To continue supporting Australian and New Zealand schools we are moving our services fully onto Tes. Our same great team of recruitment specialists will be here to help you, just under a new name. With Tes we can help connect you with the world’s largest community of educators across Australia and globally.

I have never worked with a company or recruiter that gives me such quality candidates. My consultant knows what I am looking for in a candidate, almost better than I do, and is able to find and deliver candidates that have the right qualifications, ethos and values that are right for my school. So much of putting together my team for SEN is about having people that are able to adapt, work as a team and using their own initiative to support pupils and Lisa delivers candidates who are able to execute the role and fit incredibly well with the team dynamics which is invaluable. Compared to other agencies the safeguarding systems are  simply miles ahead and absolutely beyond reproach. Communication is clear and on a simple level working with Smart Teachers saves me a significant amount of time and effort whilst giving me the obvious benefit of having a better team for my school and inevitably our pupils.

I just wanted to drop you a quick letter to say how impressed I have been with Smart Teachers this year and in particular the attention we have received from Darrel Hayes. Having received a generic email on our school email about your agency, I made contact with Darrel before Christmas looking for a teacher for January 2018 and he made sure that he matched our school with an outstanding teacher, Anna Blinkhorne. Anna has shown complete commitment to the school and the class. If this is the calibre of teacher you have then we most certainly will be using Smart again if the needs arise. As for Darrel, he has checked in with us regularly to see that things are going well with Anna or if we have any other requirements. He has visited the school and he responds immediately to emails and phone messages. Darrel has a professional but friendly and approachable manner and it has been a real pleasure getting to know him and Smart Teachers.

I 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!

My relationship with Smart Teachers is outstanding. They are always very quick on follow up and communication. Smart Teachers have always provided excellent communication, quality customer service and a good range of candidates for positions.

Smart is a great agency and will go above and beyond to help you find the staff you need. Everyone here has been impressed with not only the quality of the teachers we have been able to recruit, but also the professionalism with which we are consistently treated. They always let us know if there is even a minor issue we need to be aware of and deal with any problems efficiently. I would also comment that their fees, in comparison to some other agencies, are considerably lower!

Smart Teachers have proven themselves to be an exemplary recruitment service, providing a personalised service that delivers high quality teaching staff to match the needs of our school. In recent years we have come to depend on Smart to source daily supply cover, long term placements as well as permanent appointments. Their reliability and level of service has outshone their competitors.

Mayespark Primary School

We have been using Smart Teachers for many years as our preferred supply agency both for day-to-day and long term supply; only resorting to using other agencies in extreme cases. We have found them to be reliable, efficient, and importantly, always attuned to the unique requirements of each individual placement.
