I am working on a commission board system, where users can post commission requests (they are named "clients"), and other users can come and apply for a commission.

Once they are hired by the client, they become the ??? of the commission.

As a non-native english speaker I thought maybe something like "commissioner" but it means something entirely different from what i've seen.

  • employee perhaps but there must be a better word.

    contractor seems to be accurate indeed :)

    You perhaps should clarify what you mean by "commission".

The person or organisation selected for the commission becomes the chosen supplier of the commission.

Here are some examples from the Cambridge dictionary:

The extranet will link the company with its customers and suppliers.

We're suing our suppliers for failing to fulfil their contract.
