Contract Placements

Working a contract role for the Specialized Group means finding the right position for you with one of our Client companies. From there we will sign a Contract between You, the Specialized Group and your future employer.

For you this means working on site at the company who will take on the responsibility for managing your day to day performance. The Specialized Group look after your salary payments, social insurance and other benefits

Temp to Permanent

A Temp-to-Perm agreement follows the same initial contractual arrangement as above where you will be an employee of the Specialized Group and work on site at our client.

However, with this agreement, you have a set term for the contract ? usually 6 months ? which is set at the start of the process.

Upon completion of the contract term, the company will then evaluate performance and decide on whether to hire you on a permanent basis. For permanent employment you will have a direct contract with the company as a standard employee.
