Temporary staff

We have extensive experience of recruiting the best temporary staff to meet our clients’ needs

Temporary recruitment is something of a specialist area, and the process is handled in a similar but also different way to permanent staff.

All checks are carried out to ensure that the temporary workers are met and interviewed to confirm that they have the right to work in the UK and that their references check out. The beauty of temporary staffing is that you can appoint one or more people to come into your business to complete an assignment or project and we will manage the onboarding and payroll process for you to ensure that everything is as seamless as possible. We find that every client has different requirements, but there are four aspects that are always consistent. All our clients are looking for people who:

• turn up on time
• can complete the task at hand
• fit in to the business culture
• are reliable.

We are very fortunate that one of our team members – Jason – has experience of working for the world’s third largest recruitment agency for more than 15 years and who joined us mid pandemic after an unfortunate redundancy. Jason’s experience was of managing, building and recruiting large to small numbers of workforce of just under 200 people at any given time, and we are very fortunate to have this skillset within our business.

This in-house expertise means that we really understand what it takes to build teams within tight deadlines. We can make sure that we source the right people to fit each client’s brief, and that we don’t just find them but also make sure they are the kind of people who will stay and perform well on the contract.

One of our case studies gives an insight into how our temporary recruitment service can work. The client was relocating the office from Peterborough to Cambridge and they needed to recruit a workforce of around 80 people running two separate shifts (6am – 2pm and 2pm – 10pm). All these staff members were to be recruited within two key periods: during the autumn for six to eight weeks and in December and January, also for six to eight weeks. Attracting staff to work on minimum wage was one challenge, and the other one was to get people to work throughout the Christmas period when so many tend to have the time off to be with their family. Jason developed this contract over a ten year period and successfully became one of their key consultants managing the account during this time.

Creating the right relationship and understanding from the start really helps to build you a team of reliable workers that can achieve the kind of assignments you are looking to fulfil and help you improve productivity. Ultimately, this is something that we work really hard at achieving for our clients.
