Temp Agency London


The fastest and easiest way to find the best staff for your business.


The best bar and restaurant staff for your business, on-demand.

You already have the catering staff agency on speed dial. The hospitality recruitment company is no. 1 in your phone’s ‘favourite contacts’. So why try someone different?


The time. The administration. The headache. When you work in an industry where staff turnover is a fact of life, it’s easy to feel as though you have a full time job in a catering recruitment agency. And even when you have a hospitality agency you use again and again, the time you spend dealing with them is almost always time that could be better spent.


So spend it better.


When you want to hire a chef, bar staff or hospitality staff, cut the hassle and friction of recruitment and cut your workload. Discover Staff Heroes, your virtual hospitality recruitment agency in London.    


What makes our temporary workers Heroes?

Suppose, for a moment, you need to hire a cocktail barman at the last minute for an event you are hosting. What are the steps you would usually take to find them? A job board? Trawling hospitality agencies in London? Calling bar staff you’ve hired previously? Irrespective of the likely success of your efforts, all the above involve time and effort – time and effort you almost certainly don’t have.

Alternatively, you could just look at the Staff Heroes app on your phone.


Talent at your fingertips

It’s like having a catering agency or hospitality recruitment service in your pocket. Choose from a default pool of roles pre-loaded onto the app, or customise and create roles to match your specific requirements. The app will then find you the ideal temporary staff, all available to work the hours you stipulate. And because we carefully vet every Hero you’ll see, you know their talent, experience and eligibility to work in the UK will all be as it should.


Every hour covered

One of the reasons our Staff Heroes love what we do is because we give them a way of fitting work around the lives and commitments. As an employer, that gives you certainty and clarity too – because if you are recruiting chefs or looking to hire a barman, you know that every Hero who appears on the app is available to work when you need them.


As temporary as you need

A single shift. A couple of weeks to cover leave. An ad hoc but ongoing arrangement. The Staff Heroes app lets you find a single Hero for a single role, or save your most trusted Heroes and book them again whenever you wish.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big

Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group

"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful

Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd

"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!
