Hiring the right employee types

Employee, contractor or intern? Our visual guide gives an overview of employee types so you can choose the right kind of help for your business — and then test yourself on employee types with our quiz.

Deciding you’re going to get help is one thing, but getting the best type for you is another. Before you rush out to hire someone, you first need to consider things like:

  • how much work actually needs doing
  • when work needs to be done by
  • the difference between an employee and a contractor
  • what level of responsibility you’re willing to take on
  • what the rules are around different employee types.

Use our visual guide to:

  • gain an overview of the different types of help available
  • decide what kind of help might suit you best.

You can also use it to swot up for the quiz on this page.

 When you're done, follow the links in the answers for more details.
