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.
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.
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.
not a lot of work given
Remotely supported left up to the individual to ensure training and development of the individual. |Eden Brown acted solely as an intermediary, All roles I obtained approached me directly and Eden Brown acted as the vehicle to process my salary.
Helpful finance team
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.
Dont pay when they are supposed to
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.
Pay not on time, tax not paid.
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.
Varied and interesting
Unable to settle any where due to working in different places

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Eden Brown?
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.
No pro's what so ever
Very Poor inconsistent mamagement structure
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!
They dont over promise and undeliver!
Time to time the candidates arn't there right away, but expected in a candidate short market!
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.
Constant work experience
