Whatever your view with regard Zero-Hours Contracts, they are arguably becoming increasingly common. If an employee engaged on a ‘zero hours’ contract,  who work as and when required falls sick, will SSP be payable?


From zero to nearly a million customers in 15 years doesn’t happen without brilliant business advice. Rob has supplied this in bucket loads.

I do not know anyone as good at what they do than Angela! I trust her advice and value her opinion on everything without a question of a doubt and have called upon her guidance continuously throughout the last five years I have worked with her. I don’t think of Angela as an external supplier but as a pinnacle member of the team, a view I know my fellow directors share.

When I or the team have any major decisions to make with regards the business she is often the first call, no matter if it is related to financial or business support and advice.

She is very flexible and provides us with bespoke guidance that works around our business, and it is very clear she is always thinking to the future with our best interests in mind.
