Temp Zone

More and more companies are talking to us about their temporary staff. Whether it is to work on specific projects or to see how someone can fit into their team before they offer a permanent placement.

Broaden your skills
Temping is an ideal way to increase your exposure to new industry sectors, products, IT systems, management styles and company cultures.

Test the water
If you are considering changing career direction, temping will allow you to test the water in a new area before you commit to a new vocation.

Financial rewards
As a temp you are paid by the hour which means the more hours you work, the more money you can earn. Temps also tend to be in high demand which means you can often command more money than a permanent person in the same position.

Foot in the door
Once you are temping within a business, you are perfectly placed to spot any permanent opportunities which may arise. It is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate your abilities and get yourself noticed.

Suit your lifestyle
As a temp, you can pick and choose the length of assignments you wish to work on to suit your lifestyle, often resulting in a better work-life balance.

Expand your social circles
Temping is a fantastic way to meet new people - every new assignment brings with it a whole new circle of friends!

What is the difference between temporary and contract work?
Temporary work is generally paid weekly for the number of hours worked. The position can often be for an indefinite amount of time and you will be paid by the consultant who placed you. Contract work is generally for a fixed period of time (e.g. 6 months) and you will be paid directly by the company for whom you are working.

How long do temporary assignments last?
This really depends on the reason for the assignment. It can range from one week (e.g. for holiday cover) to 3 months (e.g. project work), to 6 months (e.g. for maternity cover) or sometimes even a year.

All employees should receive a minimum of four weeks paid leave per annum.

Tax and National Insurance
We will automatically deduct PAYE (Pay As You Earn) tax and National Insurance (NI) from your salary.
