Back to school? Back to work?

Posted on | Posted in Recruitment, Temping

We may be getting a bit more Summer weather-wise here in Hampshire, but according to the shops it’s “Back to School” time already.  That means parents & grandparents will be starting to have a little more time on their hands.

That’s great news for recruiters like us who have part time & flexible working jobs in Basingstoke to fill.   Part time people are extremely valuable to small & medium sized businesses.  They not only offer the employer flexibility, but
many studies show that part time workers tend to be happier in their work, have less time off sick and feel less stress in the workplace.

Temporary work can be a great way to try out part time work in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.  You choose what hours & which days you work.  You can get great job satisfaction from going into a company, solving their problem – be it answering phones, packing an order or completing a project – and then moving on.

So, if you are suffering from empty nest syndrome this Autumn, give us a call – we’d love to speak to you about part time & temporary work.
