Getting seasonal Job Ready with Futures

28th October, 2019 Read time: Two minutes

Take advantage of seasonal and temporary jobs to boost your CV and get into work.

Many companies have started advertising temporary vacancies for the Christmas and New Year period. There’s a huge variety of work available, whether you’re looking to work in a customer-facing role, such as those in retail or food and drink, or prefer something behind-the-scenes, like warehouse work or driving.

Seasonal jobs are a great option for people at all stages of life, as they offer an opportunity to get to know the environment and learn new skills to take your job search further in the new year. Some employers offer longer-term contracts to seasonal staff who really impress during a temporary contract, so a Christmas job may even be the door to long-term employment.

Temporary roles can be a good choice for those who have recently been made redundant and who are looking for a short-term solution, as well as for younger people who may be looking to boost their CV and earn some extra spending money at the same time. Whatever the reasons behind your interest in seasonal opportunities, we can help you to get ready to secure that role.
