"I first approached GB Recruitment when I retired from full time work as a TA in a primary school. I didn't think that I would get any work but was thrilled when Niki contacted me. The result is that I have worked as often or as little as I want to. The one thing I like about GB Recruitment is that you know where you stand. I have found the experience very fulfilling and very professional and would recommend GB Recruitment to anyone."

Mary (Audley)

"The staff are very friendly; they maintain high professional standards, and are always willing to help. I know they are always at the other end of the phone if I need them. I feel that I am looked after by a company which cares about its employees. I would recommend GB Recruitment to anyone who wants to work in education."

Julie (Kidsgrove)

"I hunted out the first contract I signed at GB dated 6/12/2001. The last paragraph stated that GB Recruitment and the supply assistant agree that such is the nature of temporary work that there may be periods between assignments when no work is available, not for me! In 9 years I have been employed by GB Recruitment almost full time. After being placed at a school during the last 12 months by GB Recruitment I have been offered a permanent position and have decided to accept. I cannot praise GB Recruitment enough for the help and support received over the years and would not hesitate to return to them should the need arise."

Ann (Forsbrook)

"Having spent a number of years living overseas and returning to the UK, the staff at GB Recruitment have given me the necessary confidence and opportunity to get back into the classroom. They have been understanding, helpful, encouraging and have sought out the most suitable placements for me whenever I have been available for work."

Gillian (Newcastle)

"Having only recently signed up with GB Recruitment, all I can say is that I have received the most impeccable service so far. The application process was extremely smooth and I was working before I knew it! The staff are extremely friendly and supportive, an absolute credit to the company. They have provided me with opportunities in a variety of settings which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend GB Recruitment!"

Rahila (Etruria)

"I find GB Recruitment to be a very nice company to work for. The team are all very friendly and understanding if you are unavailable for work on certain days. I have been placed in a number of schools and nurseries through GB Recruitment and I have enjoyed every single one that I have worked in. I hope to work for GB for a long time."

Michelle (Weston Coyney)

"I would just like to thank Niki in particular at GB Recruitment for the amazing work she did during the two days that I initially signed up to GB Recruitment. From start to finish she has been flawless. I had signed up to an agency previously and the whole process seemed to be taking too long and it felt like it was dragging on. I signed up to GB Recruitment on a Monday afternoon and Niki had rang me by the Wednesday to offer me a trial day within a school on the Thursday. Thanks to GB Recruitment for giving me that chance. The whole team are very welcoming, friendly and actually listen to what you have to say. They make you feel valued and thought of."

Melissa (Tunstall)

"I am delighted to be working for GB Recruitment. The communication between us is great and very helpful. There is always someone to explain anything I'm having trouble with. GB Recruitment have honestly changed my life around. I never knew I really had the courage to be a teaching assistant but its been amazing."

Nicolette (Bucknall)

"I approached GB nearly 2 years ago as I needed some flexibility with my working hours that fitted around family life. GB have always found work that suited my working hours. I've found working with GB very beneficial as you get to go around different settings and gain experience. I would recommend GB to people who are looking for work but also need a good work life balance. The staff are very approachable and always there to help."

Razia (Longton)

"I signed up with GB Recruitment eighteen months ago after having time out to raise a family and gain my Early Years status. I originally signed up with GB in order to earn some money while I looked for a permanent position. However, the work GB have given me has been amazing and I have been more than happy to continue with them. Niki has been fantastic at finding work for me that fits my needs and I have gained valuable experience in a variety of settings. The staff at GB are very friendly and helpful and I always know where i stand. I hope to continue working for GB Recruitment for some time."

Sue (Longsdon)

"I am so glad that I have become a member of GB Recruitment. I have found the whole team to be professional, efficient and friendly but more importantly, extremely supportive. At my first initial meeting, Niki made me feel so welcome and discussed all aspects of the agency with me. Since then, I've been working almost non stop. I'm currently working at a local primary school and I have even been lucky enough to have work during the school holidays. The team offer support and guidance every step of the way, and their website is so helpful with lots of useful teaching aids and links. The agency will keep you learning and training by sending you on courses and emailing current policies for you to read. Many thanks GB for looking after me in the excellent way that you do."

Emma (Baddeley Green)

"I have found the whole experience with GB Recruitment a very positive one. Niki and her team were incredibly supportive from the first point of contact to securing work with the agency. They put you at ease and help you step by step from processing your DBS to finding out what kind of supply work you want to do and establishing your availability. They listen carefully to your work preferences and discuss your qualifications and experience in order to match you well to the educational role you want. Paper work is very straightforward and easy to complete and payment of work has been extremely efficient with no problems. I would definitely recommend GB Recruitment as a great agency to work for. Well done GB! "

Joanne (Northwood)

"I have worked for GB for the past year since being made redundent as an LSP. They supported me throughout long term placements and kept me in work; as a single parent it was important to be earning. The staff always made me feel welcome & asked if I was happy with my assignments and through GB, I've found a full time job. The company provided me with a good reference upon leaving and I would just like to say thank you from a happy ex employee."

Jenny (Blurton)

"Twelve months ago I decided to resign from my position as SENCo in a primary school and register with GB Recruitment, to work as a Supply Teacher. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made, both personally and professionally. During a very thorough recruitment process at GB, an astute advisor suggested that I use my skills to support pupils in Special Educational Needs settings. Not only has this been a superb opportunity for my career development, but I have experienced continuous employment, as I was offered longer term positions. There is always someone at the end of the phone, checking that you are comfortable with the work provided. I am now in my second year as an employee with GB Recruitment and have always felt valued by a positive and committed team of professionals. Sue Mayer "

Sue (Newcastle)

"I would highly recommend GB Recruitment to anyone. They always found me supply work and I was only available to work for one day a week. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. I felt valued and they always made sure that I was happy at a school. They answered the phone straight away, along with any queries I had. Very happy with their service and will definitely return to them in the future if I need to. "

Dawn (Lightwood)

"It's an absolute pleasure to work for GB - you are always all so professional, approachable, positive and lovely and have always found me such fab assignments - I really appreciate it and have been recommending you to friends working in the field, who are approaching crossroads. "
