As experts in product management, marketing and eCommerce interim recruitment, we often get asked by our clients what fair and competitive interim day rates are within the current market.

Contractors can achieve a good day rate. Although rates can appear high, it’s important to consider some of the employment benefits that the contractor is walking away from. These could be life insurance, health cover, income protection insurance, as well as income tax implications.

We work with our employers on a case-by-case basis to set realistic day rates for interim support required. We take into account aspects such as the experience needed, the company, project objective, contract length and essential specific domain experience required.

As well as finding the right candidate, we will take care of the offer process and be on hand to help with any negotiations.
