Labour-hire or recruitment agencies

Are you looking for work in construction, manufacturing or transport? If so, you may be wondering whether to approach a labour-hire or recruitment agency. So which one is Trade Assist?

Is Trade Assist a recruitment agency?

At Trade Assist, we connect companies with jobs to people like tradies such as labourers, carpenters, hammerhand and drivers. Along with forklift drivers, pickers and more to all kinds of industries. Similar to recruitment agencies. Like a matchmaker, it’s about supplying candidates to companies that need labour. Basically, we handle finding candidates with the right skills, qualifications and experience for the job.

To follow is a typical approach:

  • The client company provides us with a detailed job description.
  • We then search the database to identify candidates that are a good fit.
  • Identify a pool of suitable candidates.
  • Match the candidate with an employer.

Or a labour-hire agency?

Trade Assist also connects skilled labour will client companies on a labour-hire arrangement.

What does that mean? Well, the client company doesn’t employ the workers. The labour-hire agency does. So, for the client company, this means that it can use labour as and when required. The company doesn’t have to make a long-term commitment. Also, it doesn’t have to worry about payroll and training. Trade Assist even offers labour-contracting, where we can take care of the whole task for you.

So, if you’re looking for a job, where else but Trade Assist
