    This agency finds every way to make money from you. Even if you have a valid CRB, they will try to get you to pay for a new CRB for a 6 week contract and will add an extra £10 to the actual cost of a CRB and claim that is the correct price.

    They will then invoice the client for an amount higher than what they are paying you. For instance if they pay you £12 they will put on the invoice to the client that you are paid £13 an hour so they can make an extra cut on top of what they already get.

    They use an external payroll provider who will also take a cut from your earnings as their administrative cost and if JJ Fox submit your timesheet late they will then deduct another £43 from your pay as an admin cost to fastrack your pay, even if you have not asked them to fastrack your pay.

    Basically the agency and their payroll provider will find every way to rip you and the client off.

    Great service – lots of contact to ensure you are happy in post and to keep you updated. They haven’t always necessarily got work if you are a niche subject like me but will make a strong effort to carve out opportunities for you.

    Great personal service. I have a p/t short-term contract which may even become longer term. My contact kept me informed about everything right from the start and made sure all my questions were answered promptly. The pay could be a bit better, but I am very happy with the school and the hours there.

    I joined jjFox about a year ago but there was silence from them after that. A month ago, they range up to arrange an interview at a school, and gave the time of the interview, which was two hours late. jjFox phoned me up asking if I could be at the school earlier, but I still arrived too late. The school were hoping to see two candidates from jjFox, both of which were told the wrong time. The agency was unapologetic, blaming the school.

    Useless.

    JJFox put me in the worst school ever! After listening to what I was looking for an promising that they could provide they sent me to a horrible school and simply laughed when I called the office after my day of work. I would never deal with them again or believe what they say.

    I have worked with JJFox for a year and I am very happy with the service provided by the agency as well as the staff. Nick my contact at JJFox has been very honest and very helpfull every time I have had an issue(timesheet, payment). He even dealt with ISS regarding my timesheet and invoices when I started.
    Since I have registered with JJFox I haven’t worked with any other agency.They have always provided me with long term- FT positions.
    I will recomand JJFox as a very good and very relaible agency with great atitudes,understandable and easy to work with staff, particular Nick my contact there.

    I have worked for a number of agencies some of which I am still in contact with. So far jjFOX have been the only agency who haven’t given you false hope of a permanent job and are always honest with you. So far I am working at an amazing school for which Hannah has secured me the position. The first day I worked in the current school, I had a text from Hannah asking how things went and whether or not I was happy. If I have a problem, Hannah has always listened to me and acted on things that I have said getting me the position I was looking for. The time sheets are very easy to use and should make being paid a lot easier. That said however, there was a problem with me being paid in the first instance and I did have to pay ISS an extra £20 to get the money on the correct pay date. There was a delay in jjFOX transferring the money to them – so i’m told by ISS. Other than that I would highly recommend jjFOX and feel secure in working for them.

    I have worked as a teacher for many years now and after deciding that I was wanting to be working less I made the decision to finish my full time position and work on a part time basis. I registered with a number of agencies and still am in contact with a few. My current position is proving to be the perfect role for me, giving me the time to enjoy spending more time with my family but still giving me enough time to be teaching in a very reputable Secondary School in East London. My consultant at jjFOX took time to listen to exactly what I was looking for and rather than try and push me into other roles that were available, they consulted me on what they had and a discussion about each role took place. Within 3 weeks my current role came up and after my consultant speaking to the school, I had an interviewed lined up and was soon offered the position.

    I came to London from Ireland in 2009 and since then jjFOX have been my preferred agency.

    I still do a bit of work through another agency when I’m available, but jjFOX have usually found me good roles of at least a half-term duration, and always teaching my subject, which is what I want to be doing.

    Since working through them I’ve always been in contact with the same guy, which makes a change from some other agencies who seem to have a different person working every week!

    They are honest and easy to speak to, and I’ve recommended them to a few friends and ex-colleagues and, by and large, they have all got work through jjFOX pretty quickly as well.

    I get paid a bit more through my other agency, but the fact that jjFOX give me longer contracts means I’m still better off through them at the moment.

    I have worked for 7 agencies over the past 14 years, jjFOX is without doubt the best. I only ever get long contracts with them which means I don’t have to be waiting at the end of my phone every morning. If they don’t have work they tell me, the honesty is quite refreshing.

    I have worked for a number of agencies over the past 5 years on day to day supply and longer term cover. I have found the staff at jjFOX to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable along with finding me the roles that I want rather than try and push me into any old role. I receive regular updates and although i am registered with another suppy agency, I always prefer the work that jjFOX secure for me. Pay rates are very competitive and they use online time sheets which are quick and easy to use meaning no hold ups in me getting paid…always a bonus! All in all, highly recommend them
