The term contract staffing (sometimes known as contract recruitment) refers to an employment arrangement, where an individual works for one company, but is actually an employee of a staffing company for a specified period of time, to complete a specific task, for a set pay rate.
Other common names include: contracting, contingent staffing, just-in-time staffing, outsourcing, flexible staffing, or temporary employment.
Unlike permanent hires, contract workers are usually needed on the job immediately. Additionally, because there is less risk in placing a contract worker than a permanent hire, your client can make a hiring decision fast.
Temporary/contract candidates are often more specialized but unavailable for direct placement
