There are generally two types of work with employers – temporary and permanent. Deciding whether temporary or permanent working is for you can be difficult; to help you choose, here's our list of the benefits temporary working could offer you...
With temporary work, you're in charge of your own career. Temping allows for an easier fit of employment around your life, resulting in less stress and better overall happiness.
Quick and steady income
If you're looking for your dream job but you just can't seem to find it yet, a temporary role will provide a steady source of income during the search. You might even end up loving the temporary job itself!
Boost for your CV
Being in between jobs for a long time can affect the way an employer will look at you and your resume. Temporary work can plug the gap between long term roles – lots of experience can look good on a CV too.
Low-risk job try-outs
Temporary work can give you the opportunity to try out a job, employer or industry, and if you don't know what career you want to set yourself in, temping can help you decide.
Temporary working makes it much easier to transfer to different career paths, and allows for a much smoother transition than permanent work does; similar to the previous point, this makes temping work ideal if you don't know what kind of career you want to commit to.
Benefits are often offered on top of temporary employment. Temps (like permanent employees) are protected and entitled to sick pay, holiday allowance and standard pay, as well as the same working conditions permanent colleagues get - Just also offers our temps a voluntary benefits scheme.
Getting a temp job with a company is a great way to put your foot in the door, and can often lead to a permanent job if you impress; this is referred to as temp-to-perm work.
Skills, especially transferable ones, are very important when you're working, and with temporary work, you get the ability to learn lots of different skills working in a large variety of roles.
Once you're safely placed in your new temporary role, the work will offer a wide range of networking opportunities. Networking can help you immensely down the line in your career, be that with job opportunities or references for your CV.
You will most likely get the opportunity to receive formal training in new skill areas. According to the ASA, 90% of temps get training in their jobs. This will aid you when applying for future work, be that temporary or permanent.
