Back to school, back to work – temping and part time jobs in Basingstoke

Posted on | Posted in Recruitment, Temping

Summer came in like a lion and fizzled out like a camp fire made out of damp wood.  It appears that Autumn is upon us already. It definitely has its advantages other than the chance to kick our way through oceans of leaves & smell the woodsmoke of bonfires; it’s often the time to think about “what next”.

If you’re a parent or grandparent, when the little darlings head back to the classroom it can suddenly feel like there are a lot more hours in the day. Or maybe your kids are flying the nest for university and you’re thinking it’s time to try something new, something just for you. As a local recruitment agency in Basing View, Wote Street People have flexible and part time jobs in Basingstoke that could be the new challenge you’re looking for.

Part-time roles can offer flexibility that fit in around other commitments, especially if you have child/parent care commitments on some days but not on others.

It might surprise you to learn that many employers are especially keen on part-time workers because it can often mean a better balance of resources, more flexibility and less sick leave.

Perhaps if you’re just easing back into the job market after a career break, or need school holidays off, temporary work in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas could also be a really exciting prospect for you.

Temp work often means you will be employed to complete a specific task or project, such as introducing a new business process, getting a mailing campaign dispatched, or being part of organising an event. Or you might be needed to cover an existing role due to holiday or maternity leave. Whichever it is, you’ll be a superhero – flying in, fixing the problem and flying out again.

Many of our temporary candidates tell us that they come away from short-term contracts buzzing with that rewarding feeling that comes from moving a project to the next stage, tackling a problem, or just helping to keep business running as usual. Just as many tell us that they find the variety of moving around local businesses refreshing and a wonderful way to expand their knowledge and meet some lovely people.

Has back to school season inspired you to try something new? We’d love to speak to you about temporary and part time work in Basingstoke and surrounding areas.

Wote Street People can help you get a job, call us on 01256 799127 or email recruit@wotestreetpeople.co.uk to find out more.
