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.

Emma - June 2012

Emma registered with me in Dec 2011 and within a week we had her in an assignment and she has been there ever since – she is one of those people who just gets her head down and gets on with it, dealing with all the challenges thrown at her and still keeping a smile on her face. Well done Emma this award is well deserved; thank you for being such a hard working temp!

Martin - July 2012

Martin has been great since the first day he registered with us – he had not got home before we called him back to the office to go out to work for us. True to his word he has done everything we have asked of him. His ability to adapt to the work environment he is presented with is amazing – he has gone from waiting tables at a top end wedding to rouging (picking wild oats) for local farmers. Thank you so much Martin, once you have completed the exciting assignment we have lined up for you at the Olympics, I hope to secure a permanent placement. Well done!

Jakub - May 2012

Jakub does not know the meaning of the word NO! Every time we call him with an offer of work he says YES – even at VERY short notice. When we ask how he is he says “good, waiting for you to call”. Jakub has proved to be hard working, flexible in fact a good all rounder, nothing is too much trouble – Thank you Jakub it’s great to have you in the team!

James - April 2012

Hardworking and so very Unassuming James could probably be listed as one of the most unassuming candidates on our books, but underneath this very quiet exterior lies a determined, reliable and hardworking young man. We have tested our theory by offering James the most diverse of roles over the past few months from washing up, repackaging cuts of meat and envelope stuffing! All these far removed from his training in the hospitality trade. Aside of being an excellent temp, James has been generous enough to offer lifts to others without their own transport to enable them to get to an assignment. Thank you James, we wish you every success in your new role in the retail trade.
