Great Resignation, Big Quit, Candidate and Skill Shortage… sounds familiar? Recruiting permanent staff has generally always been easy, but in times of tight candidate markets; It becomes really challenging.
You must wait for days, weeks, even months to find someone to complete your permanent role. You are hoping for that “perfect candidate” to fall from the skies somewhere.
Sometimes that waiting can be highly detrimental to your organisation. Business goes on; orders keep coming in; work needs to be done.
Instead of having the role vacant for a long period of time, or while you are waiting for that perfect candidate for your newly created role, why not consider a temp!
This will assist you with having some work completed while you wait and there is even a chance that the temp will be so good, you might want to take them on permanently!
At the very least you will be able to progress with some work while you are waiting.
Potentially the temp may not have all the skills you require; if they are higher level or very specific, but it is about changing your mindset and seeing what can be accomplished to help you out, while you wait for your perm employee.
Temps can hit the ground running, can start and finish on a role with minimal notice, and you only pay for the hours they work!
They can complete the role while you are waiting for that “perfect candidate”… or who knows, if this temp is the candidate you are waiting for!
