About Us

People Power Recruitment is the PEOPLE’S recruitment agency! Our biggest company values are our honesty and transparency and the happiness and wellbeing of our temporary workers. We have often heard recruitment agencies described with words such as ‘greedy’, ‘slimy’, ‘money grabbing’, and ‘exploitative’. People Power Recruitment aims to alter the reputation of temporary recruitment. We prefer to hear ourselves described with words such as ‘caring’, ‘honest’, ‘trustworthy’ and ‘helpful’.

We will simply not deal with clients who do not treat our temporary workers in a manner that we deem to be acceptable. People should never dread going to work and we believe that work should be a happy place where workers are rewarded for hard work, dedication and loyalty through fair pay, opportunities and simple praise and nice words.

Where possible, People Power Recruitment does not have a set pay structure. We prefer to negotiate our rates of pay on a job by job basis and we will agree on a pay rate that matches the needs of the worker with the role being performed. Workers who are more experienced and have proven themselves to be reliable, loyal and hard working will receive pay increases.

We believe that clients should be aware of exactly how much money we are paying our staff and how much money we are making out of each placement. We are 100% transparent with all of our charge rates. If a client wants to guarantee a worker who is a perfect fit for their role as well as being trustworthy and reliable, we believe that they should be prepared to pay that worker the wage that they deserve.

This unique pricing structure does not necessarily mean that we are more expensive that other agencies, but it does mean that our clients will know exactly where their money is going and will ensure that our clients are getting the best possible value for their money.

We also like to reduce our margin for high volume bookings and longer term bookings rather than having a set rate as this will encourage our clients to offer us and our workers the higher value bookings.

Another factor that sets us apart from other agencies is our enthusiasm for clients to offer our workers permanent contracts. We are more than happy to encourage our clients to take on any of our workers through a temp to perm agreement with NO FEE at the end of this period.
