Brazil – Temporary Christmas rush begins

11 October 2013

With the end of the year approached and trade levels increasing there has been increasing demand for labour, particularly within production industries that are looking for more staff to meet this increased demand, reports diariodosudoeste.com.br.

According to the President of the Union of Employers of Retail Pato Branco (Sindicomercio) Ulysses Piva, there is normally a +5% increase in jobs at this time of year, compared with other months. Demand, according to Mr Piva, is more common in supermarkets, restaurants and shops, especially clothing shops.  

Mr Piva also explained that temporary work is an excellent opportunity for those who are outside the labour market, as well as young people seeking their first job. “The person can be employed effectively, meeting the needs of the employers and enjoying the benefits of work.”

“Temporary work is in accordance with the rules of the Consolidation of Labour Laws (CLT), where the contract made for 30 days and can be renewed up to 90 days,” he added.

Mr Piva added that it is important for people seeking work to think about agency work and look for companies that specialise in recruitment. “People directly submit their resumes to companies for work. It is work looking at the temporary job market because it means that the workers will ensure they end the year with dignity.” 

Temporary recruitment is still in the early stages across Latin America. CLETT&A (the Latin Confederation of Private employment Agencies) and CIETT (the International confederation of Private Employment Services) recently met in Buenos Aires to promote private employment agencies across the region. In attendance were representatives of most Latin American countries.
