Hiring temps in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a thriving city, the second strongest economy in the UK after London, with close to 20,000 businesses registered. Its attractiveness is demonstrated by how fast its population has grown over the past ten years: +12.5%, vs. 5% for the rest of Scotland. If you’re a local business looking to expand your workforce temporarily, TempaGoGo can help you find great recruitment agencies in Edinburgh, able to find temporary workers even at short notice.

Full time workers in Edinburgh can expect to earn around £30,700 per annum which is very high for the country - only Londoners can expect higher median full time salary. This in turn allows Edinburgh to attract a higher proportion of highly skilled workers (39%, greater than in London at 35%).

The capital of Scotland, historically the seat of the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh benefits from a very strong financial sector, particularly in insurance and asset management, with companies such as the Royal Bank of Scotland, Tesco Bank, TSB Bank, Scottish Widows and Standard Life Aberdeen headquartered in the city. 9.9% of the employed population in Edinburgh was employed in the Finance and Insurance sector, which is surprisingly higher than London, at 7.1%! More than £500bn assets are under management in the city.

Edinburgh has also a thriving health and life science sector, which represents 15% of all jobs in the city. Edinburgh BioQuarter, a leading medical research facility in Europe, is home to more than 2,000 researchers, while in 2020, the Centre for Regenerative Medicine will form the largest cluster of stem cell scientists in Europe. GSK, Merck, Janssen, Eurofins, Dexcom, among others, have established a base in the city.

Its technology sector has boomed in recent years, and it was considered the UK’s fastest growing tech hub in 2017. Edinburgh was the birth place of Skyscanner and is home to one of Amazon Development Centres.

Famous for its culture, its UNESCO world heritage sites (Edinburgh old and new town) and events (the Edinburgh International Festival, the Fringe), Edinburgh’s economy is also boosted by its tourism, with 4 million visitors every year.

Edinburgh benefits from very high rates of employment, at 77%, much higher than the average in Scotland (74.1%) or the rest of Great Britain (75.1%), with very low rates of unemployment (4.0%). This means that finding permanent employees can be difficult. If you want help finding temporary staff, TempaGoGo is here to help you find vetted recruitment agencies in Edinburgh, matched to your needs.
