Dear colleagues, I would like to remind you that if you intend to recruit and employ casual workers (including students) to work for the University, you must process this through the Unitemps agency.

Unitemps helps colleagues to hire all casual workers for up to thirteen weeks. Following seven work breaches reported to the Home Office a temporary cessation on the employment of international students was imposed and it is only with the sole use of Unitemps that this can be lifted.
