Temp of the Month – August 2023

Temp of the Month

Graham is our Temp of the Month!


August’s award goes to Graham.

A few months ago, one of my client’s was looking for a temp with quite a niche set of skills alongside general admin skills. They needed someone who could build a CRM system for them, as well as offering customer service in this public facing role. Graham came to us after seeing the advert and met with us so we could assess his suitability for the position. I was really pleased that he had all the right skills and experience for the role and recommended him to our client without hesitation.

Since starting, we’ve had feedback both from Graham and our client to say how well work is going. I was delighted to hear from our client that Graham is a great asset to the team.

Congratulations Graham, and thank you for your 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.
