Christmas Temping: The Flexible Way To Work Between Semesters

Apply Now

The first semester after summer is always an eventful one. There’s timetable changes, new people, and plenty of fun things to spend your money on – especially now restrictions have eased! But before you can splash the cash, you’ve got to earn it, and that’s where hap comes in.

Whether you’re a first or a final year student, you don’t need us to tell you that any money earned over the Christmas period will always come in handy. And the best thing about our work is that each role is flexible, so it won’t interrupt your studies.

Here, we share the many benefits of Christmas temping, and put a spotlight on the opportunities available with hap. 

Work that suits you

Going direct to an employer to ask for a temporary role comes with it’s barriers, especially when you’re juggling college or university. hap’s solution smooths the way, allowing you to earn and study in harmony. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of flexible working:

Fewer commitments

During the run up to Christmas, many students follow the same frantic routine: handing out endless CVs to employers in the hope of securing the ideal slot. But sometimes, your study commitments make it hard to get accepted.

All our roles are temporary, but that doesn’t mean you have to fulfil a short-term contract when you sign up. Hop in and out whenever you please. Just be sure to complete the shifts you commit to and we’ll take it from there. Everyone’s happy! 

Earn around your studies

While the winter break may be quiet in terms of seminars, lectures and classes, that doesn’t mean your studying has stopped. Preparation for January exams and post-Christmas deadlines can be relentless, so if you’re going to earn, it needs to be on your terms.

Registering with hap allows you to pick and choose from a variety of roles and industries, and take shifts that are convenient to you. So, instead of your work dictating your studies, your studies can dictate your work.

Save for next summer

Who doesn’t love an early morning airport visit? We’ve missed them too. Yet even for those who’ve managed to get away over the last 18 months, it hasn’t been without complications. Now, we’re all longing for summer 2022. But holidays don’t pay for themselves!
