How does this calculator work?

i.e. (Business Costs + Personal costs + Profit you want to make) / number of hours that you will work = hourly rate that you should charge

    How do you calculate without knowing my age and therefore the number of years I will be working?

      Hi Francis,

      Thanks for your question.

      Our calculator is designed to give you a general indication of what your hourly rate should be.

      If you would like to discuss your personal situation, you may want to speak to a recruitment specialist.

    I’ve recently finished a 12 month – month by month contract of lead generation – sales/marketing account development – account management increasing the sales by 20% during this period ( on a part-time basis 3 days p/w ). My current hourly rates have been $28. p/h.
    The client has since hired a full time employee to take over from me. They have requested I spend 4 full days doing a handover which includes putting together the following;

    Documents outlining the processes I’ve created
    Training of systems to identify trends of accounts usage of the product
    My sales/marketing material – via email & phone
    Meet & greet of existing accounts in the field

    Q – to impart my knowledge, info and expertise prior to my departure, what is a reasonable fee to charge on an hourly rate, as I feel this warrants a higher rate than $28.00 p/h ?

    Greatly appreciate anyone/everyone’s feedback on this – please.
