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 work for the Canterbury branch and have had mostly good experiences. Staff very friendly and helpful but have had periods of no work. Hannah is absolutely great and really looks after me when she gets me a booking.

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!

I made the decision to work exclusively with Supply Desk (Kent) about 3 years ago and I'm so glad I did. They have always been the best in terms of offering work, rates of pay and how they treat their teachers. I have had a wonderful experience with Supply Desk. Everyone that works there is so friendly and I have only ever had positive experiences working there. When I'm teaching and I come across other supply teachers I make sure I spread the word about Supply Desk, and praise the work they do. I feel lucky to work for such a supportive and friendly teaching agency. Special mention must also be given to Hannah Robinson who has been absolutely fantastic at finding me work and has always been really friendly and helpful. Great job guys!

Great, can't fault Canterbury Supply Desk, they have provided good quality tutoring ever since I first joined in 2015. Always friendly and helpful and adapt to your needs. Katharine gave me some very helpful contacts and advice when I first looked to return to teaching and I've never looked back! Maggie and Ryan also tip-top!

I have been working with Supply desk in Canterbury on and off for 5 years. I work with looked after children on a 1:1 basis, teaching Maths, English and Science in Childrens' homes and foster homes. I feel well supported by my designated member of staff, Ryan Williams; he is in constant contact, listening to any concerns I may have. I have been fortunate with the amount of work I have been given.

I love Supply desk as they seem to know your personality and what school would best fit you. The girls in the office will never flower things up for you and are honest about the schools they send you in too. When I've had difficulty in traffic they are totally understanding and will help you with locality of schools. They also have your back while you're in schools too. Calling in to the office is always good too as you normally have a nice little chat too. Highly recommend Supply Desk as an employer xx

I have worked with Supply Desk Canterbury over the last five years and have always found Katharine and her team to be efficient, dedicated, helpful and supportive. There has been a variety of work available to suit my requirements at any given time - long-term, short-term and individual tutoring - and I have never needed to use any other agency. I would recommend the Canterbury branch without hesitation!
