  • What do Blue Collar recruitment agencies do? Blue Collar recruitment agencies provide temporary labour hire services to businesses operating in a wide range of industries. We source high quality skilled and unskilled workers who are well positioned to take on ongoing roles on behalf of our clients.
  • What do Blue Collar Labour Hire agencies screen for?
  • Blue Collar People Labour Hire firms screen candidates on behalf of their clients to ensure that both the client and worker get exactly, or as close as possible, to what they are looking for. The things that the labour hire firm screen for include the workers’ skills and experience, compatability, criminal records, the workers ability to fit into the clients company culture and the expectations of the candidate.
  • Client or Candidate – who do we work for? 

As a Blue Collar People labour hire company we represent the interests of both the clients and the candidates – a matchmaker of sorts. We work for the client seeking temp workers and the candidate in search of employment to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship between both parties. Ultimately the client business pays us so they are our customer.

How cost effective is a labour hire agency in Perth?

Using Labour Hire services for your staffing needs is very cost effective. There is less red tape and paperwork involved for you when using a labour hire company – as we do all that for you- which makes the hiring process quick, efficient and less costly; reduced HR expenses for clients, as the labour hire company takes care of the bulk of the work; greater workforce flexibility enabling businesses to adjust the number of workers they need to suit their workloads; and standard pricing that includes taxes and related insurances and superannuation,making budgetary planning quite easy.

Are our clients under contract when they use Blue Collar People for their labour hire requirements?

There is a simple Trading Account Agreement that needs to be filled in as a once off thing, but No, you are not under contract with us. You simply hire the workers from us that you need, for as little as 4 hours to however long you require them for.

Can your Labour Hire Services be booked on line?

You can enquire on line but we will however need to call you back for additional information required to ensure we get the right worker and workers for your business.

How active are you in finding the right worker or right workers for my business?

We are actively involved in employee sourcing, employing our wealth of experience to ensure that you get a worker with the right skills and experience that you need, as well as a great attitude and work ethic.

What type of workers does Blue Collar People focus on?

Prior to the COVID pandemic – when there was not a severe shortage of workers in Western Australia – we used to focus on carpenters, labourers, storespeople, process workers, electricians, welders, boilermakers, diesel fitters, mechanical fitters, plumbers, chefs, grano workers, drivers, plant operators, forklift drivers and many more. However since businesses have had, all over Western Australia and Australia, the severe  shortage of workers that has gone on for the last 2 years – we have now been focusing on all of the above but excluding the tradespeople and plant operators (as they are too difficult to get a hold of)

How do you charge for your labour hire services?

Our rates are hourly and are balanced to ensure that they are as low as possible but not too low as to affect the quality of workers we provide to our clients.

Are you in compliance with the law?

We are fully compliant with the law. We comply with all national employment standards and the full range of Occupational Health and Safety laws and legislation. We also have additional policies to promote a healthy and safe workplace.

What’s your recourse if a worker quits?

Our recruitment process is quite stringent, so this rarely happens. We also ensure to only place workers who want to work in the role and the industry of the job that we want to fill. We never force anyone to take on a job they dont want and all placements are voluntary which helps minimise the cases of employees quitting their jobs. In the rare eventuality of this happening, Blue Collar People will provide a replacement to the client with no fuss.

Have you placed workers for similar job roles?

Of course! We have employed in every single occupation that we have listed earlier on. This is one of our advantages over our competitors as we have been working in the industry, here in Perth, for 33 years.

What is your selection process?

The first stage is recruitment. We advertise our jobs at various places to find available employees. Our 33 years presence in the industry has made us very well known to job seekers in Western Australia, Australia and around the World. This provides us with a nice flow of good new candidates. Our next step is our lengthy interviews to gather information about the candidates and their skills. Reference checking then follows before the candidates are added to our database. From our database we select the best available workers to provide to specific clients

Do you have insurance?

We certainly do. All of our employees are covered by our Workers Compensation Insurance. In addition we have Public Liability and Products Liability insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance.

What is your Code of Ethics?

Blue Collar People is an equal opportunity employer and we act ethically and honestly in all instances with both our clients and our employees.

How long have you been in business for?

We are extremely proud to say that we have been in business for 33 years in the Labour Hire Perth industry and have helped thousands of clients fulfill their labour needs over the time we have in business.
