The Unitemps Warwick branch is celebrating its 25th birthday this year!
Established in 1997 by the University of Warwick, it was the first Unitemps branch to be opened.
In its 25 years, Unitemps Warwick has helped nearly 50,000 candidates find over 150,000 jobs and supported 3,000 different clients with sourcing candidates for their business.
Lorna Bytheway, Director of Unitemps, said: “I am delighted to be celebrating our 25th year this year, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with such a variety of clients and candidates over this period. We have seen so many changes over the years. As a business we are constantly looking at ways to improve and enhance our service and this is only made possible by having such a passionate and talented team here at Unitemps. We are truly excited to see what the next 25 years bring!”
Since opening its doors, Unitemps has expanded from the University of Warwick to establish offices at 15 other universities in the UK, from the University of Edinburgh through to Canterbury Christ Church University.
The first Unitemps employee, Emma Durrant, began working on-campus at the University of Warwick to provide our services to students – and she is still with us today! Emma now works as our Operations and Compliance Manager, supporting our staff and clients on operational and compliance matters.
During our 25 years, we have been certified against ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, which ensures excellent customer satisfaction and demonstrates our commitment to continually improving our recruitment services. Most recently, Unitemps received a commendation from Worcestershire County Council for its role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 across the West Midlands.
Since Unitemps opened in 1997, we have had the opportunity to place candidates across a variety of exciting employment opportunities.
One of these candidates is Vidhiti Kamdar, an international student who undertook an internship with Oak Foundation, an organisation which aims make the world a safer, fairer and more sustainable place to live.
When talking about their experience with Unitemps, Vidhiti said: “Moving to London and finding work as an international student can be very difficult, especially with an ongoing pandemic and limit to working hours on a student visa. With guidance and mentoring from Unitemps on the application and interview process, I was able to secure a Communications internship with Oak Foundation.
“My colleagues motivate me every day and I truly feel I am part of a greater purpose. I am grateful to Unitemps for recruiting me to this wonderful opportunity.”
Another one of our candidates, Diana Hoholea, was able to contribute to the UK’s efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic by securing a role as a team leader at a testing centre in Worcestershire. Diana said: “The culture is very engaging and nurturing. It’s a friendly environment which allows you to grow and develop your skills. What do I like the most about it? The people! I have felt very welcomed since day one and the support of all the people involved was incredible.”
We are delighted to have been able to provide the Unitemps service to our candidates and clients during the last 25 years and we are excited to continue our work.
