A suborner is a go between for operatives and the employers looking to hire them.
The suborner finds jobs for their operatives and then collects payment. Once the job is complete, the suborner then confirms with the employer and collects any outstanding payment.
Once payment has cleared the suborner transfers most of the funds to the operatives.
A suborner typically takes 10% – 15% for payment. Better operatives may get lower and unproven operatives may be higher especially with the better suborners.
