Are you looking for a new challenge, just starting out in the world of work, or seeking a career change. Whatever your situation, if you are looking for work, have you considered a temporary role?
Earl Street Employment Consultants offer a wide selection of excellent temporary roles. Here are our top five reasons why this kind of work could be perfect for you…
1. Learn New Skills
Each company will have different ways of doing things, use different computer programs, and have different goals, even within the same industry. By temping in various roles you can learn new skills and experience how different companies operate. This can make you very employable.
2. Gain Experience
Work experience is key to making your CV look impressive to employers. So rather than sit and wait for the perfect permanent role, why not apply for a temporary role, even if it is not exactly what you thought you wanted. For example, general administration experience is key for most office based jobs, and a great all round skill to have put into practice.
3. Find out what you enjoy doing
A temp role will allow you to experience different things and figure out what interests and motivates you the most. Then you will be best placed to move forward with your career, whether its in a permanent job, or similar ongoing temp roles.
4. You’re still protected
Don’t forget that as a temporary employee you are still entitled to benefits such as sick pay and holiday allowance. You are also expected to be given the same quality of working conditions as your permanent colleagues.
5. Who knows where it will lead
If you work hard and prove yourself invaluable there is no telling where a temp job will lead. Many of our roles are ‘ongoing’ or ‘temp to perm’, so once you have learnt the job, established yourself in the team and proved your worth, you are likely to be rewarded with an indefinite or permanent contract.
