Temporary & Temp-to-Perm

Many companies now use our recruitment advertising service to source temporary workers directly rather than use traditional recruitment agencies. Often we receive assignments just one day before a temporary worker is required and the employer chooses the best candidates on the same day.

The temporary roles we regularly advertise for include:

Customers with ongoing requirements often advertise the same role every month so they have a talent pool they can dip into when required.

The transition to using our service is in part driven by changes in employment legislation; there is now little benefit in paying a premium for agencies when employment liability has shifted totally to the employer.

However, more importantly, we are often significantly cheaper than an agency. For example, a temporary worker paid £8 per hour would cost – with holiday pay and employer’s national insurance – approximately £10.06 per hour. A traditional agency would then charge an additional margin of £3.58 per hour. In this example, by hiring the same temporary worker using Recruitment Genius, you would have recouped our entire £199 advertising charge within just 56 hours. Furthermore, you can employ everyone who responds to your advertisement at no additional fee. Therefore if you took on four temporary workers they would only need to work 14 hours each to cover our advertising cost.

You can also employ a temporary worker on a permanent basis at no extra charge.



The vast majority of our contract positions are for maternity cover. When senior appointments arise due to maternity leave we often see companies replace with internal staff. Therefore maternity cover for most positions tends to be in support roles.


How we help

Advertising for temporary and contract workers is a skill our editorial team is very proficient at. Often we include clear statements that the role is temporary/contract based and requires an immediate start within the job title and advertising copy. This dramatically reduces irrelevant applications.

Unfortunately in today’s modern world people looking online for a job could be looking anywhere. Therefore by advertising on just one or even a few online job sites, you might miss out on a significant majority of candidates.

Thankfully you can be confident that by using Recruitment Genius your job will be advertised on all the UK’s job boards. In total we use up to 2,000 job sites, all for one fixed price.

These can include sites specific to your sector or role.

More importantly, it can also includes well known national sites with specialist recruitment categories like:

  • TotalJobs
  • Jobsite
  • CareerBuilder
  • Monster
  • Fish4Jobs
  • MyJobsGroup
  • Indeed and lots more besides

Advertisements typically last for a full 28 days on every job board and we're the only company that advertises your job on so many sites for so long, giving such great value.

If you have a requirement to advertise on sites not covered by our selection, our media buying team can help. Our buying power means we get improved discounts that you can benefit from.

The details of EVERY applicant that applies via the job sites are immediately available to you in an easy-to-use online dashboard. Everything is in one place to make life simpler and you can share access with colleagues to collaborate and help identify the best applicants.

We also automatically rank the best applications to save you the hassle of sifting through CVs. This immediately makes your job easier and helps you to quickly find the best talent.

We will care for your applicants to ensure they stay engaged and informed. All applicants automatically receive a “thank you” email. We can also redirect applicants to a career portal or send them your application form.

Our unique automated video and telephone screening tool is available so you can see and hear candidates answer your questions without meeting them. Simply ask a series of questions once and we will invite all of your candidates to respond, capturing their response for you to review at your convenience. Immediately you will gain powerful insights as to their suitability. Best of all, it is also included free as part of our unique service.

This leaves you to simply interview and hire as many candidates as you like. There is no limit to the number of accountants you may hire from the applications you receive: our fixed fee really is fixed. We charge per recruitment advertising campaign, not per “head”. (Free recruitment guides and webinars about interviewing and hiring are available.)

Importantly, all applicants are yours. We do not share your applicants with any other customers. Therefore next time you have a similar vacancy we would encourage you to revisit past applications before re-advertising.

We only charge £199 and discounts are available for multiple purchases.

There are no hidden catches or costs. You will never pay any agency fees, placement fees or percentage fees. There are no job board advertising costs, setup fees, or recurring monthly fees. There are also no charges for using our online dashboard which you can access forever free of charge.
