Temporary PA and Secretarial Recruitment Agency London

Alice and Hetty Bain and Gray focus on getting to know you as an individual, where you want to go with your career and your experience and try our hardest to make this happen tapping into your talent and employment requirements.

Working as a temp is a brilliant way of exploring different job opportunities, positions and industries. It’s also great for making your work life fit around your personal life. Whether you are looking to temp until you find your next permanent position, looking for a long term temp assignment or even looking to earn some extra money during university holidays or around studies, then we can help.  Temping also works well around other jobs, for example, a number of our regular temps have other work that they fit temping around, this includes acting, tutoring, running a small business and other contract work.

We always want you to enjoy what you’re doing, so we’ll only ever place you on assignments that are right for you based on your experience, skills and availability. We also try wherever possible to put you back with companies who are hiring, where you have worked before, so you have consistency and continuity with your temp work.  When you’re on assignment with us, we are your employer; which means you’ll be well looked employment. We are responsible for the entire employment process, from paying you, to dealing with legislative requirements, benefits and keeping in touch with you and the company you’re working for to make sure you’re both happy. 

We have pride in finding you the best job hiring opportunities with some of the leading organisations in and around London, whether it's 1 day, 1 week, 3 weeks or 3 months, we have a variety of bookings and temp jobs.  Whatever suits you for your next employment position, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you think temping is an option for you, whether as an EA, Secretary, PA, Receptionist, Office Manager, Office Assistant, Team Assistant, Team Co-ordinator, HR Assistant or Administrator.
