Temp Agency


We understand why social workers, care workers and office staff opt to practice as agency workers – rather than joining a service on a permanent basis.

Better pay and flexible working often feature as the main reasons that people turn to agency or locum work. This, however, requires them to forego certain securities as well as opportunities for training, holiday and sick pay.

Here at Ocelot People Solutions, we’re combining the luxuries of agency work with the securities and benefits of a permanent position. You’ll be treated as one of our own and as we benefit from your skills and experience, we’ll support you in continuing to develop them.

This is agency and locum work done differently, find out more and join us today.

Why Ocelot People Solutions

We genuinely feel that we have combined the best of both worlds in terms of agency and permanent work.

For those who prefer the freedom and flexibility of agency work, not to mention the pay, you’ll find all of that here.

On top of that, you’ll also be looked after like any of our permanent staff. On arrival, you’ll receive a full induction – often lacking for locum workers – as well as ongoing investment to ensure that you are properly embedded into your team and the service itself.

We’ve developed our own bespoke timesheet management system to make it easy for you track your time on your computer, tablet or phone. The new system will also allow you to track your references, access compliance documents and submit expense forms all on one simple form.

Many agency workers recognise that a key downside to this type of work is a lack of access to proper training, often having to shell out themselves in order to undertake necessary training. This won’t be the case here, you’ll be able to take part in a wide range of training and development opportunities that will allow you to refresh, hone and develop your skills and knowledge.

You’ll also have access to a full benefits package, something of a rarity in the agency world. This will include flexible working and the opportunity to accumulate paid holiday and sick days. You’ll also have access to our incredible staff discount scheme which includes reduced health club fees amongst many other great offers.

Most importantly, you will be a proper member of our team. There is no ‘Us and Them’
