How is Z Staffing different from a recruitment agency?

I can only work during certain times, are the shifts flexible?

Can I accept shifts that are close to home for me?

How much will I get paid?


At Z Staffing, we prioritise educators' needs like no other.
Unlike traditional recruitment agencies, we offer a tech-driven platform that puts you in control. Say goodbye to endless phone calls and uncertainty. With our intuitive Z App, you gain access to a vast pool of quality shifts, faster than ever. Our revolutionary technology ensures you get the flexibility, efficiency, and better pay. Once part of the Z Staffing team, you'll benefit from our commitment to your professional development and wellbeing, rather than being just another name in a database.

Absolutely, flexibility is at the heart of what we offer at Z Staffing. Our app allows you to set your availability according to your personal schedule. Whether you’re looking for shifts during specific hours of the day, certain days of the week, or even particular times of the year, our platform caters to your needs. This means you can balance your work with other commitments, ensuring a healthy work-life harmony.

Yes, you can. We understand the importance of convenience in your work life. Our app enables you to choose shifts based on location, allowing you to select work that is close to home or in areas you prefer. This feature is designed to minimise your travel time and maximise convenience, making it easier for you to integrate work seamlessly into your life.

Your pay rate with Z Staffing will be competitive and reflective of the value you bring as an educator. We pride ourselves on offering above award rates, along with bonuses and incentives to reward your hard work and dedication. The exact rate will depend on factors like your qualifications, experience, and the nature of the shifts you undertake. Your talent advisor will discuss this with you during your interview. The efficiency of our app allows us to operate with lower overheads, which means we can pay our educators more competitive rates than other agencies.
