Unitemps is our on-campus recruitment agency and is used to coordinate the recruitment and employment of casual workers, including students, across the University. 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.
