Meet the London and the Home Counties Support Teacher Recruitment Team

The London and the Home Counties support teacher jobs team has been established for eight years. Essentially the recruitment consultants place Teaching Assistants, on a long term basis, across London and the Home Counties. The team have been able to establish an excellent client base, as a result of placing high quality candidates into these schools and jobs. We currently operate with eight consultants and are expecting significant growth throughout the next academic year.

Allan Taylor Allan Taylor

Allan manages the support teacher jobs team, and has been with Academics since 2006. Originally a teacher, he has been in Education Recruitment for 15 years. Outside work Allan enjoys spending time with his children (Ben 10 and Daniel 7), and also with his partner Lucy and her two children (Liam 14 and Amy 10). Allan is ‘sports mad’ and his particular passions are Football and Golf. He is an avid West Ham fan who looks forward to them winning something at some point in his adult life! Allan also enjoys film, theatre and a few pints of a lager now and again.

Amy Raven Amy Raven

Amy has been in recruitment for nearly seven years. At her last company she started off as a Resourcer but was soon promoted into a consultant role. She placed school support staff in schools on a daily and long term basis. She has been with Academics since January 2012. Amy has been a very successful consultant and this was recognised in her promotion to a Principal Consultant role in July 2014. Outside work Amy enjoys socialising and spending time with her family.

Angelo joined Academics in January of 2013.

Unsurprisingly, Angelo is a self proclaimed movie buff with a passion for music and a good book. He enjoys testing Allan’s unparalleled knowledge of dates, captivating his colleagues with completely original, very interesting stories, and bowling.
