Frequently asked questions for Contract Recruiting
What does a contract recruiter do?
While some recruiters focus on placing candidates in permanent positions, others focus on recruiting contractors, interim hires and temporary placements. Contract recruiters typically have a pool of vetted talent ready for immediate start dates. This means open positions can be filled very quickly - if you contact a contract recruiter on a Monday, you’re likely to have an interim placement ready before Friday.
What is contract to hire?
A contract to hire employee — also known as work to hire or temp to hire — is a person who works with a company for a specific timeframe, often on one assignment or project. When that period ends, the employer may hire the employee full-time with benefits. The employer usually works with an organizational consulting firm or staffing agency to find the right contract to hire employee.
How does contract work work?
Recruiting specialists lead sourcing, selection, requirements testing, onboarding, HR/payroll, benefits, PTO, performance management and off-boarding so you stay focused on your business.
