Why temping is more than just a temporary solution with deverellsmith.

Back to insights

​We were first approached in 2018 by a Business Communications graduate from the southeast, a single parent eager to find a flexible work opportunity that fitted their lifestyle. The candidate was extremely driven, had a passion for property and was eager to get back into a job that contributed to their long-term career goals.

​Using deverellsmith’s temp service, the candidate was able to earn a position at several respectable companies without having to commit to a permanent opportunity which would have impacted their outside work responsibilities. The role offered flexible working, they could work where and when they chose, all whilst gaining crucial experience in a field that they loved. Through the temp avenue, they were able to trial different employers that aligned with their values, needs and morals.

Tess Amigoni, Principal Consultant – New Homes (Home Counties and southeast), facilitated each assignment the candidate was placed on which finally resulted in a permanent offer by one of the candidate’s employers.  Their work ethic, positive attitude and skillset shone through, and the temp platform enabled them to achieve a full-time role when the time was right.

The candidate commented “‘My previous role was not working for me as I’d just had a baby. I was torn on what to do, until a friend suggested temping. I’ve worked with Tess Amigoni for over two years, and she has literally been a godsend – providing opportunities that worked around me, that also highlighted my core strengths. When you work with people that are passionate about what they do; they go above and beyond your expectations because they genuinely care about you. Long story short: it was the best decision I had made.”

Tess Amigoni commented “Success stories like these are why I do what I do – using my network and relationships with New Homes developers across the Home Counties, to build careers and dynamic teams. I’ve been working with this candidate for 3 years and have watched them grow as a person and a sales professional. I’m super proud of what they’ve achieved!”
