Below are some of our most frequently asked questions, but if you can’t find the information you’re looking for, get in touch with our friendly team who will be happy to help.

  • What type of schools do you work with?

    We work with a wide range of education establishments, including:

    • Nurseries
    • Primary schools
    • Secondary schools
    • Colleges
    • Special schools and PRUs
  • What are your opening hours?

    We never place any member of staff in your school without carrying out a thorough vetting process.

    This includes:

    Our office is open Monday to Friday from 7am until 6.30pm, but we are contactable by telephone twenty-four hours a day, including weekends.

  • How much will I get paid for a placement?

    We believe that all our candidates should receive fair pay for the work they do.

    Your rate of pay will be agreed with your consultant when you register, and will be based on your experience, qualifications and the type of placements you are looking for.

    Payment is made weekly and in arrears, on the Friday of the week after you worked. This will be dependent on you submitting your timesheets promptly.

  • Do I have to be on call for supply work?

    We will always try and give you as much notice as possible about available placements, but you should also be prepared for some same-day assignments.

    Your consultant will contact you regularly to check your availability for the coming weeks. We ask that for the days you can work, you make yourself available for calls between 7am and 9am so we can contact you with suitable opportunities.
