Existing Candidates: Looking For Something More Permanent?
Article Date: 16-10-2019
Our support workers are the heart and soul of Estio Healthcare, you’re the face of our brand and the voice of our organisation. However, we offer a lot more than temp positions alone. Estio Healthcare have a wide range of temp-to-perm roles available for the taking.
For those of you that aren’t aware, The Mix state that “Temp-to-perm is slang for work which is temporary, but could lead to a permanent contract. This type of work is often offered by recruitment agencies. A company will instruct the agency to find a worker to fill a role temporarily, with an eye to possibly making them permanent if they are suitable.”
From an employee’s point of view, the employers are typically seen as the people getting the benefits out of temp-to-perm roles. However, there’s advantages to you from temp-to-perms that you might not have considered.
In temp-to-perm roles, you’ll be trained on the job if you’re dealing with areas that you’re not too strong or familiar with. You’re essentially gaining free transferable skills that you can add onto your CV for work experience, this makes your applications to other employers more appealing.
Assess the Role
So, let’s say you get the temp-to-perm that you’ve applied for. Congrats! Now’s your opportunity to scout out what you like and perhaps dislike about the working environment you’re in. After all, you haven’t yet signed a permanent contract so if you’ve decided that this role isn’t the fit for you, there’s always other roles at Estio.
Let’s remember you’re not getting yourself into anything too serious at first, so for all the indecisive people out there, this is a great way to try out different workplaces until you find the right one. You haven’t promised an employer that you’re going to stay on – so you don’t have to feel awkward about leaving to find the place to suit you.
