Why should you take on a temp role?
For the individuals, a temporary role is an opportunity to develop some important skills and experience which may otherwise be difficult or take a long time to come by.
If you are uncertain about what type of role you are after or are looking to explore different options, this is also the perfect chance for you to test it out. It's a great way to try something for a short period of time without the long term commitment.
The benefits flow both ways – committed temporary candidates are eager to please and work hard and an employer will get considerable output from such an engaged temporary employee.
In many instances, permanent positions are on the horizon and a temp or contract worker who has worked hard and proved themselves whilst making good connections internally gives themselves every chance of being extended or indeed made permanent.
