Started work in January using the crawley branch. Am really happy with the agency. They cater to my requirements well and whilst I'm on the morning phone call I usually have placements booked in advance. They are professional and actively find placements for me. Contact is good and phone calls/emails always answered promptly.

I've had an overall good experience with Randstad in Crawley. Some lovely schools and reasonable pay rate. Staff in this office have always been helpful and tried to match my availability as much as possible. I would recommend them.

This is my fourth year working for Crawley Ranstad and I am very happy with them. They usually find me the right amount of work per week and, where possible place me in schools I really like. The consultants are cheerful, friendly and helpful.Booking arrangements and pay are handled efficiently.

Would like pay increase when on a long term contract, doing planning, reports, staff meetings as there is no real increment.

I would recommend the Crawley branch of Randstad. I have had more or less as much work as I have wanted, apart from often just before and after holidays. The staff have gone out of their way to get me work and deal with me in a friendly, flexible and professional way. I have also been offered CPD during my time with them. My only quibble is the fact that I get paid significantly less than I would if I was a 'normal' teacher.

I started work for Randstad Education in September and they have kept me busy since then. They got me working quickly and I have not had any issues since!

Always offer me regular work, keep in touch and pay weekly. Ending up with me finding long term work in a school I love.

Recently retired as deputy head and decided to do some supply teaching. I would not recommend this agency to anyone. Summarising briefly (1) Sent to schools who hadn't booked me, no pay, feeling a twit and expenses incurred. (2)Consistently underpaid the agreed booking rate. (3) Mysterious deductions from my pay(theft in effect). The consultant become very nasty when challenged about this. Glib and promising the earth at the interview. When I kept challenging them about their dishonesty re wages -the work dried up. On a more sinister note the company are moving into the NQT market with a huge advert in Guardian education encouraging NQT recruitment. Vast profits to be made here.Working for this outfit would be a very bad move for any NQT. I spoke to a 23 year old primary teacher who had been conned into some guaranteed pay scheme, sent under veiled threats to a dreadful school, has lost her confidence and left the profession. AVOID, AVOID

Randstadt asked me to register with them so I did. Two weeks or so later I contacted them again regarding work and to give them a DBS update. I was told my registration had been “self –suited. ”! When I asked what this meant she said that it was because I had failed to return at half term as I said I would, with an updated second proof of address! I told them that this was not true; they had changed their minds telling me not to come in with the remaining information until my DBS had arrived. The response was to imply that I had not turned up, I was intransigent and how dare I dispute this with her! Shocked, I asked her how we could move on from this but she persisted in being obstructive. The registration process in order for me to acquire work was indirectly refused. I was astonished with her dishonest, high-handed, rude and ruthless attitude and made a complaint through Ronstadt’s parent company. So they can ‘self -suit’ themselves. Sadly, I have another forty agencies calling but thankfully now I have a job in an excellent school.

A dreadful agency. Don't make any effort to find long-term work. The work they have offered to me is way below my professional level. I am a highly qualified teacher, they offer me administrative work! In the few weeks I have been with them, my financial situation has worsened substantially. They agreed to a minimum daily rate, only to state that they couldn't offer work at this rate. If you are new to supply teaching, please think it through! I would not recommend signing up for supply work with this agency.

Great placement shame Ranstad couldn't pay me properly, I have regularly had my weekly pay not processed or over Christmas it was just forgotten about. this week I had an unexplained deduction of £130 from my salary. Never again would I accept work through this company

Been sent on jobs that have been cancelled without my knowledge. If that isn't bad enough they don't pay very well at all (£50pd if you're lucky) and more times than not will send you to schools that you are not properly qualified to teach in simply because they want the money. Lots of work available, but only try them if you're desperate for work....

This used to be my number 1 agency until I had a bad experience with them. I was in one of their schools in Crawley and had a resonable day I thought only to hear that 2 TA's (ine inexperienced had forwarded a detailed account in nit picky details which in professional terms was all over the place. I was paid for the day but the school did not get paid leading to an impasse between us and mutual loss in confidence.

Randstad have got me LOADS of work. Only been one day since I registered (4 months ago) where I haven't had work. The Nottingham branch are very flexible if you need a day off as well as being approachable. The only downside for me is as a Supply TA my rate of pay isn't great and I struggle if there is a school holiday or half-term. Would highly recommend the Randstad Ed. Nottingham branch.

Sent my CV online and applied for jobs in three different boroughs. Had no response. Chased up and sent emails to three different people in agency responsible for those boroughs. Still no response. Waste of time.

I have been working with the Warrington branch for over a year now. It took them over 3 months to get me registered (failing to send out my CRB check, contacting my references, etc.) They did provide me with a steady term time job in my area, but didn't offer me a single job during the whole summer term. Once the term time started, I wanted to return to the steady job but that took weeks and weeks for them to even call the boss and ask if they wanted me back again! Then they lied about the boss wanting me back! When I told them that I had already had a chat with the boss and that she did in fact want me back, it took them just as long to get me started again! They need to seriously work on their communication skills and honesty. Very disappointed in the people there.

The maidstone branch is amazing, they are very friendly down to earth people. they have also helped me find my work locations by sending me texts with bus routes and trains, even down to what stop to stand at. The schools i have been send to have been fantastic and i have loved working with them all. They provide a wide range of schools from nurseies to prooves. They ring you back They are very supportive. They are amazing in maidstone i would recommend them to anyone.

I have been working for Randstad since the end of last year and have to say they need to improve. I currently have issues about being to sent to schools, only to be told there is no booking for me. When I have queried this with Randstad they have commented that it's my fault for not ringing them on my way there! I find they don't communicate with each other in the office; different people phone me when I'm already booked, and they also lie to cover their own backs. I'm in the process of going elsehere as I'm in London and supply agencys are everywhere. I expected more from them as they are meant to be one of the best.
