Would temporary work suit me?

Temping means you control your hours and how often you work! You fit work around your life rather than life around work. Temping often means you get a chance to access to a variety of duties which will develop vital skills and enhance you CV Temporary work gives you the opportunity to explore your career options and try out various different roles, a sort of try before you buy!


Temp work often means you have a foot in the door should a permanent position become available. Temporary employees enjoy the same basic working and employment conditions that they would receive if they were a permanent employee doing the same job, limited to pay and conditions. Temp jobs open up a world of opportunity, sometimes the least expected opportunity can lead to a life changing career change.


If you would like know more about Temporary Working and whether it's right for you please call us on 01747 825661.

Anthony came to Octopus after being out of work for sometime due a serious injury. We found Anthony work in an area he really enjoys and we have seen his confidence soar. Anthony goes above and beyond in the workplace helping to supervise as necessary and even helps out fellow workers with lifts. Thank you Anthony and it’s great to see you back out at work!

Simon started as a temp with one of our clients and was quickly offered a permanent position having proved his expertise and skills. He is now a valuable asset within the team. We are sad to lose him as a temp but happy he was recognised as temp of the month.
