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.

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.

From the first time I spoke with Raj at Teach In she immediately struck me as a genuine person. After only a couple of days contact, Raj has gotten me a contract with a school that fits me very well. Raj is an excellent listener and no question is too big or small, she is always there to help.
I would honestly recommend Raj to anyone looking for a job, she takes her role very seriously and will not stop until she finds you a job.
