Liquid Friday Logo

Oh, Hello there.

On paper we’re an FCSA accredited provider of umbrella

and agency support services, but really, it’s all about the people!

Our story

Established in 2006, Liquid Friday has gone from modest roots in a small office in Portsmouth city centre, to supporting thousands of contractors and hundreds of recruitment agencies from its Head Office at Port Solent Marina.

In its initial days, the company employed three people and were payrolling a few hundred local contractors. Fast forward 17 years and Liquid Friday, despite many challenging legislative and market challenges, employs 68 people at its Head Office, supporting 5000+ contractors across more than 400 recruitment agencies.

In 2019, the Liquid Friday Group expanded its core service offering with the launch of an Invoice Finance division, offering flexible, fast invoice finance to the recruitment industry.

We’re proud to have one of the highest contractor retention rates in the industry and an overall Trustpilot rating of Excellent.

We Are
What We Do

Our vision is to make everyone we deal with feel good about contracting, and that influences every aspect of what we do and how we do it. Each and every touch point with our clients matters to us. We love to put smiles on faces – whether that’s a recruitment consultant satisfied with a quick turnaround, or sorting a contractor’s payment query.

Our Values.

Everything we do is built around our core values to help us deliver the best possible experience for our contractors and agency clients.

Get it done

Take ownership and do what is needed to give the best experience to our contractors and clients.

Respect others

We will always respect and care for our contractors, clients and each other.

Focus on Growth

Standing still is not an option, we will always move our business forward.

Our Team

 At every point in your Liquid Friday journey, you’re supported by a great bunch of people, who will do everything in their power to help your assignment run smoothly.

From Onboarding to Customer Care to Payroll, our teams are 100% committed to our values,  combining professionalism with personality,  to deliver a friendly, personal service. 

Corporate Responsibility

As a large employer and ethical business, we believe in giving back where we can and encourage this across our organisation.

We embrace equity and diversity in the workplace and community, and are proud ambassadors of both Stonewall and Portsmouth Pride.

Our chosen local Portsmouth charities are St Clare’s Hospice and the Paulsgrove local food bank.

We actively support our inspirational employees in their charitable endeavours, most recently in completing the Great South Run and in raising funds for The Stroke Association.

Additionally we regularly hold fundraisers for national appeals, through activities in Head  Office and our social media channels. In 2022, these included the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal, Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer and Children In Need.

We are also proud supporters of the government’s Kickstart scheme to create job opportunities for 16-24 year olds, and continue to expand our team in order to fully support the needs of our contractor workforce.
