According to the Australian Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate was 9.4% in December 2010. This isn't a promising statistic if you're looking for a job – but if you're a business owner, it's a different story.
This is an employer market and you have all the cards when it comes to hiring. There is a huge potential workforce out there and some of that workforce is looking for you right now. You can find more information about recruiting employees via https://businesssolutionshub.com.au/employment.
If you're struggling to get things done but aren't sure if your business has grown to the point where you want to hire someone on a full-time basis, a temp agency may be the perfect solution.

Of course, using a temp agency will save you the time you spend doing work that other people can do, but you'll also save time in other areas: recruitment (the agency will only send you qualified people; all you have to choose from), payroll (You pay the agent; the agent pays the worker) and training if you offer temporary workers for permanent employment at your company.
Another advantage: When it comes time to increase your permanent offer, you already have a solid idea of their job skills (as opposed to their interviewing skills only if you are directly interviewing someone for the position).
However, it should be borne in mind that temporary employment agencies will demand a salary reduction. Depending on your location, industry, and agency policies, these deductions can vary widely. This is very fair and reasonable, but you should consider it when making a decision.
