Labour Hire – The Screening Process Explained

Whenever you apply for a job, the business will always go through a screening process to clarify your background and ensure your suitability for the role. As a labour hire agency, we go through a similar process. Every candidate put forward by us must go through a pre-screening process, and this helps to ensure both your and our client’s satisfaction.

In this blog post, you will discover everything you need to know about the labour hire screening process and what we look for.

Screening Checklist

  1. Expectations

We first need to clarify client expectations. Our aim is to supply the right candidates for the job first time around, giving candidates the best possible chance at succeeding within the role and delighting the client. We don’t want you to be dissatisfied, and nor do we want to let our client down.

Before sourcing candidates, we will request details from our client such as expected working hours, role requirements, conditions, length of contract, career growth opportunities and more.

  1. Skills and Experience

Jobs range in complexity, and every business will have unique requests when it comes to skills and experience. The client provides us with the specific skills they are looking for, and candidates will normally need to also have some work history in a similar role.

As a labour hire agency, we aim to ensure the best match between our client’s requirements and the skills and experience of all candidates within our database. It is important that you provide us with a current CV containing your education history and qualifications, along with specific skills and work experience. Your documents will be verified by one of our recruiters, and we’ll also conduct a reference check. This process helps us to quickly and easily match you with the most appropriate roles, and ensures that you will be capable of performing the tasks required of you.

  1. Personality

As a labour hire agency, we work with some of Australia’s biggest contractors and have a good understanding of the work culture at each organisation. We want every candidate to have a positive experience, and during the screening and interview process we will try to work out your strengths, weaknesses and personality. In getting to know you as an individual, we will be able to liaise with our clients and determine your ability to fit into their company culture.

  1. Qualifications and Criminal Record

A check will be conducted to confirm your education qualifications and any past criminal records. This is of particular importance if the role you are applying for involves the dissemination of sensitive information.


As you can see, thorough checks of a candidate’s background are an important part of the recruitment process. In carrying out these checks, we are able to provide clients with the reassurance that they are receiving quality staff who are capable of meeting the requirements of a role. Screening can be a time-consuming task, but it’s a part of our everyday at Brix Projects.

If your business is currently seeking qualified staff, give us a call today. Simply let us know your requirements, and we’ll source a pre-screened candidate from our large database so that you can get on with the job without any further delay. Brix Projects are a leading Sydney labour hire agency, and we look forward to partnering with you.
