Benefits of temping with us?

Shivam Placement Consultancy operates a dedicated, loyal and hard-working Temporaries Division. We offer candidates work on a daily basis matching their personal and specific requirements to the needs of our clients.

The benefits of temping through The Shivam Placement Consultancy are numerous and include the following:

  • We only deal with office-based work; therefore we guarantee that you will not be compromised by offering you alternative work in other sectors. You can be assured that your Consultants will concentrate on finding you assignments that match your initial requirements and skill-set.
  • Your Consultants are all professionally qualified and are individual members of the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) which is the Governing Body for our Industry.
  • Should you be looking for permanent work whilst temping we actively support your applications and will arrange suitable time off for interviews etc.
  • We also offer temporary to permanent opportunities in the local marketplace.
  • The minute you start temping, you will accrue holiday pay, which is currently 0.38 days per week. This will be paid to you the week following your time off.
  • Temping is great if you are looking for flexible hours of work to fit around your personal circumstances.
  • We offer long and short term assignments and anything in-between, and pride ourselves on paying top rates in the local market.
  • We have developed some very strong relationships with local businesses ranging from small privately owned companies to larger blue chip organisations.
  • We offer training on the latest computer packages to either enhance your skills or cross-train you on new packages. This training is always free of charge.
  • We promise to treat you as an individual and not just another “candidate” and will always listen and respect your point of view
