Can recruitment agencies help with temp staff?

The temp placement process

Recruitment agencies can help with finding temp staff. Many recruitment agencies specialise in giving temp staff solutions to firms that require short-term or seasonal employees. These temp positions can vary in length, from a few days to several months. The process usually has the following steps.

Understanding client needs

The recruitment agency will first discuss what the client requires and understand their specific needs for temp staff, including the skills, experience, and qualifications required.

Sourcing candidates

The agency will have a database of screened candidates and may also use other sourcing methods like advertising, networking, and online job sites to find candidates that fit the temp positions.

Screening & selection

The agency will conduct interviews and assessments to check the candidates' qualifications and experience and work out if they are right  for the temp roles. They may also perform background checks if necessary.


Once the right candidates are identified, the agency will present them to the client to assess. The client can then decide which candidate they want to hire for the temp position.

Contract & payroll management

The recruitment agency will usually handle the employment contract and manage the temp staff's payroll and other admin tasks related to their employment.

Performance monitoring

Throughout the temp staff's assignment, the agency may keep in touch with both the client and the employee to ensure that the temp is successful and to address any concerns that may arise.

Using a recruitment agency for temp staff has several benefits for businesses, including saving time and resources in the hiring process, having access to a larger pool of candidates, and making sure that the temp staff are qualified and experienced for the specific roles.

However, it's important for firms to choose a reputable and reliable recruitment agency to ensure they receive quality temp staff that meet their needs. As with any service provider, it's recommended to do some research, read reviews, and ask for recommendations before picking a recruitment agency.
