Short-term solutions for your long-term advantage.
Temporary recruitment offers flexibility, allows for seasonal changes and manages risk associated with employee overheads. In an environment where driving efficiency and results has never been more important, it is critical that you have the right people working on even your short-term jobs.
The UKOO team invests the same time and resources to source candidates for a temporary position as we would for a permanent position. We also place all temporary staff on our payroll taking away the time-consuming administration often associated with short-term staffing solutions.
UKOO provides a targeted executive search and headhunting service aimed at attracting the best senior leadership and executive talent in Australia and internationally. We understand the importance of effective leadership and governance within any organisation, and can apply over 50 years of combined experience in recruiting you the right leader, senior manager or executive.
We draw on the latest digital search tools and strategies combined with boardroom experience and a strong academic foundation to ensure our leaders have the skills and experience needed to ensure success in your organisation.
