What is Temporary Solutions?

Our Services

Temporary Solutions is a program of the North Carolina Office of State Human Resources (OSHR). We provide state government agencies with a variety of services designed to fill temporary positions with highly qualified candidates and monitor agency compliance with temporary employment laws and policies.

Temporary Solutions provides the names of qualified candidates to agencies, processes payroll, withholds state and federal taxes, and verifies your employment eligibility. We also provide recruitment and onboarding services and ensure that eligible temporary workers are offered employer-provided health insurance.

Temporary Employment Opportunities

Vacant temporary positions are posted on the state’s Career page.  To apply for a temporary position, click on the name of the position you are interested in and then click “Apply” at the top of the advertisement.  You can also create an account without applying for a specific position by clicking on “Sign In” at the top of the Careers page.  There, you can fill out and save a state application and sign up for job alerts to receive email notifications when positions are posted in the job categories you select.

Job seekers may also send their resumes to our Recruitment Section at TSRecruit@nc.gov.  Our recruiters will store your resume and contact you if we find a temporary position that seems like a good fit.

From file clerks to managers and a wide range of highly-skilled roles, Temporary Solutions offers a variety of temporary office support, professional and paraprofessional assignments. Some of the occupations for which we recruit are: 

  • Administrative support
  • Agricultural, environmental and science
  • Corrections, law enforcement, and public safety
  • Education and training
  • Financial and business management
  • Institutional support services
  • Medical and health
  • Natural, historic, and cultural resources
  • Operations and trades

So, whether you are a state agency in need of temporary assistance or a qualified applicant seeking professional opportunities with North Carolina's largest employer, contact us to learn more about these job opportunities.

Temporary to Permanent*

Temporary employees gain valuable on-the-job experience that may help them qualify for permanent state government positions.  In 2022, 573 temporaries qualified for and were hired into permanent and time-limited positions within state government.
