Temp of the Month – August 2022

Temp of the Month

Karen is our Temp of the Month!


Temp of the Month
August’s award goes to Karen.


I am delighted to announce that our Octopus Temp of the Month for August is Karen.

Karen registered with me a few months ago when she relocated from another part of the country. Karen came to me wanting short term work that would fit in with her other commitments. Listening to Karen’s skills and experience from her other roles, I thought she would be perfect for a temporary role I was recruiting for, and I knew it would be flexible enough to accommodate her needs.

Karen has been wonderful in the job, with great feedback from our client. We awarded Karen our Temp of the Month to recognise her extra thought and dedication to our client, helping them to simplify their processes using her excellent Excel skills.

Karen is now moving on to her next adventure and I am incredibly grateful she chose Octopus to help her with her local job search.

Congratulations Karen and a big thank you for your wonderful work.



Could you be the next Temp of the Month?

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!

We publish our winners in the office, on social media and here.
