Temporary Worker, Edinburgh Charity

Fiona and the team at Eden Scott have supported us to find temporary cover at short notice when it’s been needed.

We have been impressed by the temporary candidates Fiona has sent our way and with the support that has been given to source temporary cover while we work to recruit permanently.  Fiona is proactive in her approach and regularly checks in to make sure things are going well, and to catch any potential issues early. 

I have no hesitation in recommending the temporary cover service as an excellent immediate solution.

Business Development Manager

Consulting Engineers

We recently worked with Fiona at Eden Scott to secure a much-needed temporary addition to our staff. 

Fiona was excellent to work with - she is friendly, efficient, professional and got our requirements perfectly.  The temporary person Fiona placed has been a real asset to our business.  We would use Fiona again when looking for temporary staff

Jane Devine

Chief Executive, Foursquare

Fiona has been incredibly helpful to my charity, providing high-quality people at very short notice.

She took time to understand the organisation, but also the culture, and has provided staff that are a good fit. She prepares staff well – not all temporary staff can cope with the ‘everyone get stuck in’ situations that often happen in charities.

Above all though, Fiona is honest and frank and it’s really clear and reassuring that her absolute focus is helping me get good people.

Property Manager

Edinburgh Charity

We use a temp agency regularly to cover sickness and annual leave. We have recently changed to Eden Scott as I was always appreciative of the service I received from Fiona McLeod.

We have used this service twice recently: once for a longer-term temp for our reception and once for a very short-notice, short-term temp for our facilities. Both of these have been to a very high standard. We will continue to use Fiona and Eden Scott for our department's needs for agency staff.

Fantastic service and, in my experience, very good and suitable candidates. Thank you again
