Christmas Temp Roles
Yes it’s still a bit soon to be talking about Christmas but now is the time to start thinking about Christmas temp jobs. It is the busiest time of the year for many businesses and if you haven’t started applying for roles yet then now is the time. Here some guidance into what’s available…
An obvious place to search for a temporary job is: Retail. On average most shops have an increase of 30% more customers at Christmas time. Many of the big retailers are now advertising for their vacancies so don’t hesitate and send your CV directly to them.
The hospitality industry is also hectic at Christmas. Thirsty, hungry shoppers pack the nearest bars and restaurants. The popular restaurants have had most of their Christmas bookings since the Summer. Also, hotels and venues will have an increase in guests and Christmas parties will also be hosted there.
Online shopping has become increasingly popular over the last decade and many places will guarantee a delivery before Christmas. This means every kind of job role becomes available in warehouses at this super busy time. You will find vacancies for roles in: call centres, order picking/packing, forklift drivers and delivery drivers. Contact us at Earl Street Employment Consultants for any warehouse vacancies.
The best temp role out there? Santa Claus!! Every shopping mall and event throughout the country will have Santa as their special guest. There will also be vacancies for Mrs. Claus and elves (possibly some snowmen). If events/acting is your thing this could be the perfect opportunity, and you’re practically guaranteed to make the nice list!
Temp roles can be a fantastic opportunity to open the door to a permanent job, good luck!
