The TSB provides temporary admin/clerical services at short notice

Information for Colleges/Services

Occasionally the Temporary Staff Bank (TSB) receives a high volume of temporary worker requests which may result in a delay in processing your request.

 As a result we ask that all requests are sent to the TSB at least 2 weeks in advance of the assignment's desired start date.

Please be aware that the TSB are only able to provide temporary workers for admin/clerical assignments.

 If you would like to request a temporary worker from the TSB please follow these instructions:

  • Please complete the TR1 Temp Request Form and return to the TSB via email to We are unable to process any requests until this form has been received.
  • Please ensure the form is completed in full, including the eClaims Job Role information at the top and cost code. If you are unsure what to include in this section, please contact the TSB, or Financial Planning and Reporting if it is a cost code query.
  • The TSB will contact you when a suitable temp has been identified.

Please see the TSB/Claims Rates to identify the correct rate at which you should pay your temporary worker. Please be aware that the rate of pay should reflect the work being requested, in line with the salary grading structure.

All temporary assignments should last no longer than 3 months. If an assignment is expected to exceed 3 months you should look to recruit via a Fixed Term Contract using the ESR1 system in conjuction with your Recruitment team lead. Further information can be found here.
