Some people who live in the capital now, or who intend to move to Madrid, can be excellent candidates for temporary employment agencies. Students that are looking for a job to have an income, want to be able to continue their stay and to be able to pay for costs that arise. Expats who have just moved to Madrid and are trying to find work for some extra money, need to adapt to the customs and norms of national companies, but professionals are always sought after. Seasonal jobs, as waiters, tour guides or hotel employees, are available if you really want to work. Temporary employment agencies are organizations that act as intermediaries between companies and professionals. They provide human resource services to match demand and supply by companies and professionals. Although they also have long-term employment options, companies often hire employees through these agencies, because they offer certain tax benefits if employees are hired through them, instead of being hired directly by the company.
