Do you need a reliable and experienced temporary contractor or tradesperson for your construction project?

The type of people who you might be looking to hire on a temporary basis could include commercial plumbers, electricians, lighting specialists, heating engineers, builders, decorators, scaffolders, carpenters and more. But, one thing should remain the same and that’s the standards of professionalism you should expect from them.

After all, having an unreliable contractor at the start of or part way through a project can cause all sorts of problems and delays further down the line, something which you, as the project manager, will want to avoid.

Hiring temporary contractors

The number of businesses hiring temporary contractors is on the rise as they look to keep costs down. One way that they can do this is by only paying for the workforce as and when it’s needed, rather than employing full time workers.

Of course, when you hire temporary contractors for any work onsite, it’s important that you, as project manager, take all necessary health and safety considerations into account. But what should you expect from the onsite contractors in return?

You should expect a high and consistent level of professionalism from all your onsite contractors, which includes but is not limited to:

  • Reliable timekeeping
  • Professional, friendly and hardworking attitude
  • Fully qualified to carry out the work
  • Registered by all relevant industry bodies
  • Trained in all necessary safety procedures
  • Experience of working on similar sized projects in the past

Make the right checks

A great way to be sure that you will achieve this level of professionalism across your contract workforce is by doing your research before hiring your commercial plumber or electrician.
