Reliable and accurate pay

Our Search Associates are all entitled to a fair wage, employer-contributed pension, paid holidays and sick pay. Our temporary workforce is specialist and experienced, so can often command a higher pay grade than more general workers in the sector. You can also take advantage of Search’s industry contacts and network, so opportunities to work for well-established clients in the industry are common.

For anyone who is currently self-employed and thinking through their options ahead of April’s  IR35 changes, working as a Search Associate will mean you won’t need to process your own tax and NI and you’re guaranteed to be working within the law and in line with HMRC guidelines.

Work-life balance

Temping is a great way to achieve that elusive work-life balance. It can allow you the flexibility to have breaks between contracts – allowing you the option to spend time with family during the school holidays, or take longer breaks to travel. But temping doesn’t necessarily have to mean gaps in your employment. Our specialist consultants can work with you to ensure longer-term placements, or back-to-back temp assignments with a variety of employers.


Temping is a great option if you’re not quite sure of the direction you want to take your career. It allows you the flexibility to try a variety of roles and is a great way of getting lots of experience under your belt. And if you have recently left education, or are returning to work after a career break, temping can be an ideal way to gain much valued experience and insight into the type of work you are most suited to.
