How does temps work
Help and Understanding
Whether you are looking for maternity, sickness or holiday cover, someone for a special project, or just to cover during busy periods – Ace Appointments can help. It doesn’t matter for how long either – one day, one week, one month or whatever your time scale.
Ideally we like to meet with you in person to gain a better understanding of the role in question, the type of person you are looking for in terms of skills, ability and personal attributes, and to observe the working environment in terms of work ethic and culture. However, we appreciate that time is invariably of the essence and therefore, we are always very happy to take details over the telephone or by email.
With the information to hand we work hard to match the skills required and place someone who we believe will fit into your environment as quickly as possible.
Making it Easy
There are no payroll liabilities such as Tax, NI and holiday pay for you to worry about, because we organise all of that for you. We will charge you an appropriate hourly rate and all you need to do is settle the account.
Eligibility to work and proof of identity are confirmed for all our temporary staff and references are taken up wherever possible.
We are fully conversant with the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) and will work with you to ensure that the correct procedures are in place.
As a matter of course, we will brief temporary staff on the assignment as well as your organisation and culture.
Standards are high at Ace Appointments – we really care about our temps.
We really get to know our candidates through extensive interviewing. The candidate registration process lasts approximately one hour and during this time we will evaluate their skills, ability and aptitude, as well as discussing their employment history and assess their personality type.
By booking one of our temporaries you trust us with your business and we value this trust.
It’s not rocket science!
We know that if staff are happy, motivated and treated well, then they will perform to their maximum ability. By taking care of our staff we are able to take care of your business by providing outstanding individuals who may even exceed your expectations. You could find yourself offering them permanent employment as a result!
We motivate our temps in many different ways: with holiday pay accrued from day one, on-going recognition and feedback from each assignment; weekly contact and of course, excellent rates of pay.
Many of our temporaries have been with us for years because we look after them.

Saving You Time and Money
Recruitment and selection is an expensive and time-consuming process, whatever the role.
If you calculated the time involved in the recruitment process you will come to the conclusion that recruiting costs and time can be greatly reduced by placing the onus on us – we can provide you with a shortlist of high calibre candidates who we confidently expect to match your job specification in terms of capabilities and personality – all you need to do is interview them.
Ideally we like to meet with you in person to gain a better understanding of the role in question, the type of person you are looking for in terms of skills, ability and personal attributes and to observe the working environment in terms of work ethic and culture. This ‘whole picture’ enables us to better match candidates.
If you employ one of our candidates and it does not work out for whatever reason within the first 4 weeks of employment, we will find you a suitable replacement free of charge (Terms & Conditions apply).
Following our meeting we will provide you with a shortlist of candidates, who have been interviewed and whose skills and abilities have been assessed, where appropriate. We can offer interviews within 48 hours where necessary.
If the role demands precise skills or knowledge, we can take in-house documents and recreate them for a testing environment.
Getting to know our Candidates
We really get to know our candidates through extensive interviewing. The candidate registration process lasts approximately one hour. During this time we will evaluate their skills, ability and aptitude, as well as discussing their employment history and assess their personality type.
Before a candidate attends an interview we will brief them extensively on the position in question and where applicable, will distribute any information about your organisation.
When you have made an offer on the position, we will negotiate the terms on your behalf, making sure that the needs of both employer and employee are satisfactorily met.
You have to enjoy working and interacting with people to do our job and our consultants genuinely love working with people. We are passionate, dedicated and motivated to providing the very best customer service to our clients and candidates.
