Kickstart Your Contract Career with Lorien

When looking for an agency to contract through, there are two important questions to ask. 

1. Does the agency have expertise in my market?

2. Will I receive a bespoke, personalised service?

Here at Lorien, the answer to both questions is a resounding yes!

Market Specialists

We’re the UK’s 2nd largest tech recruiter, trusted by over 5,500 contractors. We’ve been living and breathing tech for decades, and fully understand the world of contracting. We help people find work, meet competitive pay rates, and deliver results every single day.

Dedicated Experts

We provide contractors with a single point of contact in the recruitment team and a direct line to our support teams. While many of our back office processes are automated (including online invoicing and electronic contracts), we believe it’s important to have your own point of contact. Your recruitment expert can help you find opportunities, enhance your CV, and provide market insight that benefits your personal career plan.

Consistent Communication

Once you’ve been placed, we’ll keep in regular contact to ensure everything is going smoothly. We’ll host onsite surgeries to address any queries, and in a unique move, allow you to directly contact our MD David Gettins if needed. David recognises that we wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for our exceptional contractors, so he promises to respond within 24 hours.

Our Contractor Care team will always be on hand, which is especially useful for those new to this world. They’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide, including advice on insurance and legal requirements. They also give you a personal walk-through of our systems and processes.

Fair Pay For Fair Work

We are an accredited Living Wage employer, and conduct regular market bench-marking to ensure our contractors are paid fairly. We also offer emergency and faster payments for workers in difficulty – your issues are our issues.

And once you become a Lorien contractor, you are truly part of the Lorien family. This means you have access to a range of additional benefits. These include a 10% discount on Business Insurance cover from Kingsbridge, as well as discounts at various retailers across the country.
