What’s the difference between a listed service person and a temporary service provider?
Listed services have paid to be part of the Resource Network. They have an established business and/or have expertise in a particular field(s). Temp service providers are available to fill in at local businesses or take on short-term jobs, often at short notice. Many have a wide variety of skills to offer. Some temp providers are available for longer-term placement.
All service providers, whether temporary or listed, have had an extensive interview with Vashon Central. That’s how we know who’s a good fit for you.
How do I know if I need a temp service provider or someone from the Resource Network?
We’ll determine that when you contact Vashon Central. It will depend on who’s signed up or listed with Vashon Central at the time.
Are the listings and temp service providers licensed and bonded?
Some are, some are not. All have had their references and background checked. Vashon Central will thoroughly inform you of each person’s qualifications—you decide what is most important to you.
