Meet the Barnsley Team

The Barnsley office is one of Academics newer regional branches and our team work closely with nurseries and schools across the entire South Yorkshire region (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield). As a member of the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce we also work in partnership with many local businesses and organisations and have a strong commitment to supporting our local community. As an education recruitment agency we are rapidly becoming the first choice for supply cover with our local nurseries and schools which is a testament to hard work and professionalism of the Barnsley Team.

Andrew is a Barnsley lad and has been involved in Education for 10 years. He started as a supply teacher, progressed to a full time Physical Education Teacher and Lecturer, before moving into managerial roles. Andrew is now looking forward to growing the Barnsley branch and engaging the community together with his team of dedicated consultants who put schools and nurseries needs first. Andrew is a massive Liverpool fan as well as a supporter of local team Barnsley FC, and he tries to get to as many games as possible with his sons. If he ever finds any more time, Andrew also loves to play golf (well, he tries at least!!).
