I like the fact that we get to liaise with the same person when seeking cover / info etc. Joshua has been extremely efficient, polite and helpful.

The Leeds team at Supply Desk have been incredibly helpful during my time working in schools in the UK. I was lucky enough to come over with my brother and a friend, who both went through the agency as well. They walked us through all the nitty-gritty paperwork pre-departure, picked us up from the airport upon arrival, transported us to our initial accommodation, and even advised us where we could get a good meal. They allowed me the time I needed to settle in, such as setting myself up with a bank account, and finding permanent accommodation before organising interviews for potential job opportunities at various schools. The team were very thorough and helpful in finding me suitable work that utilised my experience while being very considerate of finding suitable schools close by, in order to lessen my travel time to and from work.
I would recommend this company to anyone who is considering teaching over in the UK, especially in Leeds. The incentives and flexibility in work arrangements that the company offer will suit anyone’s circumstances, whether you would like to work full-time and build bank, or go the casual supply route and travel around the UK & Europe.

After dealing with other agencies for some time with no results, I was incredibly happy with the service provided by Supply Desk. The staff listened to my specific needs and took them into consideration in finding me a position. I have never hesitated to discuss any questions I have with Jo or any of the staff members, as they are all very kind and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others.
As I have a psychology degree, Supply Desk placed me in a special school, and I have thoroughly enjoyed working there. Working at the school has been very rewarding and I am gaining a wealth of experience that I believe will help me in my future career as a psychologist.
I have worked with Neil at Supply Desk for over 2 years and previously for 6 years. I have found Supply Desk always to be very knowledgeable in sorting cover within our school. They always respond within a matter of minutes even if it’s after hours. The quality of their staff is always excellent and I would highly recommend them as a company. Thank you for all your hard work!

Clare Hooton and her team at Supply Desk Sheffield were a tremendous help in transitioning to the UK from Australia. I first worked as a supply teacher in 2010, and within a couple weeks they had found me a year long maternity cover position in English. On my return to teaching in the UK in 2016 I was provided with supply work each day and within a week I received a semester long block in Geography. The GPS contract provided me with peace of mind, and at each step of the way I found Supply Desk highly professional and extremely helpful.
