Is temping for you?

Temping is a great way to gain experience in different industries and in many cases it can lead to an offer for a contract or permanent role. A great way to meet new people, it offers flexibility and can complement your CV with new skills and industry experiences. 

Roles vary from long-term to short, or mid-term holiday cover.  Some roles are called in last minute, and sometimes you won’t know what or where you will be working until the day you are required – that’s just the nature of temping!

Unlike contracting, you’re on our payroll and we take care of all your tax, PAYE and holiday requirements. All you do is complete an online time-sheet each week for client approval.

We encourage all candidates to contact us any time for any support or advice during their assignments with us– that’s what we are here for after all. We consider all of our temporary workers to be part of our team and we feel an important part of our job is to support you on an on-going basis.

We can offer exciting, challenging and rewarding opportunities in some of New Zealand’s leading organisations, so get in touch and enquire about temping with Emergent. 


There is a wide variety of roles available explore here


We don’t believe in pushing people into roles and we don’t just want to fill a space.  We want to fill roles with candidates who are excited about the role. 

We value your open and honest answers around what motivates you, what doesn’t and what your ideal role looks like.
