People Group Services wants to help support the people of Ukraine. You can too, just by donating your pennies.
At least 3 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future. One of the best ways to help is by donating cash through trusted charities and aid organisations.
Would you like to help us in raising much needed cash to help?
All we ask is that you opt to donate the pennies in your wages from your net pay. We will match your donation on a weekly basis and contribute to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
National insurance contributions are set to rise from 6th April 2022 for both employers and employees. The reason for the increase is to help fund both improvements to social care and also provide a boost for the NHS. It’s believed that this new legislation will see the Treasury’s purse grow significantly by an extra £12bn every year. The increase will affect almost everybody in employment. All Class 1 and Class 4 National Insurance tax rates will be increased by 1.25%.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022
There will be a four-day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June 2022, meaning we will be given two days off work to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years of service. The late May bank holiday will be moved to Thursday 2nd June 2022 and the new, additional bank holiday will be on Friday 3rd June. People Group Services will be closed on these days Thursday 2nd June and Friday 3rd June to join in the celebrations.
Payroll dates will be affected but we will guarantee payment before the bank holiday. We will update you nearer the time regarding deadlines to ensure you receive your pay that week.
The holiday year runs from 1st September to 31st August annually unless there is an alternative arrangement with your agency.
Please remember that if you have holiday entitlement you should take this when you are not working. If you take holiday in the weeks when you are not working or otherwise being paid this will minimise the tax you have to pay.
Holiday can be requested and booked through your contractor portal under the ‘Holiday’ tab.
If you experience any issues with booking your holiday then please email our team: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0345 034 1530.
