Temporary & Contract Recruitment

Temporary and contract recruitment involves hiring employees for a limited period of time, usually for a specific project or to cover a temporary need within an organization. Temporary and contract employees can be hired directly by the company or through a staffing agency.

Here are the key differences between temporary and contract recruitment:

  1. Temporary Recruitment: Temporary recruitment involves hiring employees for a short-term period, usually for a few weeks or months, to cover a temporary need such as maternity leave, sick leave, or seasonal work. Temporary employees are typically paid an hourly wage and are not eligible for benefits such as health insurance or retirement plans.
  2. Contract Recruitment: Contract recruitment involves hiring employees for a specific project or duration, such as six months or a year. Contract employees are typically paid a salary and may be eligible for benefits, depending on the terms of the contract. Contract employees may work for a company directly or through a staffing agency.

The process of temporary and contract recruitment typically includes the following steps:

  1. Job analysis and description: The first step is to determine the job requirements, duties, and responsibilities for the position.
  2. Sourcing candidates: Recruitment agencies may use various methods to source candidates, including job boards, social media, referrals, and networking.
  3. Screening resumes: Resumes are reviewed to identify qualified candidates who meet the job requirements and qualifications.
  4. Conducting interviews: Interviews are conducted to assess the candidate’s skills, experience, and fit with the company culture.
  5. Offer and acceptance: If a suitable candidate is identified, an offer is extended, and the candidate accepts the job.

Temporary and contract recruitment can provide flexibility and cost savings for organizations, as they can hire employees for a specific need without committing to a long-term employment contract. However, it is important to carefully plan and manage temporary and contract employees to ensure they are properly onboarded and managed during their tenure.
