Temporary workers

Temporary workers

Macquarie University has a labour hire agreement with various agencies. Under this agreement, a labour hire agency sources and provides labour to perform certain work or services.

Temporary workers may be engaged in limited circumstances when:

  • there is a short-term need for labour (typically under 6 months)
  • there is an unanticipated urgent need for labour and you need to access a readily available pool of workers (typically as an interim solution)
  • a short-term project or task where you require specialised skills and expertise is not available in-house

See Sourcing applicants: using recruitment agencies for more information.
