How to register a problem with Hays Specialist Recruitment

Step 1

If your problem concerns the service you have received from a local Hays Office, you should contact the local office manager to discuss the problems you have experienced. It is important the local office management team are made aware of your concerns and are given the opportunity to put things right.

If your problem is about an invoice you have received from Hays, in the first instance please contact Hays Recruitment Credit Control Team using the telephone number provided on the invoice. As above, it is important the Credit Control Team are aware of any problems and are given the opportunity to put things right.

If you are a temporary worker and have a problem regarding your payment from Hays please contact Hays Recruitment Payroll Helpline on 0203 727 2977. If the problem cannot be resolved immediately during your telephone call, you will be given a ‘log number’ and will be advised of a timescale in which you will receive further feedback.
