Our entire product suite is fully mobile enabled, this delivers easy access for candidates utilising the app through to managers and agencies managing departmental requirements on the go.
One of the major benefits to all of our solutions is the efficiency savings that can be made by operating a streamlined process to manage your various staff groups and rota requirements. It’s one stop shop that allows full oversight of your entire staff management and recruitment process.

Timesheeting is entirely driven through the system, from creation through to submission and approval. This enables accurate invoicing to be generated at the click of a button, considerably reducing the administrative cost associated with invoice consolidation that many companies and organisations have to endure.

Clarity Direct Engagement & KPMG
Since 2014 Clarity Workforce Solutions has been supported by KPMG to help develop and implement our Direct Engagement (DE) solution for the healthcare sector. Through our alliance relationship with KPMG we developed this solution with appropriate consideration of the tax, pensions and employment law implications for Clarity and our customers.
The Direct Engagement solution provides an opportunity for organisations to engage directly, usually on an employment contract, with temporary staff that are introduced by an agency.
This alternative to a typical ‘agency worker’ supply, allows for a VAT saving on the payment made to the temporary staff member. The key to the success of Clarity’s system is the way this is done in practice, with due care and consideration of the tax and practical implications and the support we receive from KPMG.
In addition to the VAT efficiency generated by direct engagement, our solution also delivers immediate additional savings of up to 5% of temporary staffing spend through process improvements and greater transparency of rates and cost.
Clarity’s innovative technology provided Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust with real-time management information which allowed us to regain control over temporary staffing and identify opportunities to reduce agency spend and use. The insights gained from this system will save the Trust at least £650K.
I would highly recommend Clarity to any NHS organisation. The Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust approached Clarity to support the improvement of our internal processes and commercial arrangements for the management of locum doctors. Clarity surpassed all expectations and has helped the Trust formulate a clear improvement plan that has saved the Trust circa £1.2 million of annualised savings.
The implementation of the Clarity service is an excellent example of how to manage relationships and build trust between a supplier and a client. With effective, targeted communications and constant availability of the team, we have built a lasting collaboration. The support throughout the project has been second to none.
I have seen the potential of the Clarity Roster system and feel sure it is the most efficient way of managing ALL clinical rosters and staff supply in both Acute and Community NHS settings in the future. Firstly, it provides a SAFE umbrella platform to host all substantive, bank and agency workers, doctors job planning and existing nurse rostering systems. Having implemented numerous roster systems in my career, Clarity Roster is the only system that will help Trusts maximise the benefits realisation of their existing systems and develop new ways of tackling the ever-increasing problem of an over reliance on a temporary workforce.
