The nature of casual work
The total number of casual workers in Australia is sitting at 20.1% of the total workforce, totalling at 2,396,500 workers. What these numbers show is that 1 in 5 workers relies on casual employment in some way to provide an income.
Thanks to advances in technology and innovation, the casual employment trend looks only to increase as the On Demand economy continues to boom. In today's world, it has never been easier to find employers who are providing casual jobs in Sydney. Companies are constantly looking for skilled people to come in and fill jobs at the time they need them done.
Up until now, it has been tough for companies to find casual workers. Their typical ways of searching would involve word of mouth, or going through a lengthy process of posting a job ad and looking to hire someone. Problems come in that it can be very hard to find skilled workers through word of mouth, and posting a job and looking for applicants easily becomes an overly complicated process. The standard hiring process generally applies to long-term employment but does not do much to solve the problem of finding casual workers for a short term.
