When we chat to candidates looking for temporary jobs in London, our recruitment consultants are often asked how long it will take the individual to find a job. There’s no standard answer, but we can explain what’s going on so you can make it work for you.
Why do temp work in London?
It’s important that you consider why you want to do temping in London. What are you hoping to get out of it? If you know the answer to this, then your recruitment consultant will be more able to match you to the right position.
Get the basics in order
It’s absolutely fine to come to us looking for temporary jobs in London without having done any real preparation. But you won’t be walking straight in to a job. We will, however, give you more information on what you need to do.
To be considered for positions immediately, you’ll need to have your CV in excellent order. If you’re not sure how to do this, you can book in to our Wait4Work lounge and make use of our computer facilities. You can also follow these CV writing tips.
You will also need to register as a candidate with us. You can register as a candidate online or by calling us on 020 7870 7177. To complete the registration process, we explain how temping in London through Love Success works, including things like expected dress code.
Your first time temping in London
Once registration has taken place, we’ll hopefully be able to match you with suitable temporary jobs very soon.
We strongly encourage temps to consider each placement as a chance to make a good impression. If we receive good feedback, then the client may ask for you again, and we’ll be more likely to recommend you to another client in the future. So even if the first role isn’t your most ideal one, treat it well.
Once you’ve had a few successful placements, you’ll discover that opportunities expand and you can be more selective.
We also advise that you take the time to keep your recruitment consultant informed about what you’ve liked and what you haven’t. You should let them know about your level of flexibility and your goals. That way, you’ll be able to get the most from a positive working relationship.
It’s important that you stick with one recruitment agency if you’re doing temporary jobs in London. This way your holiday entitlement will build up, and you’ll benefit from consistency and personal knowledge.
Think about the kind of temp you’ll be
If you want to get the most out of temping in London, then you’ll need to give a little thought to the type of temp you want to be. Certain characteristics are highly valued in temps. These include flexibility, resourcefulness, being a quick learner, friendliness, good presentation, punctuality, accuracy, and initiative.
