Use a temp to cover sick leave, maternity leave and more

An overview of why businesses commonly need temps, the benefits, the process for booking a temp with us and the type of temp roles we can recruit for you.

We are seeing an increase in demand for temporary staff to backfill positions, cover holiday or sick leave, maternity leave, when they have no headcount and various other business requirements.

Why may you need a temp?

  • Cover for maternity leave
  • To gauge a candidate's potential suitability for a permanent position
  • Cover for annual leave
  • Last minute sick leave cover
  • Additional cover for particularly busy periods of business


The benefits to hiring a temp?

  • We handle all payroll administration including all related queries (tax, p45s etc.)
  • There's no additional hidden costs - the hourly rate is all-inclusive
  • You only pay for actual hours worked
  • Temporary employees don’t affect headcount
  • This method spreads the cost of the temporary candidate over six months and will not affect the management accounts
  • Bank holidays and annual leave are covered by La Crème
  • You're under no obligation to keep any candidate if it is not working out for any reason, or if the work is coming to an end (in line with the Minimum Notice Act)
  • No sickness pay to candidates on agency books
