I received an email from one of the many agencies I have registered with informing me that they had sacked me. I was rather surprised at this as I have never been sacked by an agency before. They normally just leave me on their books.
This is the email they sent me:
We write to confirm that your contract with Nicholas Associates Group Limited has come to an end as:
There has been a change in hirer demand.
Should you wish to appeal the decision to end your contract, this must be done in writing within 5 working days of receipt of this letter. All appeals must be sent to the Compliance Manager, Nicholas Associates Group Limited, Reginald Arthur House, Percy Street, Rotherham, S65 1ED.
Your P45 will follow shortly.
I’m not sure who Nicholas Associates Group Limited are as I have never worked for them, but the email address was from an agency I had done a job for two months ago – a job that the client deemed themselves to be incredibly pleased with my performance.
I asked them to elaborate on what they meant by “There has been a change in hirer demand” and received this rather blunt reply:
All this means is that you are no longer required by the company.
Most of our assignments are temporary.
Hope this helps
Ouch! Well at least that cleared up my question.
