Temp of the Month – November 2022

Rachel is our Temp of the Month!


Temp of the Month


November’s award goes to Rachel.

I am delighted to announce that our Octopus Temp of the Month for November is Rachel.

Rachel registered with us and secured a role through us a few years ago, and the team has stayed connected with Rachel over the years. I caught up with Rachel in August as she was beginning to look around for her next job move and wanted something with career and development potential.

I was able to secure Rachel some interviews and I was delighted that she received two job offers. Rachel selected her current temporary role as it had permanent job role potential with plenty of development opportunities and it offered her the chance to get to know the role and the company first.

Rachel’s first month has flown by and I was so happy to hear that her manager was super impressed with how engaged Rachel is and doing so well in her work. Rachel had equally positive feedback, remarking how kind and welcoming the team have been. Sounds like a perfect match!

Congratulations Rachel.



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.
