What supply teachers & teaching assistants say about 4myschools teacher recruitment agency

I signed up with 4myschools barely a month before the half term and I must say that it has been satisfying. I will love to commend Donna Payne for her amazing work ethics, once I was signed, she ensured I got a school to work with and that I was comfortable working with the particular school, she calls to check how my experience with the school has been and if I am okay with the distance.
4myschools made me feel a part of their supply team from the moment I began the enrolment process. Their genuine enthusiasm and consideration to my experience in education gave me reassurance that they'd find me a role which played to my strengths.Katie and the recruitment team arranged an assignment in a lovely school as soon as my DBS arrived, and I cannot thank them , or recommend them enough!
I’ve had great variety of placements through 4myschools. Paul has been a great contact there. They’ve been helpful & supportive. I’ve recommended 4myschools to friends & will continue to do so.
Very happy with the agency and Bryony has helped me step by step with everything. Very professional service.
Amazing agency.I am working a month with them.They find me a long term job so quick, people are so nice, helpful and kind.Thank you.
4myschools have been an excellent help to me so far, a really quick and easy sign up/registration and everyone listening and working hard to find me schools jobs that suit me the best. Communication is quick & thorough, I will like to thank Hope Lambart, Helen Darling, Jemma Terroni & Keyilah Daley for all of their help so far in securing me a job role.
Professional Agency with an excellent delivery service
Paul Matthews excellent consultantAlways get you work and he work very hard to get you the best and write schools you want
I enquired about supply teaching ready for next year but Lorraine, Syvonne and Jasmine were so efficient they have got me started already! They are so supportive and friendly and I love working for them
I have worked for 4myschools since 2017 and have always found Paul and Katie (Norwich team) really friendly and helpful. They are always supportive and find schools that suit me and often with longer term contracts. All of the team at 4myschools always answer emails and phone calls promptly. I would happily recommend.
Overall a great experience. Thanks to Keyilah and Olivia for a smooth onboarding.Paul being a great help to schedule work and the process. Great experience!
Good organisation and contact, great company to gain a big experience in various environments.
I began my journey with 4myschools this academic year after moving to a new area and leaving my full time position. Although at times this seemed daunting, my consultant Paul made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. He has listened to my concerns, taken on board my teaching preferences and has found me some great schools to teach in. This has included day-to-day supply work and most recently long term supply. A great supply company to work for! Thank you for your hard work Paul.
Once I started working, it has been fine. I was pleased to be given work everyday in my first week. Whenever I have called them, even on the weekend, they have always been happy to answer my questions which has been particularly helpful as a new teacher.
A great company to work with. Work is available readily and the client care is on point. The use of the app really helps streamline the process of accepting work on a daily basis.
Working with 4myschools as a supply teaching assistant has been an excellent experience. Katie Joyce and Paul Matthews provided exemplary support, ensuring I was matched with rewarding assignments that aligned with my skills and preferences. Their professionalism and efficiency made the process smooth and enjoyable. I appreciate their dedication to finding the right opportunities for me and their ongoing support throughout my assignments. They were both very responsive, promptly addressing any queries or concerns I had. I highly recommend 4myschools to any teaching professional seeking fulfilling roles in the education sector. Thank you, Katie, Paul, and the entire team, for your outstanding service!
From a rather slow start, not really the fault of 4myschools, my experience as a supply teacher has been great! I needed flexible times as I direct a company that provide after-school clubs in STEAM projects three days a week. 4myschools were able to get me work on the days that I wasn't working and even on days that somewhat clashed with the after-school clubs. I appreciate this immensely.
It's a real pleasure to work for 4myschools due to the dedication of staff. Katie Joyce is hugely efficient at finding you regular work as well as ensuring that a placement is right for you. It's clear that she is motivated to ensure the best possible experience for agency workers as well a the best possible service for the schools she directs us to.Communication from Katie fantastic and is always a pleasure - she checks in regularly, is incredibly efficient and always provides as much choice and information as possible when helping you select and new placement. She always speaks with enthusiasm, passion a deep knowledge of work in education, which is lovely to hear, and makes the experience of working for 4myschools a genuine pleasure.
I would highly recommend working for this agency. The communication is always fantastic and there's hardly been a day when I haven't had any work offers.
I have been working for 4myschools since October 2023, very professional, helpful and friendly staff.
The company has an easy-going atmosphere, effective communication, and Paul is very approachable and helpful.
After having a couple of years off from teaching, 4myschools made my transition back into the classroom easy and seamless with their quick and efficient sign up process. Jemma in particular has been professional, friendly and very welcoming- she has been at the end of the phone whenever I’ve had questions as this is the first time I have done any supply work. I was also in communication with Hope and Keyilah who were both equally as amazing. I can’t recommend this company enough!
4myschools have been a great agency to work with- since registering I was quickly placed into a long term placement which was my preference. My main contact has been Syvonne who has been very professional and personable to work with. Perks of this agency are they obviously have a great reputation with many schools in the area, are very quick to get in contact with and no timesheets!
I've had a brilliant experience with 4myschools. Everyone I have dealt with is so friendly, and genuinely invested in making sure they find the right job for me. The registration process was handled quickly and efficiently, and they secured a role for me very quickly.I would highly recommend 4myschools.
The entire process, from enrolment to placement, has been great. What was going to be a short term income, has now turned into a very flexible long term placement! Perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Lovely company to work for. Plenty of work, and always flexible. I'm never forgotten about, even when I don't work for periods of time. Paul is just lovely to work with.
My experience in getting on board with 4myschools has been easy and straight forward. I was well guided and supported by Paul Matthews on the steps required. Thank you
Hope has sent me to a lovely school and they made me feel very welcome,first job since i lost my husband.Would recommend to anyone looking to work in schools.
An amazing supply agency to work with. Big shout out to the impeccable service from both Paul Matthews and Syvonne Wilson. Not only do they both find me seamless work; they are both down to earth people who get what it is like in the mad world of education. Both have the perfect balance between offering you work but not hassling you when you are busy. Lots of other agencies get this very wrong. The best agency in the area by far; good rates of pay, a personal service and they clearly have a very good reputation in many local schools. Haven't regretted joining them for a second.
Very good agency to work with.I must say Bryony has being really helpful.
A brilliant agency. They really consider you as an individual and communication is always excellent - special mention for Paul, Katie and Syvonne who have been great!
I will not hesitate to award Paul Matthews & 4myschools 5 stars for his communication abilities and consistence, has excellent organizational skills and generally efficient. This is evident ever since I started communicating with him, everything he has promised is seen to manifest. Job well done, keep up the good work.Moya
Having worked for another agency for 2 years I didn’t know about 4myschools. I heard about them through a colleague and was impressed with his thoughts. I contacted them and within a short period of time I was offered work at a much better rate than I had previously been paid.Paul has been instrumental in this and I have secured a full time position until the end of this academic year. In future, I will recommend any colleagues to join this excellent agency.
4MySchools is a fantastic company to work for! Since signing up two years ago, I have been able to work whenever I have wanted to. This has included daily supply bookings as well as a long term placement in a school. Paul is wonderful and is always at the end of the phone if I need anything. It's great to be a part of the 4MySchools community and meet other amazing teachers Paul has placed. I cannot recommend 4MySchools highly enough.
I recently joined 4MySchools. The staff have made the process painless. Jemma (Chelmsford) is always helpful and considerate. I have only recently begun to teach in Primary schools and my confidence is low. She has helped support me with this, giving me assignments with schools that will suit me. 4MySchools really know how to treat their staff. Thank you.
An excellent agency to work for. Paul Mathews always works hard to find work that is suited to me. Highly recommended.
I deal with Alan M @4myschools for our cover/supply requirements, always very helpful, the supply/cover provided has been brilliant, they arrive in good time, are proactive, great with classroom management. Having a good bank of cover/supply available is so valuable to the school and the students
Huge thank you to the 4myschools team, who always answer my questions and provide support whenever I need it. This is the first agency I have worked with, and I am very happy to have had this opportunity. Thank you in particular to Katie Joyce for helping me secure work and for checking up on me, and thank you also to Paul, and to Olivia and Keyilah who helped me get set up and started 🙂
I joined 4myschools just under 2 weeks ago. Quick process with a fantastic team. Paul sorted work out for me immediately in a fantastic school where I am gaining more and more experience everyday. 110% recommend- very professional and great atmosphere to start a new journey with.
I highly recommend 4myschools, I have been with the agency nearly a year now and I love being a T.A. Bryony has always listened to me and found the positions that suit me best! What could be more perfect than choosing as and when you can work on the app. If you’re thinking of joining DO IT!
I have been so pleased with the service from 4MySchools. The registration process was quick and efficient with excellent support from Paul and the team who took the time to listen to what I wanted to gain from teaching supply work. They have an excellent knowledge of the schools that they support which means that they have found me assignments that match well with my experience. From the very start Paul has found me work and I have been busy since joining. Communication is excellent via text, email and the app. I would thoroughly recommend them.
I recently went through the process of getting on the books with 4myschools, and I want to highlight my positive experience with Olivia Mullarkey. Olivia is very warm, generous, and empathetic. She guided and supported me throughout the process, making me feel welcome.Even though I ultimately accepted a teaching position elsewhere and couldn't continue with 4myschools, Olivia's assistance was invaluable. Her dedication and personal touch significantly impacted my job search journey. I recommend 4myschools, especially if you can work with someone like Olivia.
I cannot speak highly enough of 4myschools for their outstanding work in supporting teachers like me in finding meaningful employment opportunities. From the moment I joined their agency, I was impressed by their professionalism and commitment to matching me with positions that aligned with my skills and preferences.Their communication was always clear, prompt, and supportive. I would recommend their services to any teacher looking for a supportive and reliable agency to help advance their career.
I have recently signed up with 4myschools and cannot fault them. Everyone I have spoken to have been friendly, professional and responded to my calls/ emails extremely quickly, especially Hope Lambert. It was lovely that she phoned me after my first day to see how I'd got on. I have already got supply days booked for the next few weeks. I would highly recommend working with 4myschools.
I really enjoy working with 4myschools and it has been an excellent help to me. Additionally, Thanks to Donna Payne she is very helpful and supportive and she calls to check how my experience has been. I would highly recommend working for this agency they are a great company to work with.
Exceptional experience with 4myschools. Jemma Terroni has been fantastic and I could not recommend her or the agency enough. The onboarding experience was concise and timely and I was out on assignment shortly after. Jemma checked in repeatedly throughout the process and also called before and after my first assignment to ensure everything had run smoothly for me. She was always at the end of the phone for any questions and compared to other agencies I have registered with, 4myschools is extremely professional and definitely my preferred agency to work with. Many thanks to Jemma for all her help and continued support.
I have sign up with 4myschools couple of weeks ago and they are very good! My registration process and compliance team were excellent! Paul Mathews managed to find me work that is suitable to me and my schedule very quickly. Also, i found communication and bookings via text or email great. I highly recommend 4myschools. Marianna
I can't recommend this teaching agency highly enough! They've been incredibly supportive and easy-going throughout my entire experience with them. When I decided to make a career change, they were there to guide me every step of the way. Their support was invaluable, especially during my transition period. They ensured I had consistent work in the classroom, allowing me to maintain my income and gain essential experience. If you're looking for an agency that genuinely cares about your career and well-being, this is the one to choose. Thank you for everything!
Bryony, Jemma, Helen & Syvonne have proved to be a highly effective & personally supportive team: from first allocating diverse assignments - to keeping in regular contact - not only to review feedback & flexibly respond to availability, but also in being genuinely interested in you as a person. I would not hesitate to recommend every aspect of the 4MySchools experience.
