FAQs about hiring temp staff

How do you screen and evaluate your candidates?

When we receive a candidate’s CV via a job advert or online, our consultants then meet them face-to-face for a minimum 30-minute interview to assess their suitability and test their skills, as well as check their eligibility to work and their references. Delivering a high-quality service is paramount to the way we work at Tiger. We do all the work behind the scenes to guarantee you receive the very best temporary staffing solution.

How much does a temp agency charge an employer?

It depends on the seniority of the job. Temp agencies generally issue you an invoice for every week that the temp candidate works with you – this means that their working hours will be directly reflected in your weekly invoice. This includes the candidate’s hourly rate, their holiday contribution, pension, national insurance, any expenses, bonuses and the agency margin.
