At RSR Regulatory, we promote regulatory services opportunities to three broad candidate types:

  • Candidates with previous regulatory work experience;
  • Candidates from similar public service sectors;
  • Professionals from market segments which are subject to the specific regulator’s regime.

For example we attract solicitors for our customer the Solicitor’s Regulatory Authority, senior security professionals for the Security Industry Authority and forensic accountants for the Financial Conduct Authority.

We are committed to matching your experience and talents with the right organisations. The sheer scope of our market, coupled with the almost uniquely consistent skill sets required across each sector, puts a wealth of temporary, permanent and freelance options at your fingertips.

Temporary Recruitment:

Red Snapper Recruitment are a key supplier to those who prefer the control that contracting work for those who are seeking it within our core sectors.

If you are looking for a stop-gap job or prefer the control that taking contract work gives you in managing your own time then Red Snapper can help organise your career. We support a range of career paths in the Police and offer temporary roles consistently on our job board.

Payment terms as a contractor/ temporary worker:

There are several options available to you:

Payment via Pay As You Earn (PAYE) Schemes

Working as a contractor/temporary worker via a recruitment business means being paid in the manner most people are used to. This means getting paid ‘net’ by the recruitment business.

Payment via your own limited company

As you are selling your labour without being employed, setting up a self-managed limited company (SMLC) is an option you can consider.  A contractor wishing to use a SMLC needs to comply with a series of tax rules which are named IR35 (link to IR35 Information).

Payment via an umbrella company

An umbrella company is a hybrid. It delivers many of the tax efficiencies of SMLCs, while ensuring the worker is compliant in terms of IR35 regulations.

It’s designed to deliver tax efficient payment services for contractors. All umbrella companies used by workers must be FCSA accredited, you can find which umbrella companies are accredited by using this link

Permanent Recruitment:

If you are a candidate with an experienced skill set and are looking for your next permanent role within a regulator or authority then we can help. RSR Regulatory work on roles within Regulatory Bodies, Watchdogs, Non Departmental Public Bodies (NDPB) and Obudsman’s across the UK.

We work with a number of clients looking for valued skill sets on a permanent basis. You can learn more about the kind of roles we represent through our job board.
