Before you seek a temp, do consider if an existing Brookes student might be able to do some or all of the work. TARGETconnect is a commission free way to source your vacancy need from our own students. Please contact Careers for further information.
The University now has four contracted suppliers for agency staff, one supplier for each Lot (category) of staff which is broken down as follows:
This approach will allow the University to work with approved agencies that are able to meet our specialist needs, whilst the pricing remains competitive. From the 24th August 2015, the below agencies must be used. Only when enquires have been exhausted with the relevant agency can the use of alternative agencies be considered. If this situation occurs, please contact your link HR team to discuss which alternative agencies can be used.
The below accordion indicates which Agency to use for which Lot of staff, as well as the Agency’s supplier number in E5.

Take a look at Sopra Steria’s rate calculator (link - spreadsheet attached to this email) to see what the hourly pay rate and charge rate will be for each grade.
As an employer, it is our duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees. This duty of care also extends to temporary workers we engage through agencies.
Temporary workers engaged through Sopra Steria should complete two online training modules covering Health & Safety in the workplace, and the use of DSE before they start their assignment with Oxford Brookes. There will be a small section of the DSE online training they will need to complete once they have started at Brookes but this will not take much time.
There will be a charge of £25 per person for the provision of this training which the relevant department will be invoiced for. Although there is a cost attached to this training, this arrangement provides a much more cost effective way of ensuring the temporary worker has received the training for which we have a duty of care to provide. By completing the required training before they start their assignment, they will not be required to attend OBU's in house mandatory DSE and Health & Safety courses, resulting in a saving of around 4 hours' pay.
