Our Expertise in Education Recruitment

Our Mission

Our mission is to match school staffing needs with the best available candidates and to work together with teachers, teaching assistants and schools with the objective of raising standards.

Our Vision

We want Supply Desk to be recognised as a highly innovative education-staffing solutions supplier and to be ranked as No 1 in the UK amongst supply agencies for customer service.

Our Core Values

Our staff have worked together extensively to agree how their personal values align with our Company Core Values. These values have come from our staff and we are committed to ensuring that they are front and centre when we’re dealing with each other, our clients and our candidates.

We are:

  • Honest and trustworthy
  • Collaborative, respectful and committed to teamwork
  • Creative, innovative and dynamic
  • Positive, motivated and fun-loving
  • Productive and always learning

Our History

We 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.

Why are we different to other education recruitment agencies?

We have an internal milestone to be the number 1 education recruitment agency for customer service in the UK. Which means we’re not here for the short term. We’re building long term relationships.
