There's always work available whenever I need it. The consultants are friendly and on your side if anything goes wrong that isn't your fault.

First impression counts they say..I was really impressed with the registration process of Tradewind London. However past this stage, I was gutted on a number of occasions with a number of consultants 2-3. When there is an issue to solves everyone seems to pass the bucket around. Another factor that made me quit working for them is what is agreed at the beginning is what you will not get paid!! or you may not get paid at all...they will apologise too many times...very sad!

Having recently signed up with the Hull branch, I can honestly say they are the best people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are friendly, helpful, understanding and extremely efficient. My initial meeting was a pleasure to attend and their positivity was infectious. They have completed my clearing including my new DBS in a very short space of time, have gone out of their way to find me suitable work and were very understanding when illness delayed my start date by a couple of weeks. I receive instant replies to phone calls, texts and emails and have left all other agencies / informed other agencies that I am staying with Tradewind Hull only. I will be starting a longterm placement in a fantastic school shortly thanks to them and cannot praise the Hull branch enough. Sad to read some neagtive reviews linked to other branches, but the Hull branch is outstanding in my opinion.

I joined this agency after being promised that I'll get a job instantly and will be paid the best rates. I worked very hard but was fed so many lies over the months from the Birmingham branch. Barely any work once a week if I was lucky and then rudeness. They have the gift of the gob when you initially join to get you signed up its a shame they can't deliver their promises. Over petty pay rates and work they lost a client. I since have joined a fabulous agency and so glad I got rid. As soon ands i left these guys I got work. So tells me they were the bad energy with no work just lies. Good riddance. Please dont sign up with them based on their lies. It's funny agenies out there will get you more work and better pay. Tradewind more like SLAVE WIND.

I was hesitant to work for this agency as I had been told bad things by two teachers prior to moving to the UK. Although the school I was sent to was horrible and I never received my Australian police check original as promised, the staff at tradewind were helpful and professional. I think overall this agency is higher then many other agencies in the UK.

Yolanda Wilson and her team assisted me over the period of 3 to 4 months as I considered the difficult move to the UK. Yolanda was extremely professional in assisting me prior to and post interview and assessment at a wonderful school. She was consistent and timeous in her follow-up and ensured that I was always well aware of what was expected and what was needed with respect to documentation. As my primary concern was for my family, Yolanda was extremely understanding and mindful of my circumstances as I deliberated on taking up a post. Although I ultimately decided to decline the position, it was solely based on a preferential area which would be better suited to our family in being closer to a support base. Yolanda was the consummate professional in her understanding and appreciation of my unique circumstances, despite the many hours which she had dedicated to finding the right position for me. I also strongly recommend Tradewind Recruitment for their professional and friendly approach as they handled my documentation, provided guidance with respect the UK education system Etc. I cannot recommend Yolanda highly enough.

My initial contact with Tradewind was very positive, I spoke to a very knowledgeable gentleman called Ben who put my mind at rest in regards to supply and I agreed to join the agency. I registered just before the summer and the 2 ladies who completed my file and DBS were very helpful and keep in touch with me with every step of my registration. Once ready for work I had the unfortunate luck of being assigned to a girl called xxxxxx who insisted on talking down to me, I’m not who she thinks she is but she really needs to learn who to talk to people in a professional manner. For someone who I assume hasn’t worked a full day in a school, she thought she knew more then me with 16 years experience as a qualified teacher. Tradewind seem like a great company but unfortunately due to my experience with xxxxxx, I have now joined another agency. I wish the company always the best for the future but I feel that employing individuals like xxxxx can only hinder the Manchester’s team success in the future.

I started to work for Manchester Tradewind just over one year ago and I am so pleased I joined this fantastic team. It doesn't matter who you call in the office, everyone is helpful and friendly. My agent Bex finds me enough work on the days that I have availability- which is usually 3 days a week. I am provided with good information on the school's I go into, but generally I return to the same schools and build rapport with the teachers and classes. Tradewind is the only agency I have been with that provides weekly online CPD. I recommend Tradewind Manchester highly, they really are a great team to work for!

The Manchester office is great, worked with both Amy and Cameron and had lots of work in good schools. Cameron increased my rate to help me cover travel and childcare costs so I could work full time. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

I've worked for Tradewind Manchester branch for over a year now. I like to work three days per week and I usually have enough days each week. The staff are all very helpful and a friendly voice is always on the end of the telephone. Particular mention to my Consultant Bex, who always gives me background information on the schools I am going into. The CPD webinar sessions are particularly useful allowing me to keep up-to-date with practice which supply staff can miss out on. I only have positive things to say about Manchester Tradewind and can't recommend them highly enough.

Regarding the London branch Its a bad agency that makes false promises , as an experienced UK teacher with 10 years experience registered 3 months in advance. The consultant Yolanda said "dont register with other agencies we are the biggest and can guarantee you work . Guess what, I only worked 1 day for the whole term. Plus the consultant kept on calling me on the wrong days for work and did not look at my availability. It horrendous service from such an established agency . Avoid
