"I would highly recommend GSL Education as a recruitment agency. Over the past 7 months they have placed me in two schools; one I'm currently at as a long-term supply teacher and my September 2017 start, permanent teaching position.
Both jobs I am thoroughly happy to have had and have the opportunity to teach at such wonderful schools. GSL managed to find positions that suited my personal requirements for a teaching role - neither have been a case of ticking a box but instead, GSL listened to exactly what I was looking for and promptly found schools that lined up with what I wanted and set up interviews for me.
Having come over to the UK from NZ, I was completely new to the whole process except for some NZ-based teaching experience. GSL were immensely helpful with this part of the process, swiftly ensuring I sent away appropriate documentation to ensure that I had met UK teaching prerequisites. At no stage was this process daunting as I had my own personal consultant assigned to me (Oluseun Thomas), who was on the other end of the phone, email or Whatsapp message to answer any questions I had (there were many!).
This support continues to this day - any queries I did not want to broach with my school were taken care of by my consultant. For example, my pay negotiations. This can be a very uncomfortable situation in any new job, let alone one which you may not know the going rates for in a new country. GSL managed to get me a salary that I was more than happy with, in a school I love.
Ultimately, I wouldn't recommend any other London-based agency even though I had been signed up with a few others. They are second to none and their team are the main reason for that; they are 200% there for you, whatever you need help with. I cannot rate them highly enough."
