Slightly concerned about all the recent posts about Key. I've just today signed up with a third supply agency in Bristol (as my last two offered me either no/next to no work) and the woman cheerfully said she'd put me down to be paid by Key (not heard of them before) as I'd get at least £1 more a week (woohoo.) I was told all about claiming for stationary and keeping a record of mileage etc. Nothing was said about a fee and I was handed a thin leaflet to explain everything. Hmm, having read it (didn't take long), it seems out of date as regards the claiming for expenses and, from what I hear, the new rule about sampling. It looks like a big faff for nothing - I have to pay Key a fee AND pay my agency's NI??! I take a packed lunch every day (as you never know what to expect at a new school) which apparently I can't claim for (anyway, how can I provide proof of the expense when the food is all part of my big food shop). In my (admittedly little) supply experience, I haven't incurred much petrol expense - at least, not much more than the minumum £8 fee Key will charge per week. I'm thinking about calling the agency tomorrow to ask to be taken off Key - can I do that as I've only just registered with them? Or is there anyone out there who ishappy with Key and it really IS worth the fuss?
