In a climate where talk of cuts is on everyone’s lips it may seem foolhardy to be a temporary contractor right now. At Backstop we are well aware of everyone’s anxieties about the job market and are working hard to mitigate this by bringing on new clients in the public and Third Sector.
We also believe that being a temp now is actually a positive decision in a time of great uncertainty. All jobs – temporary and permanent – are at risk from the cuts being planned. In such a climate it makes sense to have experts in your field actively looking for the right role for you, to have an excellent and diverse CV, and to be practiced at being interviewed. By being a temp you keep yourself in tune with what is happening in the wider market and thus are able to react quicker to structural changes that are planned.
We at Backstop will keep you informed of developments in the market over the next years as the move away from statutory services to those provided by the Third Sector begin to kick in. So stick with us and we will help guide you through the era of cuts. As a business we are going to thrive in this market and we can help you do so as well.
Here’s to the future, whatever it brings!
