OK !! So you're on the hunt for a great new role and thinking of contracting through TRC. Although we're not there just yet we want to give you as much flexibility as possible if everything goes ahead.

We've worked with thousands of contractors over the years and most understand how everything works – but if this is your first time with TRC you have a number of options available to you as an independent contractor, depending upon your own personal circumstances.

Just let your consultant know your preference and when we get to signing on the dotted line (fingers crossed). It will speed up the process. 


The 3 Options :


( minimal administration )

A Casual Employee is not paid annual leave, personal leave, public holiday pay, long service leave etc but is paid a rate which includes a 25% Casual Loading to make up for this.  Becoming a Casual Employee is the simplest option as The Recruitment Company will pay super and tax on your behalf.  Here is an example of a Casual Contract.


( more administration but maximum tax benefits )

As a PTY Independent Contractor you need your own PTY Ltd company, ABN, ACN and are responsible for all you own taxes, superannuation and statutory contributions.  This includes the three important insurances : Workers Compensation, Public Liability and Profession Indemnity.  We will also need an invoice from you to make any payments. This is an example of a PTY Contract.


( external payroll specialists ) 

TRC are the experts at recruitment, our contractor management partner Ayers are the experts at payroll.  These guys provide a streamlined payroll and contractor management solution. All of our systems are integrated so timesheets, invoicing and payments can be conducted seamlessly with Ayers and they can help with salary packaging, salary sacrifice and business expense processing services. We will also work with other management companies if you have another one you prefer.  We engage with you on a PTY Contract for this option.

As an Independent Contractor you are not eligible for Annual Leave, Personal Leave, Long Service leave or any other employee benefits. 




All contractors, regardless of the option you go for, are eligible for The Recruitment Company's contractor benefits package, Jurassic Perks.  This industry leading benefits packages allows you to take advantage of discounts with over 500 retailers.
