What is temping / contracting?

Contractors are people who work on a contract basis, they are not regular employees. Each contract might span a day, a week or even a few months. The use of the term “Temp” and "Contractor" are often used interchangeably.

There are benefits to becoming a contractor including flexibility on working hours and experience in different roles, industries and companies. Just remember you'll only be paid for the work you do, and you won't accrue annual leave or sick leave, though the benefit of contracting is a higher rate of pay which more than makes up for the reduced entitlements.

What are my options?

In choosing the right option for you, you need to consider your personal and financial circumstances. We strongly recommend that you obtain your own independent financial and tax advice before you determine the most suitable contracting option for you.

As a Walters People contractor you have the following contracting options to choose from:

1. Contracting on a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) basis

This option is where Walters People manages all aspects of your pay, superannuation and workers' compensation.

2. Contracting as an incorporated company (Pty Ltd Company)

This option is where you contract through your own proprietary limited company. 

3. Contracting through a Management Company

If you have chosen to contract through this option, we will need all the information in relation to the management company at the on-boarding stage to ensure you are paid as quickly as possible
