Here at Supertemps we’re a busy bunch.
Between placements and interviews, the team always find the time to get involved with activities to support our local community or raise funds for nationwide charity causes. Supertemps is committed to making a positive impact on the people, communities and economy we serve and our employees go above and beyond to help us achieve that.
In the last year alone our employees have walked over hot coals, supported local talent and entrepreneurial spirit for the launch of a local music festival, volunteered for the RSPCA, belly danced for Breast Cancer and helped Santa meet the local children…..it’s a surprise they’ve got anytime left at all!
With this in mind we’ve put together a collection of ‘Supertemps Gives Back’ stories from 2015-2016, to celebrate the philanthropy and community spirit of our amazing team.
The teams at both Supertemps branches got involved in the fundraising activities for this year’s BBC Children in Need. Jodie head out to visit local businesses in Colwyn Bay, laden with cakes and biscuits (in true Supertemps style).
Edward from our Bangor branch and Kate from S2, rallied the help of Ty Menai reception team Claire and Stuart to encourage Ty Menai staff to donate to the cause, offering them tasty treats in return for their generosity.
BBC Children in Need currently supports 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects help children facing a range of disadvantages,such as poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.
With the help of all those who donated, Supertemps raised a total of £70, which can really make a difference to a child in need. More details of exactly how the money is used can be found on the Children in Need website.
There is still time to donate to the cause. Just click HERE for more details.
We recently saw the end of our very first Temporary Workers Week!
After the Superteam went ‘on tour’ with cake fuelled drop in’s, career boosting pop-up shops across the Bay and our One in a Million award ceremony celebrating the very best of temporary workers.
It was an excellent opportunity to catch up with our temps, find out how we can help those looking for work and highlight the diverse range of opportunities available across North Wales.
The Superteam were proud sponsors of the first Gorjys Secrets Festival, which took place in the stunning country estate of Caer Rhun Hall, showcasing some of the finest talent in singer songwriters from around Wales, the UK and beyond, Gorjys Secrets was a beautiful day of music, festivities and family fun.
We’ll be sure to attend next year to enjoy more good music, super people and a Gorjys festival!
Other Worldly Tech Talks - NWTech
Being techies we want to inspire people to engage them in the tech culture of Wales which is why Supertemps sponsor NWTech events like Otherworldly Tech Talks to help do exactly that.
We got the chance to discuss the innovations and inspiring tech developments of the area including:
The future of growing food sustainably from AquaRoots,
How we can visualise 3D models of geospatial data, courtesy of ViziCities
An insight into the tech behind Minecraft by CubeCraftGames,
A review of the Arloesi Gwynedd Wledig (Gwynedd Rural Innovation) Project, discussing the amount of young adults unaware of the potential within the IT sector
Exploring the capabilities of virtual reality thanks to the Futuruim Agency.
These inspirational events are now attracting tech talent from across the North West, as well as encouraging people who may have moved from the area, back home to North Wales.
During this event, Sian from our Specialist Division, also highlighted some interesting labour market trends which are emerging, that both jobseekers and employers should be aware of including the increasing reliance on digital platforms and flexible working.
Sponsoring the Anglesey Agricultural Show this year was a highlight.
The Superteam joined Mon FM for some live radio fun, Gemma got stuck in on the main stage and Ed made sure to grab a pic with the most impressive motor.
It was a bustling celebration of the great variety on offer in our region, set across two days in the beautiful 160 acre Anglesey showground.
It was a real pleasure and we’ll be sure to attend next year.
