stay in touch
Contact your Randstad Education office on 0800 800 204 each week by Thursday and let your consultant know your availability for the following week. You can also phone after 7.15am on each day you are available for work. If you have contacted the office the previous afternoon, then there’s no need to ring the following morning.

if you’re sick or unable to work
Don’t worry if you’re sick or can’t make the assignment. Just call in as soon as possible so we can make other arrangements. Our offices have a 24-hour message service so no matter what time it is, you can leave us a message.

if you’re lost or running late
The last thing we want you to do is get stressed because you can’t find the centre or school you are going to be working at. Without the correct address, getting lost is possible. So before you find yourself running around in circles, just give us a call and we can help you out. Plus, we’ll let your supervisor know that you’re on your way. Easy!

saying no
If you don’t feel 100% sure about accepting an assignment, it’s okay to say no. We’ll understand. It’s important that you feel that the role and match is right for you.

getting paid
Timesheets must be correctly completed, and signed by yourself and your supervisor prior to your pay being processed. Please note, overtime needs to be approved by your supervisor prior to it being worked. It’s also a good idea to always carry a blank timesheet with you while on assignment and always keep a copy of your approved timesheets just in case it’s not received by our payroll team. Blank timesheets can be downloaded from our website.
