FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We don't remember signing up for this?!​

Although some people may not be aware of your business signing up, every logo was supplied to us and we should have email confirmation you did.

If that contact has moved, we’ll do our best to make sure the important people (CD or finance) know the situation.

Why does the PPP wage go up every year?

The PPP wage is based on the Living Wage and the London Living Wage. It is independently calculated every year to meet the real cost of living – which is why it goes up every 12 months. These figures can be found on livingwage.org.uk/calculation

What do I do if I encounter a problem with an agency on the PPP?

In the first instance, bring it up with your agency. Either the person who offered you the placement or HR. They may be unaware that agency has signed up. And should be the people to help fix the issue. 

If that falls on deaf ears, email us via our contact page.

How do you police the PPP agencies?​

It’s nearly impossible – unless we do spot checks – that we can properly police every agency. So it’s down to the people on placements to inform us of any issues.

Can you get kicked off the PPP?

Yes. Don’t be the first.

How does my business sign up?​​

Signing up is easy. Just fill in the form on our contact page.

Do you have a PPP logo we can use on our page?​

Yes! We’d love you to publicise you’re a business that is helping improve the industry. Our media pack can be found here.
