"Ampersand is a recruitment consultancy that really cares. I hesitate to call this organisation an 'agency' because they simply aren't like others in their field. There is such a personable feel - Dan and his staff really go out of their way to help you in your career. They do this by listening and trying to cater to your needs to find you the placement that's right for you. Great experience, thank you Ampersand!"

“After being left in an unfortunate position a job, the looming panic of where to find a new position in a new city became increasingly overwhelming. I was recommended to go through Ampersand Education where I was warmly welcomed by the team who immediately put me at ease. This was my first time using an agency so I did not know what to expect or how long the process would take. Within 24 hours I had personally met my consultant, had all relevant paperwork completed and an interview at a school. I was fortunate to have been taken on by the school and I am incredibly happy there. Communication has been fantastic throughout and they are hugely adaptable and attentive to your needs. I have no doubt that if my current role was to come to an end I would comfortably be in a new position in no time!”
Nicole, Primary Teaching Assistant, West London
“I would like to thank Ampersand Education for the work they put into finding me a teaching job that suited me.
I am very impressed at the way they kept me informed and their valuable advice. The staff at Ampersand are friendly and very professional. A special mention to Nurani, who has been really supportive and professional, and Daniel, the director, who always finds time to phone you to check how you are doing from first hand. I would warmly recommend Ampersand to anybody who is looking for a reliable and trustworthy teaching agency. Many thanks again for your support!

"I have found my consultant to be a diligent, professional and caring recruitment consultant. Having returned from teaching abroad for three years I was uncertain as to what kind of role I wanted in the U.K. My consultant went through all the options and was always very patient with me even when I changed my mind about what role and year I wished to work in. I have worked with other supply agencies who take a less personal touch and just seem to want to put you in any role without thinking if it is suitable."
Paul, Primary Teacher, West London
I had and still have a very nice experience with Ampersand. Starting from the initial interview where I was able to say what I was looking for and my long term goals. I was quickly given supply work as well as interviews. I really appreciate the support Ampersand has given me for each supply work making sure schools had planning ready for me as well as sending me ressources and information to prepare well for each interview. They are also efficient and quick in answering any questions or worries we may have on the phone or by email. They have found me a very good placement negotiating terms and conditions on my behalf. It corresponds exactly to what I was looking for and gives me opportunities for career development. I greatly recommend teachers to try the Ampersand experience!

"Dear Nurani, no one calls or writes back with such detailed feedback! I am so touched!
I know you must be very successful at what you do because you really do seem to care about the candidates you are trying to place!"
Shabina - Teacher, South West London
"Ampersand were able to find me suitable employment within a very short period of time. The interview process was humane and I never felt uncomfortable or undervalued which is something I had experienced interacting with other agencies. Ampersand's follow-up throughout the entire process was marvellous as communication lines were always open. I did not feel as though I was ONE of their clients but instead I felt as though I was their ONLY client. My needs were always heard and I was only presented with offers that conformed to my specifications. I must say that Ampersand Education delivered stellar service and I would definitely recommend to everyone who is interested tailored appointments whether short or long term. Keep up the great work Ampersand - You guys are awesome!"
Tricia - Teacher, South West London
"Nurani has been absolutely amazing, I can't thank her enough. She really listened to what I wanted and the school I am at now is perfect for me. Her help with lesson planning prior to my interview was brilliant."
