Temp vs Perm

Hiring a temporary employee allows you to budget and ensure fixed costs for a project. You can also assess how this person fits in with your team and the work environment by taking stock of their skills and what expertise they bring to your business. 

It’s a little like try before you buy, you can make a permanent offer in the future but, hiring a temp worker lets you have a really good look at how that arrangement might work for you. Once a temp employee has worked with you and understands your organisation better it may be easier to attract them to work with you into the future.

Temp hirings sees you paying for the assistance you need, you manage the time and the hours and there is a general understanding that the work and time may be flexible and this suits many temps. Bear in mind not all temps will want to become permanent employees so you should discuss your longer term plans in advance with your recruitment consultant if this is a possibility in the future.


If you have a permanent role on offer, you can attract talent that is looking for a new employer with a consistent role and hours. Hiring a permanent employee requires you to add them to your payroll, pay a fee for recruiting them, factor in superannuation and other employee benefits.

This comes at a cost but it also allows you access to a wider talent pool of people that are looking for a role they can really become a part of and many prefer the consistency and security of a permanent role.

Many people won’t leave their current work unless it’s for a permanent, secure role so it really does give you the opportunity to attract the best talent with appropriate skill sets.
