I started my job in April 2022, honestly, I worked only 4 days because some open requests were not convinced to my schedule and some of them were too far from my house.When I applied I informed that I want a specific role as a maths teaching assistant because I have bachelor of mathematics in my home country, however, the only role I have gotten so far as a teaching assistant in day nurseries, nevertheless .Overall I appreciate them because they support me all the time before I start my job I receive a text message and after I finish also to support me .I am grateful for your support.

Pros

Best agency around.

Absolutely fantastic agency. They have worked with me to ensure I have had the best possible experience working with them and the schools they work with. Their app is revolutionised the way bookings are handled, making it much less stressful to decline or accept a job. I have felt appreciated for the work I have put in whilst working with them and not just another number.

Pros

The app and the people

Great company

I worked at Zen on a short term contract. It is a great company with great people who are working towards the same goal: improving education. Company culture is great and every single employee and the owners are extremely kind, helpful and understanding. Managers acknowledge their teams’ efforts and they value everyone and their contribution. Everyone is eager to help and learn from each other. It has been a great experience working at Zen.

Pros

Social events, on site gym

Cons

None

Long hours and terrible pay

They seem to expect you to be a robot, working overtime very often and expecting people to be enthusiastic depsite wages being well below industry standard. Sell a culture of dreams, typical of most start-ups that don't have a strong foundation. Management are also incredibly rude.

Pros

On-site gym, good location

Cons

Long hours, poor management, low pay

Excellent platform connecting teachers and schools

Zen Educate are different from other teaching agencies because they are more so a platform for teachers and schools to connect. Therefore teachers get paid more and schools pay less. The staff are always polite, friendly and professional. They are great at keeping in contact and their app is very easy to use. They just seem to get better and better and I have had an extremely positive experience so far. I would be 100% likely to recommend them to a friend. Well done Zen Educate.

Pros

Excellent app, excellent staff, no timesheets which are a pain

Cons

None

A tech alternative to recruitment agencies

A great team that work in the interests of both teachers, TAs and schools. Zen Educate are transparent to customers in their communication and pricing, and are always willing to go the extra mile for their teachers and TAs.

Pros

Easy onboarding process; great customer service
