St Albans Testimonials


Leave us a testimonial

I have been very happy with the service provided by Tradewind Recruitment over the years, and in particular this year with my communications with Cherie at the St Albans Branch. She has matched me with schools that I have enjoyed working in and has provided me with enough ongoing work throughout this last academic year.

I met Georgia when I started seeking agency work. She and Tradewind were recommended to me by a friend and former colleague. We had both worked together for ten years in a challenging environment and were looking for something different. He suggested I approach Georgia at Tradewind, which I did.  

I was impressed by Georgia's friendly and outgoing manner, and also with her efficiency.  Within a few days of signing up I was on my first placement.  She helped me with the registration details and has answered any queries or concerns I have had.  Her colleagues at Tradewind have also been helpful, particularly Sam Taylor.  Georgia keeps in touch and gives feedback.  She is also good at building one's confidence.

I am going to recommend Georgia at Tradewind to other friends and colleagues in the future.

I have been working with Tradewind for 6 months and they have made my transition to supply stress-free. Georgia has found me a range of schools to work with, all within an hours drive of my house. Even in September when there were less roles, she made sure I was getting days as a teacher or a TA to get me through. I only work part time but Georgia has always offered me weeks of full time work in the area if I wanted them and has made me feel totally comfortable in turning down work that I didn’t fancy!

She found me roles in two different schools for the current term and gave me all the facts I needed to choose which one to take. She’s supported me completely in the few times I’ve had issues and has truly gone above and beyond in her role. She is reliable and helpful, making sure I am always happy with schools I’ve visited and ensuring my timesheets are correct! Georgia always has my best in mind and working with her has been a very positive experience. The courses offered by Tradewind, along with my experience in a range of schools has made me a much more confident, and in my opinion, knowledgable teacher.
