New to agency work?

Ok, so you want to sign up to an agency to find some work, but are not quite sure how to go about it and what working for an agency actually means? Whether you are looking for permanent or temporary work, we will make it easy for you!

Firstly, we are here to match you and your skills to positions that we have available. If we match you to a specific role, you will be working directly under a temporary contract with Smith & Reed and not for the company you are physically working at.

This means that we need to have some processes in place to make sure you are happy working for us and that our clients are happy with the candidate (you!) that we have supplied.

STEP 1:    REGISTRATION

We will need to see you for an informal chat to discuss how the process works and to complete our simple registration process. You do not need an appointment to register, please just pop in and a consultant will see you. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30am-5.30pm. (Please do not arrive at the office any later than 16:30 to ensure enough time is given for registration process) Unfortunately we cannot offer you any temporary employment before we have met with you and have collected the necessary information, so please ensure that you bring the following with you:

  • Passport (unfortunately photo copies cannot be accepted)
  • OR Birth Certificate (must be the full length version)
  • Proof of National Insurance Number
  • Bank Details (these will only be used once we have found you work in order to pay you!)
  • Name and email addresses of two referees (they can be personal, previous employer or academic)
  • Valid CRB certificate  - if you have one

You can download a copy of our application pack to complete in advance by clicking here

PLEASE NOTE: There is no charge for registering with Smith and Reed.

STEP 2:    MEET YOUR CONSULTANT

You will be allocated a consultant who will work on your behalf to find you suitable positions and who will become your point of contact for any queries that you may have whilst out working.

They will go through your application pack with you and will ask you about your past employment, work experience, qualifications and training. They will be trying to gain an understanding as to what type of work will suit you so try and be as open as possible. We are not here to judge you and all information is treated as confidential.

STEP 3:     STAY IN CONTACT

Once registered it is vital that you stay in contact with your consultant. They may need to contact you at short notice if a job arises so your up to date availability is so important. Additionally if in contract we may need to make a change to your working hours or contract at last minute. Remember even if your ideal job doesn't come up straight away, we can keep you busy with interim work whilst looking for your perfect role. 

Hopefully that helps, all you need to do now is come in and see us and get the registration process rolling.

We look forward to meeting you soon! :)
