Taking on staff

I have been approached to quote for a job whic I know will be too much for me to complete on my own alongside my other clients.  I have been considering expanding and taking on staff and this seems a good opportunity.  I have someone in mind to employ.  They are AAT Qualified, but have not kept up  their membership.  They have, however been teaching AAT, so knowledge is up to date.

What things do I need to consider if I decide to go ahead with this?  My first thoughts are notifying ICB for under my practice license, employment contract, payroll, insurance (both professional indemnity and employers liability).  Anything else I have forgotten?

Thanks

I am following this post, I've emailed ICB four times over the last month with almost exactly the same question to try to get some advice but have had no answer. 

Any advice from members running a practice with staff would be most appreciated

I am interested in this too

Perhaps it would be a good topic for ICB TV?

Hello Penny,

I am employing two staff members currently and you didn’t forget about anything. Employer Liability Insurance, contract of employment. payroll You need to add staff member to your professional indemnity insurance, add staff name on ICB in section my practice details. I am using small HR company for all staff paperwork, contract of employment confidentiality agreements etc.

Good Luck!

 Thank you.  That's reassuring to know.  Feels a very big step, but one I have been toying with for a while.  If I win this new client, they are large enough to hopefully make employing staff viable.

In addition I always CRB check my staff. Further peace of mind.
