IT Temp Agencies

I'm looking for a new job.

I've served my time working for a large financial services organisation (no names, no pack drill), and I want to stop wanking about in Excel and get into a job where I know what I'm doing and can help people. In other words, I'm looking for a proper IT job. Unfortunately, my only commercial experience is the aforementioned wanking about in Excel for financial services companies. That makes finding a new job harder than it should be.

I'm willing and able to do 1st/2nd line tech support, or web/programmer stuff. Anything, really, as long as it's not for a financial services company. Given my lack of useful experience, I figure that temp work is the best way to get said experience.

So, does anyone know of any temp agencies in Edinburgh that specialise in IT work?

I'm already checking a wide range of job sites looking for contract/permanent positions, but Friday's post shows how successful that has been. I've got enough sites to check for proper jobs, this post is specifically for temp agencies.
