Summer job? Best time to start looking is now

Summer job? Best time to start looking is now

Short term labour hire is an ideal way for businesses across Australia to fill any gaps due to increased staff annual leave as well as increases in business activity due to the seasonal peaks such as Summer and Christmas.

According to Australian data from global jobs site Indeed, businesses in Australia and New Zealand begin their search for Christmas workers now.[1]

Once thought of as a way for young people to earn part-time summer pocket money, seasonal labour hire work can offer valuable experience and open the doors into more permanent or long-term positions.

The data showed that while retail accounts for 67% of Christmas job opportunities in Australia, there are also opportunities in sales, as well as customer service and sanitation.

The number of opportunities around the Christmas and summer season are highest in NSW, with ACT and Northern Territory offering the most Christmas job postings as a share of the population aged between 16 and 24. South Australia and Tasmania are the most difficult states for finding Christmas work. Opportunities in Western Australia are also few and far between as the state recovers from the economic weakness after the end of the mining boom.

APG offers total employment solutions across Australia. Whether you’re looking for labour hire, casual staff, temporary staff or full-time employees - APG can supply your business with effective staffing solutions.
