We’ve recently placed candidates in a range of roles including hospitality, stewarding, ambassadors, contact centres, tutoring, international relocation, admin and accommodation assistants.

Join our ARU Partnership Project

Become a recognised employment partner of Anglia Ruskin University and join our partnership project.

We have over 2,000 students across our Cambridge and Chelmsford campuses currently looking for paid work experience opportunities relevant to their course of study. If you’ve got a business project or problem you want help with, we can supply a student as a temporary member of staff to help.

Through the ARU Partnership Project we can add real value to your business and promote your company as a recognised partner of ARU Temps. We will also manage recruitment, pre-employment checks and payroll to ensure you’re matched with the perfect candidate with minimal effort and risk to your business.

Temp to Perm

Maybe a temp to perm set up would suit your needs? Hiring a student is cost effective, and lets you see the student in the workplace before you offer them a permanent contract at no additional fee from us (after the qualifying period). By hiring a student you’ll get ahead of other potential employers who might be waiting until the student is available for full time work.

Employment Service

We can handle all your pre-employment checks including Right to Work (checking your candidate has the legal right to work in the UK), payroll, related items such as pensions and all other admin which comes with hiring new staff.
