Working with an agency
If you have not worked with an agency before, it is important that you understand how a recruitment agency works for you.

Our Business Clients

We provide our business clients with permanent, contract and temporary recruitment solutions – matching skills, experience and team fit. We also assist with advice on market information and consulting services.
  • Permanent and contract recruitment. We provide shortlists of candidates to our clients. The client makes the final appointment decision. We charge the client a percentage of the starting salary.
  • Temping. Assignments range from 4 hours to months or even years. These are phoned in by our business clients at any time of the day or night. We invoice clients for the hours you work.

    We maintain a pool of temps who have been interviewed, skills tested, reference and security checked, and ready to go. When you temp through us, we are your employer and based on your hours worked, we pay you directly.
Our Candidates

Our service to candidates is totally free. When you register to look for work, you will be interviewed, skills assessed, and reference and security checked. We are also happy to provide you with advice on the recruitment market and process.
