Becoming a CJR Temp
Our temporary workforce is one of the largest in the area and enjoys a reputation for being highly skilled and professional.
If you're considering working as a temp, this is how we can help you:
Registering with us - during your interview with us we will discuss your experience, skills, individual needs and expectations. We'll then give you an honest opinion of our chances of being able to find you work. We will also arrange tests and obtain references from your last 2 employers. Finally, as we are keen to ensure you have the opportunity to develop your skills, we will discuss any cross training which may be of benefit to you and make the necessary arrangements to get this underway.
Waiting for your first booking - we will obviously try to find you work as soon as possible. However, as we are reliant upon the seasonal demands and needs of our client companies, sometimes it is difficult to predict when this will be. If we aren't able to offer work straight away, keep us posted if there are changes in your circumstances ie: sickness, holidays, work received through other agencies etc and we'll get you work as soon as we can.
Accepting your first booking - as suitable work becomes available, we will contact you to discuss the assignment. Where possible, we will always give you a background brief on the client company - information such as the nature of their business, their general work ethic and their expectations of you as a temporary worker. At this stage, we will also confirm the rate of pay, hours of work and the duration for that particular assignment. If you have any reservations about accepting a booking offered, please don't hesitate to discuss things with us - you are important to us and we are keen that all our temporary staff are happy and confident in their work.
During your bookings - out of sight is not out of mind! We are always here to help and are also keen to hear how your booking is going. Please ring us at any time if you have any questions or experience any difficulties. It may be that we can help with a software support issue - or if you're temping "between jobs" - help you find a permanent job.
When your booking is completed - whilst we visit most of our client companies, we do appreciate any comments you may have following your assignments. Were they friendly? Are the offices comfortable? Were you provided with sufficient information to allow you to complete your work quickly and effectively? And your feedback about how we're doing is important to us too!
Here at Catherine Johnstone Recruitment our temps are our most valuable asset upon whom our reputation rests. We want you to enjoy being a member of our professional, well trained and efficient team and enjoy a long and successful partnership with us.
