Across multiple industries in Australia and worldwide, the need for skilled and talented staff will continue to be relevant so long as the planet spins. It’s no secret that companies seek quality employees who will deliver: individuals who will be team players and hard workers who can meet the specific needs of that organisation.

For the active business, a variety of employment situations are often required. Such entities may not solely need traditional, full time, long term staff. Fortunately, permanent recruitment is hardly the only option when it comes to landing exceptional employees. If you’ve never considered using labour hire for your business, perhaps today’s the day to give it a closer look. Let’s start by exploring the most common query: how does labour hire work?

Labour Hire Basics

Seasons change, business dips and peaks, and projects come and go. In many fields, but particularly those in construction, engineering, and other manually-focused industries, there is a dramatic flux in staffing needs throughout the year. Labour hire is a process of hiring skilled workers for a temporary period, generally via a recruitment agency. These workers are not employees of your business, but of the agency that sources them. This makes the entire process more straightforward for you and expedites the amount of time needed to locate the highly qualified labourers you seek. A wide range of projects can benefit from labour hire, including high season activity.

The Skills You Need, When You Need Them

The overarching benefit of labour hire is flexibility. Major projects may have many phases during which only specific skills and abilities are needed. An office renovation, for instance, may need electricians, plumbers, carpenters, painters, and other roles, but typically not at the same time. You don’t need to hire a concrete pourer for the entire project duration if their expertise is needed only for a few days or weeks. Labour hire gives you the chance to utilise expert staff for the precise period in which their skills are required, and with flexibility on your end to alter or extend the schedule as needed.

Outstanding, Vetted Workers Ready to Start

Sourcing and hiring the very best employees can take a significant amount of time when done on your own. Choosing labour hire through a reputable recruitment agency can literally cut that time in half.
