Here's a testimonial from a company who did just that:
"Having designed and manufactured a range of official merchandise for one of the largest airshows in the world we were faced with the task of recruiting 10 retail staff to work in three shops over the week of the show and a retail manager to oversee the day-to-day running of the operation. No matter, a quick call followed by a briefing meeting with Louise at Unitemps and a week later we had a shortlist of potential candidates for both the manager's position and the core staff. We interviewed three candidates for the managers role as the demands were quite specific whereas time constraints meant that for the retail staff we relied on the experience of Unitemps to select a team on our behalf – they did an excellent job….
"Having worked as a recruitment consultant for 2 years myself I appreciate how difficult it can be to find good, reliable temporary staff that match the clients specific requirements. The retail manager we eventually selected was exceptional and much of the smooth running of the project can be put down to him. All the staff were punctual and worked hard in what were on occasions less than ideal conditions due to the weather and the logistics of the site.
Post event the matter of viewing timesheets and signing them off was made extremely easy due to a secure online facility which meant a very short and painless amount of time was spent on the administrative side of business - an important piece of added value from our perspective.
So, all in all a very positive experience indeed and we will certainly be using Unitemps again for similar projects in the future!" Chris Bennett, Head of Retail, Brandnew Corporation
