WINNERS OF THE TEMP OF QUARTER
January 2021 - March 2021
JIM LEVIN & ANASTASIOS STEFANIDIS HAVE BEEN AWARDED OUR TEMP(S) OF THE QUARTER AWARD!
We received some amazing nominations for the first quarter of 2021 and are delighted to hear that our temps are doing such a brilliant job, under quite unusual circumstances. As a result of the glowing nominations, we have actually decided to have two ‘Temps of the Quarter’. The nominations received for Jim and Anastasios were absolutely amazing and we felt both deserved this title.
“I would like to nominate Jim Levin for temp of the quarter. Jim has worked in the department for over 2 years. In that time, he has cemented his position within the department as a part of the furniture and I mean that in the best possible way. Academics that he works with are always asking whether he can stay!! He supports our finance administrator and also provides administration support to one of our research groups. Nothing is too much trouble for him, he will always try to seek solutions for problems and issues that come his way, without bothering others. He is resourceful with an especially good level of emotional intelligence and calm disposition, which means that different situations are usually diffused easily. During the current climate he has continue to provide exceptional support remotely and recently has also committed to providing face to face support. He will be going on campus from 12 April in order to assist the department with our deliveries and ensure that essential research equipment can be received and distributed. He is reliable, dependable and above all is a huge asset to the department and I intend to keep him for as long as possible. I would really love for Jim to win this as it would really help to illustrate how well he is thought of by me and the greater team”.

"Tasos has been an outstanding member of the project team, joining at an incredibly busy period for a clinical trial. He's adapted well to his changing role, and handles incoming documents and sample packs from trial volunteers carefully and confidently.
His recruitment team has managed the pressures of the project well, on occasion enrolling up to 75 people to the study on one day. Tasos has become our go-to member of staff for managing complicated document sets, and has helped identify and implement improvements to our processes that make everyone's work that much easier.
Now we're moving to new trial stages, Tasos is showing adaptability and an aptitude for new skills, and is even helping to induct new staff. Thank you to Tasos for all his hard work! "

Leanne popped along (via Teams) to surprise both Jim and Tasos with a £50 voucher and a certificate. Congratulations to you both! We have received some amazing nominations, but as we are sure you will agree, Jim and Tasos are very worthy winners! Working in temporary posts in the midst of a pandemic is not easy and both of our winners have done so with ease and work to an amazingly high standard. Thank you to you both for the hard work you put in and for representing our agency to such a high standard.
Well done to all of our nominees and thank you to our clients for nominating their temps, as without these nominations we could not run this competition. We are now accepting nominations for the second quarter of this year! Watch this space ...
