Temporary staff are often an integral part of many organisations’ staffing requirements across the UK, with many businesses looking for a flexible workforce to provide additional support at key times, for example with projects, peaks and increase in business, or for holiday or sickness cover. After recent legislation, flexible working is now an option for everyone in the UK.
Temporary assignments can range from a few days, to a few months, or even longer. Benefits of temporary work include:
- the ability to have control over your work life - choosing if, when and where you would like to work and also for how long
- the opportunity to work for a wide variety of companies and industries
allowing you to increase your experience
- the chance to increase your skills and even develop new ones
- time to reach a decision on what direction you wish to take your career, whilst in paid work
Temporary work may also in some instances lead to a permanent role. Many employers will consider offering a temporary worker a permanent position if they have demonstrated their skills and abilities. Indeed, some companies use this method to source all their permanent employees - this is often referred to as ‘temporary to permanent’.
