TestimonialsView all Testimonials

I approached Step by Step because we needed supply staff for the school.

The team at Step by Step helped me by taking the time to visit the school and find out about us. They researched what sort of environment the staff would be working in and what we expected from them.

The result was a personal service that ensured we got good staff to suit our needs. Phil doesn’t just send a person, he tries to fit the person to our needs. He takes the time to find the qualities in a person that is right for us as a school.

One thing I liked was how honest they were if they did not think a person was the right fit for our school.

I would recommend Step by Step to people who need to feel confident they are getting the best service. They go the extra mile to make sure we are satisfied and happy.
