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.

Tom we can’t thank you enough – we all say in the office ‘we need another Tom’ – make sure you keep in touch once you return to Uni and let us know when you are back in the area.
