Thinking of using recruitment agencies in Wimbledon during the tennis? Think twice

Strawberries at Wimbledon Tennis Championships

It's that time of year again and Wimbledon is abuzz with excitement as Wimbledon AELT kicks off!

The Championships, Wimbledon, often referred to simply as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis championship in the world, and is generally regarded as the most prestigious. It has taken place at the All England Club in Wimbledon in London since 1877.  One of the four annual Grand Slam tennis events, the others being the Australian, French and US Open, it is steeped in history.

Taking place over a two week period in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Singles Final, always taking place the second Saturday and Sunday respectively. Five major, junior, and invitational events are held each year. Wimbledon has many traditions which includes a strict dress code for competitors, the eating of many, many strawberries and cream by the spectators, and Royal patronage with a dash of top stars such as Cliff Richard.

So what does this mean for Wimbledon businesses?

Typically a massive spike in business over this two week period when businesses can do the same volume of business and revenue as they did in the past three months. This is a welcome surge after the winter months and as the summer season kicks in. However it requires quite fine planning on behalf of local Wimbledon businesses as running out of supplied such as Champagne and strawberries could mean a missed opportunity during this valuable period.

On the staffing front it is also a skilled juggling act to make sure that a business has the capability to staff up and down elastically during this period.

The norm is for businesses to take two types of approach when trying to fill their temp staff needs:

  • Either turn to the more traditional job boards and classifieds such as Gumtree in the month before, or sometimes turning to social groups on Facebook and attract workers with the promise of cash in hand. Not sure what their insurance company would say if there turned out to be issues with the casual worker being untrustworthy or HMRC with the fact a business had circumvented PAYE but a few small businesses are still prepared to take the risk.
  • Alternatively a business might go down the route of using recruitment agencies in Wimbledon. The problem here is that on an ad hoc basis they will be presented with a take it or leave it high rates and variable quality of temp workers and have very little choice

So why should a business use a recruitment agency in Wimbledon?

And this where the question should really be what does a business really want - When looking for a temp staff  recruitment agencies in Wimbledon over the Championship does the following matter:

  • Low cost
  • Your choice
  • Transparency
  • Our service is available 24/7
  • Fast, simple and easy
  • Hassle free

If the answer is yes to one or several then this is why you should consider using the Staff Heroes platform for your temp staffing needs.

Unlike a traditional recruitment agency we empower businesses, giving total control and passing on the saving. What it comes down to is that we don't believe a business should be paying more just to subsidize our employees when we have a fully automated end to end platform.

What's more by the time  business could have called their recruitment agencies in Wimbledon they could have already downloaded our App, created an account which takes two minutes, posted a job and found a match for your requirements whether a chef, kitchen porter, waiter or any of the 70 other hospitality roles we have on our platform.

Even though we're a technology platform we do have a very friendly team behind the scenes working to make sure you are entirely satisfied in the service we provide.
