Fantastic company! I’ve worked for them since March 2019 in both Essex and London. I couldn’t fault Roger and Tim in Chelmsford or the schools they sent me too. Craig in London is equally supportive. Again, a brilliant array of schools. When working with agencies, the quality of the consultant makes or breaks one’s experience. If they listen and care, it’s great! The Tradewind staff I’ve worked with have been fantastic. I just wish the rate of pay on PAYE was higher :)

Fake jobs to get you registered and meet there targets. I'm an experienced teacher looking for quite a specific post. I received one phone call about daily supply. Then nothing......... waste of time

Avoid!! It depends on who your consultant is. Last year, I received excellent support from them, but since September they have been absolutely rubbish! I am very disappointed, I feel like I am just a number for them, they don't care about my needs.

Education consultant Mathew Giansiracusa at Tradewind Australia is a brilliant listener who is kind and calm when I need to discuss casual relief teaching experiences at the schools I’m placed at. Thanks Mathew for always considering the needs of the teacher and also for working hard to find bookings. -Belinda Spina

Tradewind are not good. If their consultants make a mistake they will dismiss your complaint and then turn on you. I had a phone call telling me that i was going to be taken off their books after their consultant set me up!!! DON'T WORK FOR THIS AGENCY!!!!! Once they don't like you they wont give you any work Unprofessional company

Registered only a few weeks ago after telephoning regarding a specific job . Went down to register and was told I would be put forward for the job and then WOW AMAZING suddenly after a few days the job is not available!. However saw a similar job with the same pay and details and the same date on their website so I think we can conclude that these vacancies never existed in the first place its merely a ploy to get people to register on their database I did not expect I would hear anything more from them so I have since withdrawn my registration AVOID AT ALL COSTS NOT A PROFESSIONAL OR NICE THING TO DO !

Hourly pay rates have not changed for over 3 years - while average wages nationally are up 4%pa.!! The TW vacancy webpage is constantly out of date. Most of the advertised jobs have already been filled. Such a time waste.

Since returning to the country after spending some time travelling I have been working with Tradewind. Alex contacted me on Linked In then I went into the office for a meeting. Between him and the team my application was processed very quickly and by the end of the week I had secured a 3 day placement till the end of the academic year. Throughout the process, even today. The communication has been excellent providing work in schools in my local area, with a good rate of pay and the variety I had asked for. Would highly recommend.

I have worked with Tradewind for a year now (Hull/Lincolnshire) and have been very pleased with them. Always friendly, accommodating for my varying working availability and professional. I would recommend this agency to others. Online admin is quick and easy to complete.

After returning from travelling I was looking for flexible work to ease me back into teaching again whilst I found my feet. Alex had contacted me via Linked In and I went for a meeting at the office for the following week. Before I had even got to the office the team had verified my references to try and get me work as soon as possible. By the end of that week I was secured work for 3 days a week till the end of the academic year. Thought the process, and still continuing, Alex has tried effortlessly to meet my requirements for travelling, types of schools etc and consistently kept me in the loop. I would highly recommend Tradewind if you are looking for supply teaching in North East Lincolnshire.

I have worked mainly with Alex at the Hull/Lincolnshire branch and I have found it a good agency to be with. The communication is good and he is always honest with me which I appreciate. The amount of work and rate of pay is quite high. Overall it is a good agency.

AVOID! Can't speak for the wider Tradewind Recruitment offices, so this review is no reflection on those teams other than the Hull Office. In my 15 years of teaching I can honestly say this is the poorest agency in the area. The communication I have received throughout my time with the Hull office has been very poor. Especially when you have to call them yourself to find out what's going on. When registering it's all pleasant and positive but on reflection it's all fake. I had no other option to register with another supply agency which in hindsight has been the best decision I have made this year. I am starting a full time role from September which my new consultant arranged for me. I wasn't going to write this review, but I felt other professionals or aspiring professionals needed to know about the experience received from this office. Please avoid or at least do your research before using this agency. Speak with fellow colleagues first.

I am an experienced teacher. I worked in London and Manchester. I have sent them my CV several times, I called the consultants but no result. It seems they have no vacancies. Both branches in London and Manchester....
