GRS Recruitment Issued with the first Temporary Worker License
29 September 2014
GRS, the largest recruitment agency in Cyprus, is pleased to announce the granting of the first license in Cyprus to provide temporary workers in Cyprus under the Temporary Workers Act 2012. Steve Slocombe, founder of the GRS Group, commented: “We have worked very closely with the Ministry of Labour on securing the license over the last few months as this has been breaking new ground for both GRS and the Ministry of Labour”.
The new 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.
He added: “The issuing of the license marks an important strategic step for GRS in ensuring that the company can continue to provide temporary workers to its clients in Cyprus. We have seen a significant growth in the temporary employment market in Cyprus since we began operations in 2005 and more companies are looking at how a flexible workforce can benefit their organization. The 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 was founded in 2005 and now has offices in Limassol, Nicosia and Malta, with 20 employees. Managing a wealth of career opportunities and industries in Cyprus and Malta, the company services both clients and candidates in fulfilling employment opportunities by combining unparalleled expertise, industry-specific knowledge and an extensive candidate database.
