It can feel like a bit of a gamble when you look for temporary work in London. There’s a huge amount of variety within temp jobs in London, even when they are a similar type such as PA and EA roles. Of course, there’s variety between temporary jobs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find the ideal role for you. Unfortunately, we’ve found that many recruitment agencies in London make the process complicated and work against the candidate. Here’s what you should look out for:
The right kind of work: your niche
The biggest mistake we see is that candidates looking for temp work in London think all London recruitment agencies are the same and will find them similar types of work. This isn’t the case at all. Generalised recruitment agencies often see candidates as little more than a means of filling whatever spot they have. So you could be offered anything from care work to cleaning.
Instead, you need to find recruitment agencies in London that are dedicated to your expertise. At Love Success, we specialise in office support jobs and PA roles. This means that employers come to us because they know we have candidates with relevant experience and skills. You’ll stand a greater chance of finding rewarding positions that suit you if you choose a specialised London recruitment agency.
The right recruitment agencies in London: your people
When you’ve found a recruitment agency that specialises in your area, you need to find out how successful they are at helping people like you to find the temping jobs they really want. Your first port of call is their website. Have a look around and check out their current job listings for temporary roles. They will most likely have many temping positions that aren’t on the website, but it’s a good way of seeing whether you like the feel of this agency.
The right timing for work: your schedule
Consider what you are actually looking for in terms of time commitment and flexibility. Be honest and upfront about this from the start. This way, you’ll find the right temp position for you.
Finding work in practice
With the groundwork done, you have a few different options. Your next step should be to submit your CV. Browse and potentially apply for current temporary jobs in London.
