Our team is highly experienced in filling temporary positions with exceptional candidates at competitive rates, in the fastest time possible.

Whether you’re looking to hire temp staff for holiday cover, a maternity contract or a temp-to-perm solution, our consultants will provide the support your business or household needs.



As a generalist contract staffing agency, we place exceptional jobseekers into a wide range of positions . Our dedication to the companies we work with has earned us a reputation as a highly respected service-driven consultancy, based on our ability to exceed expectations time and time again. While we are the go-to temp agency in Dubai for many of our clients, we also recruit temps in the UAE and further afield.

We possess the expertise to find you the very best individuals to meet your requirements. But our work doesn’t stop at the placement: thorough follow up is extremely important to us and we take great pride in ensuring that the process of hiring temp staff is as stress-free as possible for you.

These include support staff positions, like personal assistants, executive assistants and administrative professionals, in addition to a range of diverse senior roles such as legal counsel, CFOs, web developers, business consultants and PR managers.


Our careful screening and selection process means that we do all the work behind the scenes to guarantee your match with the very best temporary candidates. To hire contractors, simply follow these steps:

  1. Call your consultant (or dial +971 4 4504744) to brief in your requirement
  2. On the call, we will ask you how long the requirement is likely to be for, what the job description entails, where the temp will be working and how soon you need them to start. We’ll also ask you what the permanent salary equivalent is so that we can ascertain the right level of candidate and provide you with an approximate hourly rate you can expect to pay.
  3. Depending on how long the assignment is for and the start date, you may or may not want to see a shortlist of CVs. Depending on the complexity and urgency of the role, we endeavour to have a shortlist with you on the same day or within 24 hours.

If the temp assignment or contract is for a longer-term basis, you may wish to meet with them for an interview which we are happy to arrange. At this stage, we can also take references and carry out DBS checks.

FAQs about hiring temp staff

How do you screen and evaluate your candidates?

When we receive a candidate’s CV via a job advert or online, our consultants then meet them face-to-face for a minimum 30-minute interview to assess their suitability and test their skills, as well as check their eligibility to work and their references. Delivering a high-quality service is paramount to the way we work at Tiger. We do all the work behind the scenes, including Microsoft Office testing, and DBS checks, as well as ensure the temp has the right to work and is on the correct visa. This guarantees you receive the very best temporary staffing solution.

How much does a temp agency charge an employer?

It depends on the seniority of the job. Temp agencies generally issue you an invoice for every week that the temp candidate works with you – this means that their working hours will be directly reflected in your weekly invoice. This includes the candidate’s hourly rate, their holiday contribution, pension, national insurance, any expenses, bonuses and the agency margin.
