2) A Personal Service.

As a smaller company, TIC Recruitment can offer in depth and more personal advice. Did you know that we regularly visit the International Schools we work with?

This means we can guarantee we can offer teachers and leaders positions in the highest quality schools across the world.

3) Our help doesn’t end once you start your job.

We regularly check up on and keep in contact with the teachers we help place.

We love hearing how they are getting on! We caught up with David Atkinson two years after he started his first international teaching job at St George’s School in Luxembourg.

4) Our advice is built on 25 years of experience working in or with international schools; as teachers, headteachers and recruiters.

Our company was set up by ex-international school educators to help teachers and leaders find great positions in international schools.

Some of our team have even worked overseas as teachers themselves and have first-hand experience of international school teaching.
