Hey Lodewijk, I'm not acutely aware of the details for this specific position but in the interest of "probably" answering the question quickly in the US the term benefits in that context is generally used to specifically talk about health care, retirement, life insurance or other "fringe" benefits that the company would pay for with a full time (or sometimes longer term contractor) position. A position like this would generally be paid but not receive those benefits. Do you know of a better way to say when that applies? I think it's good to make sure people aren't taken unaware by that but if it's confusing I'm sure HR could look at changing job descriptions to make it clearer.
