I have just registered at an agency in London, who were very positive about finding me work almost immediately (although obviously made no promises). However, I would like a more objective view. Does anyone have any experience working for an agency? Do you earn enough to pay the bills? I only just have enough saved up for my PGCE and therefore have no wiggle room on spending that money. I would try to supplement my earnings with private tutoring, but this plan is still completely hypothetical as I haven't completed the assessment for that agency yet. My instinct is telling me that this kind of work will be financially unreliable but I'd just like to hear from someone with experience.
