Mike Haslin, Chief Executive Officer at TUCO, The University Caterers Organisation, discusses how to achieve value for money in these unpredictable times
In a busy education environment, demands on teaching, administration and management staff are intense and it’s easy to forget those people in the background who ensure that the classrooms, buildings and grounds are kept in a clean, safe and welcoming condition. Catch 22 has been supplying a temporary workforce service to schools, colleges and universities since 1982 and built its reputation on speed of response and quality of staff.
When support staff are absent for whatever reason, Catch 22 can have help to you in double quick time, whatever the tasks that need completing. We can be there to assist with projects that need additional manpower, either in term-time or during holiday periods.
If you find your team needing caretakers, porters, cleaners, grounds staff, facilities people or maintenance staff, we can offer a complete professional service at value for money prices. Here’s what a few of our happy clients say about the Catch 22 service:
“Catch 22’s service has been outstanding. Great people to work with and have been flexible and accommodating to our needs as a college”
Head of HR – Leeds College of Building
“We have been extremely satisfied with the service from the Catch 22 Team which has always been professional as well as responsive to our needs. Very importantly we always receive a good choice of candidates for the specific roles available.”
Estates & Campus Services Manager – Leeds College of Music
“We have received a highly effective and professional service and have relied upon the dedicated Catch 22 management team to provide quality temporary staff, often at very short notice.”
Senior FM – University of the Arts, London
We service dozens of schools across London, including Westminster School, supplying a wide variety of temporary and contract staff and management. Catch 22 also operates across all sectors, supplying government departments, industry, education and blue chip operations alike. Catch 22 has also been supplying the NHS since our inception and continues to do so under the regulation of the Crown Commercial Service (Non Medical, Non Clinical) Framework. Moreover, for your peace of mind, we are SAFEcontractor accredited and a Registered Body with the Disclosure & Barring Service. All the staff we supply to the education sector are comprehensively vetted and checked to DBS enhanced level.
Our temporary workforce is concentrated in the Greater London and Leeds/Bradford areas. However, Catch 22 can offer the same professional level of service for your permanent recruitment needs across the UK. We focus primarily on the areas of Facilities and Property Management, including technical disciplines and 'hard' services.
