Branch Specialities

The Randstad Education office in Chester covers over 300 schools within our three key local authorities; Cheshire West and Chester, Flintshire and Wrexham. Our Chester office was established in early 2012, with Randstad Education having previously worked for many years with schools in the area, from one of our other locations. The office was created following high demand from our schools for good quality staff and for an equally as good service from Randstad Education as their recruitment partner. We constantly receive good feedback from our schools with one head teacher commenting recently that the quality of candidates and the service they receive from us is poles apart from their previous supplier!

We are experts in the area of education recruitment and all of our staff have personal experience within education, be it as teachers or coming from teaching families. One member of our team is also on the board of governors at a primary school in a neighbouring local authority. This adds to the depth of knowledge that we have within education and also enables us to foster good links with other schools and head teachers in the area. We truly are experts in our field.

We are actively seeking primary and secondary teachers as well support professionals to join us in helping support local schools in areas such as Cheshire West & Chester, Flintshire and Wrexham. If you have the skills and commitment to join us, please contact us to see how we can support you in your next career move.

Working in the Community

Randstad Education’s Chester office is always keen to work in the community and to give something back to the schools that we work with. We have previously been involved in sponsoring a swimming team for a season, which made a ‘big splash’ with the children involved. This then generated lots of additional media coverage for the swim team and attracted new members! We have also worked with one of Cheshire West’s primary schools who held a memory day. During this we were involved in all aspects of the day and spent a lot of time making teas, coffees and juice for parents and staff.

We are also regularly involved in events within schools such as business and enterprise within secondary schools and also careers fairs and young enterprise events where we talk to children about their aspirations for the future and discuss what they would need to do to get there. We also run regular competitions with our schools such as our recent poetry competition where pupils could submit their poems and could win book tokens for their school. These competitions are normally run on a seasonal basis with competitions at key points of the year such as Christmas, Easter and summer. This gives us a great opportunity to give something back to the schools and children that we work with on a daily basis.

We are exceptionally proud of the good relationships that we have with our candidates and schools and continually strive to find ways to work in partnership and give something back to the local community.

Candidate Testimonials

"I registered with Randstad Education in October 2014, and my only wish is that I had done it sooner. The staff in Chester listened to what I wanted to do within education, and within a week, they had found me exactly what I was looking for. The post was initially for a seven week term, and during this time, I was contacted regularly by Randstad to see how I was getting on at the school, which I though was very professional. 

Thanks to the staff in Chester, the school where I work have kept me on for a minimum of 18 months and my job is something which I genuinely enjoy. I can't speak highly enough of the Randstad team, and their professionalism and efficiency were exemplary towards me. "
Mr J 

"I have worked for Randstad Education Chester since September 2014 and what a brilliant year it has been! I was very apprehensive when I first started supply teaching, worrying would I get enough work? Would the schools be friendly and close by? The team in Chester put my mind at ease right away and were so approachable nothing was too much trouble. They have found me consistent work in fantastic schools which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have had lots of work in one school in particular so have been able to really get to know the students and feel like part of a team. Can't praise them highly enough, looking forward to another great year! Thank you all."
Miss S

"Randstad has been an exceptional recruiting agency.  They have been fast and extremely effective. They got in touch straight away and after an interview to find out my wants and needs for work they arranged an interview finding me a suitable and ideal position. The support I received and feedback from the agency was detailed and rapid. I always felt I was being prioritised and would definitely recommend using the agency to anybody looking for work in an educational setting.  Many thanks to all the team there and I will definitely be using them again when it comes to taking my next step on my career path."
Mr R

"When I first came to teach in the UK I felt quite literally lost within the education system. Fast forward a year, and I find myself with a permanent job and numerous insightful teaching and learning experiences. Needless to say it took a little while to get here but Randstad made it possible and supported me the whole way. Randstad has guided me through different schools, year groups and settings, always having my best interest at heart. Thanks to Randstad I have had a thoroughly enjoyable teaching year and have never felt more secure,looked after and appreciated for being myself."
