Fun, if you like fast paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This is precision electrical work. You will find it very stressful if you are not good with your hands. They provide "training" but it really isn't enough.


Early off on fridays

If you can help it don’t work for these!Blanket-rule inside ir35! But treat you like a contractor.No rights contract. They provide no uniform or tooling.They balls wages up then shift the blame.Provide very little support.




Uniform, tooling, support, rates of pay

Perfect but just a number

I worked with them more for one year. They are correct and i can say that, they tried to sort out everything. Although the agency tried to do everything, the workplace was not correct.

interesting 442 refreshment project

it was nice to see that stores and precurement was very well organised, availability of consumables and tooling required for the job, friendly management and colleagues, with a safe place to store your personal tooling without the worry of anything being stolen.

Very professional organisation.

Great Agency to work for on short contracts. The staff are very firendly and proffessional. Getting in contact is easy and simple, and you always get a reply. Overall Shorterm is a professional organisation.

Just be careful

Shorterm are really a useless recruitment agency their pay varied holidays are ment to be working time directive but that was on your contracted hours which nobody understood why not even those in their account department. If you left them a message nobody would get back to you. The only thing that was good working for this recruitment was the people I worked with.


Paid all the way through the shift

Ok with the work they provide

Difficult to progress as any attempt to move on within their networks were blocked so as not to upset the companies that they provide for. was blocked for interviews until I left my full time employment, this made it very difficult to progress so do be careful guys


Lots of work available


Known to block CVs if they conflict with the company they provide for
