Do you secretly wonder what it might be like to work in a completely different job, or company? If you’re desperate for some variety and a little more flexibility in your work schedule, have you ever considered the benefits of temping?
Many people toy with the idea of trying something new, but taking action is another matter altogether. If you’re thinking of trying out a different career path but aren’t sure which one you’d like to commit to, temporary employment offers a wide range of benefits.
From a variety of workplace setting to the ability to choose your shifts, temping with a recruitment agency opens up a lot of exciting possibilities. However, getting the right agency is essential to making the most of your temping experience. Here are a few advantages of temping with us.
1. Try as many different jobs as you like!
We partner with businesses of all shapes and sizes, so when you temp with Prime, you’ll get to try a little bit of everything. With 6 distinctive divisions, we have roles available across a wide range of sectors, from factory work to finance. Many of these will even pay for on-the-job training! In effect, when you temp with Prime, you get to try before you buy and build up an impressive skill set along the way. What better way to figure out what type of job you’d like to commit to when and if you do decide to go permanent?
2. You’ll be supported…
From CV help and interview tips to performance feedback and after-care at your placement, we’ll do everything we can to make your recruitment journey a success. After all, there’s a reason we frequently top the Google review charts for the most highly candidate-rated recruitment agency in Essex!
3. Make connections!
One of the best benefits of temping is the chance to get networking! Working across a huge variety of sectors, you’ll be able to build up a great reference bank. That way, if you decide to go permanent later on down the line, you’ll have someone to put in a good word for you. Take it from the recruiters: there’s nothing like a list of ringing endorsements on your Linkedin profile to make you a stellar candidate!
4. Get paid weekly
We operate a straightforward PAYE system, where you’ll be paid in regular weekly instalments. We’ll administer your income tax and national insurance deductions, subtracting these from your wages ahead of payday. All you have to do is submit your timesheets online to our accounts department by Tuesday evening. Worried about forgetting? Our support staff will send you a friendly reminder on the morning of payroll, so you’re always on time.
5. Build up holiday as you work
We believe in a work-life balance. To make sure you get more than enough “life” in addition to your “work”, we do everything we can to make it quick and easy for you to book time off. You’ll accrue up holiday as and when you choose to work, depending on the number of hours you decide to do. Once you decide it’s time for a break, all you have to do is contact our friendly holiday department.
Many of our temporary workers choose to schedule their work around childcare, college or university studies, or any number of other commitments. Whether you’re looking for a 9-5 job, night or weekend shifts, or something else altogether, a key benefit of temping is the freedom it can offer.
7. Start your pension
We’re all about staying one step ahead at Prime and that includes supporting our temporary worker’s financial goals! When you start your temporary placement, we will auto-enrol you onto your government-approved workplace pension scheme. As well as administering your own automatic 5% deduction from your wages, we will match 3% of whatever you’ve earned and add this to your retirement fund. Now how’s that for forward planning?
Thinking of giving the temp life a try? Whatever your future goals, there are many benefits you can gain from the challenges and opportunities temporary work brings. If you’re interested in becoming more adaptable and testing your mettle in a few different environments, more and more people are finding temporary work to be the best way forward.
