In simple terms, temp work is a period of non-fixed term employment where a position can last from one day to several months. You are typically paid on a pre-agreed hourly rate basis and assignments can be full or part-time. You are entitled to 28 days holiday per year and this will be accrued throughout your assignment.
Contract work is a similar alternative to permanent employment, but positions are typically undertaken on a “fixed-term” basis and with specific skills in mind. You are usually paid a monthly salary direct from the client on a pro-rata basis with a notice period on both sides. Whilst your salary is fixed, working as a contractor usually means you are entitled to the same benefits as a permanent member of staff, just on a pro-rata basis.
Interim assignments require experienced individuals with specialist skill sets to resolve business issues on a fixed term or project basis. These roles span all disciplines and sectors and are undertaken on a daily rate basis or pro-rata contract.
Joining the temporary workforce is no longer viewed as just a “stop-gap” but a career choice and can provide you with a number of additional benefits:
– Competitive rate of pay
– More frequent income stream (if paid hourly)
– Timesheets are submitted weekly
– Gain new skills/systems knowledge and enhance your CV
– Exposure to a variety of sectors and terminologies
– Experience different work cultures and environments with different management styles
– Can bridge the gap between permanent jobs
– You are more “appealing” to a potential employer than a candidate who is not working
– Ideal “test bed” when re-entering the workplace
– Meet new people and expand your network
– Potential opportunity to travel with international companies
