Half Term Heroes

The supply staff who are working their socks off are the ones who are rewarded most at Connex Education… take a peek at who we selected as our Half Term Heroes!

For our schools, it’s great to be able to celebrate the hard work of those teachers who are really helping us all out. And for our staff, this is our way of recognising the efforts you’ve gone to for us – we really do appreciate it. See who we hand selected as our half term heroes below:

London branch

Winner: Asuncion

Recruitment Consultant Richard’s comments:

“Asuncion is a Nursery Assistant who has been an outstanding candidate with excellent timekeeping and reliability. She always gets back to us promptly when we leave her messages and the feedback from the nurseries about her relationship with the children has been fabulous. She has been a regular at a nursery in Hackney where they have been requesting her on a week basis with a variety of shifts. She is more than happy to work 8 until 6 shifts and has been an excellent help.”

East Midlands branch

Winner: Marie

Recruitment Consultant Jonny Lloyd’s comments:

“We are nominating Marie Bennett for our Half Term Hero as she has shown incredible dedication and drive towards a very demanding SEN assignment that she has secured on a long term basis.”

Merseyside branch

Winner: Gaynor

Recruitment Consultant Jason’s comments:

“Gaynor has been an asset to Connex – and is really deserving of her award! She has a brilliant can-do attitude, and has always been highly reliable with bookings. Gaynor has always received such high praise, and would be one of the first people I would send into a new school as I have full confidence that she be highly impressive. She has already eased herself into a number of schools who will call and book her each week.”

Warrington and Cheshire branch

Winner: Clare

Recruitment Consultant Vicki’s comments:

“Clare has been amazing for me during the 1st half term. No matter what time of day I ring her (unless she is working) she answers the phone. She is up dresses and ready 1st thing in the morning and has travelled up to an hour for me! She has re-arranged days for me with other agencies. She makes my life so much easier, always prepared, always receiving great feedback from the schools.”
