Workforce Extensions is a national labour hire company, providing businesses with temp, casual and permanent staff across a wide range of industries throughout Australia. From our humble beginnings in 1997, we have expanded to over 25 offices operating in most states and territories.

Workforce Extensions is proud to offer our clients a comprehensive supply of temporary or permanent staff for all types of jobs in all industries including (but not limited to) warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, transport and logistics, horticulture, domestic, commercial and construction, hospitality, security healthcare and aged care.

Each Workforce Extensions is owned by a local businessperson, operating through a franchise agreement, which means our clients receive the benefits of financial strength, systems, and safety management that a national network provides, coupled with a stable on-going relationship with a business owner who is available to provide immediate service and advice.

Our offering transcends the typical franchising arrangement. As Franchisor we take care of a significant portion of the financing, administration, and day-to-day business systems, leaving you free to capitalise on your network contacts.


We only want to partner with the best in the industry, so we look for people who have a background in labour hire, recruitment or general temp/casual staffing and have a demonstrated talent for sales.

Some of our most successful Franchisees come to us with this background or are business partners who cover the required capabilities between them. We want all our Franchisees to be as successful as they can be, so coming on board with the required experience is essential.

If you possess the following attributes, we want to hear from you!

  • Practical temp recruitment / labour hire experience
  • A talent for driving sales
  • Recruitment skills for matching candidates to a job
  • A network of candidates and or clients you can approach
  • Willingness to become a “team player” in our network
  • Confidence to back yourself


We don’t have large joining fees as we want to attract the right potential business owners. 

We only partner with those with recruitment or labour hire experience, demonstrated sales ability and industry contacts which means we don’t need to spend a lot of time or resources training on the recruitment processes.

We will disclose all the costs associated with the program once we have qualified that we are right for each other.


We don’t have a required timeline to joining out network, you can be onboarded as quickly or slowly as you are comfortable with. We expect all potential partners to do their due diligence before signing on, but from contract sign date, you can be up and running within a matter of weeks.
