Just out of curiosity, when you work for an employment agency, does the agency take part of your pay? Or do they just charge the client (ie the company you're actually doing the work for)?
I just wondered, because I'm doing temporary work at the moment.

sorry i don't know but i'm thinking of doing temping myself. I just wondered what agency you're with and what sort of work you are doing?

Kind of both - they charge the company you're working for and then pass it on to you, minus a percentage. Heard a commission rate of between 1/4 and 1/3 - surely they've told you what the jobs worth though before you started it?

I think it depends on whicj kind of agency you work for. I am working as a support worker and I am paid 6 pounds per hour which is more then people employed direclty by care homes (they get about 4.95).
