Contract Recruitment


Contracting continues to be one of the fastest growing employment models worldwide, enabling businesses to respond to rapidly changing market conditions in periods of growth or downsizing, to cover business-critical roles and engage staff for special "one off" projects at short notice.

Contractors are available at short notice (often immediately) and are ideally positioned to commit to fixed-term projects. They have the relevant skills, experience and industry knowledge to hit the ground running. Contractors add immediate value, as an interim solution, to ensure a business doesn't lose momentum during peak periods.

Our extensive experience and networks in this space ensure you have qualified contract candidates available to you on-demand, without the burden or complications associated with meeting permanent employee legislative obligations.

Our reputation stands on quality, reliability, and speed to market in contract recruitment solutions, to ensure your business does not miss a beat.

GRN provides contract solutions to our corporate and SME clients nationally, within all our disciplines.
