Questions about temp-to-perm recruitment
This is up to you to decide, but often temp to perm contracts will be somewhere between 0-6 months as the initial trial period.
The duration of the trial period can be stopped at any time and easily changed to a permanent contract, and if you don’t wish to hire during or after the trial period, the placement ends.

Temporary recruitment is slightly different to temp to perm, although sometimes used interchangeably.
Temporary hires are usually only required for seasonal spikes in demand or for short-term projects. Whereas temp to perm staff are hired with the view of eventually becoming a permanent employee.
No matter how well-structured and thorough a hiring process is, sometimes a candidate who interviews with ease and has a great CV may end up being a poor fit for the role.
This can cost the company time and resources in both the short and long term. One of the advantages of hiring temporary staff is that you have a trial period to reduce the impact of unsuitable hires.
By placing a candidate in a working environment and tasking them with the duties expected of their role, you can assess their capabilities and see how they fit with the existing team.
