It is important that we understand as much as we can about you as an individual. So to start we will ask you a series of questions covering your qualifications, career path to date and future aspirations. As well as matching skills and core competencies we will be looking for the right cultural fit for you and your potential employer.

We will discuss all suitable opportunities with you and advise you on the best approach for interview so that you are fully prepared to deliver your best.

Achieving the outstanding

“My whole experience with jjFOX has been hugely successful, primarily because they were responsible for finding me the best placement I have ever secured at a school, a school which I am still working at.”

"Whilst I was contracting with jjFOX, I found them to be extremely organised and helpful and I felt that I did not have to worry at all due to their efficiency.

Since working with jjFOX, I have recommended them to many of my friends who work in education. In comparison to other agencies I have worked with, jjFOX has proven to be the best education agency I have been involved with."

Sobia | SEN TA, SEN Primary School, West London

“Thank you for all your hard work and that of your team. I have found jjFOX to be extremely efficient and professional.”

"Mark always kept me informed with the key information that I needed and even enquired about my well being.  It has been a pleasure working with you and I would recommend your agency to my colleagues and schools that I work with. Thanking you all again."

Lana | EYFS Teacher, SEN Primary School, Birmingham

“I have had a lot of dealings with jjFOX in various placements over the years. My advisor Josh, has always given me his undivided attention and has been a pleasure to deal with.”

"He has always explained what is required from the role, the responsibilities and what I should expect. On my most recent assignment/placement he rang me weekly for an update and to see how I was getting on. Through a tricky patch with this role he gave me advice drawing on his extensive knowledge of my sector and supported me through it.

I have been able to talk to him about qualifications that I would like to achieve and where I would like to go next. His service has been second to none.

I would recommend jjFOX to anyone looking for a temporary or full time position."

Fiona | Health & Social Care Lecturer, London

“I worked with jjFOX when I was relocating to London from Birmingham. I had a limited timeframe in which I could attend interviews; the team understood this and were very proactive in organising a number of interviews based on my needs.”

"The team at jjFOX was friendly and professional throughout the recruitment process and kept in contact to ensure I felt supported. I was also very impressed with how they clearly communicated with each other and could all answer any questions I had. Thanks very much!"

Joanna | KS1 (+ ICT Coordinator TLR) Teacher, Primary School, South East London

“jjFOX was one of a few agencies that I registered with last year (having previously been employed in an East London Primary School where I completed my teacher training and decided to work at for over 12 years). It was at first, quite a daunting experience - I was apprehensive although I needn't have worried. ”

"Once registered, the process was simple and straight forward.  Pete and the other staff who I was in contact with were very professional, and frequently checked in to discuss prospective placements.  You knew that they were very proactive in making contact with schools in order to find the right employment for me. Visits and introductions with schools were quickly arranged which fortunately led to a successful job interview and a permanent placement. Thank you."

Jennifer | SENCo, Primary School, South East London

“Ryan and the team at jjFOX made the whole process from obtaining the interview to engagement by West Herts College very easy for me.”

"Ryan was always in contact with me to inform me of the next steps and to give advice and answer any of my questions. One of the benefits of using jjFOX is that they take a lot of the pressure off looking for a new job and will always talk to you before they arrange any interviews to ensure that this is the field you wish to work in. 

I would recommend jjFOX to all my work colleagues and friends (if they were looking for work within the education sector), as Ryan and the whole team do their upmost to find the correct placement for that person. Once they find you a placement they do not just stop there as they will ring you to find out how you have settled in and if everything is going well with your new position.

I can honestly say that without Ryan I would not be working where I am today."

Robert | Electrical Lecturer, West Herts College

“I have worked with jjFOX for over three years and during this time I have found them to be nothing short of excellent.”

"My personal contact within jjFOX is Paul. I cannot overstate how happy I have been with his service and professional attention to detail. Phone calls are always answered promptly – if return calls with information have been requested they are always carried out as promised.

The friendliness and professionalism of all jjFOX staff shows through consistently and help and advice is always readily available. Salary payments and expenses are made on time, every time, and with the minimal of 'customer input' requirement.

I cannot fault jjFOX's service in any department and would thoroughly recommend them as the first and only call you will need to make when considering using an umbrella company to work with."

Christopher | Motor Vehicle Lecturer, West Midlands
