Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It is good work if you are at university and want to work at your convenience. You will hardly get 20 hours of work per week. There is a big communication gap.

Very stressful with little help if any

What is the best part of working at the company?Worked for them for over 2 years, had a lot of issues with incorrect wages that took 4 mouths to get corrected. And trying to resolve any issues is a task alone, you will just keep getting messed around.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Getting told to email mail any issues, which don't get resolved or alot of times no replys even with management. Had to get union and other work bosses from other companys involved, for randstad to act and correct issues which but me though a lot of stress.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Work environment is clean and tidy, but seen a lot of trouble regarding working What is a typical day like for you at the company?Hard work for 90 percent of jobs

Fantastic support and great rates of pay.

Staff are very supportive and are always available to help. Rates of pay are favourable and lots of positions are available. I would really recommend them

Fair enough

Well looked after by management. Lots of good people and few bad. Night shift premium is decent same as overtime or weekend. Whenever happens. Also they have afternoon shift premium too

Varied role, Great Manager

Enjoyed my time working here, varied work which was interesting and was given independence and control over my own workload, remote flexible work conditions.

Not great

IT system is ok. Not too hard to book and send reports but it was better/easier on the old system. Biggest disappointment was no pay rise in 5 years.

Boring place

It’s very unfair work culture it doesn’t matter how hard you work their is a lot of favouritism in the work environment the management skills are very poor. You are just a number . there is no job security.


Regular breaks


Unsociable hours

Good opportunities, for block assignments.

Good opportunities once you have secured the hours that you want, which you don’t always get as there is competition for set weekly hours. Candidates are matched with students accordingly. I have been working online as part of the NTP initiative and have had some good hours. Friendly, professional staff.


NTP initiative can offer regular weekly hours.


One doesn’t always get what they select.

Micromanage your you, arrogant staff no room for progressing to your own clients, basically you’ll be a sourcing for someone else for years, the only good thing is they got a coffee machine.

They were okay but your experience is very much down to your manager. I started off with a great manager but the last was not professional and micro managed the team.

Overall good but the schedule can be unpredictable

Great especially for those looking for a side job. But bare in mind you'll have weeks completely booked in and others with no hours at all. It's tricky to get the right students looking for long term support so while the job itself is easy, getting the best opportunities is a challenge

Micromanagement and blame culture

Micromanagement on a daily basis. Good pay and work life balance but you will only progress if your face fits. Bullying culture goes all the way to the top.

Laid back easy work

Pretty easy work which you’re trained on site to do, friendly staff members and okay pay. Management on site not the friendliest but other than that it’s a nice place.

Always something to learn

I learned a lot of new things in each lecture I attended and had the opportunity to explore the UClan Campus each day. Employer was always considerate.


Learning opportunities, great management


Unliveable salary, travel too burdensome

Rewarding job but frustrating set up, little support

The job is rewarding as your work is supportive and helps with student achievement, however, Randstad is frustrating to deal with. Email reply time is around 2 weeks, sometimes not replied to at all and 3 out of 5 times, the phone rings out. You are supposed to use the online portal to manage timesheets etc and there is information on there, however some things are missed that need specific answers. Staff often have different answers on the same topic. I guess you are self employed so are to make decisions on your own to an extent but would be helpful to feel more supported and have more training, specifically on note taking. My payments have always been accurate and completed on time, so no complaints there and the pay can be quite good, and you are paid weekly.

Good enough for now?

Good company, nice staff. I would say for someone who eventually wants to train and be a teacher to avoid agencies though, you’re rarely taken seriously, the pay (particular at Ranstad) is not enough to live off, and when it comes to holidays you’re not paid for your time. And not to mention they recruit you under the guise of instant work ASAP but it takes about a month for things to actually get moving. It’s a good company but seems a little all over the place. Teaching assistants deserve more than £75 a day, especially when working with SEN children. SEN schools pay over £150 in a day!


Weekly pay


Pay isn’t good
