Temp of the Month Winner Announced!

Posted on: 14 Jun 2017, admin

Congratulations to Rachel Millard who won our Temp of the Month award for May. Here she is with our Divisional Manager David Forbes (left) and Senior Consultant James Cooke (right).

Rachel’s line manager Tess gave the following glowing feedback about Rachel:

‘Rachel joined our busy recruitment team at a time of significant change and stress, to take on one specific aspect of the work. She is incredibly quick on the uptake, we only have to tell her something once and she picks it up and runs with it. In addition to her main duty, she has taken on additional tasks on both an ad hoc and regular basis.

Rachel is full of initiative. Several times she has heard me on the phone and before I’ve even finished the call she has emailed me the information I will need to take the next step, or offered to take on the task I’ve been talking about.

She has a lovely manner and everyone who meets her warms to her, which reflects very well on the team and on us as an employer. Just yesterday, we had an unsolicited email from one of our most senior managers, commending Rachel for going the extra mile to be helpful to the team concerned.

We couldn’t be more pleased and think that Rachel really deserves your Temporary of the Month award.’

Well done to Rachel. She wins a well-deserved Amazon voucher to treat herself. We caught up with her to ask her how she felt about winning Temp of the Month:

How do you feel about winning temp of the month?

Initially, lied to and violated after being lured into a meeting room under false pretences!!! All jokes aside, I’m so happy to have been nominated and chosen for Temp of the Month. I can’t stop smiling!

 Why do you think you were nominated for Temp of the Month?

I brought some background knowledge with me and so have been able to apply this to the role. I’ve felt so comfortable here that I’ve had no issues with pushing myself out of my comfort zone to help where I can.

 What do you like about the company you’re working for?

At no point during my time working here have I felt like just a temp. The people are welcoming and friendly and really have a different approach to most organisations. There’s a different feeling working here. I feel very comfortable and valued.

 How will you spend your £20 Amazon voucher?

I’m not sure…I’m a bit of a craft geek so maybe something for scrapbooking (I have a scrapbook for photos from my travels).

 Tell us one thing about yourself your colleagues don’t know

I hate these questions! Ummm…my little toe faces the wrong way! Apparently I talk in my sleep too – that one is news to me, not just my colleagues!
