Human Resources


The Temporary Employment Service (TES) provides temporary workers for departments and institutions across the collegiate University. Our workers typically provide cover for short-term staff absences, peak periods and temporary additional work. We specialise in office support work such as secretarial, administrative, reception, PA and EA and can often assist with cover for other support roles including Library, Museum, IT, finance, marketing and event planning.

Please do explore our website to learn more about TES and do contact us if you have any queries not answered by the website. We can be emailed at

Our office hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

Please note that TES has moved from its previous location in 25 Trumpington Street and is now based in Greenwich House, Madingley Road, Cambridge CB3 0TX. Please note that currently we are not able to receive visitors to the office due to the coronavirus situation.
