Whether you’ve been left short by absences, or you’ve got an important project with an imminent deadline, temps are the answer to all of your staffing woes.

Temps are now becoming a vital part of any industry, with an astonishing 40% rise over the past 10 years. Find out the reasons why temps are becoming so popular below:


Workforce flexibility is becoming increasingly sought after by employers, and using temps is a key element to achieving this. Available to start immediately, temporary workers fill in the gaps during periods of absence, and help give that important boost during busy times and relieves your existing staff from being over-burdened and burned out. Enables you to meet project deadlines and handle extraordinary business demands, thereby increasing your bottom. Agencies can provide skilled and experienced temps short-notice allowing businesses to react quickly to any unforeseen circumstances.

Sourcing Talent

Hiring on a temp-to-perm basis is becoming an increasingly preferred method of sourcing talent, and for a good reason. Temp-to-perm roles allow companies to get to know the person and their ability before permanently hiring them.

According to REC, a bad hire on a £42k salary can cost a business £132k! Hiring on a temp-to-perm basis is a fantastic way to avoid huge costs. There can be other cost-savings too: temp workers are employed by the agency not the company so there isn’t a need to provide benefits or holiday pay. Also, hiring temporary workers through an agency relieves the burden on the company of the recruitment process, which can be lengthy and labour-intensive.

New Skills and Perspectives

Traditionally, companies sought out temporary workers for lower-skilled positions; today temporary workers increasingly include highly-skilled individuals with a wide range of educational backgrounds and work experience. Temps can provide a fresh perspective and new insight into your business, and specialist roles can provide the expertise your business desperately needs.
