What is temp/contracting?

Contractors are people who work on a contract basis, they are not regular employees. Each contract might span a day, a week or even a few months. The use of the term “Temp” and "Contractor" are often used interchangeably.

There are benefits to becoming a contractor including flexibility on working hours and experience in different roles, industries and companies. Just remember you'll only be paid for the work you do, and you won't accrue annual leave or sick leave, though the benefit of contracting is a higher rate of pay which more than makes up for the reduced entitlements.
