Bob gets a phone call from a friend called Wendy. Wendy has recently registered with Axcis and has been offered lots of work in schools near her. She tells Bob that he should register with Axcis, too. When he gets work, she will even get a referral bonus of shopping vouchers which she can buy lots of lovely things with! She might even treat Bob to something off his wish list.

Bob isn’t so sure. But he decides that if Wendy thinks it’s good, then it might be worth a try, so he spends 10 minutes registering online.


The next day, he wakes up to a phone call from Axcis. That was quick! The friendly voice on the other end of the phone tells him that there is lots of work in his area and that he should come into the office and complete his registration. Bob is sceptical, but he’s not working at the moment, so thinks “why not? I’ve got nothing to lose!” So he goes along to the Axcis office.

The consultant he meets is really friendly and the whole process is easy. They even had jobs to offer him for that very week! Bob is surprised and impressed! He starts work a few days later. Bob is happy!

After a couple of weeks of doing day to day supply work in schools, Bob is offered a long-term supply role at a school which has a new student who needs one to one support. Bob is even happier!

A few weeks later, a parcel arrives for Bob. It’s a gift from Wendy! She got sent some shopping vouchers by Axcis for referring Bob to them, so decided to buy him a gift with some of her bonus.
