Blog Post – Simpson Dean Recruitment – What Should You Look for in a Temp Recruitment Agency?

Choosing the right temp agency is critical to finding that lucrative temp job and ensuring that you are treated fairly in your new role.

With so many different recruitment agencies out there, how do you know which temp agency to go for?

We would advise being clear on what it is that you want to do. Once you know, perform a local search: be specific in your search terms. For example, if you are looking for a temporary warehouse operative job in Buckinghamshire, then that’s what you need to type in. The more specific your search, the closer the match will be.


Choose a local agency, or at least one with a branch locally. If they are a good agency they will require you to come in for an interview.


You should look for a professional agency, one that offers ongoing support and training. After all, you should be important to them.


Do they call you back? If you don’t hear from an agency, it’s unlikely they are going to be supportive should you need their help. Remember, temporary workers are paid by the agency and not the employer. You need to have a contactable recruitment agency.


If you have a specialist skill set, we would recommend using a specialist recruiter. One that knows what you do inside out. They will have more opportunities with the recruiters you want to work for, doing the job you want to do.

At Simpson Dean recruitment we are always striving to invest in our temporary workers. We provide ongoing training and support, locally, for you, when you need it.
