Temporary Worker Solutions


GRS, the largest recruitment agency in Cyprus, and received the first license in Cyprus to provide temporary workers in Cyprus under the Temporary Workers Act 2012.  The license, issued by the Cyprus Ministry of Labour, means GRS are the only licensed recruitment agency able to provide temporary workers to its clients in Cyprus. The law has been enacted by Cyprus in order to remain in line with EU regulations on the supply of labor regulating the activities of recruitment agencies.

Our service includes:

  • Recruiting and resourcing of all personnel
  • Checking references and immigration status of all personnel engaged
  • Issuing GRS Contracts of Employment to all personnel
  • Timely payroll of all employees’ salaries on a monthly basis including statutory payments to the social insurance and PAYE
  • Registering all employees with local tax and social insurance authorities 
  • Arranging flights, Visas, medicals and vaccinations for personnel where applicable

Temporary workers are an excellent solution to cover absences of permanent staff due to maternity leave, holidays, long term sickness or to deal with peaks in workload without increasing headcount on the balance sheet.

GRS manages the payroll of temporary workers for many local and international companies including some of the world’s most well-known brands. In addition, GRS, through its Cyprus-based group company, Fairfax Yeaman Ltd, also manages the accounting, immigration services and outsourced payroll for many local and international companies.
