Meet the brains behind Temps in the City
We’ve spoken a lot about how amazing temporary work can be and how it can lead to the most incredible opportunities.
Now it’s time to meet the brains behind the business!
Mum-of-two, Emeca Beckford, came up with the idea of Temps in the City after becoming frustrated with juggling work commitments and family life. The 36-year-old wanted to create a job site that allows job-seekers to enjoy the perfect work/life balance.
With over 20 years’ experience in the hospitality and customer service industry with Project Manager qualification and latterly a Commercial Property Manager across London, Emeca has built up a reputation for excellent customer service and innovative ideas within the workplace.
Pride in her work flows through Emeca as she is always striving for perfection, which is why she came up with Temps as an idea to give people the best opportunity to progress in their chosen career. Or to give people the chance to try out new careers, earn extra cash, benefit from new experiences and attain the perfect work/life balance people strive to have.
Emeca said: “I know the struggles people have with finding the right job for them and having worked in London, I know how the job market has changed.
“Some people want flexibility and some just require that little extra income - which is exactly why I hope Temps in the City can be successful. The job board is full of positions to help those who wish to work in the industry.
“The benefit of being a temp means you can gain experience, improve interpersonal skills, create a flexible work pattern, and most importantly for those dipping their toes into the job market, get head-hunted.
“Customer service is vital to Temps’ success. The job market is constantly evolving and different employers demand different ways of searching for the right candidate. While on the other hand, potential employees want to see where that temp job could take them.
“With Temps in the City, I want to revolutionise the way the job market is seen.”
