I will soon start on renovating a house in North Wales and I would like to hire one or two labourers for a few months.

Where is the best place to find them?

I have tried a placing ads but with no response. I asked a few tradesmen if they knew anyone seeking work...no luck. Same with friends and family...

Is there somewhere else i can try?

Suggestions very welcome. Thank you

As I understand it, it doesn't work like that anymore. Years ago the job centre would have rows and rows of cards with jobs, you walked along, picked a card took it to a desk and they would phone up for you, apart from the fact its all computerized now, its up to YOU (the job seeker) to find jobs to apply for, and to prove you have actively been looking.
That said the likes of Tesco, you can't go in and ask for a job, you have to apply on line :dunno:

Not being "funny" but as an employer, would they also not have to offer them a pension? It does seem daft.

You could try indeed. Some people on there work as self employed. I sometimes subcontract them when I need an extra hand to get ahead of myself.

Stick an ad on gumtree or the local jobs page on Facebook. Make clear it’s a self employed temporary position and that way they are liable to pay their own tax and ni off the wage.
You’ll probably get folk messaging you wanting to work cash in hand....

Do you have to have employers liability insurance? Even if it is cash in hand.

Wouldn't have thought so, as you are "Not employing any one" :wink: :wink:

I am thinking that if you did have ELI, and there was a claim would they not want details of who employee is, but you can't give details because you really don't know, then the insurance might tell the tax man, and as you are the company, you get in trouble

Positive soul, aren't you? Any comments about the applicability (or otherwise) of CDM, here?
