managed services

The use of temporary or contingent workforces is on the rise as both employers and employees seek greater flexibility in their approach to work. However managing a dynamic, increasingly skilled and constantly changing contingent workforce effectively isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s extremely complicated, especially for large global organizations requiring a unified approach.

That’s where our innovative MSP services can help. We will simplify the way you hire and manage your contingent workforce by managing all your processes under one service.

You’ll get single, consolidated invoices and reports, as well as access to the same point of contact for all your temporary recruitment needs. We’ll also review your operations and processes to remove any unnecessary practices, so you can save time and money.

Our network of top recruitment suppliers and talented candidates, across different sectors, ensures you’ll get the best people for the job, quickly – no matter which role you’re recruiting for.



  • Less time and money spent on hiring contingent staff
  • Increased visibility on what you spend on contingent staff

Types of contingent staff

These are the most common categories covered by a managed service provider (MSP):
  • Temporary/contingent – non-permanent staff hired for a predefined amount of time
  • Temp-to-hire – non-permanent staff hired for a specific period at the end of which the employee may be eligible for a full-time position
  • Independent contractor – a person or persons providing services through an independent company
  • Statement of Work – a person or a company who is paid a fixed amount to complete specific objectives

Types of managed services
