  • Bruce Peacock Elementary Teacher
    The service I received from SeekTeachers.com was superior. SeekTeachers has dedicates staff that are very knowledgeable and caring. My consultant was Ash Waheed. He without question went the extra mile for me and my family. Ash was very patient, caring and knowledgeable. He really cares about his clients and is very willing to answer to any questions I had. Ash provided me with excellent resources to make the transition easier for me and my family. We worked with a lot of recruiters during the process and Ash was the best one we worked with. Without him we would not have gotten the job we were looking for. I would highly recommend SeekTeachers and Ash Waheed to anyone looking for a job overseas. Bruce Peacock

    What can I say about an agency that not only follows delivers what they say they will do, but consistently follows up with the client throughout the process? I save Bravo! Bravo to SeekTeachers.com and Senior Consutant Ash,for making what could have been a difficult process of obtaining employment overseas to one positive, memorable journey that I will tuck away in my memory bank. Ash, is "first-class" when it comes to matching the client with the employer. He did that for me. Secondly, he responds quickly to questions and concerns throughout the process and in my case, on a few occasions, exercised great patience, when it came to questions. (smile). At the end of the day, I would recommend SeekTeachers.com to those teachers and administrators who are interested in working abroad and discovering that "No one of us knows as much as all of us together." Thank-you SeekTeachers and Ash!
     
  • Claudette Ungerer ICT/Business Studies Teacher
    My husband and I had a very bad experience with a recruitment agency, and we almost lost everything. I came across SeekTeachers website, and applied for a teaching position in Abu Dhabi. The same day Ash phoned me from the UK and arranged a meeting with the school 2 days later. I got the job and leaving SA in about a week. It an honour for me to write this letter and testify of his EXCELLENT work and quick feedback on any questions that I had. I will highly recommend him as a recruitment agent, and will never work with another recruitment agency again. Not only does he reply quickly but he helps with every and anything that you struggle with. He is always friendly and extremely good in his job. I will not hesitate to refer anyone to him due to his excellent and professional way of handling matters. I just want to thank him for his OUTSTANDING work and way of dealing with me.
     
  • James Burgoyne Experienced Art Teacher
    SeekTeachers have provided an outstanding service. From the moment I registered my consultant Ash Waheed was extremely helpfull and supportive. Unlike other teaching recruitment companies I was given a personalised service. I was not simply put on a general automated overseas job mailer. It was refreshing to be able to speak directly with Ash throughout the process. I am now working in my chosen country within my specialim and I am enjoying the experiance thanks to the work of SeekTeachers!
     
  • Barbara Rubin Elementary Teacher, Consultant, Principal
    Ash Waheed, just wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You provide a wonderful service. You are an asset to SeekTeachers. I landed the position you helped me interview for. Please feel free to use my words on your site. I was amazed at the job search results and the diligent effort you put towards my interest.

  • Faiyaz Hoosein English Teacher
    I can't express enough gratitude to Ash and SeekTeachers for all their help in securing a teaching post in Sharjah. Not only were they exceptionally helpful, organised and prompt with finalising my procedures, but also interacting with Ash was amongst the most pleasant of experiences I've come across. He has done more than help with paperwork and technicalities, he also put to ease a lot of my anxiety about my big move. Thanks buddy,you've been awesome!
     
  • Sean Kelly Geography/Humanities
    As the Irish teaching market isn’t in the best shape at the moment I decided to look further afield to begin my teaching career. From looking through all the different teaching recruitment websites they all seemed more focused on the school compared to you the teacher. When I thought I’d miss the boat and given up, I found SeekTeachers. Thinking they would be the same as everyone else I applied as normal not expecting much of a reply. From this point on I was introduced to Ash and he was fantastic in helping out with everything. From guidance on job hunting, interview techniques, answering questions, visa issues and flights he was a great recruiter. But what really makes Ash and SeekTeachers unique is that they are supportive, friendly, always contactable and have a fantastic website that is constantly being updated. For anyone thinking of the international teaching market, I have no doubt that Ash and SeekTeachers will work just as hard for you as they did for me Thanks Ash and SeekTeachers!!
     
  • Katy Finch English Teacher
    I'd just like to say a big thank you to Ash at SeekTeachers for helping me to secure my new job in Qatar. I shall be making the big move next week and I'll be saying goodbye to Korea, which has been my home on and off for the past 4 years. Although I'm a little sad to leave the land of kimchi, I can't wait for my new challenge. The staff at SeekTeachers have made the preparation for my move run really smoothly. Aswell as assisting me with great interview preparation, they have also pointed me in the right direction regarding all the documentation and legal requirements I needed to set up before my departure. So now my flight is booked, all I have left to do is pack that suitcase.
     
  • Anne Beattie English Teacher
    I would like to express my appreciation of the way in which SeekTeachers handled my application, interview and subsequent offer of a teaching post in Doha. Within 48 hours of posting my C.V. onto the SeekTeachers website, Ash Waheed contacted me for a friendly chat, ascertaining something of my background and giving me detailed information about how SeekTeachers operates and the schools which they serve. Ash also gave me preliminary information about teaching in the Middle East and how any interviews would be conducted. I was given clear instructions on how to complete my profile and also what procedures would take place afterwards. Ash arranged for an interview in London and on arrival I was put at ease and made to feel welcome and valued. After the interview, along with other interviewees, I was shown an informative power point about the Tall’um Group of schools and in general about life in Qatar. The young lady informing us was very friendly and happy to answer unlimited questions. As promised after the interview, I was informed the same evening that I had been offered a post with Tall’um Schools. SeekTeachers then guided me very clearly through achieving document attestation for Qatar; every part of the process unfolded exactly as they advised and the operation was completed very smoothly. Ash Waheed has been in contact several times by telephone to advise on various aspects of teaching in Doha, the journey and induction process, along with very helpful tips on travelling, banking, and even taking cosmetics and tea bags (very much appreciated!). Ash has constantly encouraged me to ask any questions on any aspect at any time and also illustrated in detail what SeekTeachers are establishing to assist teachers settle and enjoy teaching in Qatar, such as Facebook forums and experienced mentors for new teachers to the country, including advice on curricular as well as personal matters. In addition, Ash has asked for feedback and suggestions from new recruits on aspects of the SeekTeachers service, so that a fully comprehensive system of information is available for prospective future candidates. I consider that the service I have received from SeekTeachers is second to none administratively. However, what I have particularly been impressed with is how Ash has constantly asked for feedback in order to improve the service SeekTeachers gives to candidates. Ash clearly intends to answer every possible need and query and ensure new teachers are as well prepared and equipped as possible to teach in a Middle Eastern country. This can obviously only reap benefits for all, as happy teachers are good teachers! Thank you Ash, for your superb guidance, efficiency and humanity. Anne Marie Beattie
     
  • Nasir Ahmed Maths Teacher
    Organisations claim to be the best but SeekTeachers have truly provided a 'second to none' service by being helpful at each stage of the registering, interview and ongoing process with extremely quick response to queries demonstrating a strong knowledge and care for the candidate. I wholeheartedly recommend SeekTeachers for searching for your teaching or management posts in education. Absolutely fantastic service!
     
  • Karen Thomas Psychology/English Teacher
    I have been very pleased with my introduction and general experience of SeekTeachers, in particular, Ash Waheed. The service I received was efficient, professional and honest. Within one week of signing up to SeekTeachers, Ash had got me an interview with a school. Luckily and most importantly, I secured the job and will be teaching in Doha from Septemeber 2011. The whole experience has been somewhat effortless. Ash really does do all the hard graft and eliminates the stress of applying for a job, especially at an International level. I have since advised staff I currently work with (in the UK) and teachers I know online (in the US) that if they are seeking work, SeekTeachers is definitely the first port of call.
     
  • Jessica Devlin Humanities Teacher
    I would like to take the time to thank Ash and the team at SeekTeachers for all their help in obtaining employment for my Husband and I in our dream country. Ash was both a professional and confident throughout the entire process of teacher recruitment. The support that Ash provided was second to none, it almost felt as though he was finding a good friend a job. I have worked with many agencies finding employment in many different countries, however I must commend Ash and the team on doing such a good job. The process of recruitment was very smooth, with Ash being very up front about the opportunities available in Middle East and the documents required for obtaining employment. If you are looking for employment I would look no further than Ash and SeekTeachers, the team comes very highly recommended.
     
  • Selwyn Pires Elementary & English Teacher
    As a teacher with 20 years of teaching experience I have used the assistance of numerous placement agencies. Of all of the ones that I have used SeekTeachers found me a very good job in a very short time. The web site was very user friendly and provided a good description of desirable teaching positions. I was pleased that I came to SeekTeachers and I will definitely recommend this agency to friends and family. I will most certainly continue to use SeekTeachers again in the future.
     
  • Pamela Chandler Primary
    Ash Waheed and SeekTeachers are the BEST hands down!! I was made to feel like I was the only client. Ash has gone above and beyond his call, to make a difference in me and my daughter’s life. I have had the most wonderful experience in obtaining a primary teaching position in the UAE. The service and attention is professional, yet very personal. I am so pleased with the process, from the initial sign up though the interviews. I have been teaching for many years in the United States and have always had desires to teach abroad, but am the first to admit, I knew nothing about how to achieve this feat. After being referred to SeekTeachers, I was immediately guided through the process by Ash. Step by step, again the process very professional, yet personal. After getting all of my documents in and interviewing with Ash, I was confident that he would assist me in finding a position. I felt that with each step my best interest was always being considered. Any and all questions answered, big and small. I felt that my experience, personality, my family status and personal choice were all considered in finding a match, which made the interviewing process so much easier. In most cases like this you find that you get a job and move on, never to hear from the recruiters again, I am certain that this is not the case with SeekTeachers, we have developed a partnership. And as their slogan says we will be working together to educate the world. I will certainly (as I already have) highly recommend anyone pursuing international teaching opportunities to go through SeekTeachers. And if in anyway, I may be utilized as a liaison or an ambassador while in my placement I will be honored to do so. Ash Waheed, my recruiter, my advisor, my friend, thank you, you have changed my life forever. I am looking forward to updating you all on my experience.
     
  • Eman Elshazly SEN/ESL Teacher
    Honestly, the quality of service, dedication and friendliness I found in SeekTeachers is above and beyond my expectations. It took me some time to finish the profile, but it turned out to be really worthy. The Interview with Ash was so professional and friendly at the same time. The support and encouragement he provided gave me a lot of hope! And it wasn't for long till I started having interviews through him and instead of being desperate waiting for an interview I started comparing the offers I received..... A very BIG THANK YOU Ash :) I definitely recommend Seek Teacher to every qualified teacher looking for the right place to land in.
     
  • Faith Moeller Science Teacher
    Working with SeekTeachers was a great experience for me. They helped me with the times of my interviews, setting up my account, and my representative, Ash, could not have been more helpful. He even called me on his own time (late in the evening) with getting everything streamlined for me and asking questions about the interviews. I would not hesitate to recommend this site if you are looking at teaching abroad. They are the best resource!
     
  • Maryam Khawaja Science Teacher
    I am very amazed and happy to see a job well done by Ash and SeekTeachers website. I successfully received a job offer for a Science teacher in a UAE High School, and the whole procedure was so rapid. This is my first time I ever trusted a recruitment website, and the credit goes to Ash for guiding me through every step. I feel as if it’s a miracle that I got in touch with Ash through SeekTeachers website, and before I even realized I landed on an excellent work position. I am given an opportunity to work abroad in UAE for the first time in my life, and I am definitely looking forward to it. I would recommend all teachers considering working abroad to apply through SeekTeachers, and you would be amazed at how conveniently the whole procedure will be done for you. I wish all the best to Ash and thank him a lot for helping me find a great job
     
  • Alma Lopez-mitchell Primary Teacher
    SeekTeachers ROCK!!!!! The consultants there, in particular, Ash, has made my journey to teach abroad as easy and stress-free as possible. The way I see it they didn't just find myself a job, they found my whole family a job. Ash considered my family dynamic and was thoughtful in his suggestions for possible and appropriate school placement. We Skype often and he was even online with me checking out flight prices with various airlines! This man goes beyond the call of duty which is why I can truly call him "friend". With SeekTeachers on your side you never have to second guess your decision.
     
  • Mohammed Rahman ICT Teacher
    My experience of SeekTeachers has been excellent. I have been teaching as an ICT teacher in London for a number of years and this is the first time I'm going to work abroad (in Qatar). Ash was recommended to me by my friend, Atif Alam, who's teaching in Qatar. Right from the first phone call I had with Ash, I received all the support and advice for every point of the application process as I needed. He spent a lot of time explaining all I needed to know about the schools in the middle east, especially about the one I went for my interview with. Ash and his team has always been easy to contact and did all the work on their side to make my application process as smooth as possible. He was very quick to respond to my emails and carried out any requests promptly. SeekTeachers has been very helpful, reliable and transparent with their dealings with me. If I was to look for work abroad again, I'd contact SeekTeachers first and I'd definitely recommend them to any teachers seeking work outside the UK. Thank you Ash!
     
  • Trishawn Hudson Primary Teacher
    I had almost given up after not being accepted to teach abroad with another company, until a colleague told me about her experience with SeekTeachers. I am so glad I listened! Setting up the profile took a little time, but Ash (one of the representatives) was there to guide me through the process and answered any questions I had. My profile gave me access to different schools that were hiring as well as allowed those schools to seek me. Within days, Ash had set me up with two schools that were interested in interviewing me. Shortly after my interview, I was offered a position to teach abroad and now I’m on my away. Thank you so much Ash and SeekTeachers.
     
  • David Waibel Primary Teacher
    I am writing this letter as a recommendation for the services of SeekTeachers. Ash Waheed was my consultant in my employment search. From the beginning he was professional, courteous, and incredibly helpful. Any time I had a question he was always prompt in his response and was always able to answer my inquiries. Ash assisted me in finding a job that was the best possible fit for me and my family. I would recommend SeekTeachers to anyone looking for employment in the teaching field
     
  • Emily Mahon Primary Teacher
    Just to say a big thanks to Ash and all at Seek Teachers. They helped me through every step of acquiring a good teaching job and package to go with it. I was prepared for my interview, talked through how it would go and then given feedback. Any questions (of which I had many) regarding getting a job in Qatar was answered almost immedietly or passed on to the person who could. I am looking forward to finally moving there and don't feel nervous as Ash has posted pictures of Doha and the school and has spoken to me about what to expect and how to legalise my teaching qualifications for Qatar. So glad I found this agency to make the move so much easier and I wouldn't hestitate to use you again or recommend you to a friend.
     
  • Lauren Sargent Elementary Teacher
    Ash and the team at SeekTeachers was absolutely wonderful to work with! I started looking for postions and looking at recruiting agencies in March. After talking with many recruiters and feeling like I was getting no where, I found SeekTeachers and applied for it on a whim. Within hours, I had received an e-mail and a phone call from Ash. He was wonderful to work with and was so personable- throughout the entire process. From taking the initial interview, which really set me up for any and every interview that I had, to securing the perfect position, I was supported every step of the way. The great thing about working with SeekTeachers was that I really felt like they got to know me as a teacher and put my needs first. I loved that they interviewed me and found out what I was looking for in a school, and then matched that with the schools that they represent. I really felt like I was being looked out for, which was a nice change of pace. I’ve worked with a lot of different recruiters- when coming to Korea (where I am currently teaching) and when searching this time- and most of them put them don’t take the time to get to know you and figure out where you would be happiest or fit best. This was completely not the case with Ash and his team. They were also angels about helping me get things that I would need to secure a position in the best possible order- like my CV, my cover letter, etc. Also, SeekTeachers was wonderful about helping me take care of all of my formalities once I was offered my contract. Working oversees already caused considerable difficulties with getting my documents attested and figuring out certain questions that I had. With Ash, all I had to do was ask and everything was set up for me. They provided me with an easy way to have everything taken care of and provided me with EVERY answer to any question that I had. It made my transition so simple and I have yet to feel stressed about any of it! It’s been a wonderful experience! I would recommend SeekTeachers to anyone and will definitely be using them in the future!
     
  • Eileen O'dwyer KG Teacher
    I just want to say a huge thank you to Ash Waheed for hooking me up with the perfect job in Al Ain, UAE. He put so much of his time and effort into making this an effortless and successful experience for me. He had prepared me so well for my interview, and because of this I was offered a contract within days. He is still so willing to help with any questions I have about all other issues and I will continue to seek his advice and expertise in the future. Overall I have had a very worthwhile and successful experience. Again, thank you kindly :)
     
  • Michelle Kelly Primary School Teacher
    I first came in contact with Ash on the 11th of April 2011 after applying for a teaching position in Qatar advertised through SeekTeachers. He had responded diligently to my application, after only a few hours of having applied for the position and asked me to come to an interview in London. He was very helpful during the week before the interview and invested a lot of time and effort helping to get me ready for the interview, explaining what I needed for the interview (even helping with planning my journey to London and what Undrground lines to get once I reached the city) and the position, should I get it, as well as giving me a mock interview via Skype. He was on hand should I have any worries or queries and answered them all promptly. I was very impressed with his assistance and willingness to help me 110%. On the day of the interview he was very helpful and reassuring with the concerns I had going into it. He was also very positive after the interview was finished and took the time to talk to me about how I felt it went. I feel that he helped me secure the position during the debriefing process by reminding the interviewers of my willingness to work and reasoning behind applying for the interview. He has also been very helpful after I secured the job by, answering my questions on the contract and life in Qatar once I move over, and putting me in contact with the right people who will sort out my legal documents required to move over to Qatar. I feel that he is an excellent consultant with SeekTeachers as he pays excellent attention to detail with helping to find people employment and he is very hard working and hands on in trying to get the job secured. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to secure a teaching position abroad through SeekTeachers.

  • Alan Beagley Science Teacher
    I took up my first teaching post in 1977 and since that time have chosen to move from post to post, some short term some longer term contracts. SeekTeachers is a brilliant website, dedicated to our profession rather than the ‘general employment’ sites. The registration process is very clear-cut and straight forward, it makes it very quick and easy to get your CV uploaded and working for you. I had a couple of queries on how best to promote my CV and the guys at Isaac at SeekTeachers was quick to respond and help. Isaac really helped me along the way. Well done Isaac & thanks again!

  • Razvaan Akhtar Primary Teacher
    SeekTeachers is incredibly supportive of their teachers and it has been a pleasure being registered with them. I have been looking to teach abroad for a while now and SeekTeachers has been excellent in aiding me through the process. Registration was FREE and straightforward and Isaac gave me clear guidance and support throughout every stage. I was given advice on how to make my C.V more appealing to potential schools and I was able to amend my details easily online. Isaac has been truly fantastic in offering invaluable professional advice and have understood my needs. They have provided me with any information I have requested and have always been available to answer any questions I have had. Isaac extremely quick in arranging interviews for me and helped me in my preparation for them! I have never before found this level of attention to a personal service. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Isaac and the team at SeekTeachers and wish them continued success for the future!
