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.

I have been so disappointed by an agency rated so high. They don't even have the courtesy to return a phone call. When asked about it, they just say: "we've been so busy...!" They could have added: "So we ignored you!" :(

I had worked for Randstad in a different capapcity before & found them to be pretty good so thought id sign up for supply with them.I think there can be a big difference from branch to branch but I would not recommend the Manchester branch at all. I did the initial paperwork and paid for the CRB. I kept having to ring to then chase them up about finishing the registering process. A few weeks later after my CRB had come through I was told I would have to wait to be fully registered as they had too many people on their books! So they took my money and never registered me! After a couple of months I gave up and had registered with other agencies, who were pretty horrified with Randstad treatment of me. Having too many ppl registered means they wouldnt have given me much work anyway.My advice: avoid the Manchester branch, there are better agencies out there.

As soon as I was registered with Randstad Education I got work almost every single day. They called me on a regular basis to make sure I was available and actively looking for work for me. The consultants were very personable and seemed to have a genuine interest in the schools and students.

Great service overall. I'm happy with the agency. Quaility of School is out of agency control and a mixed bag. Some good days, some crap day, but that's the way it is. Pay and amount of work is less than it was last year but I gather that's a typical picture now. Loads of teachers have said the same. It's tough going, but if you are flexible you should get enough work to get by. Hope it helps.

Professional and approachable manner, an agency that has actually listened to what I want. I have worked for all the big agencies previously and none of them compare to Randstad. I do not know any other agency that offer so much training and development, and have such a great reputation in the market. I would highly recommendcRandstad Education to anyone!!

The agency seriously left me in tears of frustration. I had to phone them on a daily basis and even then it was near impossible to actually talk to a relevant person. I was almost always told "he or she will call you back as soon as they're off the phone," they never did. They seemed to have far to many people on their books, didn't pay attention to any of my requirements. When I was getting my CRB they initially forgot to send off the paper work so it took three months longer than the usual 6 weeks. Then when I wanted to register with other agencies, they held all my references to hostage and said I would have to pay £60 to get copies of my documents, which would need to be requested in writing and could take 30 days. I asked if I could just come and pick them up instead to make it quicker....which I was able to but still had to pay all of the money for a photocopy of 5 sheets! Unbelievable, I drew a line under it, cut my losses and moved on. Now I can laugh about it but at the time it was very stressful.

Previously I would have described the agency as excellent, unfortunately, the member of staff changed with whom I dealt with, and so did the amount of work - to zero. They mad no attempt to contact me, although I telephoned them weekly, to no avail. Now working pretty much five days a week for a different agency, who are superb - as these used to be.

One office was better than another as the spoke wioth me regularly and were proactive in finding and offering me work...however disappointed with my current office as the consultant did not make much time to spoeak to me or find work and rarely returned my calls or was available when I had time to speak to him during office hours.

I started working with Randstad because the company I came over with was barely getting me work. They have been amazing from the first day, always friendly and professional. They have gotten be 4-5 days of supply per week since I have started with them. I would highly recommend them!

Got nowhere near enough work from this agency and was left struggling financially. They consistently ignored my request for long-term work, instead offering me the odd day of day-to-day about once every half term. The pay could have been worse, but it would have been nice if they'd made more of an effort to get me work. They also insist on you doing a new CRB(even if you've got a fairly recent one from somewhere else) and paying for it yourself!
