Using Supply Desk has enabled us to bring some excellent Australian teachers into our school and their ethos completely fits our vision. They have High Expectations for the children it terms of their behaviour and work. They are Caring and develop relationships with the children quickly so that they are trusted. They have Positive Attitudes and bring that sense of energy and fun to the classroom and school. Finally, they are Successful getting great work and pride from the children they work with.
I would wholly recommend employing teachers from a different country as they bring a fresh outlook and energy to your staff team.

Working 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.

Your team have developed fantastic customer relations with myself and our cover department and understand the needs of the school. One of the most reassuring aspects is the sense that your team actively problem solve, it is such a help on stressful dark mornings! Huge thanks to Charmian, Darren and Fiona, you really are a godsend and with a sense of humour too! I regularly recommend Supply Desk to good quality people looking for a supply agency to work for, because I am very confident you will look after those you represent to a high standard too.
Leigh Ann Ellam, Chepstow School
The level of customer service I receive from Nav is exceptional. I cannot fault it or recommend any way in which it can be improved. Nav works hard to always find and provide work whenever I want it - long term or daily supply. He is organised and asks in advance days when I can work and will try to book me in asap. Nav is easy to contact and flexible and understanding to my other commitments.
Supply Desk have a wide choice of schools and Nav tries to place me in schools I like or will be most suited to. If possible, Nav will place according to subject specialism. Nav is always cheerful, motivated and extremely helpful - a real credit to Supply Desk!
