Business Support | Birmingham | 22 Aug 2016
Enjoyable place to work
A typical day at work saw us taking referrals from Job Centre Plus for the work programme, we used to take them for other contracts too, community work placement, flexible support fund and the Nu-Traxx contract, but those all ended recently. We would also send out clients certificates for functional skill qualifications that they would have done in one of our centres as well as booking their tests and registering them for the relevant qualification through City & Guilds' Walled Garden. I have learned a lot of skills in the three and a half years I have been here, administration, customer service and a grasp of the benefit system to name but a few. My co-workers were all from the same background as myself, we were all once on Pertemps' work programme and gained employment through finding the vacancies through our respective employment coaches. I found the hardest part of the job was the lack of support given to us as employees from Pertemps' higher management. The most enjoyable part of the job was changing peoples lives who were in a position I was once in.

Nice place but lonely as an ELC
Company and Management had been great but the W2W Managers had always been trying to undermine all your activities and your job role. Branches slightly work against you then as they know your not managed by their Manager.

Receptionist | Birmingham | 20 Jan 2016
Busy and enjoyable work place
A typical day for me would include, dealing with any enquiries whether this be over the telephone, through email or face to face. I would also be loading applicants on to our system, filing application cards and raising timesheets. At the end of the week I would send out contracts to all our new starters. During my time working with Pertemps I have learned many things, including: how to scan documents, how to fax documents, how to write a formal business-like email, etc. When I first started my job I was inexperienced and was taken on as a Christmas temporary worker, however due to hard work and learning things fast they kept me on and I have now been working for over 2 years as an administration/receptionist. My co-workers have helped my massively with improving all of the skills I have acquired. I would say the hardest part of my job would be when the morning rush occurs and we have over 30+ people in reception and only 2 people dealing with the enquiries so it can get difficult at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new and different people each day and helping them to find a job that's perfect for them.

Receptionist | Birmingham | 30 Jul 2013
Working for Pertemps was a positive experience. The work was varied and rewarding. It provided me with new skills.
I began work at either 8am or 9am depending upon the shift I was required to cover. I was employed on the front line reception desk at the head office and also at a smaller location. I would meet and greet visitors to the company and carried out a variety of administration tasks. I was also responsible for dealing with all incoming and outgoing post and handling telephone calls via the switchboard. At head office I came into contact with management figures and executives who were very helpful. My co-workers were very supportive and were encouraging. I found many aspects of the work hard particularly because I hadn't been in work for a long period prior to my appointment. I enjoyed working as part of a small team at head office and the varied administration tasks.
ProsFriendly working conditions
Consmostly positive

Administrative Assistant | Birmingham | 30 Jun 2013
Enjoyed working for the company
Only lasted a year as it was contract work. Have worked for the company in the past. Met some lovely people there. What I learned there was that it was a face paced environment Typical day at work saw me doing a lot of administrative work. My co-workers were really great to work with. The hardest part of the job was the fact I wasn't doing one thing and the most enjoyable part of the work was feeling valued even though I was only there temporarily. The most enjoyable part of the job was making sure I had got the work done properly and also helping out others when I could
ProsEjoyed working there
ConsOnly lasted a year
