Contract HR Recruitment

Invariably, contract vacancies fall into two distinct types of requirement. Operational cover or those of a specialist project nature.

Operational Cover...

From time to time, our clients will need someone to work for them on a contract to cover a post that has been vacated by someone temporarily. This may be because a member of the team has gone on maternity leave, is on sick leave or perhaps they have been seconded to another role for a period of time to aid their development. Contract resource may also be used to cover a role that has been vacated by someone leaving the business altogether. A contractor can buy the client a bit of time until they find the right permanent replacement.

Specialist Projects...

A lot of businesses may not have a need to retain individuals with specialist HR expertise on a permanent basis. Using a contractor to come and deliver a specific piece of work can be very cost effective and it ensures that it will be done to a high standard. It also ensures that your team are not placed under additional strain.  

Fixed Term Contract or Interim Day Rate?

Whether you have a preference for either approach we can advise you on the benefits of each type of contractor.

FTC candidates are often sourced from a pool of candidates that are in between jobs. Candidates that work on an interim day rate basis tend to be career contractors and are perhaps more readily available but often a bit more expensive.

We are always happy to explore both sides of the market for you and will present the best people available.
