Information for Contractors

A contractor is anyone who is doing work for your organisation, but they are not your employee. You may use contractors to help with:

  • business activities
  • maintenance
  • cleaning
  • catering
  • day to day tasks.

Almost all organisations use contractors at some time.  They could be organisations or self-employed individuals.

A contractor may hire other companies to assist with parts of the contract they have with you.  These companies or individuals are known as sub-contractors.
