The Temporary Staffing Service is a one-stop shop for managers with a temporary staffing need, providing a rapid and efficient service to fill vacancies with the right people.

Our Admin and Clerical team can find the right candidate for you from our pool of highly qualified workers and will work with you throughout the process to ensure that you get the right person to meet your needs. They will also be on hand throughout the assignment to deal with any questions that may come up.

Our Casual, Academic and Guest (CAG) team will work with you to place your chosen worker, guest or colleague in role. We will deal with the administration relating to registration, contract and payments for you, and will liaise with you throughout the process to ensure that the assignment runs smoothly. The team will be on hand throughout the assignment to deal with any questions you may have.

The TSS also manages all University contact with external temporary staffing agencies. If you require an agency temp, we will liaise with agencies on your behalf and ensure that you get the right person for the role.

UoB students working on temporary/casual assignments. Students can apply to work via the TSS, subject to the following restrictions: Undergraduate students cannot work more than 15 hours per week in term-time, PG taught students cannot work more than 20 hours per week in term-time, and PG research students cannot work more than 20 hours per week throughout the year. International students who hold a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK are subject to working restrictions imposed by the UKVI (UK Visas & Immigration). The permission to work, or lack thereof, is evident on the student’s visa vignette in their passport or on their Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card. The TSS will assess all students right to work and document it appropriately. Students will not become eligible for assignments that would permit working beyond their UKVI permission. More information on Tier 4 working is available here.

Future services

In the future, the TSS will expand to cover Residential and Hospitality Services, Estates and Professional Services.
