FCSA is an independent industry association which has been founded to set standards for companies providing services to the professional freelance workforce and give this vital community a voice.
The association was formed in 2008 by the contracting industry’s three leading companies Parasol, Giant and Brookson, in response to a stream of proposed regulation which revealed a lack of understanding from Government as to how the flexible labour market operates. Association members offer professional services to tens of thousands of contractors across a range of sectors including IT, healthcare, oil and gas, energy and finance.
FCSA has been instrumental in producing an industry leading code of conduct for the first time. The code of conduct encompasses the broad range of businesses that operate in the service providers sector, including umbrella organisations and businesses providing support services to limited companies. It outlines the professional standards that FCSA believe should apply to the sector and is designed to encourage best practice across the industry.
