Candidates – temporary recruitment
Our long established recruitment relationships with South West London’s largest employers, means that temporary work can often become available at short notice. It is essential you are in regular contact with your consultant regarding your availability.
Suitable temporary positions will be presented to you with all the relevant information regarding the company, location, duration and pay rates.
Once you start an assignment, we call you on the first morning to check that you have arrived safely. We speak to you again later in the week to ensure all is okay, confirm re-booking or to discuss another assignment.
