Temp of the Month – April 2023

Temp of the Month

Nina is our Temp of the Month!


April’s award goes to Nina.

Once again, we asked our clients to put forward their nominations for our Temp of the Month. I was absolutely delighted to receive Nina’s nomination and it echoed the feedback I had already received.

Nina’s supervisor said, “We have a complex business, with so many systems to train in and Nina is doing so well. Nina’s attitude to the training has been fantastic, always engaged and positive.

She is already part of the team, and showing how much of a team player she is. Nina has taken on many complex tasks, finding out the answers she needs to enable her to provide our customers with a quality and accurate response.”

Nina decided to register with us when she started looking round for a new role. She had worked at her previous position for 22 years, so it had been quite some time since she’d been looking for new roles and obviously searching for a job had changed quite a lot in that time. I was impressed that Nina was doing some additional courses to update her skills and I could see she had great potential for a particular office role I was recruiting for.  She had all the right skills and more, plus a fantastic can-do attitude.  Her supervisor has been nothing short of delighted with her efforts given to the training and Nina is now reaping the rewards of this in her day-to-day role.  She loves it there and they are so thrilled to have her.  Her contract is being extended because of her hard work.

Its been a pleasure to work with you, Nina. Thank you for all your amazing efforts and congratulations on your award.

We are extremely proud of our temporary workers, all of whom we expect to be hardworking and reliable. Each month we invite our clients and staff in the office to nominate any temp who has gone above and beyond or exceeded their expectations in some way. Out of these, we choose one winner, giving them £20 worth of vouchers to recognise their contribution and say thank you!
