The Benefits of Temporary and Contract Work

August 1, 2019

Why temp? Well why not?! If you’re in Cayman and have the ability to start a role quickly, temporary work can be a great solution for those seeking a permanent job but perhaps finding the search is taking too long. Whilst you may not wish to do it for the long term, it can be a highly rewarding and constructive way to bridge an interim gap between roles.  

Some benefits to YOU

  • Helps you stay motivated during a long job search 
  • Keep some money coming in 
  • Offers flexibility  
  • Avoids CV gaps 
  • Allows you to gain experience across variety of sectors/ environments/ cultures 
  • Learn new skills and systems knowledge  

Not to mention, it’s not uncommon for temporary workers to be given the opportunity to go perm with clients once they can see your hard work and commitment first hand. Doing shorter term work gives you a unique chance to quickly become invaluable to an organisation and it does not have to get in the way of your permanent job search. 

Our temporary workers are a highly valued part of The Agency team and contribute enormously to the success of our clients throughout the Cayman Islands. Temporary or contract employment can last anything from a couple of weeks to a year and you are typically paid on a fixed hourly or daily rate basis. 

We are focused on a range of disciplines from technology, accounting, legal, compliance, HR and business support. We provide our clients access to experienced specialists who can quickly fill needs for many reasons including the following: 

  • Lack of existing skills  
  • Specialist projects 
  • Department being stretched beyond capacity 
  • Maternity cover  
  • Sickness cover  
  • Immediate solution for a sudden departure/the perm search process is taking longer than expected 

As a temporary or contract worker, The Agency is dedicated to providing the best opportunities on island and we look forward to building a strong working relationship with you.
