Testimonials

 

“A big thank you to all of the staff at Pink  for all the paperwork and information you have sent through for the interview and the lesson preparation: you are the first agency to send such a substantial amount of information and it is extremely helpful.”

 – Merian, English teacher

“Pink Recruitment is an agency with a difference. They provide a service which is unique in my experience. Having been in education for many years I have dealt with many other agencies and while they serve a function, they are also instantly forgettable. Pink very actively seek employment for you, but you are never under pressure to take work which you do not feel is suitable for you. You are treated as an individual and they make the effort to know you and genuinely try to find a job that works for you, including going the extra mile.

All of the staff are very friendly but professional and respond to enquiries quickly and efficiently and they update you regularly with the current state of play. I have always found them encouraging and supportive during the job seeking process and many friends and colleagues of mine have also been with Pink and been very happy with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend Pink Recruitment to anyone in search of a new employment opportunity and thank you to Karla for all of her help.

 – Rachel, English & Media teacher, Essex

“I have had the pleasure of working with Karla on a number of occasions and she has always been the consummate professional at all times. I would wholeheartedly recommend her.”

 – Lindsey, Belfairs School Essex

“Pink Recruitment are without question the most professional teaching agency operating in the sector. From day one they were professional and helpful to me.

It is very rare to find a group of people who go beyond the pale for candidates. In Pink you have that. My own needs were attended to and nothing was too much trouble. Unlike others they are not in the business of filling posts, rather they have built their name on individually matching people with positions best suited to the individual.

You are never just dropped into a geographical location and left to sink or swim. From finding your way to an airport to looking for accommodation, Pink are the market leaders bar none. Collectively and individually they far outstrip in terms of performance any rivals in the sector.

They have substance over style. Professionalism over the hard sell. I am delighted to recommend them to anyone be they teachers or schools. They have made the move so easy for me and my family and you cannot ask for anymore than that.”

 – Derek

“At the beginning of the year I had a negative experience with my teacher training and then with my first agency. Even though I had many other agencies calling me, I just didn’t feel they understood my situation. However when Vicky called me she was very friendly, down to earth and enthusiastic. Vicky took the time to listen to me about my past experiences. The very next day she had organised an interview for me, I was amazed. I had a few interviews which Vicky and the Pink Recruitment team always gave me information about the schools, travel details and interview tips. However Vicky didn’t stop looking for the right one for me.

Finally a position came up in an Essex school for a week’s supply. By the time that position had ended Vicky had organised a position for long term supply at another Essex school. This was great for me even though it was an hour’s drive from London. I settled in well and just before the half term break the school offered me a permanent position to start after half term plus training to start in September. All the staff at Pink Recruitment are an amazing and efficient group of very professional and passionate ladies. They are friendly, realistic, honest and hard working. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for their constant support and hard work. I will remain in contact with the team and defiantly recommend Pink Recruitment to any teacher looking for a teaching position in the UK.”

 – Mulvina Wallace

“I had a very positive experience with Pink Recruitment, with excellent support given, advice and most importantly I was placed in an excellent school. That is why I chose to return to Pink Recruitment and have again received continuous support, help and advice. I have been supported from Karla who couldn’t have been more supportive, personable and kind throughout making my decision to return to the UK. I am confident when and if I need help I am 100 percent supported by the girls at Pink. I would definitely recommend anyone making the move to the UK from Ireland for a smooth transition.”

 – Jane, Teacher of Science from Dublin

Julie is extremely efficient and takes trouble to understand exactly what is required by her clients. This attention to detail means that any candidate recommendations she makes can be taken forward with confidence

 – Linda, Futures Community College

“After spending months sending out CV upon CV to almost every school in Ireland and being met with complete silence I was more than a little fed up. I was considering moving to the UK but didn’t know where to begin when I stumbled across Pink Recruitment on Facebook. I sent a quick email asking for advice and Maeve got straight back to me with lots information and infectious enthusiasm! I was immediately given a boost and I felt really positive about my future. After that things were a bit of a whirlwind from video interview to starting in my new school within the blink of an eye! Maeve and her team were incredible from the start, helping me organise my flights and accommodation. The team at Pink Recruitment still check in with me all the time, just to make sure I’m happy and they are always there for advice or just a chat! I couldn’t recommend Pink Recruitment more!”

 – Christine, UCD Science graduate

 

“I would 100% recommend any qualified teacher out there struggling to secure work to contact Pink Recruitment. It is a very frustrating process trying to secure a teaching post in Ireland and just as my patience was running out Pink Recruitment came to the rescue! After months of applying for posts and hearing nothing within one week of contacting Pink Recruitment I had secured a permanent teaching post. Each staff member I spoke with was so friendly, helpful and sympathetic to my situation that I immediately I felt at ease.”

 – Sheily, Hibernia College Science Graduate

“My experience with Pink Recruitment has been smooth and problem-free. The transition from Ireland to the U.K. was seamless and the helpful team assisted me with a lot of bureaucratic issues and provided relevant solutions and guidance when I required”

 – Tom, Trinity College Dublin Business & French graduate

 

“My journey in securing a teaching post in the UK has been anything but conventional, it was quite a rollercoaster. I can honestly say that if I had not signed with Pink Recruitment I would have given up. From initial contact until now the staff have been incredibly professional, but friendly. They are beside you every step of the way providing much needed motivation, support & guidance. Your needs and considerations are really taken into account to ensure you secure a position in the right school for you. Pink Recruitment are galaxies ahead of any other agency I have dealt with”

 – Zoey, NUIM Science graduate

 

“From the moment I contacted Maeve to inquire about my options I was made feel so at ease, she didn’t mind answering all my little questions, worries or doubts and I never felt pressurized to commit to anything. The friendliness of the staff is something that strikes me most and it is this quality that makes them stand-out from the other agencies I had contacted.

After initial contact securing a teaching post in Kent happened quite quickly for me. Making the move over to the UK was definitely made easier with the knowledge that I could contact Pink for support or advice at any time. Any issues I encountered at the beginning were quickly resolved with their help. The emphasis has always been that their number one priority is to ensure that I am happy above all else. My experience with Pink has been only positive and I would recommend all Irish teachers seeking posts in the UK to contact Pink”

 – Alice, LSAD Art Teacher graduate

“I’ve been teaching in a lovely school in Essex the past 4 months, loving most of it and do feel very happy that Pink Recruitment managed to swing this for me. I hand to heart have no memory of signing up with Pink but I got a call out of the blue one day from Maeve who was, as you know if you’ve dealt with her, very friendly and understanding at my hesitance to commit to moving over. Doing my profile was a good bit of fun and following this, I got a call from England offering me the interview and was offered the job on the day. I then went to see the school before making any commitments.

I have to say that Pink Recruitment were very supportive all the way through and made every effort to keep me informed of what was happening and helping me find a place to stay. Maeve in particular was very good and is still ringing me to see how I’m getting on which even I, with my limited knowledge of teaching agencies, know is quite unusual. So thanks to everyone at Pink Recruitment who helped me take my first real steps on my career path!”

 – Mark C, UCD English & History Graduate

“Working with Pink Recruitment was extremely satisfying. I found the consultants particularly helpful in accommodating all my needs. Pink tries to find the best school suitable for you. They assist with accommodation and put you in touch with other teachers in the area, which helps make the move to the UK easier. The consultants are very helpful during the interview process. They help you with lesson planning and interview questions. With regards the interview, they fly you over, pick you up from the airport and drop you directly to the school, which makes you feel more relaxed. The consultants are always available for support at any time of the day which shows their huge commitment and dedication. I found them extremely easy to talk to, extremely friendly and also great craic. I would without a doubt recommend Pink Recruitment for anyone looking for a teaching position in the UK”

 – Paula, University of Limerick, English & Music Graduate

“My experience with Pink Recruitment has been excellent, and I would recommend them to anybody looking for teaching work in the UK. Pink differ massively from any of the other agencies I have been in touch with, as it is clear that you are their priority, they really want to find the right school for you and most importantly, they put absolutely no pressure on you! From my first phone call to Maeve I was made to feel at ease, with all of my many questions answered, she was even on the phone to me the night before an interview at about 9.00pm answering my questions and prepping me for my interview.

Having secured work within only a few weeks of getting in touch with Pink, my initial nerves about moving were put aside, with the team at Pink going above and beyond to answer my questions. Maeve and everyone at Pink have been amazing, they have kept in constant contact and regularly check in just to see how things are and if they can help in anyway. I can honestly not say enough good things about Pink Recruitment, they are honest, realistic, helpful and most importantly excellent at their jobs”

 – Sarah, National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Geography Graduate

“Pink is a truly first-rate teaching agency. I spent a great deal of time looking for an agency that felt right for me and I never quite found it until I discovered Pink. They are focused on finding their teachers schools that are right for them and they are fully aware that every teacher is looking for something different so they always do their best to tailor their efforts to fit the individual teacher.

Since I have been with Pink I have not been in contact with any other agencies such is my trust in their commitment to me. They are always in contact with whoever they work with before, during and after placements to see how things are going and to offer guidance and a helping hand in any manner they can. The staff are friendly and genuine people and I always look forward to talking to them. In closing Pink is agency for teachers established by teachers. They know what it is like trying to make your way in the world of teaching abroad and they do their absolute best to pave that way for everybody they work with. Like I said, A truly first rate teaching agency”

 – David, UCD, Geog Graduate

 

“My experience of Pink Education has been a very positive one so far. Maeve, in particular, has been very supportive and honest with me throughout the process. She was really interested in my concerns and keen to find me the perfect job in a school and area that would suit me. After securing me an interview the staff at Pink Recruitment made sure I was well prepared and when I was offered the job they arranged for me to go to see the school and meet the staff and students before accepting the position. The whole process was very quick, having attained a job within a month of contacting Pink Recruitment.

Although I was mostly in contact with Maeve, I also dealt with Julie and found everyone to be incredibly friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Pink Recruitment to any Irish teachers considering moving to the UK. Their highly professional and equally personal approach makes them the best agency out there”

 – Roisin, University of Limerick Music Graduate

 “Moving to the UK to teach was not my first option. I was worried about finding the right school that would suit me and felt somewhat daunted by the whole process. I had contacted a couple of other agencies first and didn’t feel comfortable with them. However, Pink Recruitment, and especially Maeve, listened to everything I wanted. They didn’t just shove any job offer in my face but waited until there was something that suited all of my needs.

I was guided through every step in the process of securing a job from application to interview to moving to England. Honestly, I could not have asked for better support and guidance. All of my questions were answered and help was always there for me if I needed it. Even now, having settled into teaching in England, they continue to support me with any query I have. Without doubt, it is their exceptional friendliness and support that would make me recommend them to any teaching graduate.”

 – James Duffin, NUI Galway History Graduate

 

“Last October I contacted Pink Recruitment in the hope of speaking to somebody regarding a future teaching career in the UK. Within one week, I had an interview in a school in the south-east of England and within two weeks I was in full-time employment. I can honestly say the support I received from Pink was second to none. Maeve (Manager Pink Recruitment Ireland) was literally on hand to answer my every whim, (it was a big decision for me so I had a lot of whims!!!) There was absolutely no difference in the friendly and honest support I received be it weekdays or weekends.”

“After 4 months I have settled in well over here however Pink are still in regular contact to ensure not only my working environment but also my quality of life is at a good standard. Pink surpassed my every expectation in so far as they went above and beyond with regard to the support network they extended to me.”

 – Liz, DCU Maths Graduate

“As a 2013 graduate I failed to find employment in Ireland. After spending months job seeking I failed to find any substantial position. I decided to contact Pink Recruitment and found them to be extremely helpful. After a number of weeks I was completing a job interview for a technology teacher in Essex. Pink Recruitment provided me with great support which resulted in me getting the job. I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment to any teacher seeking employment in the UK.”

 – Noel  DT Teacher, University of Limerick,

“When I first signed up to Pink Recruitment I was apprehensive about moving to the UK. However after speaking to the Pink team the encouragement and support offered to me, made the move a simple and easy choice for me. Pink set me up with a great teaching opportunity in an outstanding school, and remain in close contact with me to ensure I am having no difficulties. I cannot speak highly enough of Maeve and the Pink team as without their help I would never have made the move. Contacting Pink Recruitment was the best decision I made to forward my career.”

 – Rob, DT Graduate, University of Limerick

 

“Pink were an absolute dream to work with, within two weeks of my initial contact with Maeve in the Irish office I had been for two interviews in Essex and was offered both positions. They catered for the type of school I wanted and the two I interviewed for were wonderful schools which matched what I wanted perfectly! The gang at Pink were nothing but supportive from the get go and the support they offer is brilliant with interview preparation and even induction. I cannot speak highly enough of them. A great team and thanks again!”

 – Nick NUIG Maths Graduate

“Pink Recruitment is a fantastic company that deals with you as individual. They make the time to get to know their teachers and what they want from school. Using this knowledge they source amazing schools that suit the needs and wants of that teacher. I have had an outstanding experience with Pink Recruitment and would not hesitate to recommend it to all my friends. Why? The people who work for and with Pink Recruitment are so genuine and friendly and this really helps to put you at ease. Unlike other companies Pink Recruitment have a personal touch where you develop a relationship with the people you work with.

As an NQT they gave me a lot of support and advise which helped me grow in confidence and plan lessons for my upcoming interviews. All staff members were a delight to work with and were their to comfort or provide assistance at the drop of a hat. I genuinely cannot wait to work with Pink Recruitment on future endeavors and will remain in contact with them throughout my career”

 – Shonagh -NUIG

 

“I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Pink Recruitment. They coached and advised me through every step of the process of getting an interview and subsequently a job in a great school in Essex. I know many teachers who have made the move to teach in England but none of the other recruitment companies seems to have provided them with the same level of support and counsel. Pink always make an effort to keep in touch with their candidates even after they have secured positions, as well as making every effort to network Irish teachers who are moving to the same area so that their move can be a new and successful social venture as well as a professional one. Always friendly, helpful and professional I have and will continue to recommend Pink Recruitment to friends and colleagues.”

 – Brid–Hibernia Graduate

 

“I cannot recommend Pink Recruitment enough – the staff are so kind and helpful, and found top schools in the area I was interested in (Kent). When travelling to England, we were picked up at the airport by Julie, who brought us to her place for a cuppa before dropping us right to the door of the school. Maeve was there for every step of the process, down to ringing the night before to go over the lesson plan for the class I was teaching. No other agency offers the same level of personal care and attention as the wonderful staff at Pink Recruitment.”

 – Ann, UCC English Graduate

 

“I would gladly recommend Pink Recruitment to any Irish teacher looking to work in the UK. Maeve in the Irish office and all the UK staff were extremely helpful and always available to answer any questions. They were very understanding of how daunting the move can be, and were very supportive, checking in regularly to make sure that all was going well. Thanks for helping me to find a fantastic school!”

 – Claire, Mary I graduate

“My experience with Pink Recruitment recruitment has been wonderful. From the very beginning they provided the utmost professional and helpful service they possibly could. They made it their mission and worked very hard to find me a suitable teaching position catered to my personal requirements and even arranged things such as accommodation, travel and other documentation required. Within just days of first speaking with Pink Recruitment they had found me a temporary position and accommodation on arrival to the UK. They would contact me many times a day via email or phone providing me with valuable information and answering any questions I may have had. They ensured I was updated daily on possible job positions and scheduled interviews.

At present I am based in Essex and working as a supply teacher until some more permanent positions that suit me become available, and still contact is very regular and I know I can rely on both their Irish and UK representatives to help me when I need it. Pink Recruitment has not only set me up professionally but they have also put me in contact with other teachers in my area because they understand that moving country and starting out in a new location can often be daunting to begin. I am very happy that I chose Pink Recruitment over all the other possible agencies and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking to pursue teaching jobs in the UK.”

 – Nicola, Graduate UCD

“I contacted Pink Recruitment in May of 2014 and I am extremely happy that I did. Maeve was both informative and supportive from the word go. Within days I had an interview with an outstanding school in south-east London, and thanks to all her great help beforehand I was offered the job. Since starting in England, Maeve has kept in contact and been on-hand to offer advice. I couldn’t recommend Pink Recruitment more to anyone; a professional service with a smile”

 – Stephen, TCD graduate

“Last June I contacted Pink Recruitment with a view to pursuing a future teaching career in the UK. Within a week of completing the initial online profile Pink had shortlisted potential schools which they felt would suit me. With the help of Pink I secured a permanent position in a school in the south east of England and after 2 months I have settled in very well over here. Pink are still in regular contact to ensure everything is going well and have been very helpful in the process of me relocating to the UK. For anyone considering making the move to the UK I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment, as they have surpassed my every expectation in so far as they went above and beyond in regard to the support network they extended to me”

 – Brian, PDE Graduate NUI Galway

“Deciding to make the move to the UK was daunting and scary at first. However I am so happy that I enlisted the help of Pink Recruitment who made the move so easy and they were so supportive from the outset to the present day. I contacted Pink in September they were really open and understanding and asked me what I wanted from a school. This ensured that I would not be thrown into a school that I would struggle in. Within two months I had an interview in the perfect school for me. Pink helped me hugely with interview questions and I felt very prepared and confident going over for the interview. I was so excited when I got the job and I know without the help of Pink I would still be stuck in Dublin hoping to get some hours subbing. The support did not stop when I got the job, Pink helped me with every aspect of moving country such as accommodation, bank accounts, national insurance numbers and more. I know that if I have any questions that I will not hesitate to contact them and get advice and having that support system is invaluable. I cannot recommend Pink Recruitment enough, they have helped me with my confidence and showed me that there are so amazing many opportunities out there for Irish teachers.”

 – Eilish S, UCD Graduate

“October last year I was contacted by Pink as I had left my details with them at the Education Fair in UL. Pink were very understanding of my circumstances and were aware that I wasn’t looking for a post at that moment but would be the following summer. True to their word they got back to me and from talking with Maeve I have seen how professional they are and I can honestly say from where I was to where I am now it has been literally stress free. They only contacted me when a job matching my requirement’s came up and sent me information. If I didn’t like what I saw there was no pressure saying no. When a post came that I was interested in they sent my information and then next day I had an interview confirmed. A short flight, airport pick up, quick lesson and interview I had a job. I had my summer off and since starting I have enjoyed every bit of it. Making friends has been easy and finding accommodation was also with the help of Pink. I am now on a permanent contract which was very important to me as I wanted my holiday pay, Pink being the only agency I saw that offered this was a big plus. Every so often Maeve gets in contact to make sure I am having no issues for a friendly chat about school life and I can honestly say the process from being at home to getting here has been stress free. Thanks Pink Recruitment”

“After my initial contact with Maeve, I came away feeling really positive and excited about my job prospects in the UK. I got the feeling that Maeve was genuinely interested in getting to know me and what type of teaching position I was looking for, and ultimately committed to finding me a suitable job in the UK. True to her word Maeve, along with other members of the team, sought out a prospective school for me to work in and organised an interview. I got a great feeling form the school on the day of the interview and was successful in securing a permanent Geography teaching position there. The whole process was stress free, in fact it was the opposite, I thoroughly enjoyed being in contact with the team and discussing my options. I am very grateful for their invaluable services. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment!”

 – Jenny, UCD Geography Graduate

“The decision to leave home is never an easy one to make, especially when you’re leaving the country altogether but Pink made this tough journey alot easier to take. Maeve is the shining star of Pink and goes beyond her role in Pink to become more than just a name in an email. She’s a true star and a friend and made my journey from Ireland to Essex much more bearable. The team in the uk are great and made me feel at ease with my interviews, ultimately securing me a position in a school suited for my needs. If you’re looking for an agency that will view you as a person rather than another number, Pink is the agency for you.”

I was supported throughout the whole process. Meave helped me prepare for all aspects of the interview from lesson planning to potential interview questions and Carla was there on the other side to collect me and bring to the school for interview. Pink were also there to help and assist in any way with the move to the UK. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to find a job in the UK”

 – Grainne, UCD Humanities Graduate

They really put the effort in to make sure you’re happy with the move, the area and the school. I’m delighted with my school and where I’m living.

No other agency puts as much effort into helping their teachers than Pink Recruitment”

 – Paul, UCC,  English Graduate

“Pink Recruitment are an excellent recruitment agency for Irish teachers seeking work in the UK. Personally I left it very late to look into the UK but it was no hassle for Pink, they had interviews lined up very soon after my application. Even after I had been offered the job at the bare minimum pay scale Pink negotiated a better deal on a higher pay scale. The school I got placed in has excellent facilities with a very good Ofsted report. I can’t recommend Pink enough to any Irish teacher looking for some valuable experience in the UK. They always put your best interests at heart”

 – Daragh, DT Graduate UL,

 – Joyce, HIbernia English Graduate

“I found Pink Recruitment to be an excellent choice of agency. The main reason for this is that they went to the effort of trying to place me in a school that would suit my strengths along with being in close proximity with my friends and fellow Irish teachers. I have been fortunate enough to work in a school where there are two fellow Irish teachers and it was Maeve and her team Pink Recruitment who made this happen. The most positive aspect of Pink is that they give you honesty and will do their best to help you. I would strongly recommend them to any teacher from Ireland thinking of teaching in the UK”

 – Alex, DT graduate

“Pink Recruitment were helpful from the very beginning. I was nervous about moving over to the UK and teaching a totally different curriculum. However, Pink ensured me that they would find a school that matched my personality. This, is exactly what they did. I am now teaching in a Sports college in Essex. As I am a sporty individual, teaching in this school has allowed me to be involved in extracurricular activities, which has made me a very happy teacher!
Pink put me in contact with other Irish in the area where I am living in, along with assisting me with my hunt for accommodation. They have checked in on numerous occasions to see how I was getting on or sometimes, just for a friendly chat. This friendly and helpful recruitment agency has made my move to the UK a pleasant one””

 – Claire, UCC Geography Graduate

“I moved from Ireland to the UK with great help from the Pink Recruitment team.

I would highly recommend this agency for any recent teaching graduate”

“Pink Recruitment were very helpful and very supportive with my transition from Ireland to the UK. The major difference between Pink Recruitment and other agencies is you are not “just a number”. Maeve put me in touch with a Irish teacher in the school that I am now currently working in. He told some very important information about the school which aided me in securing the role at the interview. Maeve talked me through the whole process and I never felt nervous or unsure about the move. The Pink Facebook page is a great way to get in touch with other irish teachers and makes you feel that you are not on your own”

 – Michael, DT graduate University of Limerick

“I have found that the support from the Pink Recruitment team has made my move from Ireland to the UK a relatively stress free experience. Within one day of speaking to the team, they had set me up with an interview and helped me to secure the job. I am now working in a school that I absolutely love working in, with continued support from Maeve and the rest of the Pink Recruitment group. Throughout the entire process, Maeve was a constant support who would see how the transition was going for me and how she could help in any way. She made herself available to answer any of my questions and it is because of reasons like this that I would highly recommend the Pink Recruitment group. I had moved to England before, and was dreading the daunting process of the move again but it couldn’t have been any more different this time with the help of Maeve and the team. If you’re looking to teach in the UK, this is definitely a team I would recommend you work with!”

 – Megan McG, Mater Dei Institute of Education Graduate

“I joined Pink Recruitment last August on the off-chance of going to the UK for teaching work. A day later, I had an interview set up and was offered the job on the spot. Maeve from Pink has been there offering her invaluable support and advice since that first phone call and unlike other agencies, they seem to really care about their staff. Without Maeve, finding work would have been a much more tiring process! Over the first term, Pink were just a phone call away and they always made time to ask how we were, especially during those hectic first few weeks”

 – Karen, UCD graduate

“Pink Recruitment were instrumental in not only setting up interviews with schools, but also giving me advice and support throughout the process and supplying me with important information about moving to the UK. Maeve was very helpful and personally guided me through the interview stage, getting set up with the payment company and starting in the school. I would recommend Pink Recruitment to anyone interested in teaching in the UK.”

 – Matthew UL Science Graduate

“Pink Recruitment group won me over at the information workshop. The process of applying to the UK was made very clear and what steps I needed to take. Maeve was so kind and helpful during the interview process which eased the nervous bubbles. Even after the transition from Ireland to London, Maeve has kept a line of communication open and has pointed me in the right direction when I had queries. Pink has a Facebook page to get in touch with Irish teachers in the UK as an extra special touch. I highly recommend this agency as they get to know you and seek out a school that is the best match.”

 – Audrey, Mary Immaculate graduate

“Pink Recruitment were very helpful. I moved from Ireland to the UK in January contacted Maeve on the Monday she had an interview set up for Wednesday and I was working on Thursday in a lovely school. The thing I like about Pink is that you not just a number Maeve spoke to me for about a hour on the phone to find out what type of school I was interested in and found me a lovely one close to where I live. I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment for any teaching graduate.”

 – Erin, UCC University

“Pink Recruitment were so helpful in securing me a teaching position in the UK. I originally got in touch with Maeve through Facebook just to find out some information about how the agency work. I told her my concerns about moving to the UK as I had been out of teaching for a couple of years. Maeve was so helpful and matched me with a school that was perfect for me. Pink Recruitment talk you through the whole process and are with you every step of the way. I would highly recommend the agency if you are thinking of relocating or, like me, looking to go back into teaching.”

 – Leah, Mater Dei Institute graduate

“With Pink Recruitment you know they want you to be happy at your school and that they will get the best deal for you. I am at my second school now through Pink and am much happier as the subjects, contract and location is just what I wanted. They will get you a school based on your goals, rather than getting you the first thing that comes along, and with travel itinerary for every interview its a breeze to get placed.”

 – Brian, University of Limerick Graduate

“Thank you, Georgia, Karla, Naomi and the rest of the team at Pink Recruitment for helping me get hired as a Teacher in a very good school that I like, you guys are very efficient, patient and kind.”

 – Douglas Teacher of Geography

“I have had an absolutely amazing experience with Pink Recruitment. From the moment I met them to the moment they set me up with an job they always had my interests as their top priority. I was surprised by how personable the company was when I first met them, and they continued to surprise me with their honesty and meticulous nature. I dealt with many recruiting companies when I was initially looking into coming across to the UK and this is the only company I recommended to my friends. They are dedicated to their teachers and work hard to serve their best interests; this is what sets them apart, and sets them above.”

 – Anthony Kuchma

 – Basildon Academy

“Pink were an absolute dream to work with, within two weeks of my initial contact with Maeve in the Irish office I had been for two interviews in Essex and was offered both positions. They catered for the type of school I wanted and the two I interviewed for were wonderful schools which matched what I wanted perfectly! The gang at Pink were nothing but supportive from the get go and the support they offer is brilliant with interview preparation and even induction. I cannot speak highly enough of them. A great team and thanks again!”

 

“I can’t speak highly enough of Pink Recruitment. Within three weeks of first contacting them I had been over to Essex, had three interviews for maths jobs and was offered two. I’m starting work in September thanks to all the folks at Pink Recruitment. This is definitely the agency to go with if you are looking for a teaching job.”

 – Brian, Limerick

“Having secured work within only a few weeks of getting in touch with Pink, my initial nerves about moving were put aside, with the team at Pink going above and beyond to answer my questions. Maeve and everyone at Pink have been amazing, they have kept in constant contact and regularly check in just to see how things are and if they can help in anyway. I can honestly not say enough good things about Pink Recruitment, they are honest, realistic, helpful and most importantly excellent at their jobs.”

 – Sarah

“I want to thank the staff of Pink Recruitment for having me to their office. I know there was business to conduct, but they gave a lot in the interview by being friendly and revealing some of their background and interests. I’m sure they’re very busy this time of year but they genuinely seemed to have time to talk and connect with me, and that inspires huge confidence in me. I look forward to working closely with them all in the future.”

 – Matthew

“Signing up with Pink Recruitment was the best decision I have made in recent years. The staff have impressed me with the highest levels of professionalism. They work proactively to ensure I always get the best possible assignments as a contractor. Their friendliness and courteous communication belies a steel resolve to give the best possible service.”

 – Edward

“When I finished my PGCE, I was looking for work once I returned from holiday. I tried a few agencies, but none were as dynamic as Pink Recruitment. They were brilliant at finding me immediate work at excellent rates. Their staff were always available for help guidance when needed, and they were very welcoming. I can’t recommend them enough.”

 – Rob 

“I would gladly recommend Pink Recruitment to any Irish teacher looking to work in the UK. Maeve in the Irish office and all the UK staff were extremely helpful and always available to answer any questions. They were very understanding of how daunting the move can be, and were very supportive, checking in regularly to make sure that all was going well. Thanks for helping me to find a fantastic school!”

“Pink Recruitment is a fantastic company that deals with you as individual. They make the time to get to know their teachers and what they want from school. Using this knowledge they source amazing schools that suit the needs and wants of that teacher. I have had an outstanding experience with Pink Recruitment and would not hesitate to recommend it to all my friends. Why? The people who work for and with Pink Recruitment are so genuine and friendly and this really helps to put you at ease. Unlike other companies Pink Recruitment have a personal touch where you develop a relationship with the people you work with. As an NQT they gave me a lot of support and advice which helped me grow in confidence and plan lessons for my upcoming interviews. All staff members were a delight to work with and were their to comfort or provide assistance at the drop of a hat. I genuinely cannot wait to work with Pink Recruitment on future endeavors and will remain in contact with them throughout my career.”

 – S. Fogarty

“When I first signed up to Pink Recruitment I was apprehensive about moving to the UK. After speaking to the Pink team and with the encouragement and support offered to me, it made the move a simple and easy choice for me. Pink set me up with a great teaching opportunity in an Outstanding school, and remain in close contact with me to ensure I am having no difficulties. I cannot speak highly enough of Maeve and the Pink team as without their help I would never have made the move. Contacting Pink Recruitment was the best decision I made to forward my career.”

 – Rob Leamy

“Last October I contacted Pink Recruitment in the hope of speaking to somebody regarding a future teaching career in the UK. Within one week, I had an interview in a school in the south-east of England and within two weeks I was in full-time employment.

I can honestly say the support I received from Pink was second to none. Maeve (Pink Manager Ireland) was literally on hand to answer my every whim, (it was a big decision for me so I had a lot of whims!!!) There was absolutely no difference in the friendly and honest support I received be it weekdays or weekends. After 4 months I have settled in well over here however Pink are still in regular contact to ensure not only my working environment but also my quality of life is at a good standard. Pink surpassed my every expectation in so far as they went above and beyond with regard to the support network they extended to me.””

 – Liz Ryan

“I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment to any teacher looking to make the move to England. The agency are very helpful with finding you a job, arranging interviews, transport, accommodation, etc. But above all they are very easy to talk to and are extremely helpful with any queries you have. I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending this recruitment agency to anyone!”

 – Liam H

“From the moment I contacted Pink Recruitment, Maeve in particular, my experience in dealing with them has been terrific. At that time, there wasn’t many jobs available as the term had started. Maeve was very honest in saying that it could take up to a few weeks to secure a position but that she would do her best to get me a permanent job. I felt very comfortable talking to Maeve and she helped me hugely when I had my first interview and answering all my silly questions. After my interview in Kent, I accepted the offer and I have nothing but positive things to say about Maeve and her crew. They don’t put any pressure on you to at all which really made them stand out from the other agencies I have dealt with. I am still in contact with Maeve since I secured this job in October and she is always checking in on how I am doing. I would highly recommend any teacher that is thinking of moving to England to get in contact with Pink Recruitment.”

 – Orla

“From the moment I contacted Maeve to inquire about my options I was made feel so at ease, she didn’t mind answering all my little questions, worries or doubts and I never felt pressurized to commit to anything. The friendliness of the staff is something that strikes me most and it is this quality that makes them stand-out from the other agencies I had contacted. After initial contact securing a teaching post in Kent happened quite quickly for me. Making the move over to the UK was definitely made easier with the knowledge that I could contact Pink for support or advice at any time.

Any issues I encountered at the beginning were quickly resolved with their help. The emphasis has always been that their number one priority is to ensure that I am happy above all else. My experience with Pink has been only positive and I would recommend all Irish teachers seeking posts in the UK to contact Pink Recruitment.”

 – Alice

“My journey in securing a teaching post in the UK has been anything but conventional, it was quite a rollercoaster. I can honestly say that if I had not signed with Pink Recruitment I would have given up. From initial contact until now the staff have been incredibly professional, but friendly. They are beside you every step of the way providing much needed motivation, support & guidance. Your needs and considerations are really taken into account to ensure you secure a position in the right school for you. Pink Recruitment are galaxies ahead of any other agency I have dealt with.”

 – Zoey Quinn

“After spending months sending out CV upon CV to almost every school in Ireland and being met with complete silence I was more than a little fed up. I was considering moving to the UK but didn’t know where to begin when I stumbled across Pink Recruitment on Facebook. I sent a quick email asking for advice and Maeve got straight back to me with lots information and infectious enthusiasm! I was immediately given a boost and I felt really positive about my future. After that things were a bit of a whirlwind from video interview to starting in my new school within the blink of an eye! Maeve and her team were incredible from the start, helping me organise my flights and accommodation. The team at Pink Recruitment still check in with me all the time, just to make sure I’m happy and they are always there for advice or just a chat! I couldn’t recommend Pink Recruitment more!”

 – Christine

“My experience with Pink Recruitment has been excellent, and I would recommend them to anybody looking for teaching work in the UK. Pink differ massively from any of the other agencies I have been in touch with, as it is clear that you are their priority, they really want to find the right school for you and most importantly, they put absolutely no pressure on you! From my first phone call to Maeve I was made to feel at ease, with all of my many questions answered, she was even on the phone to me the night before an interview at about 9.00pm answering my questions and prepping me for my interview.

Having secured work within only a few weeks of getting in touch with Pink, my initial nerves about moving were put aside, with the team at Pink going above and beyond to answer my questions. Maeve and everyone at Pink Recruitment have been amazing, they have kept in constant contact and regularly check in just to see how things are and if they can help in anyway. I can honestly not say enough good things about Pink, they are honest, realistic, helpful and most importantly excellent at their jobs.”

“As a graduate I failed to find employment in Ireland. After spending months job seeking I failed to find any substantial position. I decided to contact Pink Recruitment and found them to be extremely helpful. After a number of weeks I was completing a job interview for a technology teacher in Essex. Pink provided me with great support which resulted in me getting the job. I would highly recommend Pink Recruitment to any teacher seeking employment in the UK.”

 – Noel

 

“I am very happy that I chose Pink Recruitment over all the other possible agencies and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking to pursue teaching jobs in the UK.”
