FAQ's

Permanent recruitment serves as an excellent solution for businesses seeking to meet long-term resource requirements. Within this model, organisations engage potential employees under contracts without predefined end dates. This traditional employment approach involves direct hiring by the company or a preferred third-party agency, ensuring roles remain open-ended.

Permanent recruitment offers valuable advantages for businesses looking to fill gaps or scale their teams for long-term growth. This solution ensures consistency in knowledge, serving as a stable resource for teams and organizations. Moreover, it fosters talent investment, nurtures company culture, retains expertise, provides cost-efficiency, and enhances overall productivity.

The primary differences between contract and permanent recruitment revolves around the duration or nature of employment. Contract recruitment provides flexibility for short-term projects or specific tasks requiring temporary assistance, allowing for rapid adaptation. Permanent recruitment focuses on establishing a stable resource for long-term strategic goals within the organization.
