Temporary & Contract Services

Need temporary staff for your project?  Get in touch with us today


One of the most effective staffing strategies in construction to help control costs, manage risk, cope with peaks in workload and develop a pipeline of tried-and-tested talent, is the use of temporary or on-hire contractors.

With a strong history of over 30 years in the construction industry, we’ve built a solid database of technical white-collar professionals and are able to provide you with quality personnel within a short time frame.


Reasons to consider on-hire contractors for your project may include:


  1. Flexibility around demand: On-hiring contractors is an effective strategy to match the workflow of your business. If work picks up you can offer staff more hours and longer-term contracts or hire additional workers. If work decreases, you can decrease hours, contractor numbers or reduce the length of contracts.
  2. Pay for the hours worked: Whilst hourly rates are typically higher than permanent rates to offset leave entitlements, businesses pay only for the time worked.
  3. Engage temp staff permanently: As economic conditions improve (or contractors prove their contribution is critical to the long-term needs of the business), individuals can be engaged as permanent employees of the business. During times of economic recovery, the ability to quickly engage well-trained, proven temps as staff members can be key to winning market share and expanding services or diversifying.


Partner with an informed recruiter

Australia’s workplace laws in relation to engaging on-hire employees have become more complex over the last few years. If you decide that employing temporary staff is a strategy you’d like to pursue, partnering with Stratacon Professional Recruitment ensures you’re working with a licensed Labour Hire organisation, and we’re also equipped to guide you on the Fair Work Act Amendment to offer casual conversion.
