John is our Temp of the Month for January 2023

John is our Temp of the Month!

Temp of the Month


January’s award goes to John.


John has been a favourite with us for a long time, so it was an absolute delight when the lovely people at Shaftesbury Town Council nominated him for Temp of the Month.

Throughout the time I have known John it has been a pleasure to know him. John often pops in to see us to catch up and its always lovely to see him. John has had several assignments with us because I know our clients will love him and he is always first on my list to call when we have events to work at. John is always willing to lend a hand and offers to drive his team mates to the event sites.
John has made a great impression at his current temping assignment – here are a few things they told us about John.

“He is extremely reliable, always smiling, and happy despite the weather conditions that he has to endure. He has become a firm favourite with all of us and many of the towns’ people and market traders. He is always polite and goes the extra mile to help and is a true ambassador for our town.”

I think it’s safe to say that John was blown away when Katherine and the team at Shaftesbury Town Council surprised him with our award for January Temp of the Month.

Congratulations John!





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.

About the author

I’m on hand for our industrial and hospitality recruitment here at Octopus – think warehousing, production, construction, kitchen and technical type jobs. I also run our seasonal event work – this is a great option for those wanting to earn some extra money without commitment.

I really enjoy meeting our job hunters and helping them to find work. It’s been lovely to talk to local people and find out what matters to them.
