Top Staffing related questions

What is a temporary employee?

Temporary employees are employed on a casual basis, usually for seasonal or short term work. They don’t get benefits such as the security of an ongoing contract, annual leave, sick leave, and other entitlements, but do usually receive a higher rate of pay as compensation.

How do I find the best temporary staff?

Airtasker has the best temporary staff for your business. With qualified, experienced staff available at short notice, you can view their reviews and quickly choose the best candidate.

Why recruit staff directly rather than via a staffing recruitment agency?

Recruitment agencies charge high fees and will also add a premium for short notice roles. Plus, they’ll only send through their selected candidates, often excluding qualified candidates. By recruiting directly, you can be hands-on with the process and keep control of costs and your staff choices.

What are the most common uses for short-term staff?

You can hire short-term staff for nearly any role, but some popular ones include wait staff, receptionists, marketing and promotions assistants, market stall and trade stand staff, retail sales staff, warehouse staff, and customer service staff.

What are some common reasons for hiring short-term staff?

Your work may be seasonal or you may just need some backup options for an especially busy day. Or maybe to cover regular team members when they get sick. Or perhaps you just need a few people to clean up after your guests at a busy dinner party or corporate event. If you’re short on time but you only need temporary help, short-term staffing services can make perfect sense.

How much does it cost to hire staff using Airtasker’s staffing services?

The cost of staff hire ranges from $25-$150 when you book their services through Airtasker. But the exact price will vary depending on how many hours you need help, the type of work, and whether you supply the tools and equipment needed.

What do staffing services include?

When recruiting a staff for a temporary role, you can expect them to come with suitable skills and experience for your task. While you will need to provide any specific training for what you need them to do, they should be ready to start work right away. Some popular roles for short-term staffing in Australia include:

Customer service staff

When someone calls in sick, or your business is busier than expected, hiring temporary staffing services can help keep things running smoothly. When you hire a temporary receptionist or customer service staff member, they’ll usually come with some experience doing similar work. But before they start work, you’ll still need to provide them with training on health and safety, as well as programs and procedures. Then you’ll need to show them around the workplace and introduce them to the team.

Wait staff

Recruit staff for an event. Whether you’re planning a corporate function, dinner party at home, or a self-catered wedding, your event will go a lot more smoothly when you have enough wait staff to help serve the food and clear up afterwards. When you hire wait staff from Airtasker, you can expect them to come with existing experience in hospitality and food service. You can even specify in your task that they hold the relevant RSA licenses so you’re legally covered for serving alcohol.


Need a last-minute barista, kitchen hand, cafe staff, or bartender, for your hospitality business? It’s easy to get overwhelmed with customers on a busy day or during an event, especially if one or two key staff members call in sick or need a day off work. Hire short-term staffing solutions in Australia so you can keep your business running smoothly and keep your customers well fed and happy. They’ll have the qualifications and experience to step right in and take control whether in the kitchen out back, or serving customers out front, leaving you free to get back to work.

Marketing staff recruit

Hiring short term marketing and promotional staff or event staff is a great way to get your business message across in a professional way. Recruit staff who can do things like approach customers with promotions, offers, tasters, and freebies, and encourage them to engage with your company. Or even do market research calls, phone surveys, and interact with your customers online. Look for staff who are friendly, approachable, and confident, and who sounds like a great fit for your brand.
