Temp Pointers

If you're looking for a few pointers on how to be a great temp, look no further:

  • Be on time:   Enough said, but remember this is always the first bit of feedback we receive about you from our clients.
  • You never get a second chance to make a good first impression:  Always choose the suited look and dress appropriately - it's the surest way to impress the clients - and us!
  • Never wait for work to come your way - ask for it:  If you want to make a great impression, when you've finished your tasks, ask for more. Being busy is the surest way to be liked by our clients and receive offers for other roles.
  • When in doubt, act professionally:  Avoid loud or "colloquial" language and refrain from making jokes, being overly familiar with other staff or clients at property inspections. If you're always professional, you'll never make a mistake.
  • If it's personal, keep it private:  Try not to answer any personal calls or text messages and stay away from Facebook and Twitter on the job.
  • Keep everything online above the line:  Even if you see other members of staff using the internet for personal use, always ensure you're online only to complete company tasks.
  • Remember, it's Confidential:  Real estate agents have to deal with the outcomes of the many personal issues which make people move house, and amongst themselves, agents are always highly competitive. That means no matter how juicy the gossip may seem, you should never mention it to anyone else. Don't talk to agents about other places you've worked or discuss anything personal or confidential.
    We've found over the years that this is the most common way that an otherwise great temp can come unstuck.
  • Be committed:  It's not always possible to give a lot of notice when you have to leave a temp role, but the more notice you give the merrier it will make us and our client. The right amount of notice helps us find a replacement and will leave the client with a very good impression of you.
  • Keep us up to date:  It always helps if we know your movements, so if you're about to leave, have been asked to stay or you have found another role somewhere else, please let us know. That way we're always up to date and know when to keep our eyes peeled if you need another role.

Temping is the perfect way to find the right opportunities so remember these pointers and opportunity will knock for you!
