    Onsider Mission

    Better Rates & Work-Life Balance

    Onsider was envisioned to integrate highly-skilled contractors into key project positions, benefitting both the hiring companies and the individual contractors. We developed a system that offers contractors control over their work-life balance, the ability to set their own charge-out rates and the flexibility to choose projects that match their skill-set.

    In return, companies are provided with the reliability and expertise of specialised personnel they need to complete their projects professionally. This way of allocating in-demand skills, only when and where projects demand them, ensures both the contractors and the hiring companies can complete projects to the highest standard.
