If the amount is for less than £10k why not just file a claim with the small claims court?

I believe the bar of proof is quite low. As long as you have some sort of proof you did the work like a rota etc and a contract stating that you would be paid, the rest should be pretty straight forward.

You would be liable for income tax and NI though.

I agree.
The small claims court should also be an option.
