well the small army was smaller than expected, one of the promised people went awol so I have dumped him in a huge pile of sh*t as he was neither with me nor where he was working before - obviously decided to take the afternoon off and the step ahead agency are struggling to find me anyone with basic pc skills.

So with that old addage in mind "if you want something done properly do it yourself", I turn to you dear reader for help.

Do you know of anyone who is available for work like RIGHT NOW, based in London willing to temp for circa three weeks *possibly longer* with plenty of overtime thrown in for good measure.

Key attributes include not having a student visa or other visa issues, good command of the english language, basic PC knowledge, willingness to slog their guts out for not a huge amount of money - it pays £6.25 an hour , a brain and a pulse - think I have it all covered :D anyone who is able I can pass our HR details onto - there is a small matter of an interview but if the bulgarians got past that stage then there's really nothing to worry about :P
I'm going to leave this post unlocked until friday in case you want to point people at this to comment at which point I can let anyone who comments know more about the job in hand.

Ideally I need between 5 and 10 people depending on how many the agency manage to find.

edited to add - the work is mainly filing and data entry

You know I could do this job easily, but the stumbling block is a place to stay during the week that doesn't have cats. And, the place has a spare bedroom so I'm not on a couch for 3 weeks. I've checked my FL, and there isn't anyone who fits this criteria. :(

I may have a couple of people to send here - can I just ask where in London it is please? And what's the nature of the work? I don't want to send anyone down to be killing kittens or anything if they expect filing ;) (I'm guessing just data entry/admin?)

Will do :) No worries. I work for an agency (nothing to do with this, so I'm not after the business!) and I know there's a few regulars with no work at the moment, so I'll point them at you and at least you know they're ok as temps can be! ;)

well given that the last lot of temps I was given yesterday were Bulgarian and spoke NO english and couldn't read english either as Bulgarian is written in cyrillic ( I could have cried.......I'm sure I'll find it funny at some point in the future, but am currently tearing my hair out) any help is welcome - thank you

hiya! simon had re-posted for you, so i'm dropping by.

my girlfriend, beth (myspace page ( is currently trying to get out of her waitress job and i'm sure would appreciate a look-in.

she's very competent on a PC and was most recently working in data entry and varied admin support for emap. i also work caledonian road and we both live in camden, she'd pretty much be available (i hope) immediately.

her email is, i'll also ask her to get in contact and send a CV, do you have an email address?
