Through Platinum Personnel I have had the opportunity to be exposed to different business in Kelowna where I have learned multiple in-house software programs and acquired new skills to remain current with industry trends. Accepting temporary assignments, on behalf of Platinum Personnel, gave me the flexibility to work part-time during my University studies and full-time during peak holiday periods to generate steady income throughout the year. Kelowna can be a difficult place to secure employment and temping has allowed me to build my network, get my foot in the door and choose the environment I want to work in, while I transition to a permanent placement within my career field. I cannot thank Platinum Personnel enough for their ongoing support and all the opportunities that they have provided me with over the years!
I have been an office temp with Platinum Personnel from the beginning, off and on. Doing the skills tests is fabulous because the recruiters know my skill level and abilities. I have been available as my schedule permits with my part-time work and family responsibilities and the ladies at Platinum are very accommodating. They offer a number of different assignments, even when they know that my schedule might not match. The assignments are varied and working with other temps is always fun because they are fabulous.
I have referred many people who are transitioning or looking for something different to contact Platinum Personnel because they have a finger on the pulse of the local job market.
I moved to Kelowna, from Edmonton, in April 2015. Before moving, I had done my research for a reputable placement agency and Platinum Personnel was the place to go. Shortly after my arrival, I was placed with one of their clients to utilize my Administrative and Business Assistant background. I never looked back and thanks to Platinum, I am gainfully employed! The staff at Platinum are professional, friendly and always supportive. No matter what your reason for seeking their assistance, it’s a move in the right direction.”
