How to make a success of long-term temping in London

Posted on Friday, November 18, 2022 by Peter SNo comments

Temping in London is often varied and exciting, with new positions to look forward to each week or month. However, Love Success also has long-term temping positions available, and we spoke to Sukey to find out how she is making her long-term temping role a success – take a look at what she told us!

Why did you look for a long-term temping position?

After the birth of my daughter, I was keen to re-enter the workforce but needed a role that would fit with my parenting role. I wanted to get a job in administration but had no experience, so I started to look for temping jobs to help me gather the experience I needed. I was lucky to be offered a long-term temporary position with a company in the city, not too far from home, and I've not looked back.

What steps did you take to settle in?

Getting a long-term position means that you can take the time to get to know the ways things are done as well as getting to know the people. I made it my mission to find out all the required processes and follow them so that my work wasn't a burden on any of the managers checking it. I also made a big effort to get to know people and accepted invites to drinks and lunches so that I could become part of the team.

What does each day look like?

I get up each morning and drop my daughter off at childcare before heading into the office at 8 am. I start by checking any urgent admin tasks assigned to me and work on completing and submitting them before continuing with any longer-term tasks I have to do. I often get asked to take minutes for meetings and handle calls from clients too. I love the variety as it keeps me busy and makes each day go really fast. I finish at 4 pm, pick up my daughter, and make dinner.

What advice would you give someone taking on a long-term temp role?

The best advice I have is to take the time to get to know people and work hard to become part of the team, as you will be there for a while! It's also a good idea to check out the policies and procedures for the company so that you can be sure that your work aligns with your employer's expectations.
