Contractors

Short-term workers for short-term projects

We don't hire a permanent employee for every role. We need someone with specific skills for short-term projects.

What is a contractor

Contractors are not part of a permanent workforce. They are not employees. They are one-person businesses who work for organisations for a short period of time. Whether it's for a couple of weeks or a few months, hiring a contractor helps our business to grow in a more flexible way.

However contractors aren't suitable for every role. 

What defines a contractor?

A contractor is someone who works on a short-term basis, usually on a project. 

Contractors are sometimes referred to as freelance workers or consultants. 

The most important thing to remember is that a contractor is not an employee. Contractors are independent businesses working for us on our premises or representing Therapeutic Dog Services within a specific role within the community.
