About consultancy opportunities

What is a consultancy? 

A consultancy is a time-bound project, usually short term and not full time. Family for Every Child will consider the deliverables and responsibilities of the role to determine whether the opportunity is a consultancy or a job. 


Who can work as a consultant?

In many countries, consultants have to register as self-employed to be able to work as a consultant.  Family for Every Child may engage individuals as consultants (sole traders) or contract companies to provide services. 

Individuals engaged under a consultancy or individual contract will not be considered “staff members” and will not be entitled to benefits provided therein (such as leave entitlements). Their conditions of service will be governed by their agreement. Consultants and individual contractors are responsible for determining their tax liabilities and for the payment of any taxes and/or duties, in accordance with local or other applicable laws.
