Santa needs his Elves early

Posted on | Posted in Flexible working, Temping

I don’t know about you, but it seems the minute the mid-Summer Solstice has happened we start thinking about Christmas.  Who’s going where and when.  Who wants what, who doesn’t want anything and who is going hide in their bedroom all day.

You may think this is all a bit early.  However, many of our Clients are already getting Christmas stock prepared to go out to the retail industry, just look at John Lewis.  That’s when we begin to rely heavily on our local superheroes – our temporary workers.

We need everything from packers to waiting staff, from lorry unloaders to kitchen porters.  All play their important part in gearing up for the festive season.

The beauty of temp work is that it really can fit round your family or other commitments.  You choose when you work.  There is no obligation to accept the work, it’s genuine flexible work, without being tied to a zero hours contract.

You are paid weekly, accrue holiday pay and can even be enrolled into our Auto Enrolment Pension Scheme.

It may just be the ideal way to get some much-needed cash together for Christmas.
