Why can I benefit from temporary work?
A temporary position can help to enhance both your skillset and CV, which is great news for workers in Yorkshire.
Temporary work is one of the most easily misunderstood pieces of the future of work, but it has a vital role to play.
Temporary work has a plethora of benefits, from enhancing a varied skill set to increased flexibility, and the ability to test the waters before committing to a full-time contract.
There are certainly many positive reasons as to why temporary work could be for you.
You are ultimately in control of your career, and it can be far easier to take career breaks, focus on a hobby or re-train – especially if you are interested by seasonal work.
Skills that you can gain and develop from temporary employment include:
- Time management
- Organisational skills
- Customer service
The above are all soft skills that can be learnt, developed, and improved while working in temporary employment. Skills learnt and improved through temporary employment can then be transferred to enhance performance in other temporary or even, permanent positions.
Additionally, research has shown that employers want to see what soft skills a candidate possesses that complement their technical qualifications such as NVQs.
Employers with temporary positions available are often looking for someone that will fit in quickly with their existing team dynamics and contribute to the task at hand.
People working temporary jobs need to be quick on their feet. You need to be able to adjust quickly to different working environments and teams. You need to be able to communicate effectively with everyone you work with, whilst showing enthusiasm and a positive attitude.
Enhancing your soft skills from a variety of temporary placements will make you more attractive to prospective employers when trying to find a permanent job. And who knows, that last temporary job may even become permanent!
