Three Contractor Options

The Modern Online Recruiting Company

Contracting jobs can require specialised, high-level skill sets, as well as discretion, the ability to build rapport quickly in teams, and many other soft and hard skills. When it comes time to find individuals who fit the brief, time-poor managers and decision-makers can find it difficult to gather the necessary resources to get the perfect person for the job.

Let us help you – contracting recruitment is one of our specialties. Whether you’re looking for IT, engineering or health contractors (or something else entirely), we are experienced in finding and screening candidates. That’s not all, though; if you hire people through contracts regularly, you know that working through a third party is always preferable. If you choose to partner with SmartWorker, you also get a recruitment agency experienced at managing ongoing relationships between companies and contractors.
