Contractor & Labour Hire

How does this work

  1. It all starts with a call or an email to Pearl Recruitment.
  2. Pearl will arrange a meeting to learn more about exactly what you seeking for in a new employee. This will include both the candidate experience requirements and the cultural and personality fit.
  3. Pearl will externally advertise, contact previously registered candidates and search through third party databases such as Seek Profiles and LinkedIn. During this stage, Pearl is actively marketing your business to prospective candidates to get them excited about the opportunity to hand.
  4. Pearl present you a shortlist of suitable candidates (this can be as many or as little as you require) which includes reference checks and verifications of qualifications.
  5. You have the option on whether you would like to interview the prospective contractor, or simply have them commence work.
  6. Once the candidate is selected and they commence work, Pearl will issue you with a Work Order, which specifies the rates to the contractor and the charge rates to your company.
  7. Pearl engages the contractor as covers all statutory costs such as Payroll Tax, Superannuation, withholds PAYG and takes full responsibility for the payroll of the contractor, included all required Insurances.
