I am writing in regards to the new job opportunity I have been offered through Smart Teachers. First of all I want to thank you and express my gratitude towards your team’s efforts but mainly [my consultant] Sadia. I remember joining the company with a heavy heart, unknown of what to expect or whether I’d get a stable position. You have been the most amazing  consultant and conversations with you have always been comforting and reassuring. My experience at Smart teachers has been pleasant as you have kept me in the loop and maintained a level of professionalism throughout. You considered my views and took that on board all my requirements when searching for a role well suited for me. Thank you for understanding me and finding me a job that will allow me opportunities to flourish as a practitioner. 

Nabilah Kamaly – London, UK

Just wanted to send you a massive thank you on behalf of the team here at Tresham! We had a very successful half term week, and I would like to say that we were not disappointed with any members of staff you sent to us. All of them were exceptionally patient and understanding and it made our week so much easier. All staff worked incredibly hard, with ourselves and the young people, and we were so impressed with the standards of their work. Thanks also to your team at the office, who were incredibly helpful in our times of need!

Michael Rideout – Children and Young People’s Team Leader, The Westminster Society

I have nothing but praise for Smart Teachers. My consultant has been extremely professional, friendly and efficient . He has completely understood the needs of our school and matched candidates accordingly. We have been able to appoint a teacher who will fit well into our school and ensure the quality of teaching and learning will remain high during the maternity cover. Many thanks for going the extra mile to support us. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Smart or in using them to help us recruit staff again!

Linda Paley, Headteacher – Castel Primary School

I wanted say a massive thank you to you for all your help in securing my new job. After a term working at the school I know that taking this role was definitely the right choice. It’s a lovely school; both the students are staff are fantastic and I love coming to work again. I will definitely recommend Smart to any teachers I know looking for work in London.

Sheree – Australian teacher placed in London

Thanks so much for everything Marguerite [London office] and Sarah [Sydney office]. I owe the Smart family a lot! Having recently returned to Australia, I think my experience teaching at Eaton House in the UK is what won me my new role here in Sydney – I’m pretty sure the principal had decided she wanted me before she even met me!

Michelle – Australian teacher repatriated from London to Sydney

Using Smart Teachers was one of the best and most helpful decisions I made when I approached the move from Australia to the UK. Their consultants are full of knowledge and have made the process a smooth and easy one. I am extremely grateful for the hard work and passion they have shown when trying to place me. I am thrilled with the position I have been offered and can’t wait to work with the school.

Thomas Pyle – Secondary Teacher

Smart work to build a true understanding of the culture of the school, as well as the business needs. This means that we are provided with high calibre applicants and supply staff that closely suit our requirements. The staff we have gone on to employ from Smart have become valued members of our school community.  Smart Teachers have always been professional, honest and reliable and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

Devonshire House School – UK

My relationship with the Smart team in Sydney is amicable, professional, consistent, efficient, open, and transparent. I would recommend Smart Teachers to any other school. They are responsive to specific requests and are regularly in communication. Thank you for your support.

Deputy Principal, Independent School in Sydney’s Hills District

Thank you for everything you have done for me in a very short time frame. I’m so happy with all the help you’ve given me! You may currently be on the other side of the world but you are very present and accessible. I can honestly say that Smart Teachers have done far more for me than every other recruitment agency combined.

Alice Walker – Australian teacher relocating to the UK

The service that I received from Smart Teachers was outstanding. My UK consultant was in constant contact, kept me continuously updated, and made the entire process really easy. Having spoken to other recruitment agencies, the level of service and dedication I got from Smart Teachers was miles ahead.
