Temporary (Contract) Staff

Our goal is to make the agricultural recruitment process as stress free and uncomplicated for you as possible.

Agstaff will take care of all ACC costs, holiday pay, sick pay, bereavement leave, statutory holidays, kiwisaver, and PAYE – with no additional charge to you. We also provide the extra service of delivering our temporary agricultural contract workers to your site, on time every day (primary sector ashburton), which all part of Agstaff’s commitment to provide seamless employment solutions for our clients.

And did we mention … We have one of the largest databases of contract staff in the country. The names on our contract database all undergo the same stringent application process as the permanent staff to ensure we place high quality employees. Our background and reference checks are ongoing and thorough, for the added security of knowing that your contract employee will be trustworthy and hardworking.
