Temp of the Month – November 2023

Temp of the Month

Nikki is our Temp of the Month!

November’s award goes to Nikki.

I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki back in April, when she was exploring opportunities in accounts or office management, both on a temporary and permanent basis.

Her experience in these fields is truly outstanding. I quickly secured a temporary assignment for Nikki with one of our local clients using our video platform. And wow, did she excel! Not only did she impress the entire team, but she also demonstrated remarkable competence in her day-to-day tasks.

When her temporary role came to an end, I wasted no time in finding Nikki her next assignment. I was fortunate to be working on a placement for a new client, and I immediately thought of Nikki. The timing was fortuitous and I was able to recommend Nikki. Once again, we used our video platform to introduce Nikki’s application and our new client loved her video. They wanted to meet Nikki straight away as they felt confident she would be right for the job and made an offer on meeting her in person. Even better, our client was happy to invite Nikki’s dog Bertie to the office!

Yet again, Nikki has effortlessly integrated into a new team. The Directors have been singing her praises, mentioning how seamlessly she fits into their team and how she quickly grasped the necessary systems and processes to thrive in her role.

Meeting with Nikki is always a breath of fresh air. Her infectious positivity never fails to make an impact. Congratulations, Nikki, and thank you for your unwavering dedication!
