About Supply Desk

Supply Desk have been operating since 2002 when we launched the first agency management recruitment services within education, for school groups in the UK. This was delivered in partnership with the London Borough of Harrow in 2002. The service was ground-breaking for the time and within the first 2 years, savings of over £1 million were made across the authority, and teacher retention rates improved by 70%. We’re proud of our history as innovators in Education and our vision to be recognised as such is reflected in the many ways we try to help schools find the right staff. We now have over 14 years of experience and our focus today is still on a fair price and a ‘never-compromise’ attitude to quality. To help schools raise standards we know we need to find the best talent and then create the right match.  We do this by getting to know each individual school, their staff, their pupils and culture before recommending the right candidate.

I just want to say, that my experience with Supply Desk has been AWESOME!!!!! I was dealing with the branch manager for the Thames Valley branch, Meghan, who has been ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!!! She has been super quick in her communication and extremely helpful. She even kindly offered to drop me off at the station, when I went to the office to meet her. Thanks so much Meghan!! MASSIVE APPRECIATION!!!!!

Supply Desk in Canterbury was recommended to me by a headteacher aquaintance. After 20 years overseas I am returning to UK teaching. So, I was looking for an agency that would help me get set up quickly. My first contact Maggie was very professional, friendly and really listened to my needs while offering great advice. Maggie worked fast to secure general daily supply and longer term placements. I also worked with Hannah, Ryan and Drew who executed their responsibilities perfectly and are simply nice people which is a real bonus. I am very happy to be working for Supply Desk. Many thanks to all the team !

Quite simply amazing :) Maggie and Katharine have always looked after me well. Whilst working for them I have completed both day to day supply and longer blocks. When I first approached Supply Desk they listened carefully to my requirements and have always matched me well to assignments both long term and short term. I feel that they work with me and faciliate great opportunities to network and extend my knowledge and skills at a pace that suits me. They have been supportive and encouraging allowing me to chose, change and adapt the type of work that I do when I need to. I have recommended them to others and will continue to do so. Quite simply they whole team offer a professional and personalised service. Well done Katharine, Maggie, Hannah, Ryan, Drew and Tracey.

I have been very pleased with my experience of working with the staff at the Brighton branch. They are always friendly and helpful. They have always found work for me when available, and have never asked me to take work that is not suitable. This past year Mia in particular has looked after me wonderfully.

I have worked for the branch in Southampton for the past year. I have found them to be committed to finding me day to day work and often contacting me with regards to long term posts too. The staff are always friendly and happy to have a chat. I would recommend them to any professional in Education.

Can’t fault Supply Desk in Canterbury. They get me the amount of work I want, where I need it to be and when it is convenient for me. Really friendly staff, even at 0700 ! What else can I say? To coin the cliche ‘It does what it says on the tin’. Great company/great staff!

I have been working as a supply teacher with your London Branch since early 2018. I am registered with three agencies and, in my experience, Supply Desk is the best one I work with. I cannot praise them highly enough !

The team at Canterbury have done everything they can since I first signed up to ensure my working holiday in the UK has been a rewarding and enjoyable service. Very dedicated to finding long-term contracts and the short time that I had to do day to day supply I was given a lovely school to work at. Thanks for making my stay in the UK a great one!
