What is Unitemps?  

Unitemps is a University-owned, campus-based recruitment service which seeks to address the key challenges in higher education, such as employability, compliance and financial limitations. With our heritage firmly grounded in the higher education sector, Unitemps is the ultimate temporary employment    solution, placing candidates from the university and community in temporary and permanent roles within the university and surrounding businesses.  

Unitemps has expanded beyond its initial aim to help students find jobs that fit around their university life, with employment services now extending to job seekers across all profiles. With all revenue earned by Unitemps being reinvested into the university and its facilities, Unitemps is about ‘people,    not profit’, prioritising client experience over sales targets.


Coronavirus Update

If you are a temporary worker currently working for Unitemps and are unable to work due to site closure and cannot work from home then you will not be paid. If you are a temporary worker who has been told by the NHS to self-isolate (because you have symptoms or because you have returned from an infected  area)then you should be able to claim SSP.

We are closely monitoring government guidance for any developments or changes in legislation and will inform the network when these become law. In the meantime we would advise people to follow your University and the NHS's advice and guidance around coronavirus.


We offer a wide range of benefits to employers:

  • Consultation: From writing a bespoke advert, to managing interview availability and preparing candidates
  • Resources: A database of over 5,000 active and enthusiastic candidates with a wide range of skills
  • Experience: We have placed over 2,000 candidates into various roles since April 2017
  • Communications: multi-lingual candidate database
  • Support: payroll management and right to work checks
  • Ethics: A values-based approach with highly competitive costs (our consultants do not earn commission and all our profits go back into the university to fund teaching and research)
