Temporary work has been recommended to women who are trying to decide what career direction they should take.
Anne Fairweather, the head of public policy Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), commented on the release of the recent Jobs for Girls by the Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Committee.
The report called for more action to close the gender pay gap, which has been fully supported by Ms Fairweather.
"In many cases there is a role for temporary work to provide the ideal starting point for women either entering the job market for the first time, who are returning or who want to find a new role which fits in with their lifestyle," she said.
Temporary work is useful for both genders, Ms Fairweather added, but especially for those looking for a career change.
Employers were warned recently by the REC to tackle the issue of diversity in the workplace.
The REC stated that recruiters play a crucial role in this process.
