Shift work is no deterrent

Prince Personnel have announced the latest winner of their Temp of the Quarter Award – and it’s someone who’s not afraid of putting in a shift.

Christine Croft is this quarter’s top candidate and she’s currently in a temporary position as a part-time administrator with an IT equipment provider in Telford. She’s now hoping her success will lead to a permanent contract with the same company in the longer term.

Initially the IT company was concerned that finding the right candidate would be difficult as the post involves slightly unsociable shifts. But Prince Personnel were not deterred, and by finding Christine for the role, the client believes they really have struck gold.

Line Manager Kate Bowden said: “I’m amazed and in awe at how pleasant, loveable, hardworking and enthusiastic Christine is.

“During the last couple of months, Christine has happily worked extra hours and helped out in the company’s recent expansion and opening of a new warehouse – often undertaking menial and mundane tasks when they are required.

“She has earned the respect of not only the staff and management in the short time she worked with us, but also the respect of clients and couriers. We pride ourselves on the level of customer service we provide, and Christine has taken this to a whole new level.”

Prince Personnel’s Temp of the Quarter Award is proving to be extremely popular with some very special recommendations since its launch, and this quarter has been no exception.

Maria Sandford, who runs the recruitment agency from Grosvenor House in Central Park, in Telford, said: “We are once again delighted that so many clients have nominated the candidates selected by our team for this latest award.”

Other nominations that deserve a special mention this time round are:

Jade – a sales administrator at a large manufacturing company in Telford who has already become a “valued member of the sales admin and technical service centre support teams”.

Karen – an accounts assistant at a Telford-based company whose “time keeping, appearance, attitude to work, and willingness to help has been first class.”
