Here's what some of our temporary workers said about their experience of working for TSS:


Communication with TSS was always brilliant and I never felt left in the dark or undervalued, something which is extremely rare in temporary services.  The assignments were well thought out and tailored nicely to specifications talked about in the interview stage.

I will thoroughly recommend TSS to anyone and would always come back to you if I need to find work in the future.

I really enjoyed my time with TSS - you have always been very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. You have always sent me interesting assignments that fit my sometimes odd schedule.

I've had such a great experience with the TSS - everyone is so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable so thank you all so much!

I would like to thank you for the wonderful work you do. As an expat, this service has been invaluable and has allowed me to meet new people, get my foot in the door within an area where I had few connections, and try my hand at a new role. Even though your team is small in numbers, you make a big impact on those you service. So, thank you for everything—I couldn’t have made the move without you and I look forward to seeing what’s to come!

I've been very impressed with the professionalism of the TSS and my assignment.  It has exceeded and surpassed my expectations.
