Forget the myths about agency work – could this be the right decision for you?
Job seekers are encouraged to view agencies as a source of sustainable and promising work.
Scunthorpe Job Center says many of the myths around it – like the fact that it costs workers and is never full-time – aren’t true.
Temporary agency work can allow people to have flexible hours that meet their needs and can become permanent.
An agency will also never charge you for working for them.
Rather than being a ‘dead end job’, it can also be a stepping stone to develop valuable skills and become a vital part of a business.
