Great communication & management

Indeed featured review

Every day is difference and interesting as you are hardly are in the same school or class each day. You are allowed to work as many days as you please for any amount of hours that suits you. You get paid weekly as a supply.

Love you when they want you

Initially they were good but they don't look after you once they have you. When you don't have work you are chasing them they are silent. Sometimes they will move other candidates in to your contract leaving you high and dry. They blow hot and cold.

Great to work for

Eden Brown is a great supply agency. The staff are very helpful and welcoming, in my experience they have been there for me through any time I have approached them for support or just general advice within my school placements. The only down side is the pay, however this goes with the job (supply TA) itself being a low paid job across the board, rather than being a fault of the company - for example, you will not get paid in school holidays. Additionally, job security does not apply to supply work in most situations due to the nature of the work (this can vary). However, the staff are great and have kept me updated 100% of the way in letting me know of any changes or upcoming work.

Pros

Great management/support

Cons

Low pay

Easy to get along with

I found this company helpful when looking for work, although not much work was forthcoming. The opportunities quickly dried up, and there was little communication. When I did do supply, the workplace was excellent.

Pros

helpful staff

Cons

not a lot of work given

Refusal to pay what they owe

After completing a supply teacher booking for Eden Brown out of the Manchester office I did not get paid when I was supposed to. The staff at Eden Brown were obstructive and very unhelpfull. This company is not to be trusted.

Pros

none

Cons

Dont pay when they are supposed to

Had to chase money each week

Admittedly I was employed via this company over five years ago, I had to chase my wages every few weeks as they never went into the bank on time then out I of the blue last year I had a tax request from the inland revenue for £600 that had not been paid while I was working via this agency even though I was paye, as I resisted joining their umbrella scheme. Not a good experience.

Cons

Pay not on time, tax not paid.

Very interesting a diverse

I worked in many services so it kept it interesting and varied. I learnt a lot from all the services, And also how things should not be done as i have seen a lot of mistakes made over the years. I worked with a very diverse service user base.So I gained a huge amount of knowledge skills and experience during this time.

Pros

Varied and interesting

Cons

Unable to settle any where due to working in different places

Agency work

Agency work that was not really beneficial as there was no permanent place to be offered. I was covering a very dysfunctional Hostel in Attelborough Norfolk, that housed up to 12 males, the management structure was extremely poor resulting in the clients continually breaching H&S concerns without consequences to their actions. This post left me extremely disillusioned. The actual agency manager that provided this opportunity was very understanding of my situation and could only apologies for the behavior's of the actual contracted staff of the housing provider which was Genesis Housing, it certainly put me off working with this provider again.

Pros

No pro's what so ever

Cons

Very Poor inconsistent mamagement structure

This recruitment helped place me in suitable job roles and supported my cross over from temping roles to a permanent role well. Easily contactable and friendly.

Passion in delivering for their clients and candidates to the highest standards

An energetic environment which believes in delivering the highest standards and putting their candidates and clients first. I cant fault the work they put into finding me candidates, I have used Eden Brown for the last 15 years and won't use another agency!

Pros

They dont over promise and undeliver!

Cons

Time to time the candidates arn't there right away, but expected in a candidate short market!

A help in the time of trouble

Thanks to Eden Brown I was able to do what I always wanted to do, work within the Housing sector. This company enabled me to work in varying positions by which I gained so much valuable knowledge and experience. It lead me to a permanent position as Housing assistant with the then New Prospects company. I am grateful for the valuable and positive experience.

Pros

Constant work experience

Cons

None
