The trend towards a flexible workforce is driven mostly by the contractual nature of the manufacturing industry, combined with seasonal demands, the temporary workforce plays a permanent role in the operational success of this sector.

In a bid to tackle the high demand for temporary workers, we have developed over 320 networks across the UK, with 10 large business centres and 9 satellite offices.

Our Group candidate database now exceeds 250,000, allowing us to rapidly respond to high volume demands.
