Temporary work – everything you need to know

You are expecting a gap in your employment, you’ve left college/Uni and want to start earning, or perhaps you would just like to have a role that offers the flexibility you need. Have you considered registering with us to work as a temporary agency worker?

In this blog, we explain everything you need to know about temporary work.

Temporary work – what is it?

Temporary work is often a short term assignment which offers flexibility a long with the usual employment benefits that you’d expect to receive. It can often lead to longer term employment.

What hours will I work?

We have several shift patterns to choose from, and many of our clients can be flexible depending on your circumstances. Just let us know the hours you are available to work, and we can see what’s available.

What if I want to stop being a temporary worker?

We ask all of our temporary workers to give us as much notice as possible (ideally a week) if circumstances changes. Always speak to us if there are any problems and give us plenty of notice if you can no longer work the scheduled shifts.

When will I get paid?

Our temporary workers get paid weekly. We use faster payments which means a lot of our temporary workers receive their wages on the Wednesday, although we do not guarantee the wages until the following Friday.

Is it free?

Yes! Registering with us is completely free and costs you nothing but your time.

Do I receive any other benefits?

Yes, as a temporary agency worker you are an employee, and are therefore entitled to statutory holiday (28 days / year, pro-rated), employer pension contributions after 13 weeks and other statutory entitlements.

Does working as a temporary worker lead to a permanent position?

In many cases yes, although this is not guaranteed. It is always at the client’s discretion as to whether they want to offer you a permanent position.
