Temporary Recruitment

Laura – Talent Manager

Agency workers make up a significant proportion of our labour market, with 1.2 million workers placed into temporary/contract jobs every day.

With recruitment becoming increasingly difficult because of labour and skill shortages, employers may become even more reliant on agency workers to meet peaks in demand or access key skills in the short term.

As an employer, you too can benefit from the flexibility of hiring temporary candidates. You may find yourself short staffed at a moment’s notice or have a particularly busy period that needs staffing short term.

The clear advantage with temporary staff is the level of control you have as an employer. You’re able to expand and contract your team quickly without the need to source individuals, agree contracts or add them to your payroll
