How we support our schools

A strong team is essential to the success, effectiveness and reputation of a school. From an influential and progressive leader through to talented and nurturing teachers our approach is to find you the professionals who will add value to your school.

Our Teachers and Leaders are selected for their commitment and passion for education, and value the importance of inspiring, motivating and challenging every student to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners.

Recruitment can be costly for schools, the important aftercare we provide minimises the risk of candidates withdrawing, and because we match effectively, our staff retention rate is excellent. Our communication continues long after acceptance, so candidates are given reassurance and support during their transition to you.

School Feedback

"As the Head of Primary of an International School in the UAE, Amanda was recommended to me by a fellow colleague and over the past two years, she has provided an expectational service in the recruitment of quality teachers/leaders for the school.

In this time, I have found Amanda to be highly efficient, organized and professional. Having taken the time to meet with me, to get to know our school and its needs, Amanda has been able to recommend ‘just the right candidate’. She is honest, positive and provides a very personalized service; from my experience, this is not always provided by others in the recruitment industry.

As a candidate myself, I have seen first-hand Amanda’s effectiveness to know her clients and candidates exceptionally well. Throughout the process, Amanda was very supportive, efficient and provided clear, concise communication between myself and the prospective school. Once again, this commitment to providing a personalized service was clearly evident"

Catherine Readman, Primary School Principal, Dubai

"It is a pleasure to work with Amanda Maxwell. She knows our school well and is always extremely responsive in connecting us with suitable teachers. The greatest strength of Amanda’s service is that she focuses on quality. She makes sure she knows each candidate well and will only promote those teachers who will be a strong fit for leading international schools. We have a number of excellent teachers in our school that Amanda has introduced us to and we are very happy to continue working with her in the future."

Patrick Horne, Principal at British International School Abu Dhabi

"I can’t recommend Amanda highly enough, she is professional, very experienced and works with integrity. She clearly cares about and knows the teachers on her books. Equally she knows my school and what we are looking for and therefore hasn’t wasted my time with inappropriate candidates - she has sent me a good selection of quality teachers who are interested in working for DCSZ"

Stuart Bridge, Principal, China

"I am pleased to be able to recommend ITS based on the very positive experience we have had in working with them through our recruitment cycle. I have always found ITS to be professional and have been particularly impressed by the quality of candidate profiling, based on our context and need. It is because of this seemingly very thorough approach to both candidate profiling and understanding our context and need that we have been able to secure some of our best teacher candidates this year. I would add that communication with ITS has always been timely, responsive and supportive."

Andrew Macdonald Brown, Director at Dulwich International High School, Zhuhai China

"Amanda really personalizes the recruitment process. She understands the school and the calibre of candidate that we require. Her in-depth notes give you a real flavour of the individual that you are about to meet, ensuring that teachers understand expectations and are matched perfectly to our school.

She is the only recruiter that we use, as she offers such a tailor-made process that is professional, spot on and reactive. Could not recommend her more highly.

Victory Heights Primary has worked in collaboration with Amanda for four years and she has aided our school to recruit top quality passionate individuals who have stayed with us for invaluable service. It’s not just about commission it’s about the passion of connection."

Sasha Crabb, Principal at Victory Heights Primary School, Dubai

"Amanda has been exceptionally intuitive when suggesting candidates who have been an excellent fit for our school. I recommend her services unreservedly. She will not disappoint."
