our why

A little about why we do what we do

The anzuk Story

At anzuk, we place exceptional people in educational settings, but we know it doesn’t end there. We place the right teacher, in the right classroom every time. Why? Because we know that when one exceptional educator is in a classroom, 30 children get a great educational experience that day. And when we place two teachers, then 60 kids do, and when three educators are in classrooms, then 90 children have had a great day of uninterrupted lessons.

Now, imagine how many children are impacted by 100 great educators, or 1000…

Operating between Australia, the UK and LA, we are excited that anzuk educators are reaching classrooms around the world and making a global impact.

Every day, every way, always.

Our Values

People are our entire reason for being. They make our service what it is and allow us to constantly improve the education sector.

Living our shared values allows us to create value for others, driving us to BE GREAT in all that we do:
Belief Exceptional
Growth Relationships Empower Attitude Team

Our reputation for developing open and meaningful relationships is always first and foremost. That's how we're able to provide exceptional career opportunities for educators and a valuable service for our partner organisations.

The anzuk Story

anzuk was founded in 2004 by our current CEO Daniel Mundy and Managing Director Ben Goldsmith, initially sourcing teachers from Australia and New Zealand to work in the UK.

Daniel and Ben identified the need for quality teachers to always be present and available in the classroom. For students to achieve desired outcomes, they believe every day counts.

With this goal in mind, anzuk soon expanded to develop local networks, transforming the education recruitment industry one region at a time. We continue to lead the way in education recruitment services, including early childhood and executive specialties.
