Supertemp strikes again!
Temporary work isn’t always seen in the best light – but we beg to differ.
Our Clients love temps – they solve their immediate problems for them. However, temporary roles (especially short term ones) aren’t always easy to fill. Gone are the days when people could just drop what they were doing and go to work that morning or that afternoon.
So, when we had a Client call this week to say that they had been let down and they needed a lorry unloader NOW we were a little bit dubious about being able to help.
Then, in steps Supertemp to save the day. This particular person doesn’t relish the limelight, so we won’t name them. He already covers two jobs a week for us and when we called to ask if he fancied another day’s work – he jumped at the chance and saved the day, for us & our Client.
So if wearing your underpants on the outside of your tights appeals – why not try a wider range of temporary work – who know, you may find your next career move.
