Tristan backed Greg Barrows in 2012 to set up a payroll service company to service all of the HCIG (nGage Specialist Recruitment) businesses as well as other recruitment companies. IRPS Payroll Services is the recruitment industry’s umbrella of choice; they provide clear, uncomplicated and easy to understand HMRC-compliant payroll solutions for contractors and freelancers, coupled with an outstanding employee support team.
“After having spent many years investing in recruitment companies, I decided to branch out into the umbrella and payroll market. This is a market which generally has a poor reputation for service. Umbrella and Payroll services make a direct impact on recruitment business productivity and I wanted to create a company, not just for my portfolio but for other recruitment businesses across the UK, which provides a reliable and efficient service.”
