Add enough value in your time that they’ll want to keep you too. Why steal a job, TF?

How would you actively do that? Should you be amazing? Yes. If the by product of that is that they hire you? Totally fine. If you actively undermining the person whose job you are bench-warming, please just get out of the business and go be a prison guard. We don’t need your kind here

Hate to be a downer here but from my experience...agencies rarely hire freelancers unless they've been working with the company for a while. While you might not be able to nab this person's job, you can certainly make yourself an asset to the team. Focus more on team goals and I think that may lead you where you want. Good luck!
