Lifting of COVID – 19 Safety Restrictions

 Our Approach to Ongoing Safety

Throughout the pandemic, we have focused on making sure that we continue to offer a high level of service to our valued clients and candidates. We have made various adjustments to ensure that business has not been interrupted and we have been grateful that we have continued to thrive and assist many people over the past 16 months, whilst operating in a COVID – 19 safe environment.

As government guidance on COVID – 19 continues to change, with today marking the lifting of almost all restrictions, we wanted to share an update on how we plan to ensure ongoing safety in our offices, with our clients, candidates and essential visitors to the office.

Whilst the easing of restrictions means that some safety measures will no longer be a legal requirement, in line with the government advice to act carefully, we feel that it is important to continue with certain measures to be on the safe side. For now, anyway…

We have made the decision, that whilst cases are still rising in the UK that we will work towards protecting not only our team here at THE Agency,  but also anyone who would be classed as a visitor to our offices, such as candidates, clients and people who would normally just walk in to make an enquiry. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, we will continue to interview candidates using either TEAMS, Facetime or WhatsApp Video.

To protect each other, our staff will continue to carry out twice weekly lateral flow tests to ensure that our commitment towards safety starts at the heart of our business with our own team and we will wear masks in the event that we have essential deliveries to the office – to protect ourselves and the delivery service people who may need to enter our premises. We also have hand sanitiser available and a supply of masks should anyone require such protection.

Meanwhile, please be assured, that our business is open, we are continuing to recruit, offer assistance to candidates, our large temporary workforce and our clients. However, for now… we are just playing on the side of caution …

Meanwhile, on behalf of myself and my team, we hope you and your families are all safe and well..
