Contract and Labour Hire Recruitment


Pearl provides contract labour-hire solutions for both blue and white collar positions and has expertise in providing contractors for as short term as 4 hours, through to ongoing assignments, across a range of industries.

How does this work?

The client is actively involved in the selection process. Once a suitable contractor is agreed upon, the contractor is engaged through Pearl. Pearl will take care of all payroll obligations including; deduction of withholding tax, payment of superannuation, payroll tax and coverage for Professional Indemnity Insurance ($10M), Public Liability Insurance ($10M), and Workers Compensation Insurance ($50M). The contractor completes a weekly timesheet which will be signed by an authorised signatory of the client – Pearl then send a weekly invoice, clearly outlining the contractor and the associated hourly charge.
