Contract Staffing Services

NES Fircroft’s contract recruitment service enables an agile workforce and supports your project plan

Recruiting engineering and technical talent has never been more competitive, but companies in need of a temporary workforce should not need to compromise on the quality of their hire for speed. 

With our service, there's no need to compromise

We understand that when it comes to hiring contractors, businesses need the right skills for the right price - often at incredibly short notice – and that contractors must arrive on site fully compliant and ready to work. We also understand that your project’s location might not be in an easily commutable place and that you may not have an office nearby to co-ordinate the hiring drive. We’re here to help overcome these challenges.
