Fairer payroll: why should you choose PAYE?

Many supply agencies insist you are paid through an 'umbrella company', where additional payroll deductions significantly reduce your weekly take-home pay.

If you sign up with Protocol Education you'll be paid via PAYE (PAYG) instead, thanks to our own in-house payroll team, meaning you do not incur these additional payroll deductions.
