When a client has a long-term need, direct hire is ideal. Direct hire positions are permanent, usually full-time positions with benefits. A staffing agency is involved during the recruitment and hiring process, but after an offer is accepted, the candidate goes directly on the client’s payroll.
The process for direct hire can be a little slower because clients want to take their time when making a long-term decision. It is ideal for candidates who are not as comfortable taking the risk of working contract. Direct hire employees are eligible for company benefits such as health, retirement, and PTO, and have the security of a long-term, permanent position.
