Recruiting temporary staff in Tunbridge Wells has been busy and fast-paced throughout our history. This is an article aimed at demonstrating how you can benefit from temps recruitment into TN, ME or Kent businesses, to help you through to the other side of the pandemic crisis. We tackle 'what is a temp worker?' 'why would I benefit from temp workers in Kent?' and 'how do I book a temp in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks or Kings Hill? (Our key service areas!). 

Temporary work in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and across Kent has been a popular venture for candidates as it offers-

  • Weekly pay;
  • Opportunities to build experience and skills;
  • Flexibility and retained control;
  • Experiencing different environments, roles, structures and processes.

The temps recruitment market has also been highly active on the client side, and here is why your business should consider temporary support, to see you through this temporary crisis…!

  1. COVER ABSENCE

Whilst it is exciting and promising to see government analysts suggest we are ‘past the peak’ of the virus, many local businesses continue to experience unreliable staff attendance. With self-isolation recommended as the best strategy for suspected virus cases, staff absences are becoming regular, do not let this leave your business skill short! Whether it be someone to come and pick up emails or the phone for a week, or a hands-on light industrial temp to support production level management, we can help! It takes one call to book a temp, and we typically fill temp bookings within an hour, and can have temps arrive on site the same day! It’s as easy as that!

2. STABILISE/MANAGE CASHFLOW

The virus pandemic, both in its severity and unpredictability, has invoked sharp changes to sales figures, with businesses such as Primark announcing £0 monthly sales. Combined with the inability to predict the future, this has created an immediate need for businesses to stabilise their cashflow. This is where our brilliant accounts temps come in! Practices and industry-businesses can benefit from introducing an accountancy temp, in order to manage backdated company accounts, identify outstanding debt or income sources, and run credit control. We also have a bank of several available credit control professionals, ready to ensure your outstanding debts are recovered ultimately freeing up cash, and your time, for usage elsewhere in the business.

*Side note* On the flip side of this… Many recruiting TN, ME and Kent businesses have pre-briefed us on their desire for the best market sales talent, for when they return to office! Determined to maximise sales and revenue generation, decision makers are planning to expand their sales departments and make the most of all market opportunities, as businesses return to full functionality.

3. ADAPTING TO DEMAND CHANGES

Whether your business supplies medial/pharmaceutical equipment and has seen sharp increases in demand or it is in the travel industry and has seen sharp changes to customer enquiries, our temps can and will help! We have supported businesses adapting to a work from home model, and supported businesses changing their production process to meet NHS needs! Whether its customers checking delivery schedules and availability, or asking on the state of their booking/refund, your business needs to respond efficiently and aptly in order to maximise customer satisfaction and ultimately retention. Rather than being unable to process orders, increase production levels, or answer telephones within 3 rings, why not recruit Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks or Kings Hill temps to optimise your business performance?!

   Temps answer an immediate, short or long term, need without requiring the commitment of a permanent contract or salary, and ultimately your need can be reviewed at any point.

4. E-COMMERCE

Changes to demand have been immense. And whilst e-commerce in Kent has represented a growth industry, the virus pandemic has super-catalysed this. With social spaces and non-essential public spaces likely to remain to locked down for a prolonged period, e-commerce has represented an excellent gateway for businesses to market their products and services, and for consumers to continue purchasing, from the safety and comfort of their own home. Therefore, it is hard to see this second advent of e-commerce reversing very quickly! Businesses that 3 months ago might have never considered incorporating e-commerce into their model, are now forced to, at the risk of having no realistic revenue generation for the length of this crisis.

   Therefore, whether on a temporary, contractual (or permanent) basis, businesses are considering recruiting e-commerce specialists and web developers, to either create an e-commerce platform, or to improve their existing one- in best practice and usability. Ultimately, digital marketing agency staff and temps would present a similarly worthy investment in order to publicly advertise service changes and to ensure businesses are positioning themselves and their products/services in the most effective manner.

Overall, the virus continues to impact every single person in the UK, in one way or another. That said, it certainly will not be forever. Each week that passes is another week closer to coming out the outside, but we are finding that recruiting temps in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Kings Hill (our key service areas) is assisting those businesses to perform at their new optimal. Ultimately, it takes one call to book a temp to come and provide any manner of support to make your life easier. Hourly pay, fully managed by RecSol; flexibility to extend/end contracts as needed; and full support and service from one of our temps team should be enough to tempt every Kent (ME or TN) recruiting business to hire a temp today!
