Temp of the Month – March 2023

Temp of the Month

Gary is our Temp of the Month!


March’s award goes to Gary.

I was delighted to receive Gary’s nomination for our Temp of the Month award.

Gary registered with us a couple of years ago and was looking to temp part-time to give him more flexibility and work-life balance.

Gary has made it super easy to work with him – he is very polite and reliable and always makes himself available when our client asks for him. He even bikes to Shaftesbury from Gillingham to get to work, no matter the weather – now that’s dedication!

His manager has been very impressed with his efforts and nominated Gary because he is hard working and dedicated to his job.

Congratulations Gary and thank you for all your super 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.

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.
