The unsung heroes of the workplace – temps – have been recognised with our annual Temp of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year!
We are pleased to announce that Emma Lewis and David Griffiths are winners of our innovative Temp of the Year Award! Emma, aged 32, of Leek, was nominated by her employers for our commercial division award, having impressed our clients HR team with her excellent service, can-do attitude and attention to detail.
Emma, who now holds a permanent position with the company as an HR administration assistant, said: “The award came as a lovely surprise and was completely unexpected.
“Originally I’d studied for a teacher training degree, but when I finished university I was unsure what I wanted to do and spotted the Brampton Recruitment advert then I was interviewed the next day – they’re very efficient!
“I’m really pleased with the vouchers and I’m probably going off to Debenhams to buy some make-up.”
David, 44, now works full time for our client based in Chesterton, Newcastle, having secured a permanent role as a commercial officer after impressing their accounts department with his efficiency and competence.
David said: “I was really surprised to win an award and I’m happy to have secured a permanent position now through Brampton. “I’d been looking for work for a few months; my new role is really interesting work, and living in Bradwell and the company being in Chesterton it’s ideal.
“I think the important thing when you’re looking for work is to be flexible and to keep an open mind and be willing to try different things.”
This is the fourth year that we have run the competition – inviting all employers of our 100+ temps to nominate individuals who have gone beyond the call of duty in their daily work.
Both winners were presented with a certificate and £50 in Love2Shop vouchers by Consultants Vikki and Jo.
We feel that Temp staff are a vital resource now in in a wide variety of businesses, not only offering flexibility but also additional knowledge and expertise which really add value to the workplace.
Temp roles also encompass far more than administration tasks and at all levels, for example we currently have roles for team leaders, commercial managers, IT technicians and mechanical engineers.
Every year we supply temps to hundreds of local businesses, and our annual awards are a wonderful opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve.
