I have been with OPOGO - Thames Teachers - for over two years now, covering daily supply. They have been very good at finding me work but I have to say that before the lock-down I was often given work in schools in the South, whereas I live in the East. This often meant my day started stressfully, as I would have a long journey time and I worried about being late. But once in the school things were usually fine. Recently they have started to offer me work nearer where I live which has been great as no one wants to sit on the Tube for too long these days if they can help it. I like the OPOGO App - the information available in the Community Hub has been very helpful, as well as having the school details. Because my availability is already on the App it means that I don't need to phone each morning - that can be hard for people sometimes as it can feel like begging. OPOGO has taken this stressful factor out of a supply teacher's life. Before the lockdown TT's would often put on CPDs in their offices and I found them very useful but there zoom meetings have been good too. My present Consultants are good. Raj, Karan and Jessica have been helpful and friendly. Previous Consultants have also been good.

I've been with Thames/Opogo for a couple of years now and I'm happy doing day-to-day Secondary supply. The Staff are always friendly, helpful and professional. There has always been a good level of work available and the schools are of a high calibre and generally not too far away so that journey times are not a chore first thing in the morning - very important! They clearly have a good relationship with the schools they work with and are very focussed on having an even more positive relationship with the teaching staff on their books. I definitely recommend.

Opogo have been very quick to find me work, and have allowed me to remain very flexible. Lillee was incredibly helpful in getting me started and helping me with sorting an advanced DBS, and Hannah has since found me a very fitting school. Jess has also been very good at keeping in touch and ensuring I am still content. Overall, incredibly satisfied with the service, and would recommend to anyone looking to supply.

Worked with OPOGO for 5 weeks, but got in contact with them over the summer holidays. It provided me sense of security straight after months of lockdown. William and Mehreen were really kind and managed to find me a wonderful school to work for. Excellent open communication, would happily recommend!

Opogo have been amazing! Everyone at the agency have been so supportive, friendly and professional. Raj and Ashley have been absolutely amazing with helping me find work in lovely schools. They have always been there to support me with any issues or questions I may have, all the while catering to my needs. I have had a tremendous experience so far with them and the schools they have provided me with. The agency will definitely be recommended by myself to family and friends who are looking to work in primary and secondary education.

I've been really impressed so far, I've had regular work in good, interesting schools and I've felt supported at every step by Raj and Ashley and indeed everyone else I've talked to. They seem to really care about helping me to achieve my career goals and have done everything I could have asked of them so far. I've been particularly pleased with how proactive they have been with communication, calls and emails are returned quickly, and required action on my part is related quickly and clearly, any required action on their part is done efficiently and honestly. Thank you, Opogo, you've been a huge help so far.

I had been unemployed for a very long period of time till I came across Opogo through my lovely consultant Mehreen, she has provided me outstanding support and guidance to get me working based on the experiences I have but also address and concerns which I may have. Also, Mehreen, Natalie, William and Raj have been there throughout for me by looking out for many opportunities for me and especially during this pandemic they have been doing their very best to help me get back to work. The more I say it is very less but the whole staff of Opogo warmly welcome people into their agency and take a holistic approach to care for their emotional, physical and mental needs. The schools provided by the agency are all fantastic and even if you have any issues opogo are there to help but also the schools are lovely and do their best to help you. I have and would further highly recommend Opogo to other people who would be interested in teaching and educating young minds as this agency provides a caring, trustworthy, friendly and understanding environment. Additionally, the app is very easy to use where you can update your calendar based on your availability, receive job offers but also apply to roles which you may be interested in.

Opogo has been such a lovely agency and the best out of all I've signed up with. The consultants are so lovely and answer any and all your questions regardless of its nature. They were amazing during my onboarding as Mehreen was always available to answer my queries very quickly through phone call and through the app. Ash and Raj were very helpful in setting me up with my first supply role and sent me to a great school which I thoroughly enjoyed. Being a recent graduate with not a lot of work experience the team always kept this in mind and always made sure I was comfortable and even checked up on how I was getting on! Couldn't have asked for a better agency and I'm so excited to continue working with them as they also offer fantastic pay rates! :)

Opogo have been completely amazing. I have had no teaching experience and wanted to get some experience as a TA during the Covid pandemic whilst being out of the acting world/industry. I signed up thinking I'd get nowhere because every school wants someone with experience. But Ashley, Raj and Nichole were so brilliant in finding an appropriate school for me and representing me to the headteacher of the school I'm at now - they got me an interview for the job and I got it! That's just within 1 week of signing up!! They are incredibly supportive and like a little family. The Rate of Pay is fantastic and the school I'm at is wonderful. I've already been recommending them to my friends who are with other agencies that pay less and where they don't feel valued. You absolutely feel valued at Opogo and they call and check in on you after your first day and week and I know they're there if I ever need anything. Thanks so much Ashley, Raj and Nichole - couldn't have done this without you!

My experience at this agency has been amazing. I have dealt with Ashley and Raj, who have both been so helpful, friendly and professional. Both have been in contact to update me at every stage of the process to ensure that I knew what was going on. Within 2 weeks of signing up with the agency, I have secured long term supply work from September. I also love the app which keeps you informed of the progress with your application, lets you search for jobs and shows you your accepted jobs. Would definitely recommend this agency to anyone looking to find work in schools.

In October I applied to various teaching agencies in order to gain some experience working in schools. However, most did not even call back. I found out about Opogo via a friend and contacted them the next day. Within a week I was enlisted as a cover supervisor for the agency and was working in schools a couple of weeks later. I was shocked at how fast and easy the whole process of joining the agency was. Not to mention, the Opogo app is great and really easy to use. Also, they have a great support network who are on hand at all times in order to answer any questions or issues you may have. Natalie and Ashley have always been available whenever I had question or needed general help and contacted me every so often to check up on me. Overall, my time at Opogo has been fantastic and I would highly recommend the agency to anyone wanting to work in schools both for the short term or long term.

Such a lovely agency.the staff are lovely and approachable, the app is super easy to use and you still get lovely phone calls from your consultants to make sure everything is going well and have friendly chat. They offer both daily and long term supply options and the vast majority of schools that you visit are inclusive, friendly, helpful and professional. A great agency to go with.

This is the first agency I have worked for and I couldn't be happier. I have been working with Opogo for a few months now as a teaching assistant and my experience with them has been nothing short of fantastic. Ashley and Kim have been a joy to work with, are generous with their time and support, and have secured me bookings at fantastic schools. The app is great for providing availability and also for alerting you to opportunities you might be interested in. Highly recommended!

I am overwhelmed to share my experience with OPOGO. With teaching experience from my native country, I was having less hopes to get a job in the UK. OPOGO made my dream come true by providing the TA role in Primary and Secondary Schools. I enjoy working with children and each day fetches me lost of new learning and experiences. Always Thankful to OPOGO and my Recruitment Consultant Ashley Azad for constantly helping and supporting me in all my appointments. Thanks again!

So far Opogo has been a very nice and flexible agency to work with. They are not only very professional and polite, but they also try to keep you as busy as possible. I have had the pleasure and luck to be dealing with Lauren Clifton (as she is my consultant), a very recommendable person to work with, since she has always been very professional and understanding with me.
