Temporary, Seasonal Employment In Hungary On The Rise
The number of Hungarians who did temporary or seasonal work rose by 7 percent to 631,000 in the first half from the same period a year earlier, daily Magyar Idők said, citing data from National Tax and Customs Office (NAV).

The number of temporary and seasonal workers rose at about the same pace as a year earlier, the data show.

Hungarians employed in temporary and seasonal jobs in the first six months of 2018 worked almost 14 million days, up from 10 million in the same period a year earlier and 9 million in the first half of 2016.

NAV offers businesses that make temporary and seasonal hires a streamlined procedure for registering labourers that can be completed online or over the telephone.
