Who we’re not

We are not a traditional education recruitment business with a legacy brand to fall back on. We’re disruptors, just like you. We’re not huge; we don’t have hundreds of offices across the country and we do not have thousands of consultants. We serve the Southeast and we like it that way. We don’t have big egos or big fees. We’re not focused on our share price and our bottom line. Our focus is on delivering success for you. When you succeed, we succeed.

Rachel has been absolutely amazing getting me connected with a school and ready to work. Everyone has been so lovely and easy to reach, they have been so accommodating while I was finishing uni. I'm loving working with them.
Dan was an absolute pleasure to deal with & is also very transparent which is great. He’s always wanting your best interest and is a great guy to speak to. I can’t recommend him and pink tile enough, especially if you’re wanting to start off somewhere in teaching!

I cannot recommend PinkTile enough! Not only do they get stuff done fast and efficiently, but they also care about you as a person!After my school closed down suddenly, I was at a complete loss and overwhelmed. Oli jumped into action and found me a placement (which at nearly summer holiday time, was a feat in itself!!) and has been totally supportive of that journey. After leaving that placement, I worked with Rachel. She has found me some supply work taking into consideration my need for public transport, never leaving me hanging, and always ensuring I am kept in the loop. This is by far the friendliest and most considerate agency I've ever met, and I look forward to continuing to work with them!For any one needing help and support foraging for jobs in the education sector, PinkTile is my number 1 choice for a high quality service that looks after you and your education dreams.

Pink Tile it's the best agency I've ever worked for. Registering already was a smooth and quick, differently than some of my previous experiences and both Rachel and Dan have been nothing but amazing, welcoming and open people! I soon got two job offers that I really liked and the most challenging part so far was really just choosing which school I wanted to go to. Pink Tile was a great decision and led me to a job that I love. Thanks!

Extremely satisfied with all the help Dan and Sophia provided during my registration process with Pink Tile. It was overwhelming at times to go through all the registration documents as well as complete some online courses. Dan was always available to answer any questions or where in-person meeting required. The team is very thorough and transparent, that also provided me with more realistic picture of what to expect. I am happy to report it was very positive and permanent job placement that followed. A very friendly as well as professional and committed team!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Melissa to get my new position. She was keen and enthusiastic throughout and nothing was too much trouble. She took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for and matched me with the perfect opportunity. From my initial contact with Pink Tile to receiving the offer was less than a week. I couldn't ask for more.

Oli has been excellent throughout. Unlike others really listened to what I was looking for and actively did everything he could to make it happen. Even kind of coached me a bit to consider new paths I hadn’t fully considered. Always available, fun to communicate with and always, always working for your benefit. The best supply experience I’ve had. I’ve had a successful outcome working with Oli, but even if I hadn’t just yet this review would read exactly the same as I knew he was working hard for me through out and wouldn’t have stopped until I was sorted!Thanks! You have made my summer holiday so much more fun!;)

Had a really great experience with Pink Tile thus far! I was initially liaising with Keenan who was really lovely and keen to get me into some local schools. I then went on to chat with Dan who had really good knowledge of the special schools in the area. I was only available to work 2 days a week and he has found me a great placement locally for the days I am available! I really appreciate all of his help. Communication with them is fantastic!

Matthew and Sophia at Pink Tile Education have been amazing from the very first phone call. Matthew kept me informed each step of the way. I have now been offered an excellent position which I believe I would not have been in line for if they hadn’t put me forward personally. This process has been organised and completely on the ball and I feel like I know them well just through phone calls and emails.I could go on and on! Fantastic company. Highly recommended ????

I am so grateful to Katie from Pink Tile Education in Brighton for being so incredibly helpful and kind since day 1 I joined Pink Tile Education. She listened and took into account my preferences and found me an amazing school to work as a Modern Foreign Languages teacher in an incredibly short amount of time. I thought I would have to wait months for Pink Tile to find something that suited me and my job experience, but it wasn't like that at all. As soon as I joined Pink Tile Katie arranged job interviews for me and has been amazing. Even now that I'm working already at the school she found for me, Katie checks very often to see how I'm doing. Highly recommend working with Pink Tile as I only have good words for them, especially Katie from Brighton Pink Tile Education.

Pink tile helped me secure a 12 week trial with the Southfield Trust! Mathew Singleton really made the process easy and did most of the work for me! He helped secure a trial shift and created my profile to help me find work. I really recommend going through pink tile to find work, and especially with Mathew if you get lucky! :)

I was finding it difficult to find the right opportunities to get me moving in my teaching assistant role. I contacted a few agencies but Pink Tiles was the one to quickly reply back in a friendly and informative manner.They had me set up and starting employment within a few weeks gaining the experience I needed. Thanks to that, I have since been hired on with the school.Pink Tiles was so easy to work with and really gives that boost you need to get going.

I was really skeptical about working with an agency - But working for Pink Tile with Dan has not felt like an agency, from the very beginning he made me feel so welcome & always checked in on me regarding my new job. He goes above & beyond to make sure you’re happy & communicates very well!! Dan you’re amazing!!
