Thames have secured me long term contracts for the last 18 months which is what I was looking for after 6 months of day to day and short term supply in London. They have tried to find me high quality schools (currently at an OFSTED Outstanding school) and don't try to make you do things you don't want to do. If I wasn't comfortable or didn't like a school, I would be allowed to leave (which some agencies get mad about or try to pressure you). Very supportive staff, always answer phones and emails. They pay through the umbrella company 'generate'. Timesheets are completed via an app, not on paper.

Thames Teachers was always friendly and supportive and their rate of pay was pretty good. They found me plenty of work and settled me in to a fairly regular stint at a local school. It was a pleasure doing business with them! Hannah was my regular agent and she did a brilliant job of finding me work and checking that things were going well. I really recommend this agency.

My experience with Thames was excellent for the whole duration of our collaboration. Unlike many agencies, they were able to offer me work straight away in a great school. My main point of contact, Natalie, was truly an amazing guide and supported me tirelessly throughout my time with Thames. Overall, I can confidently say that the whole team at Thames is super communicative and helpful, and I advise anyone looking for work in education to sign up ASAP.

Best agency I have come across!! They are so attentive, caring, friendly and genuine. Everyone has your best interests at heart and do what they can to support you and make you feel acknowledged; even if they are not working directly with you. Kim has really helped me with any questions I have had from when I was in Australia to being in the UK. She is always prompt, dedicated, efficient and makes it a priority to find you work and welcome you to the agency. I have so much respect for Thames Teachers and I feel lucky to be apart of the Thames/Opogo family. Also, the Opogo app is awesome!! So easy and convenient to accept jobs, plan your journey and give your availability. Thanks guys :)

I would definitely recommend Thames Teachers to anyone looking to do supply. I've worked for a few agencies in the past, and Thames Teachers far surpasses them all in my experience. Communication is a great strength. Every member of the team I have had dealings with has been really personable and friendly. They call regularly to check up on how my days have been in school, and keep me well informed about potential work coming up. I almost always have work pre-booked, which is great as I far prefer that to the early-morning-get-ups-with-uncertainty-about-whether-you'll-get-a-call thing! Most of all, Thames Teachers really listen to their teachers in terms of what kind of work you are looking for, they never put any pressure on for you to go to a school or teach a subject that you'd rather not, and they're really understanding abut last minute changes of availability. The sign up process was smoother and quicker than other agencies I've worked with, and the Opogo App is a great way of keeping track of your work calendar. Many thanks Thames Teachers!

Thames Teachers is definitely by far one of the best agency to do supply with. I have now been a member for less than 3 months and I've had regular work since I've joined the agency. Hannah is a pleasure to talk to every day and she is genuinely a lovely person who is always incredibly honest and professional. The staff are very supportive and do genuinely listen to the type of work you are looking for. Kim is another member of staff who is also incredibly friendly and supportive too. They have a bank of schools that they have worked with over a longer period of time which means you know you will be placed in friendly schools where the agency know the SLT staff well. Would highly recommend joining up with this agency.

Thames teachers is an amazing agency. I spent days and months worrying about how to move forward on my future plans with no solutions, until the day I found their contacts. As soon as I contacted them, in three days time, I had a first meeting with Daniel who carefully spotted all of my interests related to Education. After a week, I was contacted again by Natalie, who after looking at my details, had several options ready. Needless to say, I started to have hope again. Through the process, I was also followed by Lauren who managed to place me in the right school in two weeks, not only for the role of Learning Assistant, but by connecting the right dots between my profile and my personality. I am so grateful to Lauren for all of her amazing work, for her time and for knowing exactly where was the right place for me. This agency is formed by incredible professionals, able to spot the exact job for the candidate and to support them in every aspect of the process. I highly recommend them to you, you will be surprised!

London is full of good agencies but the great ones are a bit like gold dust. In my opinion and personal experience Thames Teachers definitely falls within the latter. This is my second year working with them and both placements they found for me have been what I had asked for. Last year Hannah and this year Natalie have both looked after me and have been there when I needed them. Albeit different in style, they are both friendly and professional. So, would I recommend all the agencies I worked with? Maybe. Would I recommend Thames Teachers? Absolutely!

Great agency! Every single member of staff I have been in touch with has been friendly, communicative and has given me the impression to care about their teachers (I work as one) as people rather than just as workers. Hannah, my consultant, has been lovely in going the extra mile to send me to extremely nice schools and meet my needs. Work has been regular, pay above average if compared to most other agencies operating in London and they even offer to cover umbrella costs! They are my sole agency as of now, and I would definitely recommend them!

Thames Teachers - one of the best agencies I have ever come across in London. My consultant, Hannah, made the whole registration process so uncomplicated that I didn’t even notice I became a Thames Teachers teacher. Hannah and Kim are professional, approachable, honest and reliable. I received bookings almost immediately from the very beginning of the new school year in September. I adore all the schools they sent me to. I highly recommend this agency to anyone who is looking for a supportive and caring agency.

Thank you very much again and again!
