Our Managing Director



Lucy Smith – Managing Director

Lucy has worked in the umbrella industry for over 8 years. Much of this time was spent managing one of the most reputable umbrella companies at that time, ContractorUmbrella. However, when the decision was made to relocate the business to Hertfordshire in early 2019, Lucy took the opportunity to reconsider her future within the industry.

Having built some amazing relationships in the industry with agencies, contractors and HMRC, Lucy took the opportunity to return to industry in 2019 with Clarity Umbrella Ltd.

Even with years of experience and a fantastic team behind her, Lucy knew that this would be a challenging time as the “newbie” on the block! However determined to pursue her aims of creating an umbrella with the contractor’s and agencies interests at heart, Lucy is pleased to be progressing with this new chapter of her life.

Lucy is a very hands on director, and will never shy away from conversations with our contractors. As Managing Director, she is happy to pick up the phone, answer any queries and in the unlikely event of any issues, she will be on hand to help put things right.

Lucy is a regular contributor on the Contractor UK forums, has sat on HMRC round table events, written for the Financial Times and is the founder of the AUCAE website. A site which provides resources for contractors and agencies working with umbrella companies in the UK.

“I am so pleased to be backed by an amazing team here at Clarity, and absolutely astounded & humbled by the support I have received from Contractors, Agencies & Partners. So I send out a very genuinely, heart felt thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey!”
