Temporary work at One Step Recruitment

One Step Recruitment can help you find the temporary contract you are looking for. Temporary work can range from full-time and part-time work, to occasional or holiday cover. Employers we work with range from those who rely on temporary staff as a vital part of their business (very often leading to permanent work), to those who need a helping hand for a few hours a week – and everything in between. 

We regularly supply many events in the area with hospitality and catering staff and have long standing relationships with some of the regions leading music and sporting event venues. Registering with One Step Recruitment means you’re no longer looking for your next temporary role alone, which is especially hard if you’re already working. What’s more, our services for those looking for a job are completely free.

About registering

To understand your requirements and to represent you in the best way with employers, we ask you to visit one of our branches and register with us. We meet with everyone who needs our help to understand what you are looking for, from the type of role you’re after to the money you require and how far you can travel.

In our first meeting we are required by law to check your ID to ensure you are permitted to work in the UK (it’s not us being difficult!), so don’t forget your passport or birth certificate, as well as proof of your National Insurance number. For temporary work, we also ask you where possible to bring in two references from previous employers. Most importantly, please bring your bank details so you can be paid for the work that you do!

If you don’t have a CV for your first meeting with One Step then please don’t worry.  If this is required by an employer for a temporary work placement, please follow the help sheet and template further down this page.

You’ll need to have good spoken English, but if English isn’t your first language then don’t worry as between our branches we have recruitment consultants who are also fluent in Polish, Romanian, Spanish, Cantonese and Russian.

The registration process should take no longer than an hour and once completed we can start looking for the right job for you. It’s important to remember that we are here to help you find a suitable position, so feel free to tell us anything that might help us to match you.

Search Jobs

You may be registering with One Step Recruitment to apply for a job we have advertised. Great! But the chances are we have other jobs you may also be interested in, so we will also see if any of these appeal to you as they arise. With some of our regular clients we know about roles before they are even advertised.

You can also download the One Step Recruitments app, this allows you to see the latest temporary positions available, as well as setting up job alerts.

We will never discuss you with an employer without first getting your permission.
