Randstad US to hire over 14,000 workers

Randstad US last week announced a massive hiring campaign for more than 14,000 seasonal jobs across the country.

The hiring spree will take place over the coming months and is in anticipation of a busy holiday season for e-commerce, shipping and logistics companies, as well as financial institutions and healthcare organisations.

Recruitment for these jobs will take place through the end of the year, kicking off with virtual career fairs this week.

As employers ramp up for their peak hiring season, Randstad will recruit for many in-demand positions, such as warehouse support roles, like forklift operators, assemblers and picker/packers, and customer support and call center positions.

“The good news for out-of-work Americans is that several industries are expected to scale up in the coming months,” said Greg Dyer, president of commercial staffing at Randstad US.

“Randstad US is committed to getting Americans back to work. One way we are doing that is through our virtual career fairs, which allow individuals to learn more about how their skills can match seasonal opportunities, which could lead to permanent employment.”
