  • Increase Your Recruiter Income

    If you only offer direct-hire placement services to your clients, contract staffing can increase your recruiter income in a number of ways.


What Is Contract Staffing in Recruitment?

Contract staffing in recruitment is when a client is in need of technical workers for a limited time frame. These workers are referred to as contingent workers, and the burden of being a W-2 Employer of Record is taken off of the client, and placed on you, the recruiter, or a third party back-office staffing solutions provider.

The contract staffing process allows your clients to keep their employee churn rate down, since contingent workers aren’t technically employees. However, many recruiters are hesitant to grow into becoming contract staffing recruiters in addition to making permanent placements because of the back-office administration required, and the new fee model. However, recruitment back-office solutions are a cost-effective way to reduce the administrative burden, and a thoughtful contract staffing agreement between you and the client can be just as profitable as a perm placement.

Contact Staffing isn’t just good for recruiters…
