Assurance of adequate workload and predictable income
Our contractual opportunities guarantee you a specific amount of work and a predictable income. And many of our arrangements do not set a cap on the maximum amount of work you can take on per month. So the more you do, the more you will earn!
Dedicated point of contact to address your needs
As a contractor, you retain your independence while still staying in touch with people at CACTUS via messenger and a CACTUS email account. You will also have a dedicated point of contact who will address your queries and concerns.
Payment on time, every time
We take our payment cycle deadlines very seriously. Our automated workflow management system tracks your assignments and the corresponding fees to ensure zero errors and delays in your payment. And if there are any discrepancies, we'll sort them out on priority.
Our secure and user-friendly interface is our pride. It allows you to preview and accept assignments, monitor important data, and even indicate when you will be unavailable. We regularly upgrade and improve this system to provide you with a world-class interface.
Opportunities to collaborate
Our contractors are extremely talented and diverse. When new opportunities arise, we often look for ways to involve some of you. In the recent past, our contractors have doubled up as trainers, content creators, and beta-tested our new app!
You can gain access to articles and tips shared by your fellow contractors. You can share your own experiences and learn from those who've trodden this path before.

Hear from some of our contractors
I had always wanted a job that was engaging and flexible, and working at CACTUS has made that possible. A flexible schedule without the hassle of a daily commute enables me to focus on and enjoy my work even more and gives me time for personal growth. Even while working from home, I feel part of a team because of the day-to-day interaction with the people at CACTUS, who are very helpful and understanding. This is the best part of the job, and I can honestly say that I like and look forward to my work!
After a 35-year academic career, I was looking for something that was flexible and avoided the daily 160-km round trip to and from work, and CACTUS provided such an opportunity. Working from the comfort of my home office provides me with the flexibility that I was looking for while allowing me to remain engaged with academic research as an editor. I find the editing process both satisfying and rewarding. The friendly and encouraging CACTUS work environment allows me to give some of my accumulated experience back to the academic community in a way that I had not previously considered.
CACTUS provides an excellent opportunity for self-motivated individuals who love to learn, thrive with challenge, and desire to make an impact. Everyone I've worked with at CACTUS has been very kind and professional. I began my editing career with CACTUS after several years in the industry as a way to get my foot in the door in scientific communications. CACTUS has helped me build and refine my skill and has been instrumental in transforming my career.
I am really happy that I am able to work with CACTUS. It provides me with steady work that I can do from home or wherever I happen to be. The freedom from the daily commute and the ability to work from my home enable me to get much more work done than I would otherwise. The best part is that I get to work with great people who are friendly, supportive, helpful, and understanding. CACTUS is the best organization I have ever worked with.
