FAQs

Q: What defines temp working?

Temp work is determined by a contract, with a start and end date. ‘Temping’ is another word for contract jobs or definite jobs.

In some cases, temping may involve the outsourcing of employees from the agency to a client. This means that the employees will be employed by the temping agency, but they will be working at the premises of a specific client.

Temping has been around for many years, although recently it has flourished in a number of industries, primarily those that are susceptible to fluctuation of sales, due to volatility of the market or seasonal circumstances. In the more recent economic crisis, organisations are seeking ways and means to minimise their fixed costs and opt for a more variable cost model, so as to positively influence their bottom line.

In Malta, temping is still quite a new concept, however it has the ability to greatly assist organisations, maximise opportunities for interested candidates in a number of positions and help to achieve the ideal work/life balance we all crave.

Q: What roles does it pertain to?

In the past, temping might have been associated with secretarial posts and admin. Today temp roles are vast and extensive and cover anything from consultancy, project management, event organising, IT, , sales and marketing, finance , operations, and also management.

Since the time period (start and end) is what defines a temp job, often there is need for any extra pair of hands or for an expert to join the team on a particular subject for a period of time, which could be a few weeks, a few months or even a few years.  This is becoming increasingly popular with companies that work on specific projects that stop on the completion date.

Q: Why would someone wish to apply for a temp role and not an indefinite role?

Traditionally indefinite jobs would be the ultimate objective for candidates seeking to find work or start their career.

However, in a fast paced and dynamic business environment, nothing can really be considered indefinite or guaranteed. In certain industries, there is an obvious saturation of posts. The job market is dictated by the demand and supply of labour, and this is constantly evolving. Many University graduates are finding it hard to find indefinite jobs in the positions they are interested in. In situations where there is slow labour turnover, or an aging workforce or very specialised and niche posts, it becomes difficult for new openings to emerge.

Those looking to temp, could also be people who have some free time on their hands such as teachers who wish to make some extra money during the summer months, or pensioners who wish to do the odd job on the side. It could also be the case of new mothers, who wish to allocate a few hours of work a week, without giving the full time commitment required from  permanent jobs. Furthermore, a temp role could be the ideal stepping stone for someone wishing to learn more about a particular industry without committing for the long haul.  It also serves as the ideal time for candidates to prove their worth, encouraging organisations to then take them on indefinitely once the temp contract expires.

Q: Are there any differing rights between an indefinite contract and a definite contract?

All statuatory rights for temp workers are given pro rata, based on the number of hours they will work. This means that temp workers and indefinite workers have the same pay, rights and responsibilities, including income tax, government bonus, leave and sick leave.

In a nutshell, nowadays there is absolutely no difference (where statutory rights and obligations are concerned) between full time employment and temping.

Q: Who is tempsinmalta.com?

tempsinmalta.com is a recently launched specialist agency, whose primary objective is to bridge the gap between the supply and demand of temp work in Malta.

This website reaches out to organisations enabling them to upload their temp vacancies free of charge, and at the same time to candidates to upload their CVs and availability onto the system. With this information, the system generates automated ‘matches’ to both parties, instantly generating leads to entice the users. These matches will be followed up personally by our consultant, who will verify the validity of these matches, confirm availability of the candidate and proceed to set up interviews and secure placement accordingly.

Tempsinmalta.com will offer expert advice in the selection and recruitment process, as well as offering additional services over and above the typical recruiter.

Such services include, for example, the hiring of the temp worker on behalf of the organisation, referred to as Outsourcing on this site, with subsequent handling of payroll and other employee duties. In these cases, the organisation simply enjoys the placing of the temp workers as per their needs, and our agency will also provide replacements should the need arise. Additional services include remote office set-up, should the employee be asked to work off site for a particular reason or from home. Tempsinmalta.com is a partnership between M. Demajo Group and Quad Consultancy.
