Denise Porter (Kemball School)

"I have used GB Recruitment for a number of years and in this time I have found the staff to be very helpful and cheerful, they have always given a first class service. The supply staff they have sent to our school have always been very professional, punctual and friendly."

Chris Booth (Blurton High School - now Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy)

"As soon as you contact GB Recruitment, you are at ease because of their professionalism and the friendliness of all the staff. They put a lot of effort into getting to know their clients needs and the strengths of the people on their books and this takes the guesswork out of placing the staff they have. They are also constantly looking at ways to improve the service they offer. There is always a phone call to check that everything is fine but they aren't constantly on the phone, as some agencies are, pushing for business. We all know how stressful it can be when you need to find good, reliable people, and it really helps to know that they are only a phone call away."

"We have used GB Recruitment as our sole Supply Agency for the past 9 years or more. During this time, we have found Niki and her friendly team to be efficient, helpful and the calibre of staff we have taken from them during this time has been excellent. Sometimes, we find out very late that our staff are unable to come into work and GB always come to the rescue with supply. I would recommend GB to any school who are in need of Teachers or Teaching Assistants. Well done GB. Keep up the great work!"
