Temp of the Year 2022

Big announcement incoming.

Its time once again to announce the winner of our ‘Temp of the Year’ Award. We are extreme proud of our temporary workers who display flexibility, commitment and effort in their temporary assignments.

In this age of rapid change and uncertainty, temporary work has emerged as a valuable tool for both job seekers and employers. Its flexibility and adaptability make it an attractive option for anyone looking to enhance their career prospects or to address their staffing needs.

We have a long standing tradition at Octopus to recognise the work of our Temping team with our ‘Temp of the Month’ Awards. We have had another 12 fantastic winners in 2022 who thoroughly deserved their special recognition for their contributions at work. Out of the fab 12, we have the honour of selecting the winner for our ‘Temp of the Year’.

Here’s a reminder of our 12 worthy winners of ‘Temp of the Month’ in 2022.



A worth winner.

I am delighted to take this moment to give a big round of applause to our September ‘Temp of the Month’, Miles, for winning the ‘Best Temporary Worker of the Year’ award!

Anna and I had the pleasure of surprising Miles recently on his current work assignment to present his award for ‘Temp of the Year’.

Miles is a real credit to himself and Octopus. I would like to thank him for his hard work and loyalty, and I was absolutely delighted to meet Miles after all the wonderful things I’ve heard about him and present this award personally.

Anna met Miles last year as he was looking for temporary work while he worked through a career application process. Anna was able to find him a temporary assignment and he did such a great job that Miles was top of her list when it came to new temporary vacancies.

Miles has worked for several of our clients, and everyone has loved him. His feedback from clients has always been amazing. He is always responsive, responsible and hardworking and the team have loved working with him.

Anna remarked, “I am super proud of Miles and his journey throughout his time working for us. I have clients that can’t stop singing his praises and it’s been lovely to watch his confidence bloom with each work assignment he has taken.”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to Octopus. Your attention to detail, willingness to learn, and your friendly personality have made you an invaluable member of our temping team. Your flexibility and adaptability to new situations have been an asset to your placements, and we appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done.

Your hard work and positive attitude did not go unnoticed, and we are grateful for your dedication and commitment to excellence.

On behalf of the entire team, congratulations on your achievement! Keep up the excellent work and continue to shine in everything you do.
