As George says - it's a nuisance word: his answer is the closest anyone got but it's still not the specific term I was after: jobshopper...

contracted out


Explanation:
If this is on the right track, then you have to work it into the grammar.
"Third party" dates back to before the contemporary craze for contracting out.
But,if this is on the right track, then you could use "Third party" later in the text.
It would be nice to see a bit of context, rather than reading the Rosetta by the light of a match.
