Temporary Workers

Why should you use them?

Temporary Workers – why should you use them?

As the holidays approach, and with the current circumstances there is a rise in the need for temporary staff due to redundancies, furlough and upcoming holidays.

Busy at peak times?

If your business has peak times where it is busier or is seasonal, temps can be the perfect solution. You may not want to employ a permanent employee when there are only certain times of the year you will need the extra help.

Special Projects

It once was the case that temps were only industrial or low-level admin candidates. However, this is no longer true. Temps can be for any position bringing new skills and perspectives to their role. Ultimately this will improve efficiency within your business.

It may be that you have a new project that requires skills outside of your team’s area of expertise. In this case, bringing a temp into the business to keep things moving for this particular project is the ideal solution.


With temporary staff earning an hourly rate, it can work out more cost-effectively for your budget than paying a permanent salary. It isn’t necessarily a long-term solution. However, if only required for a few weeks or months, it can be the better option cost-wise for you.

Temp to Perm

If you are looking for a permanent employee but require someone urgently, a temp to perm option may be perfect for your business. Hiring a temp is a fantastic way to see if they would be the ideal candidate for your possible permanent role. Hiring the wrong person for your position can be a costly process. Hiring a temp is a sure-fire way to test the waters.

Business Solutions

All in all, there aren’t many cons to hiring temporary staff. If you have trustworthy, honest consultancy doing the hiring, ensuring they are well-vetted, referenced, and ready to go, it really can be a perfect solution all around.
