Looking for a temping job but have questions? Read our FAQ below.

We know going back to the office can feel quite daunting, especially after a long period of time, but did you know that temping is a brilliant way to gain some extra experience and add to your C.V  which will no doubt boost your confidence? 

Why Temp? 

Many Osborne temps decide to try temping because they’ve been out of the workplace for some time.  We find that the majority of temps had taken time out for family or childcare reasons, while others took time to travel or for an extended career break. They subsequently found that temping was a great way to reintroduce themselves back into the workplace. 

Others simply love the flexibility and variety of short and long term contracts while still having the security and support of the Osborne Recruitment Team in the background. 

If this is you and you’re interested in becoming a temp but are not sure where to start, read our FAQ section below which answers some of the most commonly asked questions about temping. 


  • I’ve got a big gap on my C.V and feel it will impact my chances of getting a job, is this true?

Absolutely not. Our dedicated and experienced Recruitment Temp Team are on hand to help you find the right temp job to match your skills. Our team will talk through your C.V, your skills and previous experience to help find a suitable role for you, once one becomes available. The best thing about temping? It’s a great way to add to your C.V and build on your experience, ultimately making you more attractive to potential future employers.

  • How and when will I get paid?

Osborne Temps are paid weekly on a Friday directly into their personal bank account, another benefit of temping – not having to wait until the end of the month for payment.

  • Will I receive training?

Yes, you will receive training on your assignment, however, as part of our Osborne TED (Temporary Employment Development) Programme you will receive an online induction from our Temp Team and opportunities to upskill throughout your assignment, paid for by Osborne*(after a specific period of time) 

Testimonial: I really enjoy temping with Osborne. I have gained a wealth of experience from temping and the experience has really expanded my C.V which is a major plus! Osborne always have temp roles available so I’m never waiting too long for my next role! Temping suits my lifestyle and the Temp team are fantastic to deal with – they always keep me up to date with any new roles.

  • How long can I temp for?

Osborne have a variety of short term and long-term assignments across multiple sectors and industries. Some assignments are week to week, while others run for several months. That’s another perk of temping – the flexibility, and not being tied down to one role. The majority of roles are Monday- Friday, 9am-5pm, however this varies depending on the sector and role.

  • What type of roles are on offer?

  • I’m interested in a permanent role, should I temp?

Yes, many of our temporary assignments lead to permanent roles as temping is a great way to get your foot in the door and demonstrate how you can be a great asset to the organisation you’re currently working in.

  • Will I receive support?

Yes. Every temp has a member of the Osborne Temp team assigned for the duration of the contract. They are on hand to offer support throughout your contract, help with any timesheet or payroll queries, advise about upcoming training opportunities and provide regular check ins to see how you’re getting on in your role.
