Whilst they are commonplace in businesses that naturally have peak periods, such as engineering, construction and soft services, the games will mean companies unused to contingent workforces will be reliant on them to meet demand.

With this in mind, FRL Recruitment's temps team have been very busy, holding open days in various locations around the South East and Capital and have put together a large pool of fully vetted temporary engineering, soft services, FM, catering a security personnel who are readily available for you.

FRL Recruitment operate a 24 hour service, its simple just ring 0800 242 5695 its a  free phone number, press 1 for Engineering temps and 2 for all the other areas you will then be directed to the relevant member of the temp team who will deploy temporary operatives to your sites.

Businesses planning to use temporary agency workers to cope with a rise in demand during the Olympics must make sure they fully understand the Agency Workers Regulations.

The duration of the games means many workers will only be employed for a few weeks, much less than the 12-week qualifying period. But, the regulations have an impact before the qualifying period expires.

Whilst many larger employers who use temporary agency workers year-round will already have the processes in place to deal with the regulations, those anticipating a high demand purely during the Olympics may fall foul.

Under the regulations there are ‘Day One Rights’, which, unsurprisingly, a temporary agency worker is entitled to from their very first day.

These include access to shared facilities and amenities or services, such as crèches, canteens and transport services, and information on job vacancies. www.frluk.com
