On-Hire Local

 

Blue Tongue partner with our clients, implementing the best workforce solution for predictability and consistency over project delivery.

Blue Tongue is unique in that it has a full time employee (not casuals) heavy maintenance workforce based in regional areas around Australia.

We have been able to achieve this workforce capability through our development of unique labour management programs such as our group training upskilling program and also our 457 sponsored labour agreements. Both of these programs allow us to provide a long term contract to perm model for our clients who are looking for us to take on all the up-front employment and training (or sponsorship) risk, however with the aim of taking over our workforce directly after a 15 months period.

However at times of project demand where more flexibility is required and our clients are looking for a temp to perm or short term labour solution, our expert team is also well placed to provide on-hire services to help our clients through peaks and troughs.
