‘We are a secondary school for pupils with a broad range of complex learning needs. I have used Randstad now for at least three years to fill day to day, temporary and longer term vacancies. The Service provided to our school has been second to none. I know that I can contact Randstad Care team and receive a prompt reply to request for staff, they are able to match staff to meet our needs and is flexible, friendly but also very professional. I would have no recommending their service to others.’
