Why do we charge an admin fee?

  • It's a simple, fuss-free, time-saving process and possibly offers cost savings for the client as well, particularly for those who are already outsourcing their payroll function
  • Robert Walters will manage the contractors' payroll, leave, insurance coverage (e.g. professional liablility insurance) and other employee benefits, so our clients will only receive once invoice from us at the end of each month
  • Robert Walters is committed to manage the contractor throughout the whole contract period, and will arrange for a replacement at no extra charge should the contractor resign before the contract ends
  • Our client is able to expense the invoice as a service fee, hence avoiding the need to justify for headcounts
  • Robert Walters ensures that the contractor is always paid on time, which gives him/her peace of mind
  • Robert Walters offers administrative support for the contractor such as visa applications, travel arrangements, writing support letters etc.

Advantages of hourly rates

Robert Walters would advise both clients and candidates to consider hourly rates for contract jobs for the following reasons:

For clients: It is more cost effective as you only pay for what you use (i.e. the number of hours put in by the contractor).

For candidates: You get paid exactly for the amount of work/hours that you have put in, and your rewards are directly proportionate to your efforts. The more hours you work, the more you will receive.
