CRT specific information:

Registered EzStaff CRT's expressly acknowledge and agree that:

Only schools approved by the individual CRT will be able to search and hire them - in order to expand employment opportunities, CRT's are recommended to select as many schools as possible within their travel time area.

They are potentially “competing” with other CRT's for every position, and are required to keep their calendar updated and respond to job requests asap. This will increase their reputation and employability amongst employers thus yielding higher results.

CRT payment is regulated by State Government Legislation, and details are available online or from any school office.

EzStaff takes no responsibility for the work environment provided by schools. It is the responsibility of the CRT to investigate their rights under the Contract of Employment via the Education Department to resolve any employment issues.
