My journey with Time For Change Recruitment started when I became dissatisfied with the school that I was teaching at.....

My journey with Time For Change Recruitment started when I became dissatisfied with the school that I was teaching at. The agency that recruited me from Jamaica was a bit lacklustre when I raised issues I was having with commuting to the school as well as with remuneration (I was being paid an M4 salary with a Masters degree and over 10 years teaching experience). I emailed the agency literally taking a shot in the dark.

Within the hour I got a reply from Bridget at TFC and communication was seamless since.  She was very adept with the recruitment and placement process. She’s also very supportive and easy to talk to. As a teacher herself for many years in British schools, Bridget is Knowledgeable of the nuances of the teaching experience and also very empathetic. There is absolutely nothing that you will say to her that takes her by surprise and because of this, she’s always on her teacher’s side; always sticking her neck out for her teachers. Bridget and her staff negotiate very competitive salaries and very good working conditions for her teachers.

They never allow you to get anything less than you deserve.  These are but a few ways in which TFC was very instrumental in helping me secure a position:

  • TFC made contact with schools and organize interviews in an expeditious manner.
  • Once interviewed they were very quick to communicate decisions and follow up procedures
  • Documents commensurate with the recruitment process were communicated to me very quickly
  • It took TFC less than a month to secure a position for me.

After I started at the school, Bridget’s support was constant and sustained. She communicated with me constantly to ensure that I was comfortably settling in the school.

Importantly, TFC was very integral in ensuring that I was paid the correct salary and that I followed the correct procedures to obtain redeemable taxes.

To date, the line of communication between myself and the TFC staff is still very clear and open. They remain very helpful, understanding and easy to talk to. I would recommend Time For Change Recruitment to any of my cohorts or anyone who happens to be remotely interested in teaching in England. You are guaranteed a smooth ride with them.
