Permanent recruitment FAQs
Permanent recruitment focuses on supporting your company in the long term. It involves hiring qualified people with the skills, knowledge and experience that will positively impact company success over time.
Effective permanent recruitment services allows both the company and its employees to grow, develop and build on the shared ambitions and values of the organisation.
The difference between permanent recruitment and contract recruitment often comes down to the contract style, depending on if you’re hiring for full-time roles or limited time roles.
Permanent recruitment offers employees a full-time contract, while contract workers have a limited time contract, usually based on the project size or its duration. Permanent employees can usually enjoy company benefits contract workers aren’t entitled to, such as healthcare, paid leave and sick leave.
Recruiting for a permanent role is where there is no defined employment end date for the employee, and they receive your benefits package. A temporary position, on the other hand, is one that has a defined duration of employment with a contract end date. Permanent employees are viewed as a long-term investment in your business and can help you grow a strong culture, whereas hiring temporary workers provides more flexibility and involves lower costs.
Once you understand your hiring needs, the easier it will be to know which type of employee you need.
Permanent recruitment solutions are a quick and easy way for you to hire talented permanent staff suited to your organisation and ambition.
