WHAT IS A CONTRACTOR?
Independent contractors are individuals who provide services to your business under set terms and usually for a fixed duration of time while keeping their independence in how they perform their work for you. A contractor forms part of your team for a fixed amount of time, usually until the project they are working on is finished. You will only have to pay for services as needed and as contractors are self employed you will not have to worry about paying benefits, certain taxes or being fully legally liable. Contractors will hit the ground running immediately and will not require specialist training from you as they are highly specialised and can apply their skill sets immediately for any company within their respective fields.
DO I NEED A CONTRACTOR?
You need a contractor if:
your resource requirement arises out of a fixed one time project or has a time fixed time period for any another reason.
you do not have the resources to hire a permanent employee but you can afford a professional for a short period of time.
you do not have the time or resources to train the new team member and need immediate support in a specific project.
HOW DO I FIND THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR?
It can be hard to find the right contractor for your business usually due to the fact that within the skill set you require there are many to choose from and you do not know who to give your trust to or because there is a skill shortage and the good contractors get engaged quickly by your competitors or ask for day rates which are simply not affordable.
Ray Associates can not only help you find the person with the right skill set and the right experience, but also for a day rate you can afford. Your business will also have the bonus of being provided with a short term cashflow releif as we will pay the contractors invoices on your behalf, giving your business a short term credit in between the work carried out and payment being due.
