All of our subcontractors must provide CIS verification for all company partners and give evidence of any assessments of accreditations that the business has passed (CHAS, Safe Contractor, Exor etc.).

Businesses must also provide their Health and Safety Policy, in addition to information about who is responsible for Health and Safety. Risk assessments are also required during the application process.

For services that include any aspect of gas, electrics, asbestos or scaffolding, businesses must also demonstrate the associated trades and confirm to the credential to supply them. Businesses providing these services must also ensure that their operatives have the valid qualifications for their relevant trade. These are stated specifically for Gas (Gas Safe), Electric (NECCEIC) or Scaffold (CISRS).

All businesses wishing to subcontract for Axis must also ensure that any operative or subcontractors working on behalf of Axis have been DBS checked. Anyone carrying out onsite work on behalf of Axis must also possess a valid CSCS card that is carried at all times when working with us.

We also ask that all businesses joining our subcontractor fleet support our Training Levy, whereby 2% is deducted from all payments. This pool of funds contributes to training and apprenticeship programmes which play a crucial role in our work to tackle the labour shortage.

You’ll be prompted to upload documents relevant to the trade or service your company provides to complete your application. Common documents required include:

  • Company registration and VAT certificate
  • Proof of residence
  • Insurance certificates
  • Safety documents
  • Trade accreditations

More details of subcontractor requirements can be found via the Axis Sub-Hub application process.
