I have been with The Supply Room for two years. It has been great. I was open at my initial face-to-face meeting ( with Carla Botha who has now left ) that I had a history of depression when asked about some gaps on my cv, I thought I may not be therefore booked. This was not the case, I have been treated with no mental health discrimination even when I’ve been ill. I really appreciate that. I met Brandon Alborough and Lara Tipper face to face too in February last year when I came into the office without! an appointment ( I really appreciated their time and patience meeting with me as after being ill I felt to see them face-to-face ). I’m grateful Brandon remembered and acted on my requests of the boroughs I wanted to work in and the type of school I wanted to work in too. I know Lara Tipper has moved from TSR Fleet Street but like Carla, if there is a way to share this feedback to them I will be grateful.Last year Ariana Malaj was my agent for a school I loved working at. The day ( the day before the last! day of the summer term ) Ariana told me they would not book me for the new academic year, she did so most sensitively, I really!!!! appreciated that as I did not get to say proper goodbyes and we were like a family in the primary department.Xavier Phoenix is my current agent and has been great too. Again regarding health, I once was ill and had to leave work after two and a half hours. The next day, I wasn’t sure if I could make it ( it was my first few weeks at the school I’m currently at ). Xavier encouraged me to try and return home if I couldn’t, this was extremely helpful and I was fine to get through the day…I write this lengthy review on purpose to emphasize the kindness, support, encouragement and more I have experienced at TSR.Ada Mkparu.

Incredibly useful at finding me a place, they meet with you and get to know all of your qualifications and preferences before letting you know about any opportunities you might be interested in straight away, both jobs and training courses. I had Amber as my agent who was very clear about the process and always fast to respond, felt really easy to get fully qualified to be in a school. Only took about a month from joining to finding a job I like, would definitely reccomend to someone looking to work in education.

The Supply Room is a wonderful recruitment agency that helps connect people with the type of work they are looking for.Maddie Harston was particularly helpful, kind and supportive throughout the process. I was given multiple positions to choose from, was given adivce on trial shifts and all the steps/relevant information was very clearly communicated. If you are looking for part-time or full-time work in Dorset or Hampshire, I would highly recommend contacting the team here.

Applied for a position The Supply Room posted on Indeed. Was contacted by Maddie Harston who went through my work experience and put me forward for a position guiding me step by step through the process. Maddie kept me updated through every step and did not mind my 101 questions! First experience of working with an agency and was pleasantly surprised how well it went.

Great agency, my consultant Maddie is wonderful. I've had a very quick reply from her after submitting my CV. We had a face to face appointment to discuss what I was looking for and what agency had to offer. She created my profile and contacted the school to organize an interview with them. Maddie was always very helpful, would regularly check how I was doing and if I was happy at my work place. School has now offered me a permanent contract which will be staring very soon.

I used The Supply Room about a year ago for my first job in the education sector and had a successful experience and was offered a full time position with the school directly after my agency had come to an end. I got back in touch recently after wanting to explore further afield in terms of the education sector. Within a week they were able to secure me with a job working in a primary school and the process from there was very quick that I could have started straight away. Cannot thank The supply Room enough for all the help and guidance they have provided for me for working in schools. Thank you!

I have just moved from Kent and was searching for a job with SEN schools within my new area, I have had Maddie helping and supporting me with this, she was very understanding with my situation, she made sure that things could be arraigned around my circumstance and made sure I was up to date and aware of everything that was happening. I have been able to send maddie emails, with quick responses, she often called me to check how I was and to give me information. I had a meeting with maddie and told her what my ambitions were, and she has made that possible, I am currently working at the SEN school that I chose with maddie and have been offered future commitments there, however this was all down to maddie, she was in constant contact with the school, chasing them up with things and making sure they knew everything about me that they needed too. I would 100% recommend the supply room to anybody looking for something similar, and if not, I’m sure maddie will be able to support you with what you’re looking for. I would like to finish this by thanking the supply room and their team for the support but in particular maddie, you were amazing.
