Labour hire and placement services

A labour hire agency is responsible for providing temporary staff to employers. Employees are paid by the labour hire agency for the work they conduct at the client's site. Labour hire companies refer to these clients as the host employer.

Some labour hire companies will specialise in a particular type of worker and some entities will supply various types of workers across various industries.

Labour hire arrangements are common in the manufacturing and construction industries but can also be found in a wide range of sectors.

In contrast, recruitment and placement agencies provide personnel search, selection, referral and placement services, to fill permanent work positions in other companies.
