assistance or project orientated tasks. Our constant talent attraction allows us to provide an efficient and effective recruitment solution for temporary staff.

Similar processes are applied in the short-term & contract recruitment. With emphasis applied on
getting individuals that are also looking for short term projects, coupled with the right skill, it proves to yield effective results. Our project recruitment is designed to suit our clients’ flexibility demands.

On Site Vendors & Outsourcing

An on-sight vendor would be erected in cases of on-going recruitment and high staff levels. This can be created when a client wants total management of staff including HR & IR functions. The
convenience of having the onsite vendor would be that we will also assign a project manager to
oversee the whole recruitment process. The same process is adopted for outsourcing as the convenience of focusing on your core business is exercised. We want our clients to worry more on the day to day running of their business as
supposed to the minor issues of recruiting.
