Temporary Workers (UNITEMPS)

All temporary recruitment services at the University of Surrey have now been taken back in house and are offered via a Unitemps franchise. This enables the University to recruit workers into temporary roles, replacing the previous arrangements with Blue Arrow. Unitemps specialise in the provision of temporary staff for Universities and Commercial clients throughout the UK.

The service uses students, recent graduates and experienced candidates from the local community as our primary candidate base to provide temporary staff across all campus functions and to commercial businesses.

Unitemps combines a ‘student welfare’ ethos with efficient systems and a professional approach.


The Unitemps team are based in room 25LBLG, University of Surrey (next to the LRC, where the old Bookshop was located) Telephone: 01483 684100.
