The staff are always polite, professional and happy to talk. The schools I have worked for through TARA have on the whole been good and have made supply teachers feel welcome. Work is plentiful and the consultants go out of their way to match your talents to the school. A fantastic agency to work for.

Hi Rachel, I have been very impressed by the support that Laura and Matthew have given me. They are always on the end of the telephone to give advice and support. Like some of the other comments, work was slow at the beginning but now I work when it suits me. My teaching career has taken off again after spending many years as a manager. I can say, that I enjoy teaching now and am learning new skills all the time !!! Payment is always on time even though a couple of times they have had to chase schools on the Monday. So thank you all in the TARA office Shropshire.

I have been so impressed by the professionalism and the friendliness of all the staff I have dealt with at Tara. It is no easy achievement to be administratively efficient, organised and to liaise with staff in multiple settings whilst remaining calm and friendly. Yet everyone I have dealt with at Tara does this easily. My only wish is that other agencies I have dealt with were up to the same standard as them. That makes Tara special and I would thoroughly recommend them.

TARA are an excellent agency to work for. I hadn't had a good experience with agencies before this until now. The team are really professional and they always found me regular work. Matthew who is in charge of the primary division was in regular contact with me and helped me get work that suited my needs. Also they put me in really nice schools too, so the work was enjoyable and stress-free. I am really grateful for the opportunity and I would highly recommend them to anyone above any other agency.

Tara are fabulous and I only wish I’d discovered them earlier! I knew I’d made the right choice to register with them as soon as Matt picked the phone up to me when I made my initial enquiry - he was so helpful, friendly and his professional and supportive manner really made the agency stand out from the crowd. The whole team are simply fantastic - nothing is too much trouble for them and they genuinely care. I feel so valued, they build great relationships and I have been offered regular work at lovely schools throughout my time with them. I really can’t recommend them highly enough and I am looking forward to working with them for many years to come.

I have worked with TARA since September 2019 and have had really good experiences so far. Matthew is extremely helpful, with great communication and very personable. Matthew tries to give me advance bookings, at schools I prefer, so that I can plan my week. Good rates of pay and I've always been correctly paid and on time. Thanks to Matthew and everyone at TARA!

I have been working for Tara Professional Recruitment since November 2019. Due to having my paperwork up to date, they cleared me for teaching swiftly and I was out covering teacher absences/release time across Shropshire/Telford&Wrekin. Every member of the team that I speak to are wonderful and it feels like speaking to a friend at the start/end of a day. My values and aspirations as a teacher and person are respected and I would highly recommend working for Tara. A huge thank you to a fabulous agency that ensure my love for teaching continues.

I was contacted by Justyna Luczka about a cover supervisor role in March and I have been very impressed by TARA. After almost 12 years working as a BI Manager in the private sector for different companies in Paris, I made a career change to become a teacher in the UK. I had an interview with Justyna and she was very professional, supportive, honest and friendly and always available for me. She treats me as an individual. She is very reactive and replied very quickly to all my emails and questions by phone and always ready to listen to me and caring about my needs. Thanks to all of her advice and guidance, I got a contract with a secondary school in July for a permanent role as a teacher. I highly recommend TARA!

I have worked for Tara for more than 3 months. I have just excellent comments to give about it. What I love of this agency is its easy way to place people in working places. Tara provides fast and direct communication with its managers. Its managers, especially John, and its policies are crystal clear direct and approachable. Also, in Tara, everybody is treated and regarded as a professional. This agency recognizes its workers' efforts, and provide regular feedback about their performance. Regarding payments, all of them are made punctually, without any delay. I can say in a few words that Tara is a very professional and ethical organization.

I have been very impressed by TARA. I had only specific dates where I could work and Rachel was able to find me work during that period. I also knew in advance where it was so could plan my week and was well prepared. Rachel and Steph told me about all the documentation I would need and helped me with it so that I had everything I needed in good time. They are all a very friendly and efficient team!
