thumbs up man temping

Posted 15.01.18

Struggling to find a permanent job? Or don’t want to tie yourself down to one? Then maybe temping is the option for you.

1. The Freedom

What’s the biggest benefit of temporary work? You’re in control. It might be scary at first not having a fixed job but you’ll soon start to love the flexibility it offers.

2. The Development

Even if you’re doing the same work, different companies use different software’s and have different procedures and methods. Through temping you’ll constantly be learning new skills, arguably more so than you would in a fixed job, due to its changing nature.

3. Networking

Whether it’s for references or building professional connections, temping can really lengthen your contacts book with people who can potentially help you later on down the line.

4. Getting that foot in the door

Some jobs are very competitive and therefore temping can be a great way to get your foot in the door.

5. The security

Don’t forget – a temporary employee still has the same rights as a permanent employee and are therefore entitled to the same benefits, like sick pay for example.

9. Testing the waters

Thinking of a career change? Or not sure on a career path yet? Temping is a great way to test the water in a new or unfamiliar line of work so you can see if its really for you.
