Temp of the Month – October 2022

Mark is our Temp of the Month!


Temp of the Month


October’s award goes to Mark.

I am delighted to announce that our Octopus Temp of the Month for October is Mark.


Mark registered with me earlier this year as he was looking for a senior permanent role. It was a difficult market for his preferred jobs but Mark was very open to temping while we continued the job search.

Mark started with our client in May and has been a complete joy to work with. We have received consistently great feedback from our client. Mark was able to quickly catch up the backlog of work and has moved the job on with more efficient processes.

I love that Mark is always lovely to talk to, reliable, great at his job, and has excellent taste in socks! He’s even taken to wearing the company branded socks – now that’s dedication! I can’t wait to see the Christmas selection.

Thank you Mark for all your hard 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.
