At Octopus, we have a dedicated and experienced team with members who specialise solely in temporary, contract and interim recruitment. You’ll have access to exclusive bookings and assignments with the best clients in the local area. Our consultants concentrate on getting to know both you personally and your skill set, ensuring that you enjoy and gain from each assignment that you work in. We provide temporary staffing and recruitment services right across the South West of England , covering a variety of economic sectors including office & administration, manufacturing, agricultural , warehouse and other positions. Small or large volume, last-minute or planned in advance, we work with a wide range of companies to use temporary staff to drive their businesses forward.

Learn new skills

Temping will give you the opportunity to perhaps see a different industry or environment at the same time as learning new skills. It is a great way to discover an area especially if you have recently moved. Temping can also enable you to meet new people socially – we have known many temps who have been invited back to a Christmas do long after the end of their assignment!

Temporary often leads to permanent

If you choose to take a temporary assignment but are still seeking permanent employment, don’t worry! Our permanent recruitment team will always continue to actively seek roles for you and will work closely with the temporary team to assist you in coordinating times for your permanent job interviews. Employers also often create a permanent role when they find an excellent employee through temp work!
