Brazil – Temporary staffing grows +7%

10 January 2013

While many staffing markets in Europe suffered from falling client demand last year, recruitment firms in Brazil enjoyed healthy trading conditions. The number of temporary recruits was up +7% by the Christmas period when compared to the prior year.

New figures from recruitment trade bodies Asserttem/Sindeprestem showed that companies took on 157,000 temporary agency workers in the period. Around 23,500 of those (15%) later found permanent employment.

A large number of temporary positions, 20% in total, were filled by young people who gained their first work experience. Many of the workers also enjoyed a pay increase, the associations said.

Trade is the largest sector for temporary agency workers in Brazil, filling 75% of vacancies. 60% of the jobs in this industry were filled by workers aged between 18 and 39, and over half (53%) of them were men. One in four workers found a job in the industry sector, again with men (68%) outnumbering female workers.
