Temp of the Month – October 2023

Temp of the month winner

Ian is our Temp of the Month!


October’s award goes to Ian.

I am really pleased that our October Temp of the Month is awarded to Ian.

Katherine had the pleasure of surprising Ian with our Temp of the Month award at our pop-up office in Chantry.

I registered Ian earlier in the year. My first impressions were extremely positive. I thought, “wow, he is just perfect. Not only are his skills so transferrable, he has an amazing attitude – he just wants to work”.

Ian was a delight to meet. He was very honest and open during our meeting, which makes my job a lot easier, as I gained a much better insight in how to help him find work.

We placed Ian with a fantastic client of ours, and have since received excellent feedback about him. Ian is reliable, hard working, flexible and a pleasure to have in the team.

Thank you, Ian, for all of your hard work. It was a pleasure to meet you and I’m so pleased you’ve been recognised as our Temp of the Month.



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.
