Contractor Transcriptionists

Working from home, contractors bill the company for their output. Contractors must reside in Australia, have an ABN and provide their own equipment. There are two types of work available for contractors:

Running Courts – This work refers to court proceedings which are due the same day as they are heard. A team of 3 transcriptionists are assigned to each court, and proceedings are typed in 10 minute segments. A higher rate applies when assisting with running courts. Working on running courts requires availability which matches that of the court, generally 10am to 6pm AEST on weekdays (please note you do not need to be available every day the courts sit). 

Delayed Work – This work refers to orders that have a due date in the future. The turnarounds vary, depending on the urgency of the request.  Delayed work allows the work to be completed on any day and at any time of the day.
