Since joining Thames teacher I have been very impressed with their service. Deon and his team have gone out of their way to find me opportunities that suit my specific personal and teaching needs. They are always willing to offer advice, provide feedback and will discuss teaching options that benefit the teacher and their career above just getting you in a school-in other words, you’re not just a number to them! I would highly recommend Thames teachers to anyone! Plus the highest rate of pay is an added bonus!
Georgia(Secondary SEN Teacher from Melbourne, Australia)
Jenna and the team at Thames Teachers continue to provide an excellent service. Juggling two jobs I have never been short of work when I have wanted daily supply teaching, and am being paid a good daily rate compared to other agencies in London.
The quality of the schools I have worked in tend to be rated ‘Good’ or above, and I haven’t had one negative experience in the last year.
I really appreciate the work that the consultants put in, and the communication channels are fantastic. Definitely worth looking at if you’re after short or longer term teaching vacancies across London!

Thames Teachers got me supply teaching a day after my interview with them! 2 days later I got a year-long job that has now led to an amazing permanent position! Jenna, Deon, Amy, and Leanne are all really friendly, accommodating, and understanding. Highly recommend them!
