Liverpool Testimonials


Leave us a testimonial

Tradewind have been true to their word and found me many great schools to work in with really supportive staff.

Anthony’s positive feedback throughout my placements has been invaluable and really kept me going, particularly during a number of knock backs from interviews.

5 stars!

Tradewind are professional, polite, friendly and have been able to get me work around the hours that fit me and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for supply work in the Education sector

Thank you to my lovely consultant Anthony who was always on hand and took the time to learn about my circumstances and when I can work around my childcare commitments.

Big A* Tradewind!

Gemma, Teaching Assistant

I have had an amazing experience with Tradewind, so much so that I have completely ignored the other agencies that I signed up with.

My consultants are always on hand, happy to help with any queries and have gone above and beyond. They are a credit to Tradewind.

Since joining in September, I’ve spoken to Charlotte and Liam from Liverpool, and they have constantly gone above and beyond to help. The help and support I have received off them are the reason I would recommend Tradewind to fellow education staff!

Lizzie has been an incredible support for me and has found me some incredible work. She has been on hand with any questions and has taken out the time to check in on myself and my colleagues and ensure that we are happy in our place of work. 

She worked incredibly hard to find me a perfect setting for me, which has worked to develop my own skills as a teacher and pastoral support worker. I can’t thank Lizzie enough for being on hand to answer and ask any questions I have, and I can’t praise her enough. Thank you!

Jen, Teaching Assistant

I feel that I have established a good rapport with this agency, especially with Lizzie who has sought me continual work from the first day of signing up.

Lizzie goes above and beyond to ensure that I am happy and places me in schools that are accessible and enjoyable to work in.

My experience thus far is positive, and I would have no hesitation in recommending the agency to anyone seeking work in education.

I have been with Tradewind recruitment since June 2021 and cannot thank them enough! I was first recruited by Charlotte Creevy, who had seen my CV online and signed me up straight away with an easy straightforward recruitment system.

Since then, I have worked closely with Charlotte on a day-to-day basis, and she is fantastic! She is always there 24/7, if I need to message or email her and she always try’s her best to accommodate my needs and wishes. Since starting with Tradewind I have had work every day I’m free. Charlotte always finds me work in the local area with as much notice as possible which is great for me!  

As an ECT, I sometimes get anxious about long term roles and teaching jobs in the future and Charlotte is always there to reassure me! Charlotte has recommended any long-term roles that became available and persuaded me to send over my CV. Charlotte always fills me with great confidence when I get anxious about future work and always reassures me of the positive feedback, I receive from the schools which is such a rewarding feeling.  

Tradewind and all the staff I have spoken to including, Charlotte and Liam, who are the two consultants I tend to speak to, are very professional, polite, friendly, and kind and have helped me gain work through this busy unusual time.  

Thankyou Charlotte and all the staff at Tradewind, I would highly recommend to anyone looking for work in the education sector and look forward to continuing working with you.


Lauren, Primary Teacher

I joined Tradewind only a few weeks before the first lockdown and from the very beginning the communication from Liam, Wendy and the team has been amazing; I genuinely felt like they cared.  Having my own children means that having a good work/life balance is really important and Liam and Wendy understand this, always working with me to find something that is suitable and that can work around the demands of busy family life

"I was made redundant back in October and decided to go to an agency for support.  After two very disappointing experiences with other agencies, I applied for a Teaching Assistant role online and it was through Tradewind; which I didn't know at the time was an agency. I originally, thought "oh here we go again", but after speaking to Liam and telling him my concerns about agencies, he swore he would get me work in the areas I had asked for, and to my surprise he did!! He has kept me in work since last October (in schools that I've loved) and is so professional when keeping me in the loop with roles available.  I really can't speak highly enough of Tradewind, especially Liam.  So, a big thanks from me as I am loving working with the 4-year-olds at my Primary School.  A word of advice... don't think all agencies are just after your registration, some do what they say they are going to do, as Tradewind have for me  

Nikki, Teaching Assistant

I moved to Liverpool at the end of August 2021 and was introduced to Liam at Tradewind via a friend. Not knowing anything at all, or any areas in Liverpool, Liam couldn’t have done more to make me feel comfortable looking for work. After a phone call explaining my previous experience and what sort of areas of work, I was hoping to get into, he was extremely efficient and nothing was ever too much, the whole process from filling out online forms, getting my DBS check and very quickly finding my first job couldn’t have been any smoother.  Liam would always do regular check ins to make sure I was happy with the work I was in and find me something else if I wished to change! I thoroughly enjoy my time at Tradewind and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for work.

I cannot fault Tce and the team at Tradewind. The initial interview process was professional and smoothly run and I felt genuinely welcomed into the team. Tce understood my circumstances well and were able to find the perfect placement for me. Whenever I've needed to clarify or ask anything I've had a really quick response which always answers my question. Tce is genuinely interested in how my placement is going and she regularly ensures that I am being supported in the role. I feel confident that if I were to have any concerns or issues, they would be dealt with professionally and as speedily as possible. From my experience, I can't recommend Tradewind enough and having dealt with other teaching agencies, they stand out head and shoulders above the rest! I'm really grateful for all the support they have given me.

Robert, Secondary Teacher

I registered for supply work with Tradewind at the end of 2019 and I can honestly say they are by far the most professional agency I have worked with. Right from the get go I felt confident that my consultant, Tce McCann, knew exactly what I was looking for. Communication has always been friendly, professional and regular. I very much trust and respect Tce and I would recommend her and Tradewind over and above any other agency in Liverpool. Thank you.

Tradewind have been very helpful in finding me regular, local work as a cover supervisor, and enabling me to work frequently with schools, which has helped to increase my confidence in the role.

Alexander, Cover Supervisor

I have been with Tradewind since December and have found all the staff I have been in contact with to be approachable and friendly. Tce has always been in contact with me and is always available every time I have needed any reassurance. Tce found me a long term post very quickly and I have been more than happy with Tradewind’s services.

Tce has been fabulous in finding me work. I am so happy I went with Tradewind, they are efficient and always have your best interest at heart. They really look after you. I had a supply job as an ECT for 6 months and at the end of the placement I got a permanent post. Oustanding agency that really looks after you. 

Sharon, Computer Science Teacher

Tradewind are at the top end of the teacher recruitment business, they have developed excellent connections in a host of good schools, and have consistently provided an impressive professional service, always with a personal touch. I have had the pleasure of meeting and working closely with one of their most experienced agents, Lizzie McDonnell, who has been able to find me several MFL roles, both short term and long, all within easy reach of where I live. Lizzie is friendly, caring and very easy to talk to, and I look forward to working with her in the future.

Since starting with Tradewind, Lizzie has been great support and overall, a great leader, providing us with relevant support when needed in regard to our school, being understanding when circumstances come up and a great role model as someone who takes charge. Lizzie takes her time to check in with us, on half terms and Monday mornings after the weekend, making sure we are all ok and ready for the week ahead, but most important she is a great person and I couldn’t be happier to be working alongside herself and Tradewind! All the best! 

Hayley, Teaching Assistant

Our school use Tradewind Recruitment for supply staff and Clare Hind is our school representative. During every conversation with Clare, I have found her to be thoroughly professional, positive and efficient and our school has built up a relationship with Clare to reflect the ethos and values.  The supply staff she recommends to us are ideally suited to our needs of learning due to the fact that Clare has taken the time to get to know our school. 


Clare has supported our school during the most difficult times of the COVID pandemic and made herself available at all times to support finding us suitable supply teachers.  I have been and continue to be thoroughly impressed by the diligence and hard work supplied by Clare and the agency and would recommend their services without hesitation.

I have been working for Tradewind Recruitment for several months now, the registration was straight forward and quick. The staff are always friendly, professional and easy to contact. I have been able to teach my specialist subject on days that are convenient for me, which helps me balance my career and personal commitments. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for a company with a good reputation and plenty of work available.

I've been registered with Tradewind Recruitment for 6 months. Anthony is always a pleasure to work with! He is organised, efficient and friendly to speak to, and treats me as an individual rather than someone to complete a job. Everyone at the Liverpool office - including Lizzie and Jemma - are friendly, communicate well and work tirelessly for finding education employment. Anthony has been really supportive during lockdown, and I look forward to our weekly phone calls. Even though I haven't completed any active work because of lockdown yet, I look forward to working with Tradewind Recruitment Liverpool in the future.'

I have liked the fact that Tradewind, through Anthony, have contacted me regularly at least once every two weeks and usually every week just to check in. It showed care and concern in a difficult time and I really appreciated the genuine nature of the call concerning my well being . Well done I’m looking forward to working for them as soon as we can. 

Susan, Supply Teacher

Anthony was so helpful during the registration process and gave me brilliant advice regarding looking for an ECT job, even in the difficult climate of COVID-19. Tradewind really values their clients and Anthony made sure to check on my progress each week with an informative and useful phone call. I would strongly recommend Tradewind to anyone who is looking for a friendly agency who will look after their clients at any point in their job hunting or employment process!

Thanks to Jemma for being so supportive and helpful during my recent placement. I would have stayed on had they had any permanent vacancies, however this experience has now allowed me to gain a permanent LSA role which I start in September and I’m really excited about! It’s all valuable experience for me to get where I want to be career wise and I couldn’t have gained this experience without your great help- it’s very appreciated!

Chloe, Teaching Assistant

Tce, I wanted to say a massive thank you for this year and finding me this role at the school. It's been challenging at times but no two days (or two hours!) are the same here and I love it! I've got an amazing team around me and feel supported at all times.


But I can honestly say that if it wasn't for you helping me out back in October, I would have walked away from teaching. It's been onwards and upwards since then and I am so grateful for your support!
