Had an interview with the company. Explained after interview that I have decided not to take the job because of salary. Employee was very rude and unprofessional in an email back to me. Stating that I am wasting my time at where I am working now because I am not using my degree. Just very unprofessional especially for a education company.
Pros
Rude
Cons
Quick process

Wanting to change my career into education if wanted to make sure I was making the right decision so decided to get experience. Monarch has clients across all sectors of education, primary, secondary and PRU's. I was able to get the experience I needed and get a full time permanent position in a school. The team at monarch are incredibly supportive and professional, making my time with them pleasant and enjoyable.
Pros
supportive team
Cons
irregular work schedules.

Wouldn't even bother to apply to this company, completely unprofessional and unhelpful from start to finish. They will charge you for a DBS and then tell you "there is no work".
Pros
None

I worked for Monarch as a supply teacher/TA and not for them directly. The staff there were always kind, friendly and helpful. It did not take them long to put me into a suitable role and they were efficient and friendly when sending me through the details of the position I was being sent to.
Pros
Continuous supply work.
Cons
Supply work

A nice office to work in. Good location in the city and a friendly, pro active team. I only worked there temporarily for 4 weeks. I carried out tasks; preparing files to be scanned and scanning the files onto the in-house system and archiving, Filing away documents in archives, Typing up customer details into Excel spreadsheets and sending emails.

I found monarch through a course I did at the job centre they was great at first plenty of work for a school cleaner but once I had found a permanent job so wasnt available all the time things changed.i decided to leave straight away as I was finding it difficult with family life but you have to give one weeks notice it's ironic really they expect you to go to a job within an hours notice.
Pros
Good hourly pay
Cons
The staff need retraining on how to talk to there employees

Number of work days varies depending on time of year. Pay rates don't increase, despite your experience. I can choose the days I want to work, which suits me

From interview to actually working I feel supported, good instructions given and good follow up. Because of the nature of supply teach it can be sporadic mostly in hookah. Work in suitable locations was sourced whet possible and I appreciated this.

My first contact with this company was with a consultant who never processed my application and background checks. Happily when he left they got back in touch with me and worked with me to sort out and justify extended periods of career breaks. I have been hugely satisfied with the mode of contact, the regularity of work, the communication and the daily rates
Pros
ease of communication

They will find you work, but they do not care about you. They do not listen to your availability, personal life or willing commute distance. I do not recommend this company. They never respond to emails but will bombard you with emails when they want something from you. AVOID

Some people are friendly but it’s like they don’t understand your requirements and expect you to be available all the time specially when you have explained you have an appointment and they get funny with you.

The only thing they care about is the client. They say and make all sorts of promises that they have no intention of fulfilling and think the people who work for them are nothing.

Relaxed working pattern for supply teachers, no pressure. Staff are friendly and helpful. Umbrella company unfortunately takes some of you pay if you are a supply teacher so be aware of this when budgeting.
