Employment agencies

A recruitment agency or employment agency, matches individual employer needs with the agency's registered workers, looking at an individual's skills, experience, qualifications and interests. 

The worker may be recruited by the agency into a permanent full- or part-time, or fixed term, role, on behalf of the employer, or be employed by the agency on a temporary, ongoing basis. This method is often used by large firms who want to see how well an individual worker performs before recruiting them directly, often resulting in a substantial pay rise, better terms and conditions, and a permanent contract.
