So, you’re thinking about partnering with a labour hire company to provide contract workers to round out your busy team but aren’t quite sure how we can help?
We get it. Labour hire can be a confusing term, so let us help you wrap your head around it.
What is meant by Labour Hire?
Labour hire is often referred to as recruitment or, sometimes, placement solutions. Whatever it is called, it’s a service – or agency – that centres on finding workers and placing them in companies that need them, ensuring the person is a good cultural and strategic fit for the organisation. A labour hire agency can help businesses if they are looking for a single employee, a handful of contract workers, or an entire workforce.
Labour hire is not limited to sourcing workers. If need be, services can extend to managing these workers.
It also is not limited to sourcing short term workers. We can assist with finding direct employees for your company if that’s what you need.
Labour hire: A tailored approach
Labour hire can be a confusing term due to it not being a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
At RecruitWest, we offer a variety of labour hire workforce solutions because there are many ways we can assist companies; it all depends on what your organisation needs. Our labour hire solutions are customised to help ensure your staffing levels are always right for your business. We understand that demand for workers can rise and fall throughout the year.
There are many upsides of partnering with a labour hire agency which prioritises collaboration, communication and commitment to its clients.
Some of RecruitWest’s labour hire solutions include:
Contract Labour Hire Workforce
Finding casual employees (or temporary staff) is a key service RecruitWest provides. Prequalified skilled casual or contract workers offer flexibility to round out your workforce, whether you need someone for a day, week or month. This contract hire solution is ideal for covering workers on sick leave or holiday leave. It can also assist companies, such as construction companies, needing more contract workers for short or long-term projects (project staff).
On-site Labour Hire Management
RecruitWest can deliver an entire casual workforce, such as is needed to cover one-off events, seasonal work or project staff. In these instances, many clients prefer us to manage the casual workforce on-site, harnessing our efficient systems and expertise to maximise productivity, minimise downtime risk and reduce disruption to permanent employees.
Contract Labour Hire to Permanent Recruitment
Working with a labour hire agency to source a contract worker for your company can be an excellent way of finding the perfect permanent employee. Known as ‘Temporary to Permanent’ transition, this allows organisations to assess if a person is the right ‘fit’.
RecruitWest can respond to contract worker requests within 24 hours, thanks to our deep database of prequalified candidates.
If your business needs a permanent employee with a specialised skillset who is also aligned with your culture, values and existing workforce, the RecruitWest team can recruit this new staff member for you, and we work across all sectors.
Recruitment Process Outsourcing (Part or Whole)
Partnering with a labour hire agency ongoingly is akin to your company having its own internal expert HR department. When it comes to Recruitment Process Outsourcing – or RPO – it’s like having your own HR department just long enough to help you find a permanent employee. Your business gets access to our labour hire experts and our database of professional skilled workers and we use our time and resources to find the ideal person for the job you need filled.
We can handle the whole task – from job ads to candidate checks, interviews and more – or select tasks only. Either way, this allows your team members to focus on what they do best.
RecruitWest: Industry specialists
Our focus at RecruitWest is finding great people and placing them in great organisations.
We exist to make running your company simpler and have deep experience in sourcing blue-collar and white-collar workers across a range of diverse sectors.
Our work regularly centres around 3 key areas:
Mining Labour Hire
RecruitWest specialises in providing trained contract workers to WA’s vital mining industry and are experienced in finding the right staff for the unique sector.
We play an integral role in sourcing a diverse range of quality, security-cleared FIFO and permanent workers to keep WA’s mining companies, which are dealing with a chronic shortage of skilled staff, moving.
According to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, the mining industry delivered a record 117,970 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs in the 2021-22 financial year, making it an exceptional sector for job security
Construction Labour Hire
At RecruitWest, we know the challenges facing Australia’s construction industry – which employs 10% of the nation’s workers – and understand they’re long-term, as well as short-term.
In WA, the construction sector is already dealing with a skilled labourer shortage, and the Civil Contractor Federation WApredicts a further 3,900 workers are required to successfully deliver important civil construction projects.
This makes labour hire more crucial than ever for construction companies desperate for qualified construction staff (permanent and subcontractors) to help them complete urgent work in Perth and regional WA.
RecruitWest’s labour hire and recruitment services make finding the ideal site-ready civil and housing construction contract workers easy.
Logistics Labour Hire
Australia’s growing logistics industry is also being negatively impacted by the tight labour market.
RecruitWest is supporting leading WA logistics companies to find contract workers to fill staffing gaps and keep freight moving.
The Australian Logistics Council says there is an unsustainable deficit of skilled labour and training in the freight and logistics supply chain, including in warehousing, stevedoring and driving, meaning contract workers are essential in this space.
Labour hire fees
RecruitWest calculates all costs for our clients and charges a fixed rate fee for our professional services. This approach makes it easier for businesses to budget.
We are committed to providing competitive and compliant pay rates for contract workers and we ensure compliance across all aspects of our operations, making life easier for companies we partner with.
