“I have been working with Karen and her team at Apex for 5 years. She has provided work for me through my university years and ongoing. During this time, I have had variety, flexible working hours and excellent pay. Karen has a knack of pairing staff and placements to a best fit.
She looks at your CV and bides her time until exactly the right match comes along. She has such a diverse range of clients that she has a wide circle of suitability. She also welcomes a wish list from her workers as her priority lies with her staff and she provides a strong base to advise, represent and provide pastoral support. The schools speak highly of the staff she sends in, often offering them permanent roles. They have confidence in the suitability of staff that will be sent from Apex.”
For me, my highlights will be;
- Being offered one or two hours a day at time where I had very young children and sick family members to schedule around
- Having someone confidential to advise me when I didn’t feel I was coping too well and give me honest feedback and reassurance.
- ‘That Friday feeling’, where she would secure an exciting, new contract just before the weekend.
- Holiday pay
UPDATE: Gilly is starting her first permanent teaching contract in the New Year. We are please to have been part of Gilly’s teaching journey over the years and wish her well in her new role.
