    Working with Remedy Education was honestly the worse experience I have had as far as recruitment agencies go. The amount of work itself was inconsistent and there was no consideration regarding the location you are based in. The rate of pay was lower than they first imply, the personability of the staff was severely lacking, communication was poor, badly worded messages via whatsapp rather than the more professional emails you would expect. Staff are rude, inconsiderate and intrusive. Overall Remedy Education runs a very poor service.

    I had a fantastic experience working with Remedy agency. They were so quick in finding me a placement (my first placement was found in two days!). They also found me a placement the same day my last had been cut short due to the person returning back to work sooner than expected. They went above and beyond even staying past their working hours to ensure my next post was confirmed and that I could start the next day. I found permanent employment with one of their schools and they were so great in supporting me through this process even checking through my contract with me. The team at Remedy are very personably and value each of their agency staff; ensuring each person was well looked after in their posts and were happy in them! They would call before and after my interviews and offering advice, and support.

    In regards to pay I never had an issue with this. I was always paid on time and correctly. I was informed and sent information on the umbrella companies and had the choice of whether I wanted to go under one or not.

    I have recommended them to everyone I know who is looking into working in education and will continue to do so.

    I could not have done it without them! The staff are amazing and go out of their way to help you, and they make sure they send you to schools that match your personality and teaching style. Tracey and Dean were exceptionally brilliant, and they helped me find a school that I absolutely love working in. I could not recommend them more – would still be unemployed if it wasn’t for Remedy!

    I had a really good experience with Tracey and her team. They secured a role/interview for me within the first 2 weeks after I registered and were very supportive throughout the process. They responded very quickly to any issue I had. Top job!

    I have to say that although they have quite a bit of work coming in for my field, I will never take work under Remedy again!

    I had to content with continuously asking for job spec , terms and conditions which I never had and no follow up in terms of how I was getting on in my post from the agent directly dealing with me!

    The agent in question was dishonest about terms of pay, never answered my emails-only when they thought that it would cost them not to answer and overall just plain rude!

    I do not trust them and I would not recommend this agency. I am with a much better more professional agency with much better work, great agent, everything provided and the pay is fantastic! The difference between the two agencies is stark! Contractor beware!

    I’m a science teacher, so finding me work and getting paid should be a ‘no brainer’. However, I worked three contracts for them and EVERY time there was a problem. First, I was booked for an interview which became a ‘working day interview’ and when I arrived there was NO interview and the school thought I was with them for good. Second contract, one day’s pay was not included and when I alerted them it took me nearly TWO months to get the money back. They kept bouncing me back and forth between them and an umbrella company (Nsave). My last contract with them, somehow (and even they don’t know how) they put me with an umbrella company (Nsave) that I had specifically said I did not want to deal with (Nsave had changed their name to ADVANCE5). Also, it took several weeks for me to be paid for an initiation day I did. VERY slow to answer emails and when I called the contact was often out. There’s lots of agencies out there so why go to this one? They can’t even get the basics right.

    In my experience this is the most unprofessional and time-wasting agency I have registered with. They promised the moon and gave nothing in return and they did not have the decency to follow up, despite many messages from the consultant in question to “definitely call you as soon as I hear anything!” I am now registered with a real agency who find me real jobs.

    This has to be one of the most dishonest agencies I have worked for. I would not reccomend wasting your time travelling to Essex to register with them. I was place in a school and was tole it was for a teaching assistant post, however when I got to the school it wasn’t, it was to deal with SEN and EBD childrn throughout the school. Extremely challenging and as a result it didn’t work out. However, the agency do not even have the manners or professionalism to contact me to discuss what went wrong, they have just ignored me. I have since registered with another agency, who seem much better and are actually trying to get me a position I am trained and qualified for.

    This has to be one of the worst Agencies I’ve registered with. They are full of empty promises and when I did work for them, they screwed me over with my pay after insisting that I register with N-Save umbrella. It took me 2 months of phone calls to get my full pay from a guy called [Name], he was so full of it, I’d never recommend them or work for them again. Stay clear of them.

    This is an absolutely rubbish agency. I have registered with them for two years and never had any work from them. Once last year they arranged a supply day only to phone me ten minutes later to say the school had covered internally. 6 month later, this week one of the consultants phoned and booked a supply day for me. Later in the afternoon phoned back and said the day had been cancelled and the school had found cover. The consultant phones me almost everymonth to talk about work but never delivers. I have learnt my lesson and will not entertain him.
