During furlough the payroll team have always been efficient in providing my wages on time and have given full explanations on request whenever I have had queries and concerns. A friendly and efficient team.
I have not had any work placements over the last 4 months but every effort has been and is being made by the team to provide me with the type of work I am seeking at this time. They are very obliging and always provide a personal touch to their busy and demanding role.
The team at Bridge always respond to texts emails and calls and I never have to wait long for a positive response. They all have a very friendly telephone manner and I always feel they have my interests at heart when finding me work. Very professional and extremely understanding.
I have never had a problem with communication with Bridge as there is always someone to take my calls and pass on messages efficiently.
It is as a result of my confidence in Bridge as my employer that I have now use Bridge Education as my soul agent and no longer feel the need to work with other agencies.
I can totally recommend Bridge Education as a professional agency for education.
I genuinely would like to heap praise on both Bridge Education and PeoplePAYE. Working with such down to earth, straight talking, professional and humane people is literally a life saver. Friendly, genuine staff just being super sharp and humane making sure, in any way possible, their clients could be supported. I have nothing but respect for these people who could have easily accepted the sit-back-and-sort-it-tomorrow approach. But they did not. Every announcement from the Chancellor was immediately acknowledged and feedback given to the client. Peace of mind in these times is as important as survival.
In the same light I would like to also acknowledge the incredibly friendly and straight talking service offered by Bridge Education. They have exceptional understanding of your needs and their Placement-IQ is very high. They are people-readers. Hence, as a client, you will never be “dumped” in an environment your CV may have implied. Instead, after consultation, they will appreciate your experience, knowledge and character before placement. This will ensure every contract is so well suited to the individual. And they will never let you down on that. I have been teaching for 20 years in all environments, and anyone who knows me, knows I do not compliment easily. Credit where credit is due.
I am a TA that have been working through Bridge Education within various Schools.
I would like to say that the Team is absolutely amazing, a very kind and supportive team all the time = 5 stars
It has been a pleasure to be part of Bridge Education team as a Supply TA, I have the intention of continuing with them as I believe they are extremely professional at all times. Keep up the good work!
This is the only agency I would recommend in Lancashire. Sharon is honest and the day is long. Communication from the team is excellent and warm. You really can’t go wrong signing up to Bridge Education.
I have worked with man supply staff and no one has a bad word about Bridge Education. Pay is fair and is always on the side of the teacher which is a change from others that I’ve dealing with. Sharon herself, I would consider as a friend and someone to talk to, if an issue arisen.
Improvements – a hard one this – be nice if Bridge held a social to meet the staff and other supply staff to swap information and stories.
The team from the discussions I have had from requirement and throughout I can’t fault the team, all very friendly and helpful.
Communication I feel it has been clear and helpful and I can’t fault it.
The Team Sharon, Joni and the team are always on hand for advice and support with any occurring issues.
I will be emailing availability/early bird phoning in from September.
Really looking forward to going back and returning to a standard working day.
Bridge Education was recommended to me from a past temporary employee. She said they were absolutely amazing to deal with. Thanks to them she has now secured permanent employment in a job she loves. I have only been with Bridge Education for less than a month. They have worked very hard during this time to offer me various temporary contracts. The first contract I was assigned to was absolutely perfect! I would highly recommend Bridge Education!
I was looking for work, applied for a Job Via an employment site then received a phone call from Sharon at Bridge. She was very helpful, listened to what I wanted and found me the perfect job. The whole company is professional and reliable. I am now employed directly by the company she placed me with. I could not be happier! Thank you to the team at Bridge!
