  • Australian teachers in Leeds UKI am currently employed medium to long term as a supply teacher just outside of Leeds, working for Supply Desk.

    Before leaving Australia to come to England for work, I was told I was going to be working as a supply teacher in and around Leeds, working on a fairly day-to-day basis. However, about a week prior to my move, I got a call from Neil saying that he’d been able to sell me on a longer term placement in a local primary school.

    Working less as a supply teacher, and more as a permanent classroom teacher has definitely been beneficial for me as a teacher, as I’ve been able to see the ins and outs of an English school and classroom, and it’s allowed me to gain more of a routine from day-to-day.

    On top of finding me a job longer term, Neil, along with Ben – also from Supply Desk – met me with a cheery smile, upon my arrival at Manchester airport. The boys drove me back to a hotel, and spoke to me about how things may look over the next week, as I look to get myself settled into work. Over the next few days, Neil assisted me in obtaining a UK phone number, and has been very accommodating in helping me get my bank account sorted out, which hasn’t been as easy a task as we may have hoped.

    I am constantly getting texts and phone calls from both Neil and Ben, checking on how things are going at my school, ensuring that everything is running smoothly, and above all, that my safety and best interests are paramount above all else.

    I would highly recommend the service that has been provided to me by anyone looking for supply work. Neil and the team at Supply Desk in Leeds have been incredibly helpful and happy the whole way through the process.

  • I have been working with Chris at Supply Desk since March of this year. In this time Chris has supported our school and met our needs as and when I have requested teachers. Some requests have been extremely difficult but Supply Desk have come up with the goods for me each time.

    Being a Catholic secondary school we do like to see Catholic candidates but they are few and far between at the moment. In the short weeks I have worked alongside Chris he has found me 3 Catholic teachers! This is a partnership I am looking forward to increasing and developing.

  • Jess is a teacher in Bucks, UKWorking with Nav (in the Bucks office) was incredible not just because he got me a job (!), but because of the value he places on his relationships with the people he works with. Not only did he take the time to get to know me, but it was instantly apparent that he has an in-depth knowledge of the schools in his area. When Nav told me about a vacancy I wasn't just left to the school's website and Ofsted reports to find information out. He told me the things you can't get from a website - what the Head was like, how the school is regarded in the community, and his knowledge of their philosophy after years of working with them. When you're trying to find a job from the other side of the world, this kind of first-hand insight is priceless. I worked with several agencies when I was job hunting but can honestly say Nav was the one to place me because he was the BEST.

    Ryan Timmerman Australian Teacher in Leeds“Moving country and basically starting a new life was always going to be daunting and nerve racking. Although when you have an incredible amount of support with planning and processing stages, it takes that stress away.

    The team at Teach In in Australia (Jenna and Gemma) were phenomenal in keeping in contact and ensuring my mates and I were up to date with all the forms . They were always happy to answer all questions (no matter what time of day it was).

    Before we left we had been contacted via phone and email by our UK consultant (Neil Waddington). Although the time difference was sometimes difficult to manage, again Neil was open to any questions and happy to help in any way possible. Neil kept in contact with us on how the job hunting was going and ensured there was going to be plenty of work.
    Two mates and I landed in Leeds on Thursday the 12th of January 2017. Neil greeted us at Manchester airport and drove us to our apartment in Leeds. He made us feel welcome with a night out on the town on Friday night and on the following Monday had two Job interviews each for us lined up. It was that Tuesday that I accepted a full time supply position at an “Outstanding school”.

    Without the help and assurance from all the staff at Teach In / Supply Desk and Neil as our on the ground consultant, there is no way that my house mates and I would have been able to land on the ground running as smoothly as we did.”
