Brazil – Companies hire 32,000 temporary workers in May

28 May 2013

The Brazilian job market benefitted from this month’s Mother’s Day with 32,000 temporary agency workers having filled jobs in the period running up to the day, according to new research by the Brazilian recruitment trade bodies Asserttem/Sindeprestem.

Companies made use of extra staff to meet increased demand in the period. The number of temporary workers hired increased by +6.5% when compared to the previous year. Average earnings also increased by +5% from the prior year.

Women filled just over half (52%) of open positions. The organisations also said that 18% of jobs were filled by young people who gathered their first work experience in these jobs. Between Easter and Mother’s Day, a total of 57,000 temporary workers were hired.  

Most of the temporary jobs could be found in the clothing, perfumery and accessories sectors while the trade industry also offers the majority of jobs, including in areas such as customer service, sales promotion and telemarketing.

According to the confederation of private employment agencies, CIETT, Brazil employs the largest number of agency workers each year – a total of around 12.3 million – after the US.
