The Beauty Of Temping

The Beauty of ‘Temping’!

As a widely growing popular solution for both candidates & clients alike – here’s the ‘WhoWhatWhereWhen & Why’ into the potential perfect employment solution.


  • Who? – Candidates want to gain exposure across range throughout the NI Market and temping caters for that option. Honeycomb is working with a wide array of fantastic & exciting clients that are situated around Northern Ireland. Honeycomb is proud to be brand ambassadors for these organisations.
  • What? – Temping can allow candidates to build on /substantiate in their skillset. From ‘role title’ differentiation to ‘systems usage’ & project opportunities. A temporary role can often also lead to CPD opportunities/extension throughout other areas/departments with an employer.
  • Where? – Location is the key & as ‘work-life balance’ has to suit your travel preferences; temping can allow you a trial basis for a location to see if it all adds up for you!
  • When? Duration or longevity? Often candidates find that with their future plans/ commitments (whether it be academic/ travel or family orientated); temping can provide that solution and if both parties are happy, it can often lead to extension or transition to permanent if viable for you!
  • Why?  to recap the benefits:
    • Interim solution (in between perm roles)
    • Fast and effective turnaround
    • Sheer enjoyment of versatility
    • Competitive hourly rates (often when used to gain traction)
    • CPD/ skillset building / systems usage
    • Gateway opportunity into a corporate.
    • Flexibility in longevity
    • Exposure to a range of environments; culture & dynamic.
    • Navigation around job roles/titles if looking to explore extent of certain job duties
    • Widen your search – including locality of roles for that work life balance
    • Try before you buy – often an onboarding experience if both parties happen and room for extension/ transition to permanent!
    • Have another person (your recruitment consultant) to lean on and clarify any work-related queries throughout an assignment.
