    Redbox has been the best choice I could have made for my teaching in London, without doubt. The warm and friendly team have made my teaching experiences consistently positive, and provided me with such diverse and enjoyable supply and long-term work across 2.5 years. In that time, I’ve very rarely, if ever, been without work when available, and always confident that I was being paid some of the best rates in London. The quality of schools that I’ve been sent to are consistently very good, especially in Tower Hamlets, and it’s always lovely to meet friendly (and equally happy) Redbox staff at different schools. By far, the best quality about this agency is their warm, personable and friendly assistance – they always go out of their way to find the right fit for both supply and long-term work, and with zero pressure unlike with previous agency experience. A massive thanks to Hayley and Loretta in particular, who are always so approachable and willing to help if ever need be. I can’t recommend Redbox highly enough – thank you ladies for all of your wonderful work and support!

    I’m leaving Red Box at the end of this week, to move abroad, having worked for them for two and a half years. I can honestly say I have never been happier working for a company. All of the positive ratings they have on this site are absolutely on point. The company is run by dedicated, professional, understanding and kind people. What more can I say? Thank you Red Box for being the best company I’ve ever worked for.

    Redbox gave me everything I asked for. I am a full time teacher at a school that I longed for and it’s all thanks to this team. As soon as I joined near enough every day I was at work with schools in the borough I asked for. I believe they always had my best interest in mind and were always available and supportive when I needed them. If I decide to return to supply work in the future, Red Box will be the only agency I work for. I can’t complain and can not thank my consultant Hayley enough for her hard work along with the rest of the team.

    For anyone interested about the pay rate, Red box pay very well.

    Hayley, who is my consultant, is really friendly and approachable. They have found me work most days since I have been with them and always within the area I want to work in. Also, they have not yet got a booking wrong, which many other agencies surprisingly do.

    Redbox are a highly efficient and friendly agency to work for. Having worked for a variety of London teaching agencies dating back to 2005, I can honestly say they are the best. I have found that a lot of London teaching agencies are disingenuous, mis-sell roles and apply a great deal of pressure to accept unsuitable roles so they may obtain a fee. Redbox are completely different. They listened to my work preferences and responded by being in contact regularly and by giving me consistent work in schools located within a reasonable distance. When offering work they let you know the school name and location. They also provide detailed instructions for how to find the school and note any crucial things you should know about the school via text. I find this really useful. I enjoy working through Redbox and would highly recommend them to any primary school teacher.

    I signed up with Redbox after taking a few years out of teaching after having my daughter. They have been friendly and helpful from day one. They are up front with pay rates and pay well.
    Redbox really take the time to get to know you and find work that suits your preferred location, year groups and days you are available. On days when I haven’t been available for full days, (due to childcare) they have found half days for me.
    A lot of the schools where they have found work for me, have been within walking distance from my home, saving me on travel costs and also time.
    Whenever I meet other ‘Redbox teachers’ in schools, they always say good things about Redbox also. I would definitely recommend working with them!

    I have worked in London as a primary school supply teacher for around 7 years. Over this time I have registered with and worked through quite a few agencies. To be honest, I’ve often found agencies to be quite ‘slippery’ (to put it politely) about money and sometimes a bit pushy to get me into a role despite my saying it wouldn’t be suitable for me.

    Redbox feels different because they are honest and up front about their rates of pay. Should you take on regular work, your daily rate will automatically increase to reflect the extra workload. The team are good at listening to you and what it is that you’re looking for and they welcome feedback from their teachers about roles and schools. In that past I’ve sometimes been made to feel like a commodity, but the staff at Redbox treat me like a colleague, which I really value.

    Lastly, they find me regular day-to-day supply work that’s incredibly local to me in east London (I can often walk to work in 30 minutes or less) and that’s a definite win in London!

    I’ve worked for Redbox off and on since 2013. When I wanted a permanent placement, they were diligent in finding me one. Since I have wanted to work day-to-day supply, they have been flexible – even when I wanted to go travelling for a term! I rated 9/10 on pay, because I think the umbrella company that manages the payroll takes too much of what I earn – but that said, I’m not sure what alternatives are out there. 9/10 on quality of schools because I’m a tough critic… That said, Redbox were supportive when I let them know I wasn’t comfortable in a school.

    It could be a tough lot being a supply teacher, but it doesn’t feel like that with Redbox. I feel supported, worked with and respected. So thanks!

    Fantastic agency. After trialling a few other agencies and having little luck finding regular supply work, I tried red box after a friend of mine recommended them to me. Since I started in September, I have not been out of work.

    The office team are extremely helpful and organised and I always feel I am ‘in the loop’ when it comes down to my school bookings.

    I have worked through various agencies over the years as a Teaching Assistant and Teacher and I have found Red Box to be easily the best agency I’ve worked for.

    From word go, when I was still in Australia looking for work in London I was impressed with their speedy replies to any queries, as well as how friendly and helpful they were.

    A few other things that have impressed me have been –

    They have always been completely transparent regarding rates of pay.

    I have never felt pressured into taking work that I did not want.

    They have been able to find me long term and day to day work as when I have needed it.

    They seem to do their best to match me with schools that are in a reasonable travelling distance from home.

    I have found that I have always been able to have an open and honest conversation with all the staff and that they seem to always have the time to listen and if there is ever any issue that needs resolving, it is dealt with promptly.

    Would highly recommend joining Red Box if you are looking for day to day or long term supply teaching in London.

    Dear Disappointed,

    Many Thanks for taking the time to write your review, we take feedback very seriously. Sue has not been involved with the day to day running of Red Box for many months now, so we assume your experience with Red Box was some time ago. Myself and Katy are now running Red Box and have been since January 2016, please forward any correspondence that you weren’t happy with to myself at Loretta@Redboxteachers.com and I will be more than happy to look into the situation for you.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    I had a disappointing experience at this agency.Sue tries to come across as very friendly, even putting kisses at the end of correspondence, which I personally found unprofessional and not showing the appropriate boundary between employer and employee. Her true colours showed through when she offered me work which I accepted, then changed the school so I declined as the school wasn’t one I wanted to work at. Her response was dictatorial and far from the earlier insincere kisses at the end of correspondence.
    I agree with Mix Spice’s review below and I’m rather sceptical of some of the reviews on here.

    Redbox was an incredibly supportive and helpful agency for me during my time as a supply teacher in London. Their pay is one of the best in London, and they were always understanding and accommodating to my wants as a teacher. Without them, I never would have been able to find my dream school! The team is friendly and lovely to speak with – thanks so much Redbox!

    Red box is an incredible agency. After just two week of working for them they found the perfect school that suited me to start a full time position in September. The pay rate is the best I have found and all the woman who work there are exceptional at there job and so kind and considerate. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for day to day supply or full time positions. Thanks red box for everything you have done for me!

    This agency has been AMAZING! I had joined with other agencies prior to Red Box, but they did not get me enough work and we’re quite dismissive.

    The people at Red Box work tirelessly to help get you work that fits around your life and specialisms. My interview with Hayley really reassured me, as I’ve recently relocated to London after 8 years at my previous job, and by that same afternoon I had a weeks work as well as a trial day that has developed into a years PPA cover with booster work. I’m still dumbfounded as it has happened so fast.

    Karen and Hayley are fantastic and make you feel like you matter, as opposed to just being a resource that is dispatched. The agency definitely has a warm, family feel. The people at Red Box genuinely care.

    If you want an excellent agency that listens, gets the work you want and makes you feel so at ease; then you won’t find a better agency than Red Box!!

    I have been working with Redbox for around three months now and my experience with the team has been amazing so far.

    They are very humble and that shines through, the moment you speak to them. They take very good care of us and are always there to listen. You can call or text them and be sure to have an answer. I still remember talking to Karen via email and she made the whole process so easy, without making anything difficult. I cannot fault anyone in the team they are all so genuine and very down to earth.

    Its very hard to find people who really care about you, and Redbox definitely invest their time in you.

    So far, I have been given schools that are very close to home making everyday that little bit easier. I am currently working in a school that I am very happy with as commuting to work is a dream because the local underground station is minutes away from the school.

    I am very happy with the rate of pay. If you are considering Redbox, don’t be put off by the umbrella company as the take home pay will be fair. Just make sure you look at margins etc between the different companies and choose one which suits you best.

    The amount of work of course will vary depending upon your availability. But before you know it someone from the team will give you a call and you’ll be off to work.

    I can promise you Redbox will be an amazing choice, you will not regret it.

    I am very proud to be part of the Redbox family, and can assure anyone considering Rebox, that once you become a team member you’ll be very happy. There is nothing to lose!

    Good luck with your teaching career!

    Started working with Redbox my very first day teaching in London and have been with them ever since. Do not have a bad word to say about the agency and their lovely friendly staff. Have not missed a day teaching when I have been available and the ease of bookings, directions and guidance you receive from everyone at Redbox makes the whole process stress free.

    You really feel like you matter when working with the Redbox staff and not just another name on their books.

    Anyone looking at making the move over to the UK or looking at changing from you current agency I highly recommend Redbox and the great team behind it!

    RedBox really has a tonne of work. Even with my background in secondary schools, they welcomed me to their roster and found me work everyday. They even worked hard to find me long term positions that would match my experiences. Their booking system with text messages is super efficient. Special thanks to Emma Tilley who was my primary contact. My only regret is that I did not have an opportunity to meet the RedBox staff in person, due to the location of the agency office.

    What a joy to work with the best agency in London. Redbox had more work than I could handle. Every single day they texted me with updates on schools to work with. After only 1 day at a school I was offered permanent work. I frequently had block bookings of 1 or 2 weeks work in the same school.
    Redbox pay £10-£15 more than their rivals. Hayley, Katy and Sue were really friendly to work with. The owner Sue is lovely and we had some good chats on the phone after school. The text service where they text you exact directions of where to go is great. If you put in the effort to go wherever you are sent initially, then you will be rewarded with lots of work. I am a UK teacher trained in the UK. Another reviewer is right in thinking this agency has a boutique feel about it- excellent customer service and also a great choice of schools on their books.

    Simply put, I cannot recommend the wonderfully supportive and personable staff at Red Box highly enough. After working previously through another teaching agency in London, I can say without a doubt that Red Box’s friendly and professional manner is genuine and second to none. I have been consistently pleased with the schools I’ve been sent to on supply, and have felt welcomed, valued and settled in other schools for longer-term positions too. Every member of staff I’ve been in touch with possesses the same terrific attention to detail, helpfulness and efficiency – such a breath of fresh air and so valuable when moving from overseas as I did. Their amazing team have been supportive and understanding at all points, including though illness and moving back to Australia for a period of time. I felt compelled to make the switch to Red Box after hearing positive things from other supply teachers – and am so grateful that I did. THE best teaching agency in London, hands down – very highly recommended! Thank you so much to this incredible team for helping me to find my feet, living and loving teaching in London!

    I’m delighted to be able to recommend and say, thank you, to all at Redbox for welcoming me into their family some 18 months ago. I relocated to London from Oxford to enable my wife to pursue her career and liked Redbox from the very beginning of my time with them.

    I love the feeling of being ‘connected’ and working alongside others (which isn’t always easy to achieve as a supply teacher) but Redbox came through and provided a team which not only got me out to work, but also I felt, included me in the mission.

    Things don’t always go to plan, however, and so when my wife’s cancer took over our lives Redbox understood perfectly what I had to do…

    My wife has since died and now I am relaunching myself back into the other love of my life – teaching. Redbox have been with me all the way – thank you.

They have helped with every step of the way for teaching in the U.K and I started working the week after I arrived here, having work the whole time.

    When I first came over to London in January of 2014 I was with another agency. However my experience with them wasn’t the greatest and a couple of the other Canadian teachers I met through that agency started to switch over to Redbox. I made the switch to Redbox September of that year and stayed with them until my work visa expired in January of 2016. They are a great agency to work for and I enjoyed my time at the school I was placed in. Many thanks to Redbox for making my teaching experience in London worthwhile.

    Redbox is a recruitment agency that truly understands the importance of the relationship between the supply teacher and the agency. Unlike other agencies who play a numbers game with supply – the more teachers they have in the field is more money for them, Redbox puts supply before profit.

    Also as someone with a lifelong illness (crohn’s disease) it is crucial that any work environment I am in understands this and the possibilities. Redbox most definitely meets this criteria.

    I highly recommend this agency to all who are interested in supply work.

    In my opinion Redbox is by far the most superior teaching agency of them all. Over the past three months I have joined three other agencies. Redbox is the 4th agency I have joined.
    The staff are helpful, friendly and efficient. They have the personal touch, it’s almost a bespoke service. Sue is amazing, she knows the schools very well and she listens to your wants and needs, she is honest and very personable Although I have not had any day to day supply yet (I only joined 5 days ago), I have had an interview for a long term position already! The only teaching agency I would recommend to a fellow teacher now or in the future would be Redbox.

    I have been with Redbox for 7 and a half months, and I can 100% honestly say the that the team have been nothing but amazing to me! They are all so personable, friendly and highly efficient in everything they do. Moving overseas is a huge deal, and commencing work in a new city can feel a little overwhelming & daunting at first, but all the ladies at Redbox have been nothing but supportive of me, have found me consistent work at beautiful schools & given me great longer term employment opportunities which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I know I can always call them and have a chat, which is such a nice feeling to have that relationship.

    I worked for Redbox for 2.5 years while I lived in London and I can honestly say they were my favourite agency. Once I signed up with them, I pretty much stopped working for any other recruiters. Excellent rates of pay, kept me very busy and (unlike other agencies), everything was very straight forward and I’ve never encountered any problems.
    10 out of 10, lovely people, can’t recommend them enough.

    Redbox has been my first agency to work for and they are fantastic. I really like their personal touch- the staff are very friendly, respond quickly and are supportive. Most of the time I am pre-booked which makes it easy and most schools have been a short journey away.

    Starting with a new agency can be daunting but Red Box has been great for me since I joined them. I’ve never wanted for work and they’re always quick and friendly when replying to emails and texts. While going into schools is never easy for the first time, they make it as easy as possible for you and are very organised. If I’ve ever had a problem they’ve been brilliant to talk to me about it, no matter how small.I can’t reccommend them enough.

    Last year I joined a few supply agencies as I wanted to keep my options open and get as much work as possible. Some agencies pay differs from school to school, I was sent miles away some days travelling up to 2 hours (always arriving late as I would get a call at around 8am) and it always seemed to be my fault that I rocked up late even though the agency knew where I lived and how long it would take!!

    I was referred to Red Box by a teacher I met and decided to give them a go. Just to say I do not need to work with any other agencies, Red Box always have work for me. They are consistent with my pay, are mindful of where I live and are efficient with my bookings. I highly rate and recommend this agency

The whole red box team is amazing and very helpful. Red box the best angecy that I have ever work with. I would recommend Red box to anyone who is looking to work where they want to work, because they will find the right working environment for you.

They work really hard to get you the kind of work that suits your skills and age group and whether you are looking for short/long term etc. They pay better than other agencies and having established a relationship with you they are supportive and loyal. I have been with other agencies but Red Box definitely comes out on top!

    I worked with them for all of the 2014/15 school year before returning to Aus.
    They were hard working at getting me work, and all I needed to do was let them know a week in advance how many days of the week I was available and they would set it up.
    London has some tough areas and therefore some tough schools, no matter where you go. Majority of the schools I loved teaching at, and the challenging ones actually made me into a way better teacher.
    Redbox pays well (which you really need in London), are personable and try to get as much work for you as possible.

    After working with some excellent supply agencies for years (Vision Teaching and Academics), I read the reviews of RED Box and thought I would give them a try. BIGGEST MISTAKE!

    Where do I begin?
    • Not clear on daily and long term rate – there were discrepancies with the agency themselves
    • Coerced into day trials for long term roles although stated categorically that it was not a role I was interested in
    • Sent to a school although I initially declined the role – “keep an open mind” sent to the school for a day trial
    • Secured a post for me without even discussing final rates with the school – to my embarrassment turned up for the job only to be told that they would not be able to pay the rates that was discussed although RED BOX verbally agreed the rates to me for that role
    • Unprofessional and the staff was rude, stand offish when I was put into the awkward position and I felt totally disregarded when I turned to them to discuss the situation and seek their assistance

    I have never felt so used and let down but thankfully I have had other agencies that DO KNOW PROFESSIONALISM and are able to cater for my specific professional needs and now I VALUE them so much more! I will NEVER RED BOX ever AGAIN! They may pay better but you sure short get a raw deal with them!

    My professional advice is to stay with agencies that meet YOUR NEEDS rather than RED BOX who are more about YOU MEETING THEIR NEEDS!

    The pay is great and their communication/contact is 100% professional, always friendly and readily open for follow up/progress chats. I am a secondary teacher but I choose to stay with Redbox (who specialise in Primary schools) because I enjoy working with them so much!

    I feel valued and respected Professional when it comes to Redbox, (unlike other agencies where you are just a number and a name, used to make/meet targets!)

    It’s no lie! Red Box IS the BEST teaching agency here in London. I was one of those people who, unfortunately, joined the ‘wrong’ teaching agency in the beginning. Overworked and underpaid, my life was miserable a.k.a. I had no work-life balance. Luckily, a friend told me about Red Box. I went to this website, checked the reviews and like Homer Simpson, I smacked myself in the forehead (D’oh!) for not having joined this agency in the first place. Sue and her wonderful colleagues have given me work EVERYDAY since the day I joined. I do day-to-day supply (I worked FT before) and I absolutely love it since I get to travel to places I haven’t been to! The primary schools I’ve worked with so far are great. The pay is generous compared to other agencies and I am happy to report that I finally got that once-elusive thing called ‘work-life balance.’ ^_^

    Having worked for many years in a school that always uses Red Box teachers, I have known and seen first hand,the high standards and professionalism that Red Box always deliver in their staff. It was this ‘inside knowledge’ that made my decision to leave full time teaching and become a Supply teacher with Red Box a very easy one! I have been amazed and humbled at how fantastic Red Box have been in helping me with the transition. I have already had a long term placement and several day-to-day teaching jobs since starting with the team in September and have never had a day without work yet! For me, the big, BIG star for Red Box is how kind and caring they are. The team always make time for you and you receive their full support whenever you need them. The pay is excellent, I am getting to see new schools and work with a wide range of teachers and children and I love it!

    I found this agency by luck. I was trying to register with another agency, who, to say the least took a very long time to get a reference letalone work. I called up redbox on a Monday, they arranged a meeting on the Tuesday, told me all the things that I had to take with me for the interview, and was very helpful. I went to the interview on the Wednesday, they were all really nice people, who all took an interest in what I was saying. whilste I was there sue called up one of the schools that she wors with. she then came ovet to me and said she had got me a job for tomorrow. so after four weeks of messing around (without pay) with this other agency, after a few minutes of being with red box I already had a job. the pay is great, more than I expected, and if I ever have a problem I can call or email them, and they always get back to me withtin a few minutes.

    I would always recommend red box to people.

I have gotten as much work as I have wanted, and they have many very nice schools. You also tend to go back to the same schools more often than my experience from previous agency, which is great.

    I honestly do not give any agency such a rating like this lightly. I have had experience with 4 agencies and am currently with 3, so feel quite qualified to evaluate experiences with any of them. I quite enjoy being a free agent with choices (as you can probably tell by the number of agencies I have experience with) and yet am about to sign on a guaranteed plan with RedBox. They are indeed the best agency I have worked with! Red Box not only have great people in their office (Sue, Katie, Emma), but they offer the best rate of pay immediately. They have also been most consistent with having schools I have completely enjoy going to. There will always be a few tough ones, but there really aren’t any issues with the ones I have gone to through RB. I have never felt shunted aside or like a pawn with them – as some of the other agencies can make you feel. They are always asking for (and giving) feedback, and considerate of places you would like to return to. After I first came overseas with another agency, and the (horrible) position in a distant rural town that my first agency had placed me in didn`t work out, they dropped me like a hot potato with no support. Thankfully Red Box was 1 of 2 agencies I had signed up with before I had gotten that fulltime position, and they have been giving me steady work since I moved to London!

    It was through this site that I became aware of Red Box and chose to join them because of the amount of consistently good comments they received. It is a shame that some commenters choose to downgrade a company with little valid reason, and remain anonymous. I have not regretted joining Red Box in the least, and as an overseas teacher who has experienced what some might consider agency horror stories, I can easily say that Red Box is an agency you can depend on.

    I didn’t mean to write an essay or make it sound like an advertisement – but between teaching persuasive writing today and really really appreciating the ladies in Red Box, this is the result. After the comments that have brought this Canadian girl here, I most definitely must contribute as well and say the hype is true! Enjoy your adventures 😉

    Redbox are amazing! I wanted to teach supply rather than full time but was nervous about making the shift from a full time contract. I applied to lots of agencies but red box were incredibly quick at setting up a meeting and providing work the next day. They did not compromise on professionalism and went through the necessary ‘box ticking’ processes in an organised, systematic and easy manner. Redbox have the personal touch and are dedicated to providing fair working conditions for their staff. I feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled across their agency!

    Don’t bother going to any other agency!! The team at Red Box are the most amazing, friendly and supportive people who have helped make my teaching experience in London an extremely positive one! They have provided me with daily work in lovely schools-and don’t send me back to ones that I think are too far from home. They only ever place me in my requested year levels (Nursery to Y2) which I am so grateful for as these are my year levels of expertise. So do yourself a favour and contact Sue and her team if you wish to have a positive teaching experience in London!!! You will not regret it!

    This is my third time back to London teaching and the third teaching agency I have been with. I can definitely say that Red Box is without a doubt the best agency I have worked for. I always get enough notice for work and the pay is one of the highest rates. I have had work everyday since I joined the agency. Sue and the rest of the team look after you and make the effort to make sure you are happy. They even stay on the phone to you and direct you if you get lost on your way to school in the morning!!!! Whether you are looking for supply teaching or a contract I would highly recommend Red Box!!!!

    I have been working through Red Box for 6 months now and they have been nothing short of fantastic! I consistently get work five days a week and on the majority of occasions find out where I will be at least the night before. The staff are very helpful and friendly offering a personal experience and the pay is good too! I definitely recommend Red Box to anyone wishing to teach in London.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I searched high and low for an agency I could trust before I arrived in London. Thankfully through an Internet search, a telephone call, and a picturesque train ride (all within two days), I found the delightful, charming, charismatic, and professional Sue, and the team of beautiful Red Box employees nestled in a warm office in London.

    Nearly a year later, I am proud to say that Red Box has become one of my best friends in London. They pay me handsomely (better than any other agency I’ve heard of). They provide me with plenty of varied work and challenges which will enrich my C.V. (from nursery all the way to the Year 6s to all the diversified experiences you can think of). They send me to quality schools which are bursting with culture, laughter, and students eager to learn. They treat me like a real asset to their company. They are 100% honest, and will tell me if I get it wrong, and a lovely pat on the back when I get it right.

    Overall, I could not ask for a more passionate, hardworking and professional organisation, who will do everything they can to ensure I have a memorable experience in London.

    This is in response to the posting left today by ‘Anon’. I have been with RedBox for more than 2 years and I am happy to actually put my name along with my comment. They ARE a very good agency. I have been teaching for 18 years and If I wasn’t happy with them I would go elsewhere – there is plenty of competition. Teaching in the UK isn’t easy, and I’m not sure what you were expecting when you came here Anon. I personally have NEVER felt like they treat me like a number. As for the survival of the fittest – well aren’t all occupations like that? If a person has a good attitude, works hard and is good at what they do, a school is likely to want them back. Not everyone is going to fit well into every school and I’m sure that just as there are schools that we don’t like, there will be schools that may not like us. Don’t take it personally, don’t blame RedBox and be brave enough to stand up and be counted, rather than hide behind Anon.

    I was initially going to come to London to teach with another agency. After months and months of trying to contact them about when I should arrive and where I would be teaching, receiving limited response and poor communication, I decided to do some research and found Red Box.
    I contacted them hoping I would get a response soon because they sounded like a fantastic agency. I received a response the next day! Less than a month later, I was in London and teaching. The week I arrived they got me work and were there every step of the way, supporting me in my transition to London life (moving across continents is no mean feat but you can be assured that the wonderful ladies at Red Box will do everything they can to help).
    All you really need to know is that Red Box will treat you like family. They always have YOUR interests at heart. It’s really saying something when you know every single person you work for and communicate with them regularly. Because they take the time to know you, they do their best to place you in schools where you will fit in and feel comfortable. They never make you travel too far and are ALWAYS on YOUR side.
    Best agency in the country.

    After working with another agency for the past 3 years, I made the wise decision to start working with Red Box this year and couldn’t be happier. Sue and everyone at Red Box have been really supportive with everything from the very first time that I contacted them.

    This school year has been really fantastic. The majority of the time I know which school I’m working at a week in advance rather than a few minutes before the start of the day. The schools that I’ve been working at have been wonderful and I’m more than happy to go back to any of them. It also doesn’t hurt that the pay rate is much better than any other agency that I’ve been in contact with since being in London.

    I can’t thank Sue and everyone at Red Box enough.

    I honestly can’t rate Red Box any higher, they have been fantastic. I was a little wary when I signed up, as I was looking for TA work, and wasn’t sure how much work was going to be available. I needn’t have worried, as 2 days after I finished my registration, I was offered a post in a year 2 class till July, which I accepted in a heartbeat. The school is brilliant, and I’m really happy there.

    One of the best things about Red Box is their staff. Unlike other agencies I’ve worked for, they are very personable, and are a pleasure to work for. Brilliant agency!

    I’m very surprised to see negative comments on red box as they really are the best agency in London. I know them as both a recruiter of supply staff and now a member of their agency staff. The information and guidance I was given as a new supply teacher was outstanding. This agency really does go the extra mile with its staff. The schools (for me mainly tower hamlets ) are great, really friendly and well organised. Sue keeps me informed of placements and gives really good feedback. This is a small agency and that means they know all their teachers well; that means placements have all been appropriate. They deserve very high ratings. Don’t believe the negative comments.

    Redbox is the only agency I’ve been with in London, but I can recommend them unequivocally. I was a bit nervous about supply teaching, but Sue’s warmth and professionalism gave me confidence that my needs were being looked after.

    I was looking for a long term position, and within a week, she had found me two possible schools (and was very understanding when I explained that one of them was not 100% what I was looking for). After three weeks of regular supply work, I am joining a school I am proud to be a part of- and I’m a tough critic! Many, many thanks to Sue and Katy- I’d recommend you to anyone who is thinking of supply teaching in London.

    It is really simple to rate RedBox: they are fantastic!
    Honestly, they have provided a continual stream of work and I’ve not had to fret whether work will be coming up.
    They have even given me guaranteed pay for certain days or weeks because they are so confident of providing work- and obviously to also tie my availability down; it is an enticing incentive- it works.
    The staff are all involved, and I hear from all of them through phone calls and emails and text messages to support the development of work/availability. Contact is very personable.
    The schools I have worked with through RedBox are great. I haven’t experienced a bad school, they’re all well managed and staff have been friendly and supportive.
    The journey to Shepperton to finalise working for RedBox is worth it.

    They are very personable and make you feel relaxed and at ease. They also do follow up calls just to make sure you are ok. This is a big bonus especially when you are all alone in London struggling to find your feet.

    I would defiantly recommend them.

I receive text messages for every assignment that explains how to locate the school.
    The pay rates at Red Box are considerably higher than other agencies that I have registered with in the past, and I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for better paid teaching jobs. Now that I have found this agency there’s no looking back.

    First and foremost, Join Red Box now if you haven’t already done so. I’m usually not one to offer or recommend services, but Sue and her team are second to none when it comes to teaching agencies in London.

    Having taught for 5 years in London, then teaching back in Australia for 12 months, I was reluctant in joining an agency after my only other agency experience, being back in 2007. I thought I’d be seen as just another asset to be used but Sue erased any of my doubts with being personable, honest and just doing the ‘little things’ to make me feel comfortable, that other companies (not just teaching agencies), so often forget.

    First impressions do go a long way. Once I registered with Red Box in January, Sue not only told me what time the next train was to get home, but offered, then insisted to drive me to the station. It might not sound like a big deal, but this was just one of many examples of feeling like I was working ‘with a team’, not working ‘for a company’.

    As for the schools? Since joining Red Box, I’ve had consistent work at quality schools. If there was an opportunity to stay at a particular school for future block work, the team would always try and most times succeed at having me return to further build a good rapport with both staff and students.

    Additionally, if a school was located too far from my location, Red Box would be more than understanding and would accommodate accordingly.

    They also provide great communication with clear and detailed instructions with text messaging and are also available to chat after school hours for feedback and any other general inquires.

    I could go on and on but any prospective teachers looking for a decent agency to work with, for a good start or restart to teaching in London, need not look any further.

    Being a recent grad from a Canadian teacher’s college, I was bombarded with various teaching agencies in London begging new teachers to come over and work for them. RED BOX DOES NOT OPERATE LIKE THIS. They simply believe in quality over quantity, which is extremely evident once you learn more about the agency. The team is built around a handful of amazing individuals who are the most friendly, understanding, patient and kind people I have ever worked for. They always supply enough work, and are extremely flexible with your schedule. They work with schools that are almost all located in the same area of London, so getting to school is never a hassle/long journey (if you choose to live in East London). They are absolutely wonderful at finding long term work that YOU want to do, and the pay for supply and long term has never been an issue. I worked with another agency prior to Red Box, and could not believe how much more Red Box was willing to pay me and how perfect their GPS contracts are. Red Box is the one agency in London who never “forgets to mention” loop holes with contracts or tells you to “read the fine print” if you have an issue with your pay/contract. They are extremely up front and have nothing to hide because they truly are the best in London!

The quality of schools I have been to is high and the agency work hard to meet your preferences (something my other agency failed to do). The information about the school received through text message is very helpful. I am so happy with this agency and recommend others to register aswell!!

    I joined Red Box Teaching Agency after I felt that my needs were not being met by my previous agency. Wow! I should have changed sooner! I have never felt more comfortable and at ease with an employer. They are all so personable and I truly feel they care for my well-being! I have not gone a day without work, and I get paid much better than what I did with my old agency!
    Totally would recommend them…they are simply the best! :)

    I’ve worked with the RB for only a few months but they’ve been great. They usually text me with the address of the school and directions which I like far more than annoying calls in the morning. Their manner is always warm, polite and professional. I’ve been registered with many agencies, most of which were useless but I can’t say the same about RB. And they always send me to nice schools and pay well!

    I have been working with Redbox since the beginning of the Term. I had originally joined three agencies but have chose to only work with Redbox as the girls who work for them are professional yet approachable and answer any questions I may have. The schools I have been to have all been really lovely and the rate of pay is really good. I would highly recommend Redbox to anyone wanting to work in Primary Schools as I have had work everyday since joining and they have been supportive and helpful since day one.

    I would highly recommend the team at Redbox to anyone looking to work in the Primary Teaching field. Not only are they extremely professional in their way of business, but they are also make important personal connections through their dealings with their clients. The schools they send you to are great, the notice (also extremely important) is usually with plenty of notice to avoid a morning stress and rush. And the pay is the best that i have heard from any other agency. Personal dealings with Sue and Katy have made my current teaching experience in London an extremely enjoyable one, and i am sure it will continue to stay that way.

    I am upset that i didn’t join them first when i came over.

    Keep up the good work guys,

    Thanks,
    Tim

    The REDBOX team is amazing! From the moment I decided I wanted to come and work in the UK they helped me through the process and answered all my questions promptly. Once having my initial interview they clearly explained all the requirements and had me feeling confident to start work in the UK. I have been so happy with the amount of work I have received and their text message instructions are super clear and helpful. They make you feel valued and are easy to contact and quick to respond. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to teach in London to work with REDBOX xx

    I only joined Red Box in Sept (2012) and through them, I landed a job at one of the local schools in Tower Hamlets. They’ve been super supportive and they really catered to my needs. It was a privilege to have worked under this agency. I’ve never met most of them in person but I learnt to love these ladies just by communicating over the phone/email. They’ve been really kind and generous. You’d think they wouldn’t offer you more work if you said to ‘no’ to one job but they do which is why I can’t thank them enough. Top agency! :)

    If you are looking for an agency, Red Box are the best in the business. I joined with Red Box in February this year. I was with 3 other agencies and I was fairly sick of the lies they told. Joining Red Box was EASY! I spoke to Sue, went for a meeting with Katy and had work from them within a couple of days. I have continued to have work with them every single day since then. Sue is professional, honest and makes you feel valued. They ring to see how you are and don’t bother you with annoying irrelevant phone calls like other agencies. It just seems that nothing is a problem for them and they have it all right. They send a text message with easy directions and I usually know where I am in advance so I get to the school on time. The schools they send me to are amazing and the children are well behaved. If there is a school you don’t like, they won’t send you back there again. What can I say, Red Box rock. You won’t need to join any other agency as they will get you plenty of work. Thanks Red Box for making my career in London an absolute pleasure.

I have met lovely people like Sue, Loretta, and Katy. I’ve never come cross such a wonderful people. The rate of pay is higher than other agencies that I have worked for. I can’t put into words how great they are for me especially Sue and also red box team. They are BEST agency. They deserve to be the number one agency in the UK. They are honest trustworthy, helpful and friendly agency.
    They help newcomers whose experiences are limit and are very supportive toward them. Thank you so much for finding me long term position and fixing my CV. I can’t tell how happy I’m. I would recommend any new teacher and TA’S to sign with Red Box! Sue you are amazing!

    I wish I had known about Red Box sooner! This is by far the best agency I have worked for. Sue, Katy, Loretta and Leah really made me feel welcome and they have been supportive since the day I have joined the agency. I have been offered work everyday. They appeciate what works well for me and have placed me in some wonderful schools around my area, putting me in Key Stages which I feel most comfortable teaching in.

    I have returned to the same schools several times which is great as you really get to know the teaching staff too. The world of supply teaching can be a lonely place, so to get the opportunity to return to the same schools can really make all the difference! The rate of pay is higher than other agencies I have worked for and they can negotiate an even higher rate of pay for long term assignments. The Red Box team really do work hard and deserve all the praise they receive, other agencies don’t compare!

And only after a short while I know I won’t regret my decision. The girls on the redbox team have been helpful, polite, organised and are all extremely easy to get along with!

Red Box requires hard work in diverse schools, and they reward their teachers with higher rates of pay and loads of support. They are there with answers to any questions and they have kept me working as much as I wanted. I cannot imagine a better agency, and they certainly come through with their promises.

    To all of the supply teachers out there, who feel forgotten, and who may be thinking of giving up on teaching, look no further! It is a battle sometimes to join agencies and to actually get regular work but Redbox Teachers is the best agency I have worked with. It actually feels like you are part of a family and that they look out for you. Sue and Katy and let’s not forget Loretta, do work hard to find me decent work for a very good rate. Since i have started working for Redbox, I feel valued at last and my hard work makes sense. Say no to those gloomy days and embrace the chance of working with a heart warming team!

    I feel very blessed to have come across red box. I had been doing supply teaching through another agency previously but am now loyal to red box, as they not only have great schools, they are honest and unlike other agency’s, there is no secrecy or huge variances between peoples pay. The lovely ladies Sue, Loretta and Katy are wonderful to communicate with and I really appreciate all their hard work in finding me lovely schools to work at. There is definately no problem with a lack of work.
    So if you have just moved over or are with another agency, you will defiantly be very happy in making the choice of red box. Highly reccomended!

    With being new to supply work, I had all the common anxieties-“Will I get work?” being a big one. However, Redbox, always put me at ease, with being honest and straight forward with me. Even through the holidays, I was emailing Sue, asking about any work that had potentially come in, I’d always get a reply, and a kind one at that, that wasn’t simply brushing me off.
    I’ve heard from most agencies that September is a slow starter for supply work, luckily, I’ve had pretty consistent work. Nevertheless, Redbox, were always honest, expressing that it might be a quiet period, but it doesn’t mean that I won’t get work. As it turns out, I’ve had a few solid assignments with them, one being at a lovely school, for a week, just after the holidays-what a way to start the new term! Schools also seem to have close ties with Redbox, and re-use their recruits-self explanatory really!
    I feel in safe hands with Redbox, and like a valued member of their supply pool, and not just a body. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had good experiences with the ‘big’ agencies, but knowing that you can always have contact with the consultant that you origanally met at interview, is somehow reassuring!

    After working for another teaching agency, I was directed to Redbox. I began working with Redbox starting with day to day supply, which was accommodated brilliantly. Each day before school had finished, Redbox had already provided me with work for the following day. The schools that I worked at were all really friendly, easy to find (with directions from Redbox), children generally well behaved and there was no fussing about with time sheets needing to be signed at the end of the day.

    I have now been in a permanent position with Redbox for 9 months at a wonderful school, I was looking for a permanent position in October and in less than 2 weeks they had found me the position I was looking for. Redbox has been the best agency I have worked for, for the 2 years that I have lived in London.

    A friendly, efficient and helpful team led by Sue, who have a good reputation throughout London with a number of excellent schools. They have been very good at trying to sort out the best schools and positions for me – very accommodating. Whenever I have made special requests they have catered for these with absolutely no fuss whatsoever and to the benefit of me! I think Redbox gives the highest rate of pay out of all of the top teaching agencies and if you do longer placements they try to get you a higher rate too. They are very positive and are there for you to talk to about how the work is going, which is a fantastic support network to have. There are loads of opportunities for longer-term placements in schools or you can choose to do day-to-day supply, whichever one suits you and Redbox are excellent at finding jobs to suit you. Whenever you bump in to fellow Redbox teachers and TAs in schools- of which there seem to be many, everyone only has positive things to say about the team at Redbox.

    I have worked for Red Box since arriving in London in November 2011. I have had 2-3 days without work during this time (and only in first and last weeks of term has this happened). I’ve worked in both day to day supply and longer term contracts (and there are plenty of offers of long term jobs if this interests you).
    My experience with Red Box schools has been excellent, I’ve never been sent to an awful school and most of the schools I have worked at have been in the Tower Hamlets Borough which is well funded with great resources and support available. I’ve also been fortunate enough to be sent to the same few schools which is great and allowed me to build relationships with the school and students.
    I find the whole team at Red Box a pleasure to deal with, they are incredibly friendly, flexible and professional. They are warm and approachable and have always catered for any special requests I have had with no fuss! Every supply teacher I have ran into has has nothing but praise for Sue, Loretta and Katy (and Cary for your behind the scenes work!)

    I have recently switch from ANZUK to Redbox, and the difference between the two is vast. The staff at Redbox actually work to make things happen, are honest about what they can provide you and usually go way beyond that! The schools are lovely, pay is more competitive that the big companies and they treat you with respect and show a genuine interest in your teaching experiences in London. Completely the opposite of ANZUK and I would not go back to the latter..

    I really don’t know how Red Box could be any better. They clearly take their relationships with teachers and schools very seriously and it pays off – I haven’t met anyone who has anything but praise for them. They always know who you are when you call in, and they really do listen to your requests/preferences. I came back to teaching from several years away and with the help of Sue, Loretta and Katy it has been hugely fun and much less stressful than I had expected!

    I have worked for a couple other agencies since arriving in London, but since I have joined RedBox, Ive not needed to find other work elsewhere. RedBox has provided an excellent service that is super friendly and professional with guaranteed pay at rates you cannot find at any other agency. They are very efficient, the staff are very approachable, and when dealing with any issues that may come along, whether personal or professional, they will be your best go-to’s for sound advice, experience, understanding and support. Big thanks to Sue, Loretta and Katy for consistently and continually finding day-to-day supply and long term opportunities at quality schools for me. Contact this agency now – You wont regret it – RedBox is top of the line.

    This agency is the just the best. Firstly, everyone is really friends and professional and try their best to find schools that suit your strengths. Their rate of pay is more than other agencies and they offer guarantee pay, something which I’ve never come across before. More than anything they are great at finding you work.

    My experience with Sue and her team at Redbox has been positive from the word go. When the team there tell you that every communication is handled with a sense of urgency they mean it. Once I got through the interview and completed the paperwork, I was being considered for not one but two positions – very impressive. Additionally, I must say something about the human element of this agency; I have found Sue and the other ladies quite unpretentious, considerate and kind – just the type of people you want deal with if it’s going to be on an extended basis. Sue has got amazing professional judgement has no doubt served her well. I wholehearted recommend Redbox to any teacher or teaching assistant looking for long-term or daily supply work.

    Red Box are an incredible teaching agency that I hold in great esteem due to their very down-to-earth personable approach and efficiency in ensuring your individual needs are met.

    I have had a really positive experience working for Red Box and what really sets them apart from other agencies is that you can actually trust the company you work for, as they are indeed a support network, they are proactive in finding work that best suits you and are receptive to feedback and warmly invite it.

    I’m now working in a full time position with Red Box, who specifically sourced this role for me, and I’m very grateful because I’m having such a rewarding experience in my new position at one of their high quality schools. I only found out about Red Box through a fellow supply teacher recommending I check this website out – so do yourself a favour and join the bandwagon with teaching possibilities that are almost limitless and an employer success rating that speaks for itself!

    I left an agency that I had been with for over 2 years to join RedBox because I had heard good things about them – and they are all true! They are a small agency and they feel much more personal. They are very friendly and efficient and I have had as much work as I wanted since joining them 4 months ago. I like the fact that you don’t have to fill out timesheets at the end of a job. They have lots of schools in Tower Hamlets – and as that is where I live – things have worked out perfectly. Thank you Sue, Katy and Loretta (and anyone else I havn’t spoken to yet). Keep up the good work!

    Having had poor experiences with other agencies in terms of amount of work offered, I am delighted with Red Box, who have kept me busy since September. I really appreciate the feedback I get about the job I do and, I am usually booked ahead which is preferable to those early morning last minute calls. They always text the best travel route and have even called me back at times to say that so and so line is not running and given me an alternative way to get to the school. It is a terrific agency.

    RED BOX TEACHER RECRUITMENT is without doubt the best supply teaching agency. I have worked with Sue and her team for years and will continue to do so. Red box teacher recruitment has a thorough vetting system resulting in the best teachers being part of an elite team. Usually that would mean exclusive and impersonal. This is complete the opposite at Red Box. The agency supports us on every level to perform our job to the highest standard and we are rewarded with great schools and repeat callbacks. Whenever I have a question Sue,Loretta and Katy are available to assist.
    I recommend this agency to all teachers especially Antipodeans ‘just off the jet’ready to embrace the London experience.

    This is an outstanding agency which cares for the needs of the individual teachers it has on its books. I can only say JOIN! Sue takes great care to match teachers to their preferences and the schools i have been in have largely been wonderful. She has now secured me a long term appointment from which the agency stands to make no substantial financial gains. They truly worked on my behalf. They are fantastic! They make you feel like you matter.

    Red Box were the second agency I joined and by far the best. I have not worked a day with any other agency since joining them. They are efficient, friendly and offer a great rate of pay.

    I worked for an agency 2 years ago when I came to the UK they were okay but not great and when I left the agency I never even got an email to say good luck which annoyed me. I have just left a permanent position and gone back to scary world of supply. Sue and her team have been a dream to work for!! I have only been with them three weeks and have worked 5 days last week and this. The only day I had to wait for a call was monday mornings the rest is prebooked. Also if you are sick and cant work you just have to text them and not feel bad about it! Also no timesheets which is a bonus and the rate of pay is by far the highest!! Def recommend them to anyone so are such lovely people to work for!!!!

    100 % happy with the agency hence why I have never needed or wanted to join up with any others. Moving abroad was an extremely daunting experience and it was comforting knowing Sue and the team were there and that the employment side of things was completely taken care of.

    The the success of Redbox lies in their integrity and genuine desire to cater to my needs and the needs of their clients, therefore ensuring that everyone is happy! This makes Redbox a shining example for other agencies to follow

    The previous reviews are all very well. I was promised work with Red Box, all set to go, in the mean time was offered another position and turned it down, only to discover that the position I was offered at registration suddenly no longer existed.
