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
