We look forward to future celebrations of the service, temps and hiring managers!

Unitemps of The Year Awards – Winner’s Testimonial

“During my time as a student at City, University of London Unitemps has played a crucial role in my career development as it helped me discover and benefit from interesting and exciting work opportunities. As a result I expanded my network of contacts, gained valuable skills and supported myself financially as a student. After I spend almost 3 years working for City via Unitemps as a student ambassador working for a number of departments, I managed to secure a permanent position in Marketing and Communications.  The opportunity I had to improve my skills and explore different aspects of the University are helping me tremendously in the full-time position I am right now.

Registering with Unitemps is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I could not recommend enough to all City students and external candidates. Being presented with the Unitemp of the Year award is a great honour and a positive recognition for my commitment and hard work throughout the years. I am very grateful for the all the support that I received from my previous hiring managers and the Unitemps team without whom I would not be where I am today.”
