Find temporary work in Melbourne

Whatever the reason for seeking temporary work – whether you are a true Melburnian or a traveller passing through – WellsGray Recruitment can offer you short-term, contract or long term temporary assignments. We provide staffing solutions to a wide variety of industries, from healthcare, not for profit, through to professional services. Temporary work provides excellent opportunities to work for some iconic Australian and global brands, or can afford you a healthy work/life balance.

Temporary work is no longer the domain of transient and seasonal workers, it can be a career choice in its own right. Each assignment comes with new surroundings, either working in an office, or hybrid. Also, temporary work presents exciting opportunities to build upon your current skill set, or adding a number of people to your professional network and in some instances may lead to a permanent job.

Compared to permanent work, temporary work can offer a level of flexibility allowing you the time between contracts to use as your own. Whether taking a mini holiday, volunteering, spending time with friends and family, working on your own projects, or just simply having some downtime.‍

Our Temporary Job Search Solutions

Employers are increasing their use of temporary workers. In fact, many consider a temporary workforce to be a critical addition to their existing team.

However, it is important to note that whilst doing temporary work, you’re limited to a certain working period which is based on the client’s requirements, goals and length requiring your services, alternatively temporary assignments can also extend beyond their finish date.

One of the many advantages of partnering with WellsGray is we offer temporary employment with clients for full-time and part-time temporary arrangements. Maybe you would like to earn extra cash, you have a flexible working schedule, or require further days work, we have the potential to place you with one of our clients on a part-time or ad hoc basis.
