Consultant Services

  • Charles Marcus consultants are permanent employees paying taxes in a payroll with full employment rights and benefits including pension, health scheme, holiday pay and gender pay.
  • Charles Marcus consultants work to achieve agreed tasks to agreed deadlines. They deliver results by applying their expertise without need of direction or control from the client. Their work is out of scope of OPWR.
  • Charles Marcus consultants are living and working away from their country of origin to broaden their experience. They came from every continent not only Australasia. But not everybody wants to leave home to find work. All independent spirits are welcome.
  • Many consultants were sponsored by Charles Marcus 20 years ago. Others are still with us after only 5 years. In between, life takes its normal course as in any other permanent job. Many moved on to serious success in their later careers.
  • Remote working has been a fact of life ever since you could catch a flight from Melbourne and be in a London office next day. Working from home is now a standard feature with the location of home being more a matter of flight availability than choice.
  • Most tax jurisdictions require you to pay tax where you actually do the work. Many countries do not register itinerant consultants unable to travel further. A pragmatic approach should be taken when visiting other countries.
