The Benefits of Temporary Work: Debunking Myths and Highlighting Advantages image
The Benefits of Temporary Work: Debunking Myths and Highlighting Advantages

​ Temporary work often gets a bad rap, but the reality is quite different. In this blog, we will explore the true benefits of temporary work and dispel some common myths, with a focus on how it can be a smart career move for candidates!​What is Temporary Work?Temporary work involves employment for a specific period, ranging from a few days to several months. These roles are often facilitated by staffing agencies and can cover various industries and positions.​Advantages of Temporary Work ​Flexibility and VarietyOne of the biggest advantages of temporary work is the flexibility it offers. Temporary roles allow you to choose assignments that fit your schedule, providing a balance between work and personal life. For instance, you can take on a three-month project and then take a month off if you need it without the long-term commitment required in permanent positions. ​Additionally, temp jobs often provide exposure to different industries and roles, which can help you diversify your skills and experience. This is particularly beneficial for those who are early in their careers or looking to make a career change. As of March 2023, there were approximately 1.44 million temporary workers in the UK, highlighting the significant role that temporary employment plays in the labour market. ​Pathway to Permanent EmploymentMany companies use temporary positions as a way to evaluate potential employees before offering permanent roles. This approach, often referred to as "temp-to-perm," allows employers to assess a candidate's fit within the company culture and their performance on the job. For candidates, it provides an opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities and secure a permanent role. Notably, temporary work can be a stepping stone to permanent employment in various sectors, including IT, healthcare, and finance. In fact, a survey found that 70% of employers hire temporary workers to fill permanent positions. ​Skill Development and NetworkingTemporary roles often require you to adapt quickly and learn new skills. This can be a valuable addition to your CV, showing potential employers your ability to handle diverse tasks and environments. For example, you might work in a marketing role one month and a project management position the next, each offering different experiences and skills. ​Furthermore, temporary work allows you to expand your professional network. Each new assignment introduces you to new colleagues and industry contacts, which can be beneficial for future job searches. Building a strong network is crucial in today’s job market, and temporary work provides ample opportunities to connect with professionals across various sectors.​Financial StabilityContrary to popular belief, temporary work can offer financial stability. Temporary roles often come with competitive pay rates, and in some cases, they might even offer higher hourly wages compared to permanent positions to compensate for the lack of long-term job security. Additionally, reputable staffing agencies, like Thrive, ensure that temporary workers receive their pay promptly and have access to necessary employment benefits.​Dispelling Common Myths​Myth 1: Temporary Jobs Are Low-SkillWhile some temporary jobs may be entry-level, many require specific skills and expertise. Temporary roles are available in a wide range of fields, including (but not limited to) IT, healthcare, finance, and engineering, offering opportunities for professionals at all levels. For example, a temporary IT consultant role might require advanced technical skills and several years of experience.​Myth 2: Temporary Work Is UnstableWhile temporary work is, by definition, not permanent, it doesn't mean it's unstable. Many industries rely on temporary workers to meet seasonal demands or project-based work. Temporary workers can often find continuous employment through agencies that place them in successive roles. In fact, Career Moves Group reports a stable and increasing demand for temporary workers across various sectors in the UK. ​Myth 3: Temporary Workers Are Treated PoorlyAgain, reputable staffing agencies and employers value their temporary workers and provide fair wages, benefits, and safe working conditions. It’s important to choose a trusted agency to ensure you are treated well. We know that we are certainly committed to worker welfare, ensuring that all placements meet stringent standards for pay and working conditions! ​Discover the Opportunities with Temporary Work ​Temporary work offers numerous benefits, including flexibility, skill development, financial stability, and potential pathways to permanent employment.

Spring Into Action: Renewing Your Career Goals This Easter image
Spring Into Action: Renewing Your Career Goals This Easter

As we slowly bid farewell to the winter chill and welcome the vibrant hues of spring, now is the perfect time for rejuvenation—not just in nature but in our professional lives, too! Just as spring symbolises new beginnings, it offers an ideal moment for us to spring into action, revisiting and revitalising our career goals. In the spirit of this season, why not reflect on how your year has been shaping up thus far?The first quarter of 2024 has whisked by, and with Easter upon us, it's a great checkpoint to see how our New Year's resolutions (see this blog) and career objectives are faring. Are you closer to where you envisioned yourself? Have unforeseen challenges redirected your path? Or perhaps you're right on track, steadily advancing towards your goals. Regardless of where you stand, now is a critical time to assess and adjust (where necessary).​Reflecting on progress This season, take a leaf from nature's book. Just as a gardener assesses their spring blooms, take time to reflect on your professional growth. Celebrate the successes, no matter how small, and analyse the setbacks with a constructive lens. This exercise isn't just about ticking off achievements; it's about understanding the journey and learning from each step. It's a known fact that regular reflection and acknowledgement of ‘small wins’ can significantly boost morale and productivity, as highlighted in a study by Harvard Business School.​Realigning with your vision As spring brings clarity and freshness, reassess your career vision. Does it still align with your personal and professional aspirations? Sometimes, as we navigate our career path, our destination might shift slightly. That’s perfectly normal. It’s essential to ensure that your goals are still relevant and meaningful to you. According to a survey by LinkedIn, over 80% of professionals feel more fulfilled when they believe their work aligns with their personal values and goals.​Setting SMART goals Speaking of goals, our New Year's advice about SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound) goals is as relevant now as it was then. Use this springtime momentum to redefine or fine-tune your objectives. Ensure that they are clear and achievable, and set realistic timelines for accomplishing them. Research has consistently shown that SMART goals significantly increase the chances of success by providing clear direction and measurable milestones.​Embracing growth and learning The vibrancy of spring is a reminder to embrace growth and continuous learning. Look for (or continue to look for) opportunities to acquire new skills or deepen your expertise. This might mean attending workshops, enrolling in online courses, or simply dedicating time to read and research in your field. Remember, growth often happens outside of our comfort zones. This proactive approach not only enhances your current skill set but also uniquely positions you for advancement and progression opportunities. ​Staying adaptable and resilient Just as the weather in spring can be unpredictable, so can our career paths. Stay adaptable and open to change. This flexibility can not only help you navigate unexpected challenges but also open doors to new opportunities. Adaptability has been identified as a key skill for career advancement in a rapidly evolving job market, as reported by the World Economic Forum.​​Embrace the season of growth As we continue through 2024, let this spring be a time of renewed energy and focus in your career. Revisit your goals, align them with your core values, and take actionable steps toward achieving them. Embrace the longer days and the promise of new beginnings as catalysts for your professional growth. Let's make 2024 a year of significant achievements and personal fulfilment in our careers. Happy Easter and a joyous, productive spring to all!

Fall in love with your dream job this Valentine's Day image
Fall in love with your dream job this Valentine's Day

​This Valentine's Day, let's talk about a different kind of matchmaking – one that might not involve heart-shaped chocolates or bouquets of roses but is just as important for your heart's contentment: finding your perfect job!​As cupids of the corporate world, we know the thrill of a new job when you find a role that clicks with your skills and aspirations. The exhilaration, the possibilities, the sense of a new beginning – it's all there.​So, this February, why not breathe in the possibility of a new career adventure? Let Thrive set you up on a professional blind date that could lead to your happily ever after…in the workplace!​The Heart of Job Satisfaction Job satisfaction transcends the mere earning of a paycheque. It's about the joy of feeling valued, the excitement of engaging in work you love, and the eagerness to start each new day. Consider this - only a mere 17% of British workers express true love for their job, often hindered by feelings of being undervalued and a lack of respect from management. This reveals a significant gap in job satisfaction, underlining the need for roles where employees are not just compensated but are genuinely appreciated, challenged, and rewarded.Such an environment mirrors the growth and support one may expect in a thriving relationship, transforming work from a mundane task to an integral part of one's life journey.​Work-Life Balance: The Harmony of a Healthy Relationship Imagine a relationship that consumes every moment of your day - overwhelming, isn't it? Similarly, your job should not overshadow your personal life - a healthy work-life balance thrives on mutual respect for personal space and time. Recent insights indicate a worrying trend in the UK, where workers increasingly perceive their roles as merely transactional, driven by necessity rather than fulfilment. There has been a noticeable decline in employees willing to exert extra effort, dropping from 57% in 2019 to 51% in 2023.This shift underscores the importance of finding a job that not only respects your personal time but also aligns with your values, empowering you to pursue passions and interests that lie beyond the office walls.​Did You Know: Happy Workers are More Productive Studies show that happy & content employees can be up to 20% more productive than their dissatisfied counterparts. However, a concerning trend in the UK has emerged, revealing one of the lowest levels of employee engagement in Europe. A mere 13% of European workers report feeling engaged at work, with stress and dissatisfaction prevalent among UK professionals – 38% experience daily stress, and 19% report feelings of anger in their workplace. This data not only highlights the need for job satisfaction but also underscores the transformative power of happiness in the workplace. Happy employees, much like partners in a loving relationship, are inspired to be creative, proactive, and committed, ultimately leading to both personal and organisational success.​Embrace a Job You Love with Thrive This Valentine's Day, it's time to reflect on your career and ask yourself if you're truly in a fulfilling relationship with your job. At Thrive, we specialise in a unique kind of matchmaking, aligning your skills, passions, and career aspirations with the ideal employer. Your dream job might just be out there waiting for you to swipe right. Let Thrive be your guide in making this Valentine's Day the start of an exciting new journey in your career, helping you find a job that not only satisfies but truly sets your heart aflutter.
