JAC Recruitment launches contract and payroll service line in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia

Today JAC Recruitment launched their new service line, Contract and Payroll Services in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. The latest service, readily available to clients today, will offer a variety of temporary staffing solutions to clients currently facing permanent talent shortages. The Contract and Payroll service line is the first of many new business lines to be delivered as part of JAC Group’s strategic growth plan.

Driven by JAC Group’s Group Managing Director (Ex Japan), Adil Driouech, JAC Group’s strategic growth plan aims to transform its operations outside Japan and deliver a range of new service lines across all 11 countries.

“The pandemic has changed the way of work and with ongoing changes continuing to take place, the need for flexibility and agility has become integral to managing ongoing business demands,” explains Driouech. “Just as the industry of the workforce has had to adapt to challenges caused by the pandemic, so too does every company’s approach to attracting and retaining talent.”

 Key features of JAC’s Contract and Payroll services:

• Interim staffing solutions – for clients that require immediate staffing support or interim staff support
• Outsourced payroll system – an agile service that allows clients to focus on managing and growing their business while saving them time on accounting, payroll, and administration
• Project support – for clients who are working on large-scale projects that require a comprehensive team to help achieve their business plans
• Innovative contractor care system – a solution that offers guidance and advice to the contractor throughout their assignment with the client     

“We have seen a growing number of professionals required, particularly with skills in Technology. While most companies would prefer to hire a permanent employee due to the scarcity in talent, companies are being forced to look for alternative solutions which is driving the need for contingent work demand globally,” says Fahad Farook, Regional Director, IT, Digital & Regional Contracting.

"Businesses across the region including Hong Kong have become notably more open to offering contract positions over permanent roles, with candidates becoming increasingly more receptive to contract positions due to its flexibility,” says Driouech.

Plans to expand the Contract and Payroll service into Germany are expected to take place in Q3, 2022.

“It is an exciting time for candidates, as contracting will give them the flexibility of working with different employers, allow them to sample new industries, build different skills and expand their career opportunities,” says Farook. “And if their skill set is highly regarded, they have the potential to earn well.”

The Contract and Payroll service is now available in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia.
