When asked why CUC decided to become a member, Peter Starmer, CUC's Managing Director stated:
"At Contractors Umbrella Company (CUC) we firmly believe that the contractor come first. This means ensuring that each and every transaction, communication and solution is effected in a timely and compliant manner. Our decision to join the AUCAE initiative is based on these core ethics. In our opinion, the Umbrella Company industry has a financial duty of care to its contractors. When one company takes a risk, it endangers the sustainability of the industry. CUC is proud to be part of an organisation with a shared goal: compliance and equality. This initiative provides a fair arena where Quality and Customer service reign. More importantly, we collectively provide an industry in which contractors, recruitment agencies and clients have long term confidence."
