“I have worked at the University through Balfor as a Student Support Worker since October 2014. I have enjoyed this role and have had the opportunity to work with a variety of students with different needs. Balfor have been a reliable agency to work through and are always available to answer any questions and offer support.”

“Callum was the consultant I dealt with. He actually took the time to find me a placement which matched my criteria for an educational setting. He has been responsive, organised and has genuinely worked hard to find me a setting I will be happy in. What a lovely man and excellent recruitment agency. They put you first as opposed to their pockets.”

SEN School

“I have worked for Balfor Recruitment for about 6 months now and have had the privilege of supporting fantastic students. The variety of subjects makes the role even more interesting and the passion from the lecturers is really engaging. It’s great to be part of enabling students to reach their academic goals.

In addition Balfor will add to this pool of workers over the summer period thus ensuring an adequate number of support workers are available. Our recruitment process is quick and easy. We will advertise immediately when needed and will interview candidates as soon as they are able to meet with us. Reference’s and DBS checks are requested as soon as the interview has taken place. Candidates can be turned around very quickly and in some cases this is within a couple of days.”

“This is just to say how much I have enjoyed the work that Balfor provided me with over the last couple of years. Acting as a Support Worker is a wonderfully fulfilling job to do. Working with so many lovely students and accommodating their conditions is so rewarding, fulfilling and such a happy experience.

A big ‘thank you’ to Balfor for always being quick to answer any queries and in passing on relevant and up to date information. I believe this was done from last July, at least, in somewhat difficult circumstances. Your ability to divvy up the work, answer our constant queries and to liaise and act as an axis between the university and us as student support workers, is always done courteously, promptly and professionally.

I hope that you will be able to pass on to me this type of work again for the academic year beginning September 2016 and look forward to working with you all again.”

“I can confirm that we have worked with Balfor for over a year.
With adequate notice, Balfor have been able to provide a pool of support workers to meet demand and on occasions been able to provide support at short notice. Balfor help us to induct their Support Workers through an initial meeting to go through key information about our service delivery and how to claim; this is proving useful.

We have had feedback that some students like the Balfor Support Worker that has been allocated to them and are providing a good service.”

“I obtained my role as a Note Taker at the University about 4 months ago. It was my first role with Balfor, and I enjoyed the job immensely. As well as Note Taking, I also got to do exam scribing and reading as well as sighted guiding for the Disability and Dyslexia service. The University is a lovely place to work, the facilities are great, and the staff and students are friendly and welcoming. The role allows you to work flexibly and with plenty of autonomy, along with supporting students with varying disabilities to work towards their degree.”

“I have used Balfor for my supply staff needs for more than a year. Ambe is always on hand to pick up the phone and covers everything that I need in an efficient and timely manner. The service that I receive is professional, helpful and honest.”

Birmingham Secondary School

“I have worked for Balfor Recruitment, working within universities for two years in total with a gap year in between.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Balfor and the University (having been a student myself some years ago) and look forward to supporting the students in whatever way possible. It has been wonderful meeting students studying different degrees and being able to help them get the best out of their lecture. The feedback I had from one student is that if I can take his notes then he can focus on the lecture which he certainly found helpful.

Balfor have always offered me as many hours as possible to support the students and alongside my other job I am very happy to cover as many hours as possible. I enjoyed the job very much and would have happily done this full time if the hours were consistent and covered the summer months. However, I know this is not possible.

As we are approaching the summer and there aren’t any lectures I have returned full time to my previous job but I would certainly consider taking as many hours as possible in the future.”

“Balfor are very helpful and our consultant Catrina takes the time to understand our needs. Balfor work hard in finding the right candidates for day to day and long term. The candidates that we have used have been excellent supply teachers”

Birmingham Primary School

“I have always found Scott approachable, professional and efficient. Scott found me a well matched school placement and ensured I was happy and settled through regular communication via email and phone. In addition to this Scott is easy to contact and will return queries and issues with efficiency and speed.

I have recommended Balfor to many colleagues as I have found Scott an excellent ambassador and representative of the company and its niche approach in a saturated market.”

SEND Teacher

“I have worked with my recruiter Catrina Adams since January. From the first phone call to all paperwork that needed to be completed "Cat" has been nothing short of superb. I Would highly recommend Balfor and in particular Catrina to anybody looking to join the agency.”

“I've joined Balfor recently and I've been lucky to meet Siobhan Lamb. She helped me to believe that I can find a job in school after 5 years out of work in education! Even better, she found me a job in a few days! She's great! Thank you Siobhan”
