5 Reasons To Hire Construction Staff from a Labour Hire Agency

Have you thought about hiring labourers or tradies from a a labour hire agency in Sydney? There are many reasons why using an agency can be beneficial to a construction company and In this blog post we are going to explore the reasons why.

The construction Industry in NSW and Australia wide is huge, in fact it is the third largest industry in Australia for the number of people it employs. In 2019, over 1 million people were employed in construction (that’s 9% of all jobs) and these figures are expected to continue to rise over the next 3 years.

Sydney is currently experiencing an influx of infrastructure projects and there is vast demand for highly experienced and reliable staff across the country. However, despite the fact that construction is currently booming and work is plentiful , there is still a shortage of talented tradesman and younger apprentices choosing to work in the industry. This means hiring staff can be a challenge and when you’re under the pump in a highly competitive market, working around the clock to ensure your project does not fall behind, it can seem like an impossible task to look at hiring extra staff. Labour hire in Sydney takes away all this stress and provides you with fully qualified, experienced tradies and specialised labourers at a moment’s notice.

Save time and money by removing the recruitment process

Hiring staff is a huge job, the recruitment process from start to finish is time consuming and on boarding is expensive. Everything from advertising, interviewing, shortlisting, reference checking and screening involves a lengthy administration process and without the specific recruitment search technology in place you will find yourself shifting the focus away from the stuff that really matters!

Construction companies in Australia can increase their productivity by outsourcing recruitment and the selection process to an agency that are experts at this and who recruit every day for a living. Labour hire agencies in Sydney have access to an extensive database of construction staff, diverse professional networks and the latest and most efficient recruitment technology to ensure they are able to source exactly the right candidate for your open job positions. This is a great advantage to any construction company as it will significantly shorten the full cycle recruiting process. In other words, you can hire the best candidates much faster and at a price that you can afford.

Trial different skillsets

In today’s highly competitive, candidate-driven job market, finding and hiring the ideal candidate is hard. Sometimes you may even be unsure about which specific worker is required to make sure quality is of the highest standard and your project does not fall behind schedule. Labour hire allows you to bring in talent on an as-needed basis, allowing you to work with various skillsets and create the solution that works best to ensure you projects goals are met.

Having worked in various places and often different industries, labour hire staff possess a diverse skillset. As such they may possess a certain skill or attribute that you are lacking in your current workforce.


Labour hire is totally flexible, so you can engage new staff at peak times or at short notice to ensure you meet deadlines.  A major benefit of using Labour hire is that you can scale down your workforce during the quieter periods, once the project is complete or work starts to slow down. A flexible workforce reduces the risk of budget blowouts and increases business profits.

Pre-vetted, fully briefed and experienced candidates

Labour hire workers are reference checked, pre-vetted and highly experienced. They arrive on site ready to get to work, having been fully briefed on the role, safety protocols and equipped with appropriate PPE gear.

When you partner with a labour hire agency you can be very specific with the type of construction worker you require in terms of experience, background and skills. Most labour hire agencies will send you workers that have been assigned to other work placements and so will have an understanding as to their capabilities and whether or not they are reliable.
