Welcome to the University of Surrey Unitemps department. We are the intelligent staffing solution, providing full recruitment services for temporary and permanent staffing.
What we do
Our mission is to provide educated and intelligent workers to the local business community. We supply temporary staff for short-term and long-term assignments and fill permanent vacancies ranging from administration through to experienced graduates. We support our students with gaining essential industry related work experience and provide them with opportunities to earn money so they can support themselves financially while they are studying.
You will experience a friendly and professional approach with an individually tailored service to suit your needs. We can also conduct salary research and give advice on pay rates and levels.
Our service and procedures ensure all recruitment activity is fully compliant with current employment and UKVI legislation. We work to Agency Worker Regulations and ensure equal opportunities and diversity across all areas. We are also a member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, the recruitment industry’s professional body.
We have a database of over 7,000 registered job seekers comprising current students (undergraduates and postgraduates), recent graduates and experienced workers. Students are a perfect resource for working unsociable and flexible hours, they will also bring fresh ideas and key skills from their studies. Our recent graduates can work full-time hours and take on permanent positions, which are valuable for progressing their careers and providing you with the full-time resource you need.

How we are different
As well as having a very unique candidate database, we can target current students by their subject and level of study so we can deliver on very specific person specifications. Our large community of international students enables us to provide very cost effective language and translation services. Our consultants do not work for commission and all the profits are re-invested to improve student facilities.
