There are specific temporary jobs, however, where you need not go on a job search when you arrive in the UK. This is because you already have a job offer for a specific short-term employment even before you leave New Zealand. Under the Tier 5 Temporary Worker scheme, jobs are classified under five categories.

Charity Worker Category

This is for Kiwis interested to undertake temporary voluntary work that is related to the activities of a charitable
organisation. You can volunteer for a maximum of 12 months without pay.

Creative and Sporting Category

Are you a creative artist, entertainer or interested to work in professional sport? If so, you should find a sponsor for this particular category. You can live and work in the UK for a year if you have a sports-related job, and two years if you are an artist or an entertainer.

Religious Worker Category

This is for anyone interested in doing temporary religious work. Unlike other work permits, this category specifies that the job should only be done during a holiday or break from New Zealand.

Government Authorised Exchange Category

This is only applicable for people on specially approved government worker exchange arrangements. You will be authorised to stay for a maximum of 24 months to participate in worker exchange programmes.

International Agreement Category

If you are an employee of overseas government or international organisation, a part of a diplomatic household, or working under the General Agreement on Trade in Services, you will be eligible for this category. Depending on the position and international agreement, you can stay and work in the UK for a maximum of 72 months.

In the event that you are under the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme or a visa other than the Tier 5 Work Visa, you can do away with the sponsorship and search for jobs all by yourself. There are plenty of online recruitment agencies that you can check out, some of which specialises in temporary work.

Work Gateways

Staying true to its name, Work Gateways is your ultimate source of anything and everything related to UK jobs. Aside from job listings, you will find information on how to get a job in the UK, about work visa, National Insurance number, health insurance, money transfer, UK accommodation and how to write a CV. To search for work opportunities, simply type in temporary jobs on the search bar found at the lower left corner.

Jobsite

An award-winning service provider for UK job search and jobs by e-mail, Jobsite has an extensive job listing that you can narrow down by typing in “temporary” in the Keywords or Ref bar, and then specifying the location and proximity before you hit the Search button. This will then return a list of temporary jobs in different
fields. These include a temporary post as Attendance Officer, Credit Controller, Maintenance Assistant, Full Time Receptionist and many others.

Reed has become the number one job site in the UK that has forged a partnership with over 8,000 private and public sector employers. As international job specialists, they cater to job seekers from all over the world including Kiwis.
