Hear from others who
taught in the UK

I worked with ANZUK back home in Australia but yet again, the London office did not disappoint! I have been so pleased with not only how everyone supported my transition to the UK, but all of the work we have done together since commencing work here. I have worked with many agencies in the past and can find many too pushy and pressuring, making it very clear it is all about commission! I constantly get the opposite experience from ANZUK and will now only work with them. Feels like a real team experience.

Melissa Cunnington

I started working for ANZUK a year ago in Melbourne. I find them very supportive and friendly. I heard about their London office and how they help people to make the move! I have always wanted to travel and thought it would be a great opportunity to teach overseas! I am now in London and the ANZUK team over here is just as friendly and supportive as the one in Melbourne. The agency organised meet ups before going to London and here in London too, so I’m able to meet plenty of people and make friends who are in the same situation as myself!!

Bree Pellow

anzuk helped me move from Australia to London. The transition was very smooth. I found the staff were very informative and reliable, they always ensured that I was comfortable and aware with whatever was happening. I moved right before COVID hit they have remained supportive and engaged throughout. I would recommend anzuk to anyone looking for support in finding employment in teaching roles.

Shauna O’Halloran-Anderson

Moving to London from Australia with the assistance of anzuk has been a seamless experience. The staff at anzuk have been helpful every step of the way.

Gemma Rossetti

The early years team helped me so much when I first moved to London! I was able to receive shifts 5 days a week. ANZUK also were able to secure me with a full time job, which has been greatly appreciated!
