We are excited to welcome Kitty to Impact HQ! With a strong career background, Kitty is a real people person and the newest team member in our temp division and is ready to start matching you with your next role!
I come from a really varied background! I have about seven years of training experience which spans hospitality training, learning & development coordination and teaching English as a foreign language.
I’ve also worked many years in the hospitality industry, working with people, developing empathy, and practising kindness. Mostly I’ve worked with people from all walks of life, getting to know them, finding out what they need, and then tailoring experiences to suit them.
I chose Impact for a couple of reasons, but mostly I felt like we were a great fit for each other. I was looking for an excellent team that would nurture my professional growth, exist within a creative space, and care about their place in the world. Impact was looking for a passionate person, who cares about people, and is a nerd about the details. So far it seems like a match made in Heaven!
The cherry on top of the cake is of course the people Impact works with. I am so grateful to be working with some of the leading creative companies in the industry, as well as the incredible candidates who we introduce them to.
I’ve loved it. My team has really paced the training to suit my learning needs and I can eagerly see what’s next to come! I’ve been blown away by our Senior Team’s focus on mentorship and their presence within the workspace.
I cannot overstate how friendly, welcoming, and supportive the environment at Impact is. All the team have gone out of their way to bring me into the fold, and even within my first week, I could see how much they cared about my professional development and my personal wellbeing. There’s also a good mix of fun in there, of course, I’m already grateful for the great music and after-work chats.
Working on the temp desk, my main goal is to match people to a role that enhances their life. Whether it’s a benefit to their personal life because of the flexibility it offers or whether it’s an advancement in their professional life because it’s going to further their career.
Taking a temporary job lets you try new things without the long-term commitment a regular, full-time job requires. You are in control of your career, so here are just some of the benefits of stepping into temporary roles.
One of the most beneficial factors of temporary work is that it can allow you to have a flexible schedule. You aren’t tied to a permanent position, making it great for students, and easier to move on should another opportunity arise.
Temping across multiple positions allows you to try out a variety of industries, from Architectural firms to TV Production, the possibilities are endless! Temping can give you a taste of many different industries and work situations, and you can find what is the best fit for you before you commit to long-term permanent work.
Temporary work can help build a variety of contacts across multiple companies. When looking at a permanent role, the right role maybe with a previous organisation you’ve temped for. This could be a huge benefit for your application, as having an internal contact, or external connected contact makes for quick internal referencing.
Candidate, Victoria Watts
I have been temping with Impact on and off for the last three years while I complete my degree, and have always felt so looked after by the girls on the team! They work hard to place me in assignments that suit me, and they keep me up to date with anything that comes in that they think I might be interested in and suitable for. Once placed, the team stay in contact to make sure I’m happy and that everything is going ok, and they are always available for support if needed. They have been super flexible and accommodating with my needs as a temp and made the whole experience an absolute pleasure!
