TARA are a fabulous team who really go above and beyond. I feel valued and cared for as an individual, with my needs always being taken into consideration. I couldn't imagine how they could do any more! Signing with TARA has been the best decision I have made in a long while!

I couldn't speak more highly of the staff at TARA, they have always handled any of my queries or concerns with complete professionalism. Unlike some agencies, they are not all 'sales like' in their approach. Sure they want to get you out to work but they really do seem to care for both their teachers and the schools they work with. I would recommend them anytime....and often do!

I started working for Tara in the middle of September and I've never been happier. The staff are professional, efficient and easy to talk to. It is clear to see that if you have any queries, no matter how small it may be, they will endeavour to resolve it straightaway. I have worked for a few agencies now and I have to say that Tara is definitely the best that I have worked with to date. I have mainly talked to Lesley who I get on with so well and I really appreciate everything that she has done for me so far. I can't praised her enough. She always comes back to me if I have left a query with her even at 7:00am one morning, as soon as she started her shift! That means a lot. It's like talking to a friend. I have also spoken to Laura a few times and she is just the same. Tara is blessed to have you both! I hope that I will be able to work with them way beyond my current assignment! I would completely recommend Tara to anyone who is interested in working as a Supply Teacher.

Tara has helped me settle into the flexible working life of a supply teacher over the last 10 months. Taking the leap from a full-time role with responsibility to this way of working was scary, but has proved to aid my work/life balance. Laura Beetlestone helped me with my initial enquiry about supply work in a way that was refreshing, informative and made me feel I would be part of an exciting organisation helping schools and importantly students. Since the start I have had two long term roles where I have received regular feedback from Rachel James and the team and asked about how the jobs are going. Payroll always process my timesheets in a timely manner. Rate of pay is always communicated. Tara have good compliance checks on Safeguarding and that teachers have the necessary proof to comply. Laura Hadebe has helped with sourcing CPD opportunities. Pre my one year anniversary, I am confident the team at Tara will continue to promote my skills, to ensure I have continuity of income. I am proud to be a Tara teacher and glad I made this leap.

Tara has been a wonderful agency to work for. John Canning and his team are very friendly and professional and have always replied to any queries I've had promptly and effectively. I've been given reliable, consistent work at great schools and my feedback has always been welcomed. I would recommend Tara to anybody looking for working in this field. Great agency, great people. It's been a pleasure so far.

I have been with the London office of this agency since September and had lots of work as a TA/LSA, and have been paid at very competitive rates. Dealing with John at the agency has always been very professional, whilst always also being warm and friendly. I'm very happy with Tara and would definitely recommend them to friends and colleagues.

Having worked with many agencies and liased with dozens of agency staff I can wholeheartedly say that John Canning and TARA Recruitment have been been nothing short of outstanding. Always professional, caring, contientious not to mention the obvious, a great rate of pay and solid relationships with various schools around London. I have always felt looked after. The opportunities for professional development are excellent. I have recommended TARA and John Canning to dozens of Teachers and Teaching Assistants and none have been let down.

Have had no work so far. Registered as a teacher and was willing to accept teaching assistant work. So many calls were made and nothing! I was quite despondent. My recommendation is to avoid, avoid and you guessed it… avoid!

My main reason for leaving Tara is that they made loads of promises, none of which transpired. Every time I called my consultant was busy, never called me back and when my timesheets were confirmed I still did not get paid. In the beginning all seemed well, but I soon realised I was just another number in the big pool of teachers they find. No personality at all.
