I have been using Axcis for just over a year now and I have to say that they are the most committed, personable and flexible education recruitment agency I have had the pleasure of working with. They never fail to provide us with teachers and teaching assistants of the highest quality that are well matched to the needs of our pupils and our school.
As a special school, it is crucial to the pupils that staff are sensitive, creative and adaptable. Due to their expertise and interest in special educational needs, Axcis always provides staff that meet our requirements. They have taken the time to listen to us, to get to know the school, the staff and needs of our pupils.
It is the honesty, integrity and professionalism of the Axcis team that makes it such a first class recruitment agency. Their service is hassle-free and if I ever need someone quickly or need to cancel a booking or change my request, it is done straight away and without question.
I am extremely happy to recommend Axcis to any educational setting and I will continue to use their services as they are our number one recruitment agency.
Specialist SEN College, Bristol
As a busy London primary school I need agency support staff I can rely on and who I know will be of a good quality.
The consultants at Axcis work hard to ensure that the staff they send are of the highest quality - proactive, diligent and responsible. They take time to find the right person for me and will not send me staff who they know don't fit the brief. In my experience, often when a school starts to work with an agency they get very good initial service which can tail off as the agency can become complacent. This is not the case with Axcis, who have given me consistently good service. This is the reason why they are one of only two agencies I will deal with.
Head of School
Being able to find good supply staff for short-term and long-term placements is vital to the efficient running of our school. Axcis is our supply agency of choice and has been for several years for the following reasons:
We can rely on a suitably trained person in SEND being provided, even at very short notice.
The agency takes time to understand what our needs are, even to the extent of having face-to-face meetings to discuss possible candidates.
The agency provides us with teachers and teaching assistants suitable for the vacant positions and cover requirements.
The calibre of the supply staff is high. In several instances we have gone on to appoint the person provided as a permanent member of staff.
The agency is friendly, approachable and professional.
Communication is effective via phone, email and text.
Where staff are possibly not right for this environment, the consultant will accept the feedback and find a replacement quickly.
Information about payment and long-term conditions is made very clear.
Our consultant is highly efficient, knowledgeable about our school and our needs and I can trust her judgement when she recommends staff. She makes a point of being involved in aspects of school life like attending the school plays.
Head of School
I am writing to thank you for your support, and that of Axcis with regards to our supply teacher needs.
Every morning that I get the “call” from a member of our staff saying that they will not be in school due to sickness, I no longer have that dreaded “oh no” feeling. Instead, I just contact you and somehow you always manage to find somebody for me.
Your telephone staff are always very polite and couldn’t be more helpful. Since starting to use your agency we have very rarely needed to use any others.
Please keep up the good work.
