Being a part of Vibe Teacher Recruitment has been a life changing experience for me. From the minute I phoned up to inquire, I was welcomed with open arms and it only got better from there. I made a majority of my London based friends through the Vibe community by attending inductions, parties, events and through the schools I worked at. The teams that looked after me made sure I always went to the best schools and was prepared for success! Although I'm not currently working for Vibe, I will always be a Viber and recommend this fantastic agency in a heartbeat!

Joining Vibe has made my London experience. A company full of teachers who have been in your position before allows for understanding most of us need, moving over to a new country or just finding our feet when teaching in London. All the consultants have taught and still teach in the schools they work shows as they have been honest and able to prep me about specific classes and schools before my days. They found me exactly what I wanted and I am now working full time in a great school in central London which a great community of Vibers… and continue to be apart of the Vibe family with regularly catch ups at the office and fun events! Couldn’t thank Vibe enough for your support and hard work, I will couldnt recommend them enough!

A friendly, helpful & genuine service!!! I worked with Vibe for 2 terms doing daily supply before taking on a full-time role. Vibe were very supportive in helping me find the right school and later helped me get sponsored. If you looking for a honest, down to earth, no nonsense agency - vibe are for you!!!

As with a lot of teachers coming over from Australia, I had no idea what to expect in terms of how supply worked, what schools were like, what pay was like etc. Luckily, after some initial hard times I was recommended Vibe by a friend and from then on my whole perspective of teaching in London was changed for the better. The teacher induction that they ran was not only extremely informative but was a great way for people new to London to network with people in similar situations and with similar interests. From then on I was a part of the Green Team and was extremely well looked after by Simon and Tristan who actually listened to what I wanted, got me to schools very close to home and gave me feedback on my days constantly which I found beneficial, especially when teaching in my first few primary days. If you're looking for an agency who actually know where you're coming from (they're all teachers) then look no further than Vibe.

When I first got to London I registered with Vibe and they were great! They really listened to what I was after and helped me get out into some fantastic schools. They were very honest about travel times, expected behaviours and gave excellent info about the schools!! The social side of the agency is fantastic. I met a lot of teachers who were starting out their careers in London which was fantastic. Highly recommend them.

Absolutely terrible agency!. Probably the worst I have come across since moving here. I spoke with their manager and told him that I wanted £140 a day for supply and he changed the subject by saying "yeah we'll get to that later" and proceeded to ask me about my hobbies and interests back home. When we finally did get to the topic of pay he told that they wouldn't be able to pay me anywhere near £140 a day and offered £120 through PAYE, to be paid monthly!, and £135 a day if I joined an umbrella company. When I queried him about the reason for this, he gave me some vague response about how they have fees. Why couldn't he just get to the point and tell me what they could and couldn't pay me instead of pretending to be my friend. I also thought that they are extremely unprofessional, it is really ironic that an agency called 'Vibe' has such a strange cultish like atmosphere full of fake people in its office. I thought the whole layout of the office was really weird, and the way the consultants dressed was a bit too casual for my liking, the whole place to me seemed to resemble a University common room and not a professional teaching agency. It was for these two reasons that I decided to not work with Vibe.

I was recommended Vibe by a friend and I'm so glad they did! As an agency welcomed me from the outset like I was a member of their family and it's been the same ever since. They have great schools but offer a lot of variety and options to suit anyone's taste. Possibly the most important aspect of Vibe is that they try to help match you to the right school and any feedback you have about your experience is taken on board for your next assignment. This ensures you have the opportunity to go back to schools you really like (and can make an even more positive impression). There are too many individuals to name but I've been really appreciative of the consistent friendliness and support offered, from the manager Ross, to the teams that look after you day to day when you join Vibe - they're first class! If you're moving overseas and are looking for teaching work - do yourself a favour and give them a go. You won't be disappointed. And you might even make a few mates in the process!

What a fantastic agency! I joined Vibe as I was fustrated with other agencies - and I'm really glad I did! Vibe really offers something different; they really listen to what you want and go out of their way to meet your needs. I have worked with a few agencies now, and I always felt pressured to accept work that wasn't suitable - but Vibe have never tried to do this to me. Also, the amount of work and rate of pay are both very good.

Fantastic team of people! I always felt supported and they really make an effort to make things easier for you. They definitely didn't need to provide all the social aspects that they did (i.e. events, drinks, etc) but they were always great and a wonderful way to relax and meet new people. I can't imagine working with anyone else while teaching in London. They're great!

I've always had a great relationship with Vibe having been referred to them by a teacher I met in Dubai. I've worked with them on and off for over 4 years and have always had work on the days I was available. The staff are super friendly and the parties they throw are a great way to meet fellow teachers who might also be new to London. Thanks Vibe

Vibe is a great community and professional work place. Always friendly, always helpful, always looking to make life and work in London enjoyable and practical. Karlee and Taryn (on the red team) were fantastic consultants and always bright and happy in the morning. Always answered their phones or called back. Ben (recruitment) was fantastic when we were first looking at agencies in Australia and made the whole process smooth and easy, which meant we could start working as soon as we arrived in London (in fact before we had even found a flat to live in). Travel was never over an hour without fair warning and schools were always well prepared for supply teachers. Thanks for the awesome work experience in London Vibe!! THANKS FOR PUTTING OUT THE VIBE!

What a fabulous agency to work for. The moment I contacted them about registering with them, they were informative, prompt and friendly. Once I arrived in London I felt like I was with friends and family. They invited me into the office and shared stories and a lot of laughs. All the staff that I deal with are extremely helpful. I selected guarantee supply and they got me work everyday suiting my needs and personality. The schools varied which allowed me to gain heaps of experience and try teaching different grade levels. The staff would check back with me to see if I enjoyed the school etc, and what they could do to make the experience more worth while. There was so much work available. I usually got phoned in advance and they told me how to get there with email and text. I was supported the whole way throughout the placement. Vibe is a very friendly and welcoming place. The people that work there are living away from home and have taught in school that they send you out too so they know what you are going through and how to have a successful day in the schools. Would I recommend Vibe most definitely!!

Vibe is a fantastic agency that not only worked to settle me into London schools but also provided opportunities to get to meet other like-minded people! I can not recommend Vibe enough for the support they continually provide even once you have been placed in a full-time position. I love that the people working in the office are all teachers or teaching assistants themselves so can 100% relate to all aspects of working in the UK education system. If you're looking for an agency that provides genuine support (and A LOT OF FUN!!) look no further than VIBE!!

What a great agency. I recently came over from Australia and registered with Vibe. The process was really easy and I was working at a great school within days. The best part was the fact they also have lots of social events which was great to meet new people, especially since I am travelling alone. Couldn't recommend these guys anymore.

If you're an Aussie and not registered with Vibe then you're mad. By far the best teaching recruitment agency in London. Best communication, best schools, best advice, best group of staff. They'll find you a school you like. Pay you big bucks and ensure you remain satisfied. Only ever a call or text away. Plus the best social events in the business. Dress ups, free drinks, and a great bunch of people. No brainer for me. Vibe life

Very disappointing experience with this agency. When I registered with Vibe, I was not informed that they required time sheets to be filled in by the school at the end of each day. As a result, I did two days of work for them at the end of Sept 2015 and I'm still waiting to be paid (Nov. 9th 2015). Since the end of September, I had almost twice-weekly contacted the agency to chase payment. Each time, I was advised 'yeah, I've e-mailed the school but I'm waiting to hear back from them'. This afternoon, I rang the agency to be told the same as above. So, I asked for the school's contact number - they gave me the wrong one. I then looked up the school's number myself, rang the office - phone call lasted less than 3 minutes. I was advised that they just needed to check their signing in book for the two dates and they would confirm with the agency. Neither school nor agency could tell me how many phone calls the agency made to the school requesting same. When I rang the agency back, they first said they had rang the school and got confirmation. No. I rang the school. They responded promptly to my request! During this phone call the manager insisted that time sheets are my responsibility - yes, of course - had I been told at registration! Eventually, the manager blind transferred me to an employee in accounts who had no knowledge of the above so I had to explain myself all over again. Then I was transferred back to a booking agent I've not dealt with before, who was laughing and had no knowledge of my situation. At this point, the manager refused to apologise and said he would have to find out exactly who registered me. Next phone call - their excuse was the agent who carried out my registration does not normally do this, hence 'he may have overlooked' telling me about time sheets. It took me just one phone call to sort this out. Very poor communication and treatment. I will not be working for them again and I would strongly advise others not to either.
