Temporary Jobs

Temping offers flexibility to fit around other commitments or to fill a gap in between permanent employment whilst you are job hunting. We have experience in providing candidates to work on a short term, temporary and contract basis for a range of clients both in the creative and corporate sectors. Working as a temp is a brilliant way to explore different industries and positions, and to gain valuable work experience. So many of our candidates end up securing a permanent role through their temporary placements, it can be a great introduction rather than going through the normal interview process.


Please find below some of the common questions we get asked about temping. If you would like any further information, please get in touch with us directly.

How are temporary members of staff paid?

We pay our temps on a per-hour rate, which is paid on a weekly basis in arrears. We will provide you with a time sheet which you complete at the end of each week you work, get it approved by your line manager and then return to us so we know the hours you have worked and can process to payroll.

What is a temp to perm contract?

A temp to perm contract is essentially a permanent role but starting on a temporary basis. This is usually for a short period of time so that both parties can assess if the hire is the right one long term. Often the interview process for a temp to perm role is shorter then when hiring for a straight perm role, so it can be a quick way to secure a new role and allow you to test it out before you commit long term!

How many hours does a temp employee work?

You will be told before any temp assignment the core hours you will be required to work, but sometimes as with any role, flexibility is required. Generally, the temp will work the same office hours as other permanent members of staff in the business although sometimes a temp is needed to cover a specific time period. Before taking any assignment you will be provided with as many details as possible to ensure you are happy and can commit to the booking.

Can I still be looking for a permanent role whilst temping?

Yes absolutely, if you are looking for a permanent role, temping should not stop this. All we ask is that any interviews are arranged around the working day to have as little impact as possible on your temporary assignment and we will always help you to arrange this. Temping often leads to permanent opportunities and is a super way to build up your experience, so it is usually advantages to your permanent search.

What makes a good temp?

Being able to pick up new skills and systems quickly is key to being a temp as you are thrown into different companies and roles and need to be able to hit the ground running. Also being reliable and flexible is so important as often temp requests come in at the last minute.
