- If you cannot undertake an assignment please inform Sigmar Recruitment. To prevent unnecessary home calling Sigmar Recruitment would advise its members to inform their Consultant of their weekly availability.
- If a company cancels your assignment at short notice, we will contact you immediately and make every effort to find you a new assignment – please ensure that you are contactable at all times.
- One no show will result in the candidate being removed from our database.
- Please ensure that your Timesheets are written clearly in black ink with all sections completed including date, breaks taken etc, and all hours totalled.
- Use a separate timesheet for each new assignment.
- It is your responsibility to ensure timesheets are signed by the relevant supervisor in your company and have the company name, address and week ending date. We cannot process unsigned or incomplete timesheets.
- Sigmar Recruitment’s system of payment is to fund your bank account each Thursday a week in arrears provided timesheets are submitted to us by close of business on the previous Friday.
- All new candidates must provide Sigmar Recruitment with their most recent P45 on commencement of your assignment. Failure to do so will result in immediate Emergency Tax deductions of 20% on the first €616 of taxable pay and 41% on the remainder for the first 8 weeks. In the absence of a P45 your PPS number must be provided, otherwise Emergency Tax of 41% will be deducted on everything!

This takes 2-3 weeks before issue. You will be asked for the Employer Registration Number which is 63732520 and the Employer Unit Number which is 959. You will also need to quote your PPS number.
