The lure of full time permanent work offers security, consistency and a regular workplace. Many people consider that this is the only type of employment but sometimes temporary work may also suit your circumstances.

Temp work lets you try before you buy also, you can test out the environment, location, distance, type of work and team before you commit to a role. It’s a good idea to make it clear that you are looking for temp to perm work so that you can be placed in roles that may lead to a permanent role.

If you have a set period of time available you can also consider a fixed term contract which can give you the best of both worlds, some consistency and the ability to move onto another project in the future.
