Brazil – Easter time brings 70,000 temp jobs

06 February 2013

In Brazil, the holiday seasons prove to be the busiest time for temporary agency workers and hiring is set to rise in the months running to Easter. According to new data, around 73,000 temporary jobs are expected to pop up by the end of March.

This is according to research by the Brazilian recruitment trade bodies Asserttem / Sindeprestem. After Christmas and Mother’s Day, Easter is the best time to find a temporary job in the country. Drivers, kitchen staff and salespeople will be especially high in demand.

The association estimates that Easter will bring job opportunities to young people in particular.  12,500 jobs are expected to be filled by first-time jobbers. Trade and industry will account for the majority of temporary jobs created in the run-up to Easter. Just over half (53%) of industrial vacancies are projected to be filled by men.  But women should snap up around 60% of vacancies in the commercial sector.

“One factor to note is that due to a labour shortage, many companies have reduced the requirements for hiring,” said Jismália de Oliveira Alves, head of Asserttem.
