  • I would like to say how helpful, understanding of my needs and professional that Alice at Guernsey branch has been to me in helping me find employment since I was made redundant. She never gave up on me, and an email every so often just to say she was still looking for employment for me would give my moral a boost. Alice found me a six month office position which I have really enjoyed and I will certainly go back to OSA next year for helping in finding future employment. Thank you OSA.

  • I have been loyal to The Temp Desk for a while now. In the past I have been signed up to about 5 agencies but this one gets me the most useful interviews and jobs to apply for. You really get the sense that the staff are considering you when they get a new relevant role in. I have had many different types of job in my life, two of the best have come from this agency. I am currently in the most satisfying job I have ever had because it gives me a sense of pride and value. The agents who primarily deal with me are Alice and Poppy.

  • I approached The Temp Desk in August after a short break from work during the summer and not really sure what my long term plans were. Alice was great at listening to what I was after and each of her suggestions was spot-on - far better than some of the other agencies I'd approached in earlier years. I got a placement very quickly and it's proved to be ideal so I have nothing but praise for Alice and the team at The Temp Desk.

  • I turned to OSA/The Temp Desk when I became unemployed after the company I had worked for for 18 years closed down. I found Alice to be extremely friendly and helpful, going out of her way to keep me up to date with possible permanent positions. In the meantime they were able to place me into various temporary posts which were varied and a great experience. Poppy was excellent at making me as an "older candidate" feel at ease. As it turned out the final temporary position I was placed in became a permanent one. I shall miss the contact I had with them but will have no hesitation in turning to them again should the need arise."

  • The Temp Desk/OSA showed the professionalism and drive I expect from a recruitment agency to get THAT special role for an applicant. The Temp Desk/OSA were always there for me and were always helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I am more than happy to recommend The Temp Desk/OSA.

  • I have mainly dealt with Alice but found all staff I have had contact with also very professional, helpful and efficient. In my experience I feel OSA/Temp Desk are the best local recruitment agency with high standards and would definately recommend their services to anyone seeking employment or a career move.

  • I visited the Temp Desk in July of this year and within a couple of weeks they had found me a job with a great company. I can't recommend them highly enough, a very friendly and professional service.

  • My main contact has been Alice but have found all the staff at OSA very professional, helpful and efficient. With my dealings to date with local agencies I have found OSA to be collectively the best team by far who listen and send you job specs that fit your requirements. I highly recommend anyone looking for employment or a career change that OSA in my eyes are the people to speak to first.
  • Alice and the team are really professional, proactive and helpful. They really listen to what type of roles you are after and use feedback to send you roles tailored to your requirements. They placed me in two contract assignments and were always on hand to answer any queries I had. Alice is also very understanding during what can be a stressful time. I would have no doubt in recommending The Tempdesk and OSA to anyone searching for a new temp or permanent position!
  • I have always found OSA and The Temp Desk to be very responsive and professional when attempting to secure candidates against job specifications that I have given to them. The first recruitment agency that I always contact !!

  • The Temp Desk have been fantastic. Following my initial meeting - which allowed me to talk openly and pressure free about what I would like to be doing - I had a job interview... Within just a couple of days! The official deadline for interviews had finished, but as my agent thought I would suit the position and she knew the employer well, she recommended they see me anyway. Luckily they agreed to meet with me, as I now work here on a permanent basis. I would recommend The Temp Desk/OSA above any other employment agency on the island. I had signed up with two other agencies - what a waste of time that was! OSA all the way.

  • Alice has been absolutely fantastic in helping me find temporary work over the last couple of years. I've been to a few different positions and each time the process has been really smooth and efficient. Alice is so positive and always smiling, which really helps! I'd definitely recommend anyone looking for work to use The Temp Desk - I've used a few different employment agencies in Guernsey in the past and The Temp Desk has the best service by far.

  • I write with regard to my recent experience with the Temp Desk in gaining employment here in Guernsey. It was a really efficient and friendly experience working with the Temp Desk. My first job in Guernsey was through the Temp Desk a while ago, so I applied here on my return to the island. I had my first meeting on a Monday with Alice Digard, who was very attentive and clearly very knowledgeable about the employment market here. I received a job offer on the Wednesday and started immediately the following week - what more can I say? I would highly recommend the service, especially having had mixed experiences with other agencies on the island. Good luck to everyone working at, or finding employment through, the Temp Desk or OSA!
