Nate had heard of J. Kent Staffing through his most recent employer who uses J. Kent for its intermittent temporary Receptionist needs. As an HR & Community Advocate, Nate was working 60+ hours/week and needed to resign so that he could find a position that offered more work/life balance in order to help care for an ailing parent. He was concerned, though, about being able to maintain his current level of pay and being able to continue developing his professional experience.
J. Kent Staffing’s long-term temporary assignment ended up being the perfect interim solution for Nate. Our client is a federally funded nonprofit who operates and turns around underperforming early childhood education programs throughout the U.S. They called upon J. Kent Staffing to hire a temporary Benefits Assistant to assist their Benefits Department in preparations for their upcoming open enrollment period. They liked Nate’s exposure to HR and knew that with his strong MS Excel skills (he tested 97%!) and interest in learning about benefits administration, he would be the right person for the job.
Through J. Kent’s temporary assignment, Nate is able to maintain the same pay rate as with his previous employer, gain experience with a different area of human resources, and have more free time to assist his family. There will even be some spare time now to enjoy listening to concerts at Red Rocks from his backyard in Morrison, and partaking in some of his other passions such as hot yoga and snowboarding.
