Contract Recruitment

Our contract recruitment operation helps businesses to find the best engineers on the market at short notice. Our extensive network of engineering contractors makes us the first choice for our clients looking for temporary support.

We take care of time sheets and payments, becoming the first point of contact for your engineering freelancers. Our large contract team includes recruiters, compliance, payroll and administration, all there to make the process of hiring contractors as easy as possible for our clients.


We have worked with thousands of businesses, and several haven’t known the benefit of hiring contractors before talking to Ganymede about their requirements. The flexibility of contractors and temporary solutions allows businesses to forecast engineers needed for particular projects or workloads, and only pay for the additional support when it’s needed with no long-term commitments.
