What are the advantages of using temporary work?

If you're unsure about what you want to do in the future, temporary work can help you make a decision. Temporary assignments give you the flexibility and exposure to different types of jobs helping develop new skills.

Temporary work involves a three way relationship between the client, the agency and the candidate. The client needs workers who are able to do the job effectively and are available at short notice for a specified period of time. The agency needs reliable people to fill the role along with representing the agency and the candidate needs work for a source of income, gaining experience and potential opportunities for the future. Each party relies on the other for mutual benefit.

Temporary work helps with:

Gaining exposure

Helps you gain exposure to what's available out there, by giving you a taste of different industries and roles. The opportunity to see different work cultures and ethics also the ability to decide if a specific job is something that you would like to work for full time in the future.

Transitioning into permanent employment

Once you’re on a job as a temporary worker, the employer gets a chance to see you shine. Don’t be surprised if what started out as a week’s assignment turns into a permanent job offer which we see happen often with our temps. When that time comes, you’ll know if this is a company that you want to stay with long-term.

Flexibility and Gaining Skills

Flexibility is one of the advantages of temporary work. Temporary employment agencies typically tell you about available positions that match your skills and interests. Gives you the opportunity to build up skills to increase your opportunity for new career paths or full time positions.

Temporary work has its challenges but it also has its victories.
