The Benefits of Temping

I just wanted to say thank you team Cameo! You have all been so great over the last three years whilst I have completed my degree. I have enjoyed the various roles you have organised for me and especially grateful for you finding me such a well-suited part time role that slotted into my studies perfectly! I will continue to sing Cameo's praises to everyone that I hear is looking for new opportunities! And should I ever be looking for a new role in the future, I will know exactly where to come!!” March 2021

What is a temporary worker?

A temporary worker is an employee who works for a company for a defined, short-term period, this could be to act as a substitute for a permanent employee on leave, or help with a short-term project at the company or potentially as an open-ended position which may lead to permanent employment (temp to perm). Many temporary workers also work on a seasonal basis, providing help during busy periods. For example, a seasonal business may  hire temporary employees to cover business peaks.

This can be a day by day, week by week, or longer term opportunity.

Working as temporary worker can be so beneficial, and rewarding, as a Cameo temp you can be assured you will be looked after every step of the way!
