News - Inside The Pond

The perfect 'short staff storm' is heading your way

Don’t struggle on half-power: get the resources you need to ride out the storm.


SICK Leave  

From June to August it’s the high season for being laid low by the lurgy. Let's be honest, it's time for staff to get sick and cough into the air con units. The problem is the unpredictability - you never know when illness will strike, or, how long it lasts.

The result? At least one vacant seat in your office, maybe ten. And creative projects grinding to halt.

But don’t stress people: The Pond Agents have your back, and your creative, design or digital studio covered.

If the cold strikes via text at 8am, we can parachute the perfect freelancer into your office right away, and have the empty seat warm by 10am!



From the 10th July for TWO WEEKS it’s the school “bloody” holidays. Great if you are driving across town, but stink if your senior design team are off to Fiji and you are stuck hunting replacements.

Small tip - Think ahead!!! Today, not tomorrow.

Few things warm the cockles of a freelance creative heart more than being booked up well in advance. Plus by getting us in early you’ll give your people the chance to do a proper hand-over and feel confident the job is in good hands.

Call + 09 373 3791 and talk to Leighton, Will, Penny or Celine.
