What is Labour Hire?

Under a labour hire arrangement, the host employer (you!) enlists the services of an employment agency (us!) to find suitable staff to fill a new or vacant role in your organisation. You cover our charges and we’ll cover all the costs involved with recruiting, paying and retaining your labour hire employees.

How Does it Work?

Since being founded in 2010, we’ve built up an enormous database of talent comprised of skilled and experienced workers from across the Brisbane region. We draw from this pool of talent to provide you with the best labour hire staff who are best suited to the needs of your company.


As the host employer, you’re responsible for paying your labour hire staff an hourly rate that takes many elements into consideration, such as:

  • Industrial agreements
  • Compensation levies
  • Comparable pay rates
  • Modern awards
  • Statutory awards

Other factors that may apply. All labour hire jobs must involve a minimum of four-hour shifts per day, according to legal requirements set out by Fair Work Australia.
