Transcription JOBS: Who can be a Diva?

Transcription Jobs Australia Work from home.

Love to work from home with flexible hours? Love a short commute? Like to wear a dressing gown at work? Then a transcription job as an independent contractor with Transcript Divas could be for you!

What sort of people are we looking for? We have all sorts of Divas working for us, but what they share is the ability to deliver on time. They like to get things right, and they realise that over-delivering to our clients secures the Diva-dom for everyone.

They see themselves as a “can-do”, responsible person. They see themselves, in essence, as an independent small business owner and they take pride in the work they deliver to their clients.

How much CAN YOU MAKE DOING Transcription JOBS? – honest INFO.

Transcript Divas are not about taking advantage of people or trying to maximise our profit at the expense of our team.  Honest work. Deserves honest pay. We aim to beat the average hourly rate for transcriptionists working in Australia, plus with us you get the benefits of being your own boss, a small business owner. Set your own times, work from wherever you want in Australia.

We pay our team based on how many minutes of the recording they transcribe. The rates to transcribe a minute of recording vary based on a range of factors. Basically, the longer we think it will take to transcribe a recording, the higher the rates we offer to type. For example, having more than two speakers in a recording takes longer to transcribe, so the rate for that would be more. So, how much do you pay?

In MARCH 2021, and based on the Living Wage in Australia the average rate was $2.58/minute. The maximum was $3.64/minute of recording transcribed and was a same day and might of had more than two speakers, or had some other difficult aspect to it. The minimum rate we paid was $2.02/minute of recording to be transcribed. This would have been a straight forward, single speaker or basic interview with a very long turnaround.


We engage our contractors under the Australian Government Fair Work framework. Independent contractors have different benefits, rights and obligations to employees. This is because contractors provide services to another person or business, as opposed to being employed by that person or business. This means it’s important to understand the difference between the two. You will need an ABN and have clients beyond the work you will do for us, as well as fulfill the standard government contractor responsibilities.
