Dan R.
Childcare owner @ Adam’s Academy

Z Staffing is a fast and reliable service. There were the occasions when I posted the shift to be covered within a span of as little as in 30 min and someone was able to pick the shift. The people so far who have come to our service are very reliable and ready to take initiatives as working as part of the team. Price wise I would say Z Staffing is definitely economical as compared to many other agencies. The app is very easy to use and pretty straight forward. Nikita, who works as our support person for our service from Z Staffing, is very helpful. Strongly recommend Z Staffing.

Centre manager @ Amiga Montessori

Z Staffing, with their efficient app and supportive staff, has been instrumental in swiftly meeting our Centre's urgent hiring needs. Highly recommended for their prompt service and user-friendly platform!

Dilek S.
People & Talent Manager @ Aspire Early Education & Kindergarten

We have been using Z for almost 12 months; and have been happy with the team so far. We have been able to fill our shifts relatively quickly; and Z has been able to fill almost all our shifts that we have posted. We have been fortunate to have a few wonderful educators to support us. The app was easy to use. Though the chat function can be convenient to reach out directly to the educators, it can be a challenge too when educators use the chat to cancel their shift at the last minute as we don’t monitor our phones when working in the rooms. The Z team has been very helpful on the occasions when we had this issue, and they tried their best to re-fill those shifts for us.

Ivonne Y.
Centre Director @ Froebel

Z Staffing has been a reliable service for accessing agency educators. We have a high rate of shifts being filled, with a consistency of return educators which has been integral to our staffing arrangements when accessing external educators. Communication with the team at Z Staffing has been efficient and thorough and organising shifts via the Z APP supports our teams with effective planning”
