Recruiting temporary staff could be the answer to your staffing needs, saving you valuable time and minimising impacts to your business performance.

Here we look at THREE key ways in which temp staff can benefit your business:


One of the biggest benefits to hiring temporary staff is the flexibility that it brings. This can allow you to expand & take on new projects. It can also help adapt to sudden business changes such as a surge in new business or sudden departure of an employee.

A recruitment agency such as Prospect, are sure to have the solution, possessing a bank of flexible, suitable candidates that can solve such a dilemma, alleviating any potential impacts, together with a short hiring process.

It is also not always possible to be sure of how long an assignment can be. The flexibility of temporary staff allows you to adjust to this too, with small or even no notice periods to fulfil.

‘Try before you buy’

Taking on temporary staff could also be seen with a view to employing on a more permanent basis. This can be beneficial to both parties, enabling both the employer and candidate to see whether they mutually see things working out long-term, with few ties.

If a candidate feels the opportunity is not for them, or the employer doesn’t feel the candidate is the ideal fit, both are freely able to swiftly look for alternatives with little or no delay.

On a more positive note, this method can also lead to things becoming more permanent. Having invested time in training someone, they fit in well within your team and importantly, you have a need for them…why not hire them!

A new perspective

If you have a temporary need within your business, the new person can also act as a breath of fresh air, offering a new perspective & seeing new ways to improve things. This will add great value to your team.
