The duty of a recruitment company is to bridge the gap between job seekers and employers, which enables the job seekers to be permanently fixed into specific jobs in various companies that needed to recruit staff. This service makes it a seamless process for employers to find their desired workforce.

In addition to finding suitable job seekers for desiring companies, recruitment companies also face a situation in finding contractors as well. Contractors are hired based on a temporary basis and this leaves the employer with uncertainty as to the contracted staff perhaps leaves after the option of six month’s duration has expired.

The question is why is there the need for establishments to continue running contractors in their firms? Systems of doing works have changed with time. Today’s attention has been drawn to what is referred to as contingent workforce and gig economy, which is to say that there is a huge number of workers who are placed on a non-permanent basis in the workforce. This gives employers the opportunity to either increase or decrease their staff strength or even take up a professional for a fixed period. They now find it a seamless process to go by the dictates of their business.

In addition, contingent workforce activities are spreading wide and overtaking traditional occupations of both the public and private sectors alike. There is enough proof that gig platforms are substituting the most traditional service.

Employers now enjoy the flexibility given to them in finding talent and skills suitable for a given project. The business process had continued to alter from time to time; this flexibility becomes a necessary tool for achieving business targets within an era. Employers now feel reassured of business continuity during the time their permanent staffs take their leave, and contractors temporarily assume responsibility for handling official tasks.

The availability of job seekers on their command to take up both short-term and long-term contracts would put the recruiter on an advantage, as it would boost the overall value of his company. In several instances, recruitment companies assume the responsibility of the contract staff – giving you the freehand to meeting your payroll commitments. One major factor in choosing who would be your recruitment company is the ability of such a company to fund payroll by themselves for your end clients.

4 Services Provided By Recruitment Agencies:

  • To fund the contractor’s payroll and reduction of cash flow issues – giving room for your business expansion.
  • They handle invoicing, boarding and payroll.
  • Ensuring that your clients are paid as at when due.
  • They ensure that they provide financial ease for both you and your clients.


Organizations have to incorporate and accept the advantages of the gig economy and contingent workforce. Business outfits need to meet up with changing trends and the challenge of recruiting contractors in order to be successful.
