Why Bailey Employment Services

People come to Bailey Employment Services because we are trusted specialists in what we do.  We have been operating for the past 34 years, supplying staff to the industrial, driving, manufacturing, retail and warehouse & distribution sectors.   Let’s take a look at some more good reasons why you’re in safe hands.

Well, there are over 5,000 clients  we service.  Just consider the variety and choice of work placements open to you.  That includes the days and times you prefer and the length of contract you are happy with.  You can experience many roles and activities before committing to a full-time job that you know you’ll like.  You'll also develop necessary skills along the way and  gain references to help your career in the future. 

Now let’s consider who will be supporting you.  As well as the highly trained consultants who gain a thorough understanding of your needs, you have a quality company, ISO 9001:2015 certificated which pays top rates – often with bonuses – overtime at premium rates and paid holidays.  And that’s straight into your bank account each week giving you complete peace of mind.

Temporary Workers

As a Temporary worker with Bailey Employment Services, you might ask what the experience is really like. 

As you might expect, to begin with we need to get to know you and you need to understand how we work.  We talk about your experience and requirements and, should you join the business, you receive an in-depth briefing to explain your duties and responsibilities whilst working at one of our client's sites. Preparation is all important.

Our ‘take-on’ briefing document has all the information you need for getting started and includes important details covering who to contact, your responsibilities and important procedures such as your contract of employment, time-sheet process, getting paid and rates of pay, health & safety, reporting damaged goods, working time regulations and data protection.  We make sure you are told everything you need to know for your work placement.

There’s a lot to consider but we have it all covered for you.  Take a look at the attached documents for further details.
