Temping provides the opportunity to work flexibly. Only work during school hours, take the summers off or take a break to do something else with your life. Either way, if you are a temp then it's your choice when and where you work. You are in control.

Why use Source Temps?

  • We’ll only supply you with quality temps – and with your help we can prove it
  • For every week that a temp is working with you, we will ask you to sign a weekly timesheet as normal. However, we also want you to give your temp a score in five key areas depending on their performance that week. A mini appraisal.
  • This simple but innovative grading system will encourage temps to give you 100%. It will also enable us to obtain far more useful information regarding the temps’ actual performance than obtaining references alone.
  • This way we get relevant performance-related data each week and straight from the temp’s direct supervisor - it also means we can react quickly to any potential problems that may occur. Ultimately, this will ensure that we only present you with temps who are completely dedicated to the work they undertake and with a proven track record that you can actually review and rely on.
  • Of course, you can be assured of the usual professionalism, speed and thorough screening of candidates that you have come to expect from Source.
  • Source have a large number of temps available with a whole spectrum of specialist skills ranging from secretarial and administrative right through to qualified, senior professionals who are available to step into a role at short notice.
  • We conduct in-depth consultations with everyone who registers in order to establish the type of assignments that would be most suited to them. We then obtain all pre-employment checks including references, valid right to work, identification, proof of professional qualifications, basic police disclosure and all payroll related information.
  • Source Temps will deal with any management or disciplinary issues that arise and will be on hand to offer support to ensure our temps are happy and motivated. All temps are employed under a ‘Contract for services’ with Source Temps and so we take care of the payroll and quarterly returns, saving you administration time and costs. We also offer a weekly payroll service which is ideal for returning employees or students.
  • Source Temps charges an hourly, all-inclusive fee for our service and invoices are sent out on a weekly basis. If you would like to discuss your specific requirements in more detail please give us a call on 01481 701616 or email [email protected]
