Best Education Recruitment Company 2021

Hear what some of our successful candidates have to say..

 If I could give more stars I would! Honestly Amethyst Education is an agency that go above and beyond. Ashley really helped me with all my worries and concerns. When I got an interview Ashley went out of his way to make sure I prepared for both my lesson and interview. He helped me outside his working hours and helped me book both my hotel and train tickets. I 100% recommend this agency not only for helping me secure a position for September but their kind service and their genuine care about helping me secure the job.


Fantastic! Wonderful! Outstanding! Many words to describe this agency. Very supportive and with you from day one. Continued support with the interview process and will constantly look to match you to a PERFECT school based on your vision and philosophy of education. No complaints at all. Lisa (and Ashley) have been outstanding in helping me secure my first position for September. Highly recommend. Out of this world!
