At Michael Page, we work with job seekers of all sorts – including temporary workers. The Contracting Team is comprised of specialist consultants who have connections to some of the most prestigious companies in Australia, and can, therefore, offer rewarding opportunities for both short- and long-term contract roles in leading organisations.

Where to begin with your temporary job search

Your contractor job search begins with us. Simply let us know your skills, experience, availability, and preferences, and we’ll get started from there. We know how to make the transition as smooth as possible, and we understand that sometimes you’d prefer a position almost immediately.

Know that companies often want to find contractors at short notice, so our potential employers and roles are constantly changing and updating with new and exciting possibilities.

Contractor roles with Michael Page

Michael Page helps short-term workers find roles in a range of fields, from marketing and legal positions to retail and construction jobs and more. Our contacts can be found in industries across Australia, making it easier for you to find the perfect temporary position in your field.

Additionally, these roles vary in length. Some contractor jobs will last for just a few weeks, while others can last months, or even a year or more. Each position is different, and we will work with you to find the one best suited to your needs.

Why become a contractor?

The benefits of contracting are varied and vast, and the ‘best’ perks are usually subjective.

For some contractors, the freedom of choosing when to work and which projects to tackle is the main benefit. This independence often suits those who are looking to increase their autonomy and create a lifestyle change that allows for other hobbies or a healthier work-life balance.

For others, temporary or seasonal work offers a wide range of experience in which you can work on many different tasks, learn new things, network with new colleagues, and further improve existing skills. All of these perks can be hugely beneficial for future job prospects.

Or perhaps you are simply in between jobs or are not sure of your long-term situation, so it makes sense to seek out short-term employment.

Whatever the case may be, Michael Page can help to place you in the right position.

How long does it take to find a contractor job?

The length of your time as a short-term jobseeker will vary depending on your skills and experience, flexibility, and role preferences. If you’re in a hurry, keep in mind that organisations often look to fill positions at short-notice, and if we have all of your information ready to go, we can quickly go through the steps to place you in that role. This is how the Michael Page Contracting Team has been known to fill positions within as little as a day.
