Freelancing Applicators/Sign Riggers
We are looking for some Freelancing Applicators/Sign Riggers
Approximately 60% of our total turnover involves sign rigging and vinyl application especially on vehicles. We recently revised our strategy around factory workers and permanent staff and retrenched half our staff and are now mainly making use of freelancers. Although we do make exceptions in certain cases, we pay per hour and not for work done, ranging between R40 and R90 per hour depending on the skills of the particular applicator/sign rigger. If we are satisfied with your service and behaviour, we will register you on our database and use more of your services in the future. However, we understand that as a freelancer you will not always be available, therefore we have approximately 10 freelancers on our database. Each of our freelancers are given a rating which is determined by the assigned Redblock staff member under whose supervision the tasks are carried out. This rating is adjusted on a monthly basis.
Should we require a freelancer for a specific project, we normally work from the top to the bottom of the list. The freelancers with the least skill or who are not able to adhere to the strict rules and regulations of the company, are normally contacted last and we make very little use of their services.
Please request our SOP Document via email. It is a PDF document with the company rules and regulations as well as operating procedures. Freelancers are expected to have studied these rules within three days of working for our company and to understand and implement them 100%.
The biggest offence that a freelancer can commit is to not arrive after he/she has agreed to a particular day and time, and the 2nd biggest offense is to be more than 30 minutes late without a very valid excuse.
Freelancers are paid in cash for the first day of his/her work and should we make use of your services in the future, an EFT payment will be made into your bank account on a Thursday afternoon of the particular week as we keep cash on the premises to a minimum.
Apart from adhering to the rules and operating procedures of the company, freelancers are expected to represent the company in the prescribed uniform which must be worn from the beginning of the shift and returned to us at the end of the shift. No freelancer is permitted to work in civil clothes notwithstanding whether they are visiting the site or working in our factory area.
Redblock Advertising & Media reserves the right to search any freelancer on departure from the premises.
