What services do you offer?
We do anything that typically fits within a Corporate Affairs or Communications function. Here is a list of our disciplines.
How long is the typical commtract?
It ranges from 12 hours to 12 months. Some projects might be a short piece of writing done on a weekend, whereas others might be a long term consultancy.
Are Commtractors employees or consultants?
Commtractors are consultants or independent contractors. If you want to engage them in an employment relationship we can arrange this – please contact us directly to do so.
Who pays the Commtractor’s superannuation and tax?
The Commtractor is a consultant or an independent contractor. They are responsible for their own taxation and superannuation affairs.
What if I am not quite sure what I am looking for?
Even though we are a technology company we haven’t lost sight of the importance of client support. Commtract is owned and run by communications experts. If you want to talk to one of us to discuss a project, please contact us directly.
How experienced are the Commtractors?
At minimum they have three years’ experience in communications. Beyond that it varies. We have everyone from the young hot-shots just starting out in a communications careers to the experienced veterans who have run agencies and functions.
How do I know your Commtractors deliver quality?
Before anyone is approved to the platform they are interviewed, screened and vetted. Clients also provide us feedback on their work once a project is complete.
How much does it cost?
It’s absolutely free to post a project, and if we cannot find the right talent then there are no costs at all. If you do engage a Commtractor then we add 15 percent to their budget. If they are so good you want them to go full time, then we charge 15 percent of the first years remuneration. This is all in the Terms & Conditions.
Can I post my project anonymously?
Yes, of course you can. We can also make sure people with only certain skills or experience see the project. For example, for a highly sensitive project, a client might only want less than ten people to see it. For a complex project, a client may only want people with 30 years’ experience to see it.
How does the invoicing work?
Commtractors invoice clients through our platform. If this does not suit your company, please contact us and we can arrange a different process.
