While we continue to see growth in new jobs, companies are remaining cautious and temp jobs have become increasingly popular in the Irish market place.
So, if candidates are struggling to find a permanent job or don’t want to tie themselves down to one role for a long period of time, temping could be the answer.
Gain further experience
A job seeker may be unemployed for a variety of reasons and the temporary role may help to achieve the experience needed for their next role.
It is common to hear from our clients ‘lovely candidate but unfortunately they don’t have the experience in XYZ or a specific system for this role’
A temporary role may give a candidate that additional experience that will be required for a permanent role in the future.
A temporary role provides an income stream while the “real” job search continues.
When a candidate is in temporary employment through Leinster Appointments, we will continue to search for a permanent role if that is their long-term goal.
Therefore, the temporary worker can continue to earn while we search for their next permanent role.
A change of Industry / Role
It may give the job seeker a chance to “test drive” a job, an employer, a profession, or an industry.
Candidates tend to get the urge to try a new Industry or position but not sure if it would be the right move long term?
No problem – maybe try this on a temporary basis, no long-term commitment and the candidate may have a clearer picture of what to expect.
Potential for permanent opportunity
We call this “temp-to-perm.” These jobs give both the employee and the employer an opportunity to see how they work together.
Depending on the reason for the temporary role, there can be long term or permanent opportunities within the organisation for the temporary worker.
Choose when you want to work!
If you want to take time out with the family, study, re-charge the batteries or go on that long haul exotic holiday once a year, temping allows you the flexibility to do just that.
