Casual and temporary roles offer you the freedom & flexibility to work when & where you want
Temporary and casual roles are a perfect career fit for many people including parents who like to take school holidays off, students wanting full-time work during breaks, and job seekers who only want to work odd days each week, need full-time work between roles, are saving for a holiday or renovation, or simply prefer flexibility.
While previous office experience and WP skills are required to temp, once you start working you may have the opportunity to learn new systems, build confidence, try different roles you may never knew existed, gain exposure to different companies and environments, and meet new people - all while making friends and referees along the way.
Many of our temps are often extended in their roles (which they enjoy!), are requested back and offered permanent positions. In fact, many local employers prefer to take someone on in a temporary-to-permanent arrangement, which provides a more in-depth and convenient way for them to decide whether they're a good fit for the role and for the candidate to decide whether they would like to continue as a permanent employee.
To become one of our valued temps, simply click the Register with us! tab at the top right of the screen. We will contact you shortly afterwards to arrange an interview, an online WP skills test and to explain the required paperwork including our employee contract, banking and superannuation information requirements, emergency contacts and WH&S protocols.
