About Us

Workforce Extensions Is Australia’s Leading Owner-Operated Labour Hire Business Network

Established in 1997, Workforce Extensions was a supplier of contract or on-hire staff, principally to the horticulture industry. Today the company has expanded to include the supply of personnel, both temporary and permanent to almost any industry throughout most of Australia. Some of the industries we service include healthcare, industrial, horticulture, domestic and commercial construction, administration, transport and logistics, civil construction, waste management, security and mining.

In 2002 Workforce Extensions expanded to include our franchised team of business partners, which has strengthened the distribution of our services. Foundations are now in place to grow the business significantly throughout Australia/New Zealand. Workforce Extensions is now embarking on the next phase of development to recruit another 50 outstanding business partners.

We are all about setting new standards in labour hire and recruitment throughout Australia. Workforce Extensions is unashamedly different to other labour hire and recruitment organisations; because we are a franchised partnership we have the scale and resources of other national firms but have the decentralised decision making for faster service. Each of our business partners is available RIGHT now, with the RIGHT people, at the RIGHT time and delivering service in the RIGHT way.

Our Difference

Our difference is our personal service. Because we are a franchised system each of our offices is owned and operated by a franchisee who is available to understand your specific recruitment and labour hire needs. With Workforce Extensions not only do you deal with business owners who have extensive staffing experience, but they will be there year in, year out consistently providing your business with the RIGHT staff in the RIGHT way.
