Meet the Australia Team

The International Team are based in our office in Melbourne, Australia, and work alongside our UK based consultants to find suitably qualified and experienced teachers who are looking to relocate to the UK to take up a new teaching job. Manager Michael has first hand experience in teaching in the UK, so they are ideally placed to assist teachers with any questions they may have about relocation in general, visa requirements, passport issues, and any other questions you may have. The team is also heavily involved in assisting a number of client schools in the Far East and Middle East with their own long term and permanent teacher recruitment.

Michael is a qualified teacher, and before becoming a consultant, was actually registered with Academics as a teacher, and taught in schools throughout South East London.
