A variety of workplaces, the chance to meet new people, and the opportunity to challenge yourself in different environments – these are just some of the many benefits of temping.
Temporary jobs may be on a short-term or long-term basis. Short-term temporary roles can include seasonal work, filling in for a staff member if they’re sick, or working in a company during busy times. Longer-term temporary roles may be to cover maternity leave or for a role with a limited lifespan, such as project work.
Temporary jobs can be part-time, full-time or offered as shift work. If you are employed on a temporary basis, you will most likely be required to fill in a time sheet for the hours you work, rather than be put on a company’s payroll as an employee.
5 key features of temporary jobs
Variety: Temping provides great employment variety. Working in a temporary job means you may not work for a company for very long, this can give you a great insight into different company cultures, industries, roles and the range of skills within different organisations. If you like variety in your work, then temping is a great way to get it!
Flexibility: Need to be home during school holidays but free during term time? Temping gives you the flexibility to work when you want – or when you can. At Asset Recruitment, we don’t just place you in any role. We first get an understanding of the type of work you’re interested in, have experience with, and the hours you want to work. For us, it’s about finding the right fit – even in a temporary job.
Experience: If you are considering a career change, taking the opportunity to work in an organisation on a temporary or casual basis can help you get a feel for the environment or industry to determine if it’s right for you.
Finding work quickly Temporary jobs tend to come up quickly and at Asset Recruitment, we aim to fill them quickly with the right candidate. This aspect of temping is great for people who are returning from overseas, waiting for the ‘right’ permanent job to come up, or who are in between jobs.
Expanding your network: Temping offers a variety of work experiences, but it also gives you the opportunity to meet a range of people, thus expanding your professional network. Step into every temping job with an open mind – you never know who you might meet or the skills you may learn.
