Did you know that many reputable companies are using the services of recruitment agencies to source temporary staff members? The top recruitment agencies will generally have temporary and permanent staff candidates on their books already. These candidates have already been assessed on their skill levels and have been properly screened. This will save the employer the hassle and time of advertising, sifting through tons of CV’s and conducting numerous interviews to find a suitable employee.
Candidates that are looking for temp work are often recruited into companies for a determined period of time. This is often to help fulfill certain temporary projects that require a specific set of skills. In other instances the employer may require someone to replace the position of an ex- employee or an employee that is on annual leave. They may even require an additional staff member for seasonal, busy periods. Temporary contracts can range from medium to long term contracts and will be drawn up based on the mutual agreement of the employer and temp staff member.
For candidates that are not searching for a permanent position but rather enjoy the flexibility of temporary employment, this will be an ideal way to earn an income when necessary. An established recruitment agency will have an extensive database of Companies that are searching for your temporary skills. Once the agency has your details and temp job requirements they will be able to put you in touch with companies that are requiring your flexibility and skill sets. This also saves you, the temporary candidate from scouting for an ideal temporary position.
Some Companies may want to assess the skills and job ethics of a temporary employee before offering them a permanent position. There are occasions when a temporary employee is offered a permanent position based on their excellent work performance. The temporary employee will be able to assess whether they would indeed fit into the company and be happy to stay on permanently.
Recruitment agencies that have operated for many years have built excellent relationships with businesses and will often be the first to hear about upcoming temporary and permanent positions within these companies. If you are the right fit for the position, the agencies consultants will contact you.
If you are searching for a temporary or even a permanent position, approach a Recruitment agency that is established and has branches located in major cities. This will help to ensure that you will be placed in a position relatively quickly.
