It’s my pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for SEN Recruitment as I’ve known and worked for them since last year.

I have to comment on their professionalism of keeping clear communication, reliability and compassion, where they understood my personal need of a long term adjustment in a school setting and the possibility to get a permanent role. All my needs are taken cared of and is a privilege to work with Alison and the SEN Recruitment team.

I strongly recommend your company because of their unique skills, seriousness and the ability to find you a long term/permanent role in a lovely school setting, where they make sure that your needs are also a priority and you feel comfortable working.

I had the opportunity to meet great people, to enjoy beautiful activities, gain more work experience in a lovely ambient and to enjoy doing all at the same time, thing that the agency cares about for you.

I feel nothing but grateful in the way I was handled and not only that I love my job but I feel confident that whatever changes the future might bring Alison and the team will manage to find me the perfect fit.

Thank you for your kindness, care and professionalism
