"GB Recruitment was recommended to me by a friend. All of the staff were friendly and supportive and provided me with lots of information about the role of a cover teacher and the different options that were available to me. They keep me updated regularly and ensure that I am supported and valued."

Debbie (Newcastle-under-Lyme)

"As a newly qualified teacher, I had lots of queries and questions about how the system works, however all were answered and my concerns put at ease. I signed up to the agency in September 2014 and have been offered lots of work from long-term cover to occasional days all of which were tailored to suit my teaching skills. During my time teaching full time, I had lost my confidence. GB Recruitment has restored this and I would recommend them to anyone."

Kirsty (Trent Vale)

"GB Recruitment have offered me continuous full time work at schools in the areas that I requested. The staff are always helpful, approachable and prepared to spend as much time as necessary discussing jobs that they have offered. Paperwork is dealt with quickly and efficiently, they actively chase up any outstanding requirements and support is readily given when requested. I would happily recommend them to any colleagues who wished to work in supply."

Christine (Alsager)

"I have been working with GB Recruitment since September 2014 and have been extremely happy with the decision. The team are all friendly and approachable, making sure that you are happy with the placements and experiences in schools. Communication is excellent and I feel well looked after and genuinely cared about by the members of the team. I would gladly recommend the agency as I can honestly say my experiences with them have been completely positive."

Martyne (Westlands)

"A friend recommended GB Recruitment to me when she knew I was looking to explore the option of doing some supply teaching. I had never done supply work before or found employment through an agency, so it was all new to me. From the initial phone call and introductory interview, I was instantly impressed with GB Recruitment; the staff are all very friendly and welcoming and the process of registering was very straightforward. Once the relevant paperwork was in place, I was booked for work very quickly; I only needed work on certain days each week and GB Recruitment have been able to accommodate this. They took the time build my profile, know where my strengths and interests are and have been able to place me within the age groups that I have the most experience with."

Sarah (Fulford)

"When I was first introduced to GB Recruitment and the team, I was very disillusioned with teaching, lacking confidence and unsure which direction my career was going to take. Despite this, Diane at GB encouraged me to continue with teaching and with her support, I have now had the opportunity to rediscover my love for teaching and all that it entails. I have been introduced to other supply teaching staff from GB Recruitment with the same commitment and enthusiasm at the many different schools that I have been given placements at. This has proven, that despite my earlier experiences, there are still professionals that care and with the support, help and friendly advice that GB Recruitment provides, they are able to continue doing what they do best which is teach. Following numerous short term supply bookings, I was given the opportunity to undergo a long term placement at a local primary school which eventually led to permanent employment. I would recommend GB Recruitment wholeheartedly as a professional, caring supply agency. "

Janine (Bucknall)

"The staff at GB Recruitment have always been very approachable and friendly. When I started supply teaching I was a bit anxious and the staff at GB Recruitment gave me the confidence to go out to work. They always do their best to find available work and I am kept in employment most of the time. They are always at the end of the phone if you have any problems or concerns. After completing numerous short term assignments, I was asked to cover a long term placement which eventually led to full time permanent employment."

Sam (Silverdale)

"Since re-registering with GB Recruitment, I have successfully completed a year placement. My trilingual skills have been put to good use and although it's been a challenging year in the Foundation stage, I have progressed and largely enjoyed the experience. My references will now broaden my appeal through GB Recruitment and I look forward to working with more local children and schools throughout the coming years. I would have no hesitation in recommending GB Recruitment to anyone considering supply as a career or gateway to full time employment."

Afia (Hanley)

"I have received the utmost support from GB Recruitment. This was my first time doing supply through an agency and GB Recruitment made sure that my information was processed rapidly and that I was working within a fortnight."

Janice (Mow Cop)

"GB Recruitment are able to manage assignments to everyones' satisfaction because of their broad knowledge of schools and they value my feedback."

Jenny (Clayton)

"I came across GB Recruitment in January 2006 after terminating my contract at my last school. At this point, I was disillusioned with teaching and was persuaded to give supply a try. Having driven past their office in Newcastle many times I took the plunge and called in. I had a short informal chat, arranged an appointment and a comfortable in depth interview followed. Since then I have been introduced to several Stoke-on-Trent schools and enjoyed most. GB Recruitment have encouraged me through support and CPD, culminating in a renewed enthusiasm for working with challenging schools with great staff. I was delighted with my last few terms placements and gained a great deal of fulfillment through my Y5 & Y6 pupils progress. This term, I was offered full time employment and have taken on additional responsibilities as Numeracy Co-ordinator and frankly I couldn't be happier. If anyone has any doubts or needs guidance back into the education system, I suggest they take the step that I did and contact GB Recruitment."

Janice (Kidsgrove)

"GB Recruitment takes time to get to know YOU and makes every effort to deploy your expertise and knowledge, giving you the best teaching experience. If a caring, genuine and loyal agency will help you to take the plunge, then GB Recruitment are really worth a call. I haven't looked back!"

Denise (Upper Tean)

"When I joined GB Recruitment in January 2009, after teaching in the same school for 27 years, the thought of going into new and unknown situations was a daunting one. The team at GB did all they could to get me settled and working and have always shown an interest in me as a person as well as an employee and worked really hard to keep me in work."

Steve (Uttoxeter)

"I registered with GB after taking time out of my career to spend more quality time with my own children. After spending 2 years out of the classroom GB supported me fully back into teaching. I soon developed an excellent relationship with them as my employer and they provided me with plenty of work with my chosen age group. This regular work in a variety of settings enabled me to ease my way back into the classroom. Over the last few years I have been offered several permanent positions which I declined as GB were so professional and efficient in providing me with the work I needed. I have now taken a permanent position back in teaching and would like to thank all the staff at GB for their hard work and support over the last 3 years. They are a great team and I would recommend them highly."

Marisia (Norton)

"I highly recommend Niki and the team at GB. They are the utmost professionals at all times and deliver a high quality service that is second to none."

Nicola (Longton)

"I have been with GB Recruitment for just over a year now and couldn't recommend them enough! All members of the team are friendly, hardworking and make sure your needs and happiness are put first. Niki, along with the rest of the GB team, have provided me with continuous full time work from day one and always keep in regular contact to see how things are going and to ensure I am happy with the school I have been allocated to. They keep any training you may need regularly upto date by providing the necessary courses which I have found insightful and supportive. I would happily recommend GB Recruitment to anyone and feel that I am a valued member of the agency."

Ellie (Trentham)

"GB have been a pleasure to work for and Niki has been fantastic. She is always approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to working with GB and Niki as much as possible in the future!"

Matt (Blurton)

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation of you all. After resigning from my previous teaching position to reassess and redirect my career, I was extremely fortunate to find GB Recruitment and sign on with them over a year ago. They have been fantastic. They show respect and appreciation for my past teaching experience and endeavour to find placements that are beneficial to both me and the schools. They even provide courses which keep me abreast of new developments in teaching and continue my professional development. The GB Recruitment team have been unwavering in their support even during a stressful period of serious illness. I feel I was truly blessed to discover such an amazingly dedicated supply agency."

Antonia (Stone)

"When I left full time classroom teaching in 2005, I signed upto a variety of supply agencies in order to experience teaching in a greater range of schools and age ranges. It soon became clear to me that the team at GB were head and shoulders above the others! Diane, Niki, Lisa and company really put themselves out to match you to appropriate placements, they listen to your concerns, they are always there to sort out any problems that you might have, provide CPD opportunities and are genuinely pleased for you when your placement goes well. Since then I have remained working in education as a Teacher, Teaching Assistant and EYP. I have even worked in private day care through GB. I have enjoyed each and every one of these work placements and do not hesitate to recommend them to you. Don't hesitate - ring 01782 624444 today! A whole new work world is waiting for you."

Vikki (Weston Coyney)

"I joined GB Recruitment looking for supply work, after having gone through a negative experience in a full time teaching role. Niki listened to me and what my preferred working conditions were. She was absolutely incredible, and placed me in a long term position at a beautiful school that I am now making a career at. GB Recruitment work around you and it yields results that you never thought possible. "

Shaun (Westlands)

"I would like to say a huge thank you to all the team at GB and especially to you Diane. It was not without some misgivings when I first decided to approach a teaching agency. However, the personal care and professionalism at GB soon dispelled any doubts. The time, consideration and willingness given to meeting my requirements was excellent. Nothing was ever too trivial. "

Barbara Machin

"Since I started working for GB, I have not looked back. Everyone at GB is very lovely and easy to talk to. When I first joined I was unsure on whether to take long term posts, or which year groups to work with. Diane and Niki were supportive with my choices and once my confidence had built up, they encouraged me to take long term posts that I have since thoroughly enjoyed. It is clear that any posts I have been put forward for, that my strengths and needs have been taken into consideration. I have and would recommend GB to anyone looking for supply work. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at GB for helping me to enjoy teaching again! "

Aimee Lovatt - (Newcastle)

"I have worked with GB Recruitment for the last 2 years since leaving a full time teaching post. During that time the agency has been nothing but supportive in finding work for me and maintaining regular contact. I have had work offered to me with my desired days and have rarely been waiting for the phone to ring. I was interviewed by Niki when I first applied and she has been my main point of contact during this time. She has been highly professional, helpful and very approachable. A pleasure to work with. I would certainly recommend this agency for anyone considering the supply teaching route. There are many faceless and unsupportive agencies out there. GB is not one of them. A very happy experience. "

Sue (Leek)

"I have been with GB for a few months now. Firstly, I was made to feel very comfortable . The team are friendly, approachable, helpful and efficient. I was placed for work two days after I signed up with GB. I highly recommend the agency and would like to thank Lisa for everything. "
