Friendly, accommodating staff. I had a very smooth experience with them when it came to finding the most suitable role and getting a school placement. I really appreciated Matt's honesty and knowledge about the role I applied for.

I was contacted ny a recruiter about an opportunity but was told to go in to register with them and they would send an e-mail to confirm, but did not receive one. Had to call them back to reorganised.
When I arrived I was treated well and they had found a placement 2 days later. I was told I would have a paid trial. I did a total of 12-trial days, with poor communication on how to get paid.
I tried to contact a recruiter but he was on annual leave.
Finally got hold of him and was told me he would send a timesheet - never received it. Tried to contact him again but he was on annual leave (again!)
After filling in the timesheet, I received no reply. Was contacted a month later about sending a form for bank details - didn't receive it. Had to contact him twice! Finally got the form and filled it in. I sent it twice this time to make sure he receives it but wasn't sure until I receive an e-mail from payroll
2 months after my trial days - I have still yet to get paid!!
Tip to Edustaff - make sure staff sends acknowledgment e-mails like"got it" or "Thanks". Fix computer system so that e-mails actually get sent. Tell jobseekers about recruitment process and trial day-pays (probably get that set up during the recruitment process rather than after I had to pester them for 2 months).

EduStaff have been consistently helpful with the process of finding a school-based position post-degree.
Amber was great at keeping me updated with my search via email and always answered any queries that I had efficiently. She helped with my interview prep and was committed to the entire procedure, checking in with me by emailing and phoning which made me feel very confident in the company.
Everyone at EduStaff is extremely friendly and are genuinely dedicated to helping you put your foot on the career ladder.

Great organisation! Every member of staff I met was so friendly and supportive. The process of registering with Edustaff to securing a job was quick and well-organised throughout. There is always someone on the other end of the phone to answer questions and give advice. Can’t recommend enough!

Edustaff were very helpful and accommodating in finding me a position at a school that suited me. They listened to my situation with my then current employer and then supported me in finding a school that would suit my skills and then guided me during my interview process. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get into teaching.

I’d never looked for a job through a recruitment agency before, having always been sceptical about the way some organisations treat their clients. However, I cannot speak highly enough of Edustaff Chelmsford.
Amber was so incredibly helpful and supportive, going above and beyond to find me a teaching position that suited me; a true professional. The team were so easy to speak to and kept me updated regularly. Edustaff took the hassle and stress out of looking for a new job. This is a recruitment consultancy that really care about their clients. I can’t recommend them enough.

Edustaff have been wonderful!!! They did everything they said they would. From my initial meeting with the staff at Chelmsford, I felt like I was in the right place. They got me as a person, as a teacher, and my situation.
They found me a position within 3 weeks, that is more than perfect for me and for the school. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. The staff are so warm and friendly, and will go above and beyond to find you the right position.

Luke from Edustaff Birmingham has been so helpful with finding me a post graduate job. The process is very simple and is explained in detail by the staff so you know what to expect at each step of the procedure. Firstly, I visited the Edustaff office to give all of my details and documents, I applied for a new DBS and signed up for the update service. My details were then sent out to schools in my area. Two weeks later I was given a trial day to attend, and two days after that I had been told that I was chosen for the job! I would definitely recommend Edustaff to anyone who is looking to pursue a career in the Educational field.

The company was very efficient and helpful throughout the entire process. Very friendly Staff. Charlie (in Chelmsford) was very supportive and secured me a job with a Primary School. Throughout the process he kept me updated regularly. Especially leading up to an interview it was helpful to have the little 'pep talk' and discuss final details which helped to put you at ease.
Would highly recommend EduStaff (especially all the team in Chelmsford!)
