About Us

Academics is a UK based education recruitment consultancy, providing quality staffing services to schools both in the UK, and overseas.  Established in 2002, with offices in Australia, and across the UK, we have now placed over ten thousand teachers and support staff in to long term, short term and permanent assignments.

Our business has always been based on building long term relationships with our candidates, having a clear understanding of your needs, and working closely with you to provide you with the best possible solution.

We have been working with teachers from Australia and New Zealand for over a decade.  We understand the challenges involved in moving to a different country, and teaching in a different education system.

Unlike some agencies, we don’t just match based on subject skills or discipline, or experience of a particular year group.  We pay just as much attention to matching your personality, circumstances, strengths and weaknesses to the right school, to ensure your move is successful.

When you teach with Academics in the UK, you can be assured of the following;

  • Friendly and responsive service – 365 days a year
  • Knowledgeable, supportive and experienced consultants
  • Schools with experience in supporting overseas trained teachers
  • A huge selection of teaching jobs across the UK
  • Guaranteed pay schemes or long term contracts
  • Minimum 4 week notice period
  • Highly competitive pay rates
  • A wide ranging benefits package
  • Tax efficient payment and expenses options
