Learn how Rocket can benefit you, making your world so much easier when it comes to getting paid or paying people. You can also learn about the amazing team that keeps the Rocket flying.

Compliance is Key

We are proud to be Saferec Certified, showing our commitment to worker welfare and fair play. Every payslip we produce goes through rigorous audit processes, to show that all deductions we make are correct, they are being paid to HMRC and the worker takes home exactly what they should.

Variety of Pay Models

We have a variety of pay models at your disposal, to truly find the best way to pay your workers and make sure they are maximising take home pay, in a legitimate manner each week. This benefits your workers and ensures no one is paid through the wrong model just because it suits us in the long run.

We Value our Clients

We value our clients and do not believe you should be passed around the houses or stuck in a long queue on hold. That is why we have dedicated account managers that look after you and your consultants, on a direct dial for instant access to information.

Right to Work Checks

Right to work checks are imperative for allowing your workers onto site and for getting them paid on time every week. Due to our in house compliance team, Rocket conduct RTW checks on every worker we pay and can advise on the legality of each worker.

Faster Payments Service

We make all payments using the Faster Payments Service, ensuring that all funds are released immediately and arrive in your workers accounts on time, before your workers wake up on a Friday morning. This eliminates, questions, complaints and no shows.

Flexible Fee Service

We do not believe in charging every worker a set fee, with no flexibility or movement. That’s why we have a flexible fee structure, that can differ for all agencies and include sliding scales where necessary, creating fairness for your workers.

Meet the Team

Alex Hough

Managing Director
With extensive experience in the payroll industry, Alex found that payroll companies were either all the same or lacking in many areas. This is why Rocket Paye was born. A market leading, contractor focused, all around transparent payroll specialist, that is going above and beyond to be different.

Ellissa Williams

Payroll Manager
Vastly experienced in payroll at both Bureau and Umbrella levels, Ellissa prepares, manages, updates and processes our client’s payroll, ensuring your contractors are paid on time each Friday. Did you know, Ellissa has just passed her CIPP payroll course and got 99% in her final mark!

Sam Binning

Business Development Manager
A wee Scottish lad, looking after our Northern affairs, Sam joins us with previous experience working at "one of the big boys" after seeing the exciting project Rocket Paye have in place. An ex-tour golfing pro, have a go if you think you're good enough!

Emma Knight

Business Development Manager
With a background in construction and logistics recruitment, followed by a lengthy tenure in payroll, Emma brings a wealth of knowledge in all things payroll and employment. A professional DJ, but sadly not available for Christmas Party hire.

Julia Kazakova

Account Manager
A top class account manager that has come from a different industry, but has taken to payroll and servicing our clients like a duck to water. Thorough, diligent and multi-lingual, a real pleasure to have at Rocket Paye.

Carolyn Herd

Account Manager
Our softly spoken and super friendly South African, aiding workers and clients with all of their queries on a day to day basis. Carolyn has strong business acumen, even owning her own business. So if you need a payslip resent or anti-wrinkle cream, you know who to call.

Business Support Administrator
Mr Prime, any flavour and any kind, Igor uses his love for energy drinks and maintains complete focus on the task in hand. An integral part of the business, making sure all operations run smooth and candidates get paid on time, every time.

Linda Kerekes

Client Administrator
New to the Umbrella world but a very fast learner, Linda will be an important point of contact, speaking to your candidates, setting them up and getting them ready for payroll. Hungry to succeed and also born in Hungary... we don't make the jokes!

Eric and Nala

Office Hype Squad
Their sole job is to entertain, keep morale high and look cute all day every day. They definitely earn their puppy pennies! You may on the odd occasion hear a bark if you call the office, that will be Eric trying to help you out.
