Protocol Education

A great agency to work for. Easy to work with in Australia as well as in London and made the move over a breeze. Never short of casual work and whilst some days the work was about an hour away, most of the time it was close to home. [...]

There's always work available whenever I need it. The consultants are friendly and on your side if anything goes wrong that isn't your fault.

A very professional and friendly agency. I have only recently joined their books and I have been so impressed with the way they have informed me about work opportunities. Always very efficient, polite and friendly, I would highly recommend anyone trying this agency as they will do their best to find work for you and are very good at tailoring the work to your needs.

Redbox Teacher Recruitment

I was offered a paid trial day in a lovely well located school and have since been offered work in other good well located schools on the days I have been available. [...]

Teaching Personnel

9.9 out of 10
Teaching Personnel are excellent and have exceeded my expectations. I have been working as a teacher through the Tyne/Tees Secondary branch (Teesside area). I was hesitant about what to expect but Teaching Personnel were supportive. [...]

Servoca Education Resourcing

9.9 out of 10
I joined the agency as an NQT (a referral from a colleague) and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I made. My consultant was (is again!) Rene Gordon and from the moment I met her she was very helpful and genuine. [...]
