    I’ve been with vibe for about 16 months now! I heard about them from an old teacher back in Australia. When I came over to London in February last year I went in to a meeting the day after I got here and I was working the next day! Starting with purple team was great thanks to Kelsey, she set me up with jobs and also helped with the London lifestyle! Vibe have provided me with both full time and supply work and have currently set me up with a great job a bit out of my comfort zone in a special needs school thanks to the SEN team! Thanks to Cam and Ellie on the SEN team they thought I’d be great in a special needs school so they asked to in for a trial and turns out I love teaching at this school and it’s been one of the best decisions for my teaching!
    Vibe is a great teaching agency and I highly recommend it to all teachers and teaching assistants!

    Vibe have been awesome for both myself and my girlfriend in getting us both out into awesome teaching jobs. Couldn’t have been an easier transition. Would recommend them to any teacher/TA moving to London. Love the community and social aspect as well.

    Vibe is the reason I’ve had such a wonderful time living in London. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive team to have guiding me in a setting that was so unfamiliar at the beginning.

    The team listens to what you, the teacher, need from your role within a school. Supply days? Sure! Full time? Sure! Part time with some flexible days in between? No problem! They truly work alongside you to create the experience you need. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Vibe have been the best teaching agency I’ve worked for since being in London. They are all teachers so know exactly what we’re going through every day. They also fight for us to get the best daily rate possible and keep in close contact about any updates or information. Not only do all of these things make Vibe amazing but they also throw the best parties!!

    As soon as I registered and met the Vibe team, I knew it was the right teaching agency for me. Everyone you meet at Vibe is extremely friendly and helpful and they enjoy getting to know you as a person in order to find the best teaching role for you. The agency hosts many social events throughout the year which means there are plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with other people in London and I’d highly recommend this agency to anyone looking to teach in London.

    It’s been five months since I started working with Vibe and they have been outstanding to work with. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a few different teams and all of the consultants have been exceptionally helpful – big shout out to the Purple Team who have been my main team to work with! All of the teams though have been fantastic. They are always wanting to make sure that I’m happy in my job and enjoying every experience I have in London. They’re also quick to let me know when there’s a social even coming up – a definite must if you’re keen to meet some new like-minded people!
    As for the work… The schools I’ve been sent to are great! They’re always a close distance to my home which has allowed me to get a real feel for the area I live in. You can tell that there is a really great relationship between the consultants and the schools as well, as there’s never any surprises (like no work being left, or the school not knowing who you are!).
    Definitely get in touch if you’re considering teaching in London!

    I have been with different agencies before, but nothing compares to my experience at vibe! From the minute I joined they were amazing. I work with the Orange team and every member of the team has made me feel important.

    The schools I have been sent to have been great and when I have had a bad day they have not sent me back! I have been lucky enough to find a long term supply block with them and enjoyed that greatly!

    I would pick them for work any day of the week!

    I heard about Vibe while I was back in Australia, planning my big move to London.
    I signed up with them and instantly they were a huge help. Not only were they always there to answer any questions I had about the work I would be doing, they were so helpful with all the little things too. It certainly made my move so much easier.
    I’ve been here for 3 weeks now and I’m so thankful I have a company like Vibe in my corner. They are always positive, helpful and super friendly. From the minute my paperwork came back they have made sure I am working as much as possible and are always there to answer any questions (and I ask a lot of questions).
    Would definitely recommend

    Well, where to start. I’ve been part of the Vibe community for the good part of 3 years and it’s been an absolute blast. From starting out with Paul in little old Cookham to moving into the big smoke I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Vibe are amazing at what they do and it’s no wonder they are regarded so highly in the teaching agency department. I started with Vibe and never wavered as I always knew I was with the best.
    Massive thank you to everyone I’ve been in contact with over the past 3 and a half years and London wouldn’t be the same had I not joined those years ago. Big shout out to Willa Grant and Jacob Hart who have been my rock these past couple of years. Thanks for everything lads.
    Highly recommended!

    I joined Vibe a few weeks ago. I am returning to teaching after a long break.

    Vibe are very active in finding work and I am happy to working in schools so near the end of the summer term. They are sensitive to my needs and always contactable.

    Assignments have been followed up and it is good to be able to talk about school related stuff. I do feel supported.

    With a dyanamic, can-do culture at Vibe,it feels good to belong to this team.

    Usually these sites are for people to attack certain agencies, but I thought it was time for someone who had been with this agency for a while to shed some light on the good side of them…

    I started working in London with a rival agency full time for a year and was not enjoying it one bit. Yet, a friend of mine was working with Vibe at the time and convinced me to jump ships, and it was hands down the best choice I have ever made.

    As soon as I came to Vibe, they have been nothing but straight up, welcoming, inviting and wanting me to enjoy my time in London teaching.

    Since I started with them in February, I have worked every day guaranteed, whether it be in Primary schools, Secondary schools or SEN based schools. They are so diverse with their range of schools, they cater for everyone. And to make it better, they were able to find me a school that I have fallen in love with and continually return on a daily basis, first off working one day a week full time and now pretty much full time supply.

    But it is never always smooth sailings. You have to expect working with an agency that the periods of first week back after holidays and the last week of terms will always be difficult to find work, but they do go out of their ways to make sure they can find you some work to tie you over.

    However,in my opinion, what sets Vibe apart from other agencies is their chilled, laid back feel and their social aspect. If its hosting a State of Origin drinks, to Barefoot Lawn Bowls, down to their orientation and drinks, they are always keen for a catch up and to genuinely see how you are. The consultants are always friendly and so down to earth you want to have a chat with them!! Seriously, you will not regret signing up with these guys!!

    Vibe is the only teaching agency I would go through working over here in London. The Vibe team are very easy to talk to and are more than happy to help answer any questions and queries. All the staff are super friendly and pardon the pun, but have a great vibe about them!! I have had work every day that I’ve wanted it, and the schools I’ve worked in have been great. If I do have an trouble with a school then I know that I can tell one of the Vibers and they will help me out. They stay in touch and check in on a weekly basis to make sure all is going well. I would highly recommend Vibe to any teachers that are looking for work in London – definitely a 10 out 10 from me!

    After joining another teaching agency, it was clear the second I joined Vibe that they were different! Vibe were friendly, helpful and reliable! They listened to my requests and were able to get me just the work I was looking for. The agents are down to earth and relatable as they are teachers themselves and know what supply is like. I love that you become part of a community and meet people through attending their social events. Can’t recommend Vibe enough!

    Vibe has been very consistent with providing you work and taking into account of your preferences of what year level you want to teach. I am pleased with the service and support that i have received from the vibe team! Kelsey from the purple team was GREAT! She have been helpful, friendly and supportive all the time. I will recommend vibe to my family, friends and anyone who is looking for a teaching agency in London.

    I had signed up with two other agencies before I left Australia but my whole teaching experience changed for the better when I was recommended Vibe (a recruitment company started by a couple of Aussie teachers) from a fellow Aussie I met on my travels. From the very first meeting at the Vibe office, I was made to feel welcome and a part of the Vibe Family. All the staff were warm and enthusiastic and always professional and well organised. I was placed in some great schools for casual teaching and before long they found me a longer term placement in a great school that was close to where I was living. And there is the social side of Vibe… regular social events, be it sport or casual drinks at the pub… there is the opportunity to meet loads of new people and I made some lifelong friends. If you’re going to London to teach … Vibe is your only to-go!

    Dishonest agency.
    They pretend that they are good and positive, but they are bad people, especially Elise.
    Sometimes they call to ask you how is your date, but when they send you to a crap school never call.
    And suddenly they many not call you again.
    Rate is just 58 for TA/CS and 110 for Teacher. You also need to scan the timesheet.
    Avoid!

    Vibe was one of the teaching agencies I contacted for teaching work, before arriving in London. Not only were they extremely friendly and helpful, they made my move to London so smooth and stress free.

    I was lucky enough to be placed in a great team, who found me a full-time position at an amazing school which I worked at for over a year.

    I would definitely recommend Vibe to friends and fellow teachers :)

    Can not fault Ross and the team at vibe during my time in London. Within days of arriving placements were organised and I was teaching in schools across London. At the start of the next school year, Vibe were able to secure me a 12 month contract at a great school in north-west London. This allowed me to get the right experience to progress my career when I returned to Australia.

    Absolutely fantastic teaching agency!

    They were amazing in contacting me while still living overseas to get all my paperwork sorted so that I could start work within days of touching down in London.

    As soon as I met the team, I felt like part of the community which is what I needed when first landing in a foreign city not knowing anyone.

    I have been given work EVERY SINGLE DAY for the last 6 months and never had to travel more than 1 hour to work to some fantastic locations in London.

    Cannot recommend Vibe enough!

    Vibe at the beginning is an ideal agency. Friendly guys, beautiful women, handsome men, induction days and drinks. But later, if you aren’t Australian or British or someone who secured a contract you may have problems. They send you for supplies, but actually they are secret trial days. If you don’t secure a contract,they ignore you. I would suggest Vibe, only if you’re inexperienced. Then you can work with much better agencies.

    I have been a member of the vibe team as a supply teacher since January. For an overseas teacher moving to London they have been, and continue to be, supportive and proactive in supporting my move. I first made contact 10 months before I moved just to get the ball rolling and they would contact me regularly and keep me on track in terms of following up regarding paperwork and references so as soon as I graduated I could move over and start work.

    The unique service that Vibe offer is the client support. My agent and I chat at least fortnightly and this has been such a positive to me settling into a new job in a new city. They have done everything they said they would do and this has meant my move has been successful. I know a lot of people that teach for the agency and some just want part time, and others want full time and have the opportunity to cement themselves within a school due to the trusted agency.

    Vibe have made my first year of teaching safe, supported and secure so I can enjoy working and living it up in London.

    I’ve been with vibe for almost a year and a half now and I have nothing but positive things to stay about the agency.
    They provided such a soft landing for me in London, everything from work to accommodation to a social life. Since arriving in the country I haven’t gone a day without work, in a range of different schools. One of the draw cards of the agency is the fact that they are all teachers so they can relate to the position in which we are in – really putting our needs and wants first. They are always on the phone ready to give advice, hear about your day and just general chit chat which is reassuring when you first move here!
    However, the BEST thing about vibe is the social aspect. The chance to meet so many awesome people at the many events and gatherings which the company hosts.

    100% recommend!!!!!

    Being a part of Vibe Teacher Recruitment has been a life changing experience for me. From the minute I phoned up to inquire, I was welcomed with open arms and it only got better from there. I made a majority of my London based friends through the Vibe community by attending inductions, parties, events and through the schools I worked at. The teams that looked after me made sure I always went to the best schools and was prepared for success! Although I’m not currently working for Vibe, I will always be a Viber and recommend this fantastic agency in a heartbeat!

    Joining Vibe has made my London experience. A company full of teachers who have been in your position before allows for understanding most of us need, moving over to a new country or just finding our feet when teaching in London.
    All the consultants have taught and still teach in the schools they work shows as they have been honest and able to prep me about specific classes and schools before my days.
    They found me exactly what I wanted and I am now working full time in a great school in central London which a great community of Vibers… and continue to be apart of the Vibe family with regularly catch ups at the office and fun events!
    Couldn’t thank Vibe enough for your support and hard work, I will couldnt recommend them enough!

    As with a lot of teachers coming over from Australia, I had no idea what to expect in terms of how supply worked, what schools were like, what pay was like etc. Luckily, after some initial hard times I was recommended Vibe by a friend and from then on my whole perspective of teaching in London was changed for the better. The teacher induction that they ran was not only extremely informative but was a great way for people new to London to network with people in similar situations and with similar interests. From then on I was a part of the Green Team and was extremely well looked after by Simon and Tristan who actually listened to what I wanted, got me to schools very close to home and gave me feedback on my days constantly which I found beneficial, especially when teaching in my first few primary days.
    If you’re looking for an agency who actually know where you’re coming from (they’re all teachers) then look no further than Vibe.

    When I first got to London I registered with Vibe and they were great! They really listened to what I was after and helped me get out into some fantastic schools. They were very honest about travel times, expected behaviours and gave excellent info about the schools!!
    The social side of the agency is fantastic. I met a lot of teachers who were starting out their careers in London which was fantastic. Highly recommend them.

    Absolutely terrible agency!. Probably the worst I have come across since moving here. I spoke with their manager and told him that I wanted £140 a day for supply and he changed the subject by saying “yeah we’ll get to that later” and proceeded to ask me about my hobbies and interests back home. When we finally did get to the topic of pay he told that they wouldn’t be able to pay me anywhere near £140 a day and offered £120 through PAYE, to be paid monthly!, and £135 a day if I joined an umbrella company. When I queried him about the reason for this, he gave me some vague response about how they have fees. Why couldn’t he just get to the point and tell me what they could and couldn’t pay me instead of pretending to be my friend.

    I also thought that they are extremely unprofessional, it is really ironic that an agency called ‘Vibe’ has such a strange cultish like atmosphere full of fake people in its office. I thought the whole layout of the office was really weird, and the way the consultants dressed was a bit too casual for my liking, the whole place to me seemed to resemble a University common room and not a professional teaching agency.

    It was for these two reasons that I decided to not work with Vibe.

    I was recommended Vibe by a friend and I’m so glad they did! As an agency welcomed me from the outset like I was a member of their family and it’s been the same ever since. They have great schools but offer a lot of variety and options to suit anyone’s taste. Possibly the most important aspect of Vibe is that they try to help match you to the right school and any feedback you have about your experience is taken on board for your next assignment. This ensures you have the opportunity to go back to schools you really like (and can make an even more positive impression). There are too many individuals to name but I’ve been really appreciative of the consistent friendliness and support offered, from the manager Ross, to the teams that look after you day to day when you join Vibe – they’re first class! If you’re moving overseas and are looking for teaching work – do yourself a favour and give them a go. You won’t be disappointed. And you might even make a few mates in the process!

    What a fantastic agency!
    I joined Vibe as I was fustrated with other agencies – and I’m really glad I did!
    Vibe really offers something different; they really listen to what you want and go out of their way to meet your needs.
    I have worked with a few agencies now, and I always felt pressured to accept work that wasn’t suitable – but Vibe have never tried to do this to me.
    Also, the amount of work and rate of pay are both very good.

    Fantastic team of people! I always felt supported and they really make an effort to make things easier for you. They definitely didn’t need to provide all the social aspects that they did (i.e. events, drinks, etc) but they were always great and a wonderful way to relax and meet new people.
    I can’t imagine working with anyone else while teaching in London. They’re great!

    I’ve always had a great relationship with Vibe having been referred to them by a teacher I met in Dubai. I’ve worked with them on and off for over 4 years and have always had work on the days I was available.
    The staff are super friendly and the parties they throw are a great way to meet fellow teachers who might also be new to London.

    Vibe is a great community and professional work place. Always friendly, always helpful, always looking to make life and work in London enjoyable and practical. Karlee and Taryn (on the red team) were fantastic consultants and always bright and happy in the morning. Always answered their phones or called back. Ben (recruitment) was fantastic when we were first looking at agencies in Australia and made the whole process smooth and easy, which meant we could start working as soon as we arrived in London (in fact before we had even found a flat to live in). Travel was never over an hour without fair warning and schools were always well prepared for supply teachers.
    Thanks for the awesome work experience in London Vibe!!

    What a fabulous agency to work for. The moment I contacted them about registering with them, they were informative, prompt and friendly. Once I arrived in London I felt like I was with friends and family. They invited me into the office and shared stories and a lot of laughs. All the staff that I deal with are extremely helpful. I selected guarantee supply and they got me work everyday suiting my needs and personality.
    The schools varied which allowed me to gain heaps of experience and try teaching different grade levels. The staff would check back with me to see if I enjoyed the school etc, and what they could do to make the experience more worth while. There was so much work available. I usually got phoned in advance and they told me how to get there with email and text. I was supported the whole way throughout the placement. Vibe is a very friendly and welcoming place. The people that work there are living away from home and have taught in school that they send you out too so they know what you are going through and how to have a successful day in the schools.
    Would I recommend Vibe most definitely!!

    Vibe is a fantastic agency that not only worked to settle me into London schools but also provided opportunities to get to meet other like-minded people! I can not recommend Vibe enough for the support they continually provide even once you have been placed in a full-time position. I love that the people working in the office are all teachers or teaching assistants themselves so can 100% relate to all aspects of working in the UK education system. If you’re looking for an agency that provides genuine support (and A LOT OF FUN!!) look no further than VIBE!!

    If you’re an Aussie and not registered with Vibe then you’re mad. By far the best teaching recruitment agency in London. Best communication, best schools, best advice, best group of staff. They’ll find you a school you like. Pay you big bucks and ensure you remain satisfied. Only ever a call or text away. Plus the best social events in the business. Dress ups, free drinks, and a great bunch of people. No brainer for me. Vibe life

    Very disappointing experience with this agency.
    When I registered with Vibe, I was not informed that they required time sheets to be filled in by the school at the end of each day. As a result, I did two days of work for them at the end of Sept 2015 and I’m still waiting to be paid (Nov. 9th 2015). Since the end of September, I had almost twice-weekly contacted the agency to chase payment. Each time, I was advised ‘yeah, I’ve e-mailed the school but I’m waiting to hear back from them’. This afternoon, I rang the agency to be told the same as above. So, I asked for the school’s contact number – they gave me the wrong one. I then looked up the school’s number myself, rang the office – phone call lasted less than 3 minutes. I was advised that they just needed to check their signing in book for the two dates and they would confirm with the agency. Neither school nor agency could tell me how many phone calls the agency made to the school requesting same. When I rang the agency back, they first said they had rang the school and got confirmation. No. I rang the school. They responded promptly to my request! During this phone call the manager insisted that time sheets are my responsibility – yes, of course – had I been told at registration! Eventually, the manager blind transferred me to an employee in accounts who had no knowledge of the above so I had to explain myself all over again. Then I was transferred back to a booking agent I’ve not dealt with before, who was laughing and had no knowledge of my situation. At this point, the manager refused to apologise and said he would have to find out exactly who registered me. Next phone call – their excuse was the agent who carried out my registration does not normally do this, hence ‘he may have overlooked’ telling me about time sheets. It took me just one phone call to sort this out. Very poor communication and treatment. I will not be working for them again and I would strongly advise others not to either.

    Are you looking for THE BEST TEACHING AGENCY IN LONDON? Look no further than Vibe. From the very first day in contact with Vibe I was met with great warmth and care towards my arrival into London. This is a company that prides themselves on making your teaching experience a positive experience where they do their very best to tailor your skill set to the right fit school. Not knowing many people in London they provided extracurricular activities and social events to make the London transition even easier, where I have met some great friends. The staff are caring and understanding of your situation because they have been in that same position, they certainly aren’t ones that think of you as a number like some other agencies in London just trying to fill schools. The Vibe company and staff have made my experience in London unforgettable. You are met with a friendly voice at the other end of the line and they take the time to follow up each day to see how it went or even just a friendly chat. I was placed into supply days from day one and then moved into a full time position, whether you are looking for temporary supply or looking to try a great opportunity at full time work this teaching agency is by far the best in London and worth getting in contact with.

    To arrive in London with Vibe on your side is definitely the best way to land on your feet. They are a highly organised, well connected bunch who will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Incredibly friendly, warm and welcoming and providers of some fairly special events should you desire the social element. I will be recommending them to any teachers or TAs heading to the UK for the best quality teaching agency experience.

    Then VIBE is the agency to ensure that occurs. Before I had even left Australia to start my overseas adventure their awesome consulting staff helped and guided me through getting all the paper work done, so when I arrived I was ready to work. They placed me in an amazing school within my first week and from there the rest is history. I was provided with guaranteed work and was always in contact with the agencies staff, who always kept me up to date and informed with any news or information I needed to know about my work.

    I highly recommend VIBE Teaching agency for anyone looking for teaching work in London!

    I worked with Vibe for about a year and a half while i was on a two year visa from Australia. Friends of mine has gotten work with them and recommended i’d give them a go since I was interested in doing a teaching degree back home. During my time with Vibe I was placed in some fantastic schools as a TA (including a private school). The recruiters were always helpful and friendly and always told me what I needed to know. Its a very social agency as they quite often invite you for a catch up at their office. Their termly parties are also a blast.
    All in all I would most definitely recommend Vibe for anyone looking for teacher or TA work. Now I’m going back home with a great CV and experience.

    Vibe are a friendly bunch. They have a nice office, which will be used to lure you in and provide a fantastic welcome. They are a great agency, however, they can be a little dishonest and ignorant behind their whirlwind of enthusiastic positivity. I was sent to some tough schools at times 2 hrs away from my home, and given blocks in non specialist teaching areas. I do recommend this agency for the amount of work they provide but they are still an agency that could end up placing you wherever there is money to be made! If that doesn’t bother you and you’re looking for consistent work, enjoy massive agency parties and are a die hard aussie/kiwi, you will fit right in!

    I could not speak more highly of Vibe. Having worked for other teaching agencies in London, Vibe are without doubt the best there is. They are friendly, approachable and work for you. I started out with daily supply work and there wasn’t a day where my phone wasn’t ringing more than once with them offering me work. I am now currently working as a Full Time PPA teacher in a fantastic school all thanks to Vibe. The team were fantastic with helping me transition from Supply to Full Time work and even now they are calling me and helping me transition from my PPA role to my upcoming classroom teacher role.
    They are always up for a chat and are willing to listen to you and show an interest in what you do outside of the classroom setting. They put on events for all their teachers as a way to keep them happy and motivated and to also meet plenty of new people around London who are all in the same boat as you.
    I would highly recommend Vibe to anyone looking for any kind of teaching work as they are first class in my book!!

    I’d known about vibe having worked in a primary school in Chelsea for many years. The staff they sent were always keen to get stuck in and do their best for the kids and school and I count some ex and current vibe employees amongst my friends. My lifestyle has changed somewhat now and I now travel in the winter months, teaching English so when I’m back in London I’ve needed a reliable source of work. The teams at vibe are dedicated to making that happen and it has meant I can work flexibly but know that there’s always something there for me. They also encourage those new to working in schools and offer great advice and opportunities for more permanent positions. They also have a great extra curricular scheme with some great social events and prize competitions (I’m a bit biased there as I won a gopro!!). All in all they’re the goto agency in this part of London and are the right choice for teaching work across the board.

    Vibe teacher recruitment offers a professional yet extremely personable service. Their consultants are friendly and motivated to find you work that will suit your skills and your lifestyle. The social aspect of this agency is a real perk, especially for young staff new to London, but they cater for teachers of all ages and levels of experience. The ‘vibe’ of the agency really is an electric one, and when you step into their fantastic offices for induction you get swept up in the atmosphere. It is a very positive place. I would highly recommend this agency to any teacher or teaching assistant whatever your work requirements.

As a teacher coming over from New Zealand, they set me up with great London schools and introduced me to some like minded people who I still stay in touch with and now regard as close friends.

    I was very fortunate to be supported by Vibe personally and professionally when I lived and worked in London.

    The staff at Vibe put a tremendous effort into preparing me for teaching in London. They very clearly explained the documentation and paperwork I needed to bring with me from Australia in order for me to teach in London as quickly as possible. I taught in schools that were located in central London, which meant that minimal travel was required each day. I was provided with more than enough work to support me financially whilst in London.

    Vibe were also very committed to ensuring that my wider experience in London was fun and enjoyable. Vibe hosted many great social events to enable fellow ‘Vibers’ to meet one another.

    I have highly recommended Vibe to a number of my friends who have gone to London to teach. Keep up the great work, Vibe!

    I moved to London as a teacher and found Vibe to be the best. They helped me out in getting the right job for me. I always had work and they always listened to want I wanted. The staff are super friendly, professional and caring not only about my work needs, but about ensuring that I felt comfortable as I had just moved to London.
    Whenever another teacher moves over to London I always suggest Vibe as my number 1 agency that I would use if I ever moved back over.
    You guys are great! Keep up the good work.

    Vibe is one of the best if not the best agency in London. I have been working through vibe for almost 4 years now and I have never encountered a problem where the yellow team was unable to help me. They are an amazing team with friendly helpful Staff. You feel like part of their family from day one. Claire from the Yellow team has always looked after my best interests and made it easy for me to contact the yellow team when I need any help, be it to negotiate a good pay rate, nice schools or just to say hi. When you are placed at a school vibe sends you nice and easy to follow directions and would call you up during your journey just to make sure you are still fine. Vibe is like a big teaching family and for a lot of us our family away from home.

    Best agency!
    After months in London looking for a good job, I was told about Vibe from a few friends who had also had great experiences with them.
    I contacted Vibe and they instantly got the ball rolling for me and had me set up in a school that I absolutely loved within a week.
    Everyone I met from the agency were super friendly, genuine, and positive. They made things really easy for me as they are reliable, professional and understanding of your circumstances. The security of having guaranteed work every day, and phone calls from the team checking up on how you’re going is also very comforting!
    Not only are Vibe efficient in getting you work they also put on fun social events and have a real family feel about them.
    Out of all the agencies I had signed up with in London, none of them can compare to the Vibe. I recommend signing up if you are looking to teach in London and have no doubt that you’ll be looked after!
    Special mention to the Pink team for being so lovely and placing me in such a great school :)

    I worked for with Vibe for over a year and a half and I’m giving you the most honest review I can. I am now working with 2 other agencies and before writing this I wanted to ensure that my comparison was accurate. If you are younger, new to London and looking for a social aspect to your teaching agency Vibe may be for you. If you are a PROFESSIONAL and EXPERIENCED teacher I do NOT recommend Vibe.

    Problems with Vibe:
    – the pay. I automatically got a raise when I signed with my other 2 bigger and more professional agency.
    – some of their schools! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into a classroom in the morning with absolutely no plans. This hasn’t happened to me once with the other agencies.
    – if you are a supply teacher for them, some recruiters give you a very hard time if you want to take a day off (even though you are entitled to this) One male recruiter even moaned at me and asked me why I’m taking the day off when there’s money to be made.
    – when you DO take a day they don’t mark it on the system and you repeatedly get called with options for working (even though you told them you’re taking the day off)
    – they have a very old-fashioned system of keeping track of your daily work. You have to fill out this annoying form at the end of each day and wait around the school office to get someone to sign it (or sometimes I’ve had to hunt someone down!) and you then have to take a picture of the top copy with a scan app and email it to them. My other agency does everything for me! No time sheets or anything. Many agencies also do everything online (including allowing you to book days off, so no questions asked!)
    – I personally found their overall work ethic very unprofessional

    Vibe is good if:
    – you’re looking for a more social aspect to your teaching experience here…

    My opinion is…you can find this in London anyways!

    Vibe Teacher Recruitment was amazing during my time in London. It was my first time travelling to London by myself so I needed to make sure I was set up with an agency that would look after me. Vibe was recommended very highly to me by colleagues back home in QLD. As I have a mortgage back home I had to ensure that I had the promise of work once I arrived in London. Vibe was fantastic! Usually they deal with supply but they took a chance with me and organized Skype calls with both the agency and a great school in Notting Hill. They were fantastic with helping me organize all my paperwork so I had nothing to worry about once I arrived. They paid well and often called to see how my experience in the school was. The staff at the agency are teachers themselves so they could relate to our experiences in the schools. The agency was very much a ‘family atmosphere’. They provided many get-togethers for the teachers to ensure that we felt supported and didn’t become too homesick! The staff at the agency were always very honest and positive. I cannot thank Vibe enough for their support during my time in London. I had an unforgettable year and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to live and work in London!

    I could not recommend Vibe more. During my time in London they went above and beyond offering professional development, flexibility and ongoing support. The schools were always central and I was given an insight to each school community, which was very useful. The Vibe team are professional and approachable. Definitely a teaching agency that will always go that extra mile!

    Vibe teacher recruitment really value education and put teachers and teaching assistants first. The people working for the company are all teachers and therefore speak and act from experience in london schools.

    I have received exceptional service from Vibe for over a year. They have always listened to my questions or concerns and follow up on everything. Their open communication is greatly appreciated as you can rely on their honesty and willingness to talk about anything you need.

    The vibe team have made my transition to london easier as they host fun social events and also support you in your teaching. Claire and Jake in the Yellow team have been absolutely fantastic! They have sent me to some beautiful schools and are always happy to have a chat. Ross, Michael, Carly and Allen in the Secondary team look after me in my current placement and have been wonderful!

    When making a decision on a teaching agency to join when you move to London- don’t hesitate- join Vibe!

    Signing up with Vibe in 2008 was one of the best decisions I have ever made living in London. I’m still with them now in 2015. Vibe takes care of you and are flexible in catering to what kind of work you are looking for. I still get regular work booked in schools, all different kinds of schools throughout London and Vibe totally support my situation of only wanting to do day to day supply work at the moment, so that’s what they find for me. However, if you are looking for something more permanent and you are good at what you do , there are so many great opportunities that I’ve seen open up because of Vibe for some friends of mine (who I met through Vibe at Vibe parties and schools I’ve worked in) and they are now happily working full time now in London Schools. They are an incredibly personable, energetic , honest , enthusiastic and progressive company. They constantly check in with you , communicating with you to see how you are doing and finding the school they have placed you at, and you know they are there to help and support you.
    The reassuring and unique thing about Vibe and what really sets them apart from other agencies that I have experienced, is that they understand and value education and educators, as they have all worked in education themselves. They also are aware of how difficult it can be for some people when they are new to a big city like London, because they too have experienced that and can relate. They get it, which is refreshing!
    They provide so many fun social opportunities, like parties, competitions, classes in at their office like Pilates, work drinks, they also have some sports teams too…I’d join but I couldn’t catch a ball even if it had super glue on it and a picture of Ryan Goslings face. From what I can make out , they are a company that is always evolving and improving , no doubt they’ll be more fun things to get in on in the future. Anyway, when you go to their office (which is so cool you feel like you’ve had a make over when you come out because you feel so great) they are super kind, friendly and warm when you meet them , you’ll get a good feeling and know you are doing yourself a favour by signing up with them…because you are!
    In my experience with recruitment companies, Vibe are gold. I don’t normally like writing reviews, I’ve never really cared enough about anything to go to the trouble of reviewing something to complain or sing praise. However, Vibe are genuinely the best company I have ever worked for and I am that thankful I joined, so I happily will sing their praises. I also wrote this review because I believe will get good Karma because if you are reading this and it makes you go sign up with Vibe that means you must be a good person and you are getting good karma back. Anyway , have a lovely day whoever you are. Peace.

    Vibe was by far the best agency I worked through in the UK. Other agencies gave me the run around and were really playing games as to how much work they had and how much they would pay me.
    Vibe guaranteed my rate of pay, and would call me everyday to check my availability and try and book me into as many teaching days as they could.
    On the days when I wasn’t pre booked, they were the first agency to call me in the morning.
    Great staff. Great agency!

    What a fantastic experience it is working with Vibe. I say experience because it no way can I define this purely in a work context. Vibe are far more than a work finding agency. Having registered with a number of other agencies I found vibe excelled far beyond that of others.
    This came down to the consultants guidance and transparency which was extremely refreshing. Red team adopted me and my place within this family was soon established, Rachel the Red team leader has built great relationships with her schools and this is reflected in the response and appreciation all schools had towards me when working with them.

    For two years I lived and worked in London as a primary school teacher and I can’t thank Vibe enough for every opportunity they provided me with professionally and socially. Arriving in London for the first time could have been such an overwhelming experience for me, but Vibe helped me find my feet by immediately finding me work in some great schools as well as providing lots of social opportunities to meet lots of great and like minded people.

    What I liked most about Vibe in comparison to other UK based teaching agencies, was the enthusiastic, personal and professional approach each consultant had to their role. I could always rely on my team leader to support me through any tough situation I faced in my role and it always felt comforting to know that they actually understood and could relate!

    Really you could spend hours reading all of these reviews to try and work out if this is the agency for you but save yourself some time and give them a call or go into the office for a chat and find out for yourself what they are all about.

    Would highly recommend!!!!

I felt instantly at home with guys from the first meeting and had consistent work as soon as my CRB cleared. They’re down to earth, reliable and actual teachers too so they get it!!! They were like a second family to me in London and I miss Friday drinks and vibe party’s so much.

    What a fabulous agency to work for. From the moment I arrived in London I felt like I was with family (which made the whole transition of living in another country a lot easier).
    All the staff that I dealt with were extremely helpful. They help me set up a bank account, get a SIM card for my phone and show me the basics of London public transport.
    The schools varied which allowed me to gain heaps of experience and try teaching different grade levels. The staff would check back with me to see if I enjoyed the school etc, and what they could do to make the experience more worth while. They took on my feedback and responded to me with strategies they put in place.
    There was so much work available. I usually got phoned in advance however there were a few last minute call ins. That was fine as I was texted the directions to where I was going and supported the whole way.
    What I loved about Vibe was the whole family experience and the fact that their staff are teachers. They understand about going out into new places and want to make the experience the best possible for you. Would I recommend Vibe-most definitely!!

    Vibe was an amazing agency to work for during my time in London. I cannot emphasise enough how lucky I feel to have come across them after 4 long months working for another teaching agency.

    Vibe’s values of family, health and happiness first really shine through in all that they do. They really care about you as a person and making sure that your teaching experience in London is a positive and memorable one.

    The consultants are down to earth, always available and very supportive. Having an office full of Aussies and Kiwis also gives you a taste of home every time you visit.

    I enjoyed all the schools I went to through Vibe and ended up staying at one of their schools for over a year.

    Vibe is also great for meeting likeminded Aussies and Kiwis through their many social events such as Friday afternoon drinks, boat parties, and while I was with them, I even went to the Ascot races and spent Christmas in the French Alps surrounded by Vibers.

    I strongly recommend Vibe to any teacher heading to London. If it wasn’t for Vibe I probably would have ran home after those horrible first four months with the other agency. Vibe totally changed my teaching in London and overseas experience for the better.

    I worked with Vibe while in the UK for a couple of years. They were recommended to me by a colleague, who talked them up, and they didn’t disappoint.

    I was offered work from other agencies who tried to pressure me into going places and doing things I didn’t want to do. The Vibe guys listened and then offered choices that were suitable for my needs. The consultants knew the schools because they taught in them too. Sometimes they would offer advice on how to deal with students and a couple of times I was out teaching in schools with a consultant from the office. It gave me confidence to know that they were in the trenches too.

    They also organise great social events, so you can get to know other teachers and know the consultants that call you in the morning – it’s better than talking to a stranger.

    I have every confidence in rating and recommending Vibe – they were professional but friendly from start to finish. I’m sure if you talk to any people who have taught in London they will tell you the same thing – I had a couple of mates who ended up teaching for them after I did and they were happy too.

    I arrived in London from Australia to study a masters degree, but found it difficult to find recruitment agents that were flexible, professional and friendly enough to deal with my schedule.. Vibe put me a role as a TA and were more than accommodating..

    I really appreciate the time I had at Vibe over the past two years. The process of starting was very easy and stress free, and continued throughout my time there. The communication from the consultants made working as a supply teacher an enjoyable experience during the work day, and also with the ongoing social life that flows from the agency. I am really happy that I only ever had to join one agency in my two years as a teacher abroad, knowing that they genuinely cared about their candidates and provided employment for every day that I was after it. I would be very confident in recommending Vibe to any teacher seeking employment in the London area.

I can summarise my dealings with Vibe in five words: professional, courteous, understanding, thorough and fun. It felt to me as though I was being managed and placed by a recruitment team, as opposed to a team of recruiters. Highly recommended!

They have a great understanding of the needs of their teachers and schools and make a conscious effort to please all stake holders( not always easy). I always felt valued and well informed. Correspondence with my team leader was always prompt and helpful. I am a more “mature” teacher and was treated with great respect . Vibe have developed a winning culture of fun and acceptance without losing sight of their commitment to education. I have recommended Vibe to many of my colleagues.

    I lived in London for the last 3 years and the best thing I did was sign up with Vibe. I had a blast working as a supply for Vibe as it meant I was rarely out of work and it lead to a more permanent placement at my favourite school. So if you find yourself in London town, do yourself a favour and sign up with Vibe – if nothing else they will probably buy you a beer!!

I have just finished a year of teaching in a long-term role through the SEN team and have just been through another interview process for the next school year with the Secondary team (thanks Ross!) and have now obtained the position that I was really hoping to get!! :) I feel extremely blessed to work for a company who are always looking out for my best interests and are continuing to work extremely hard to make my dreams come true. Not only have I received fantastic service, but I have made many lifelong friends, and for that I will be eternally grateful. Don’t look any further if you’re searching for an agency to join – you won’t regret working through Vibe! :)

    TAKE THE NEGATIVE “Anon” REVIEWS HERE WITH MANY GRAINS OF SALT.

    REMEMBER: This website is owned by someone and they have their motives.

    This is a honest, happy, fair group of people first and and education support company second.

    I have had and heard of nothing but good things from, of and to do with this agency. Always upfront, prompt and professional in their communication. Always.

    I have worked for them for 18 months and would want to work for no one else.

    They have always taken my concerns into account. They have always had as much, if not more, of an eye to my career desires and needs as I have.

    I have nothing but praise for Vibe. I joined them over a year ago and have received regular work and was put on their guaranteed supply.
    Since being put on this I have worked every single day in schools quite local to me. There have been a few where I had to travel a little further but I was happy to do so as the consultants were upfront about it and regularly look after me.
    I have recommended a lot of my friends to this agency and they have all had positive experiences with Vibe also.
    To sum up they are the best agency I have worked with and I have worked with quite a few.

I have had work every single day since my arrival six weeks ago, and find the staff easy to get along with and very helpful. I am on 125 a day but I understand that you can negotiate down the track so I’ve been trying to put in the hard yards and earn a good reputation before bumping up my price. I have enjoyed a mix of schools, some better organised than others, and they are never too far away because Vibe uses a zoning system. The crew have helped me out whenever I needed it and a couple of weeks ago I went to my first Vibe party, which cost 5 pounds and for that you got four pints, a t-shirt and a good night out with hundreds of other teachers! It was there that I learned that there are plenty of satisfied Vibe teachers, despite what this website suggests.

    Vibe’s best selling point is that everyone who works at the company is a teacher, so they’re great to talk to about any school-related issues. Overall I have been very impressed and would recommend Vibe to my friends.

    I joined this agency in June, and have had two days work in the time I have been registered with them. They signed me up straight away with promises of lots of work, however all I have had is a job which took me two hours to get to, and a very late booking job. I just feel they promise but don’t deliver; unless I want to join them on a social night out! I’m now very disillusioned with agencies, and feel Vibe have wasted my time.

    Anybody looking to use vibe to help them get a teaching job please dont bother! i registered with them and spent much time with calls to them and visiting there london office to make sure they had everything they needed to complete my application so they could start looking for work for me,i didnt hear anything for 3 weeks and when i repeatedly emailed and called i got nothing back,oh once they answered the phone and told me somebody would call me back but that never happened,i even paid £55 for a CRb check they told me to get done,i feel i have wasted time on this agency when i could of spent that time looking for work myself or with a actual agency that finds you teaching jobs very disapponting thanks vibe crew..for nothing!
