Tiger Recruitment operates across multiple divisions for all manner of temporary requirements. From same-day requirements through to long-term contracts, we can assist when your team needs some extra support. At Christmas time, particularly, you may find yourself understaffed or operating on a skeleton staff. We’ve put together a guide on how Tiger can help find the best Christmas temps for your company, regardless of what you require.

Business Support

Our business support temporary division can source Christmas temp cover for a receptionist, your personal assistant or office manager with little to no notice when your staff are on leave. Our extensive database of candidates looking for a Christmas temp job in London will ensure that we can find the perfect temp for your business requirements.

Unlike other temporary recruitment agencies, we meet all our candidates face-to-face to make sure that we send you the person with the best skills and personality fit for your business. In addition, our innovative candidate sourcing methods like our referral system, strategic marketing, use of social media and industry job boards ensures we attract the best temporary candidates. Whether it be a one-day placement, or ongoing temp cover, Tiger Recruitment can help.


If you’re a sole-trader or self-employed, it’s not long before you must complete your Self-Assessment tax return. The deadline falls on the 31st of January, so if you need some extra help to meet the deadline, why not consider hiring a virtual assistant (VA) through Tiger Virtual? Our assistants have been referenced-checked, their holiday and pension contributions have been taken care of and we also look after their national insurance. All you have to do at the end of the week is sign off a timesheet and pay an invoice. A VA can help organise your paperwork and make the enquiries necessary to finalise your taxes before the deadline, while you enjoy the festive season with no stress.

If you’re in charge of staffing a private household and haven’t considered the extra support you may need for the Christmas period, why not enquire after our private temporary division’s services? Tiger Private is perfectly placed to source highly-trained private chefs to cook a delicious feast; lifestyle managers who can look after Christmas shopping; drivers who can transport your principal’s family to and from events; and many other household temp staff requirements.

Our private consultants can also introduce you to a black book of experienced professionals called the experts. They’re working at the top of their field, in niche areas like fine art, spirituality, menswear, beauty, classic cars and many others. A private consultation with one of our experts makes for a fantastic gift.


With Christmas being the busiest period in your establishment’s calendar, you’ll need staff who are highly trained and won’t let you down. When you enlist the help of our hospitality temporary division to source Christmas temp staff, you can adjust their hours to suit your requirements – so you never pay for staff you don’t need. Our pool of hospitality professionals ranges from senior-level operations staff to junior wait staff, and they’re readily available to hire over the holiday period.

Whatever the requirement – if you’re looking to hire a Christmas temp, Tiger Recruitment can help! Call us on 020 7917 1801 or let us know what you need here.
