Blackpool-based Danbro provides payroll services to 2,900 contractors working mainly in IT, engineering and local-authority services such as policing and health. Since March 2009 the company has added 500 new contractors, helped by the acquisition of a competitor in May of last year. Earlier this year, founders Damian and Helen Broughton also launched a division providing financial advice tailored to the needs of temporary contractors. During the recession employers have taken on greater numbers of temporary contractors, which has contributed to sales growth of 59% a year, from £15.2m in 2007 to £60.7m in 2010.
