passthrough Service.We launched our Contractor Passthrough Service in 2013 in response to growing demand from our clients. They wanted a service that reduced the time, resources and spend required to manage their contractor base. We tackle the challenges of unfavourable terms and unapproved vendors and can engage and onboard contractors on your behalf, helping you to do what you do best.Hundreds of contractors have been managed through our passthrough service across the UK, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia.

Big enough to cope, small enough to care

We currently have a dedicated team and have been trading since 2007. During that time, we have built a business recognised by The Sunday Times’ Best Companies to Work For and have grown to over £55m turnover.

We have the processes, governance, systems and scalability to deliver against your contractor needs, offering a personal, people-focused and solution-orientated service. Our clients matter, our candidates matter and our colleague’s matter.
