Types of Temporary roles

There can be a range of reasons why businesses and teams hire temporary employees; situations such as someone being on vacation or sick leave, team members being seconded to help with projects elsewhere in the business, or even as an 'audition' for a permanent role.

Roles can range from all levels from transactional/support, mid-level and senior/management positions. To view the roles we recruit click here.

Working Rights / Visas

Temporary work is not exclusively for those on a visa. It can be a great way to return to the market or upskill if you have Permanent working rights. However, Australia has a number of different visas which do allow you to work; and temporary work can be a great way to gain experience whilst holding a Working Holiday Visa (417 / 462), Student Visa (500), Graduate Visa (485) and Bridging Visas with working rights.

Employment & Timesheets

If you are working as a temporary employee, you will gain access to our online payroll and timesheet system. You will be asked to input your timesheets weekly and paid on a weekly basis (unless otherwise specified). Your Richard Lloyd Temp Recruiter will brief you on this before your role begins.


Richard Lloyd Recruitment has partnered with WorkPro to deliver our occupational health and safety needs. Before you begin your role you will have to complete your induction and training to ensure you are safe and comfortable whilst working, and the results are securely stored.

It is important that you complete this information as soon as possible.
