Having developed a wealth of experience in the sector, we believe one size does not fit all, and that each client is different and unique, so we adopt a tailored approach to ensure your individual needs are fully considered.

You will be offered a dedicated Client Relationship Manager (CRM) who will meet with you face to face to discuss your requirements and to gain insight into the specific role and the culture of your organisation.

We understand the importance of sector specific knowledge and that is why all our consultants work in specialist teams with focused areas of expertise.

Who we work with

Achieving the outstanding

“The service I got from jjFOX was fantastic. It was stressful trying to find someone at very short notice to cover for long term sickness, but Jon took all the stress away.”

"He guided me through what needed to be done, found me two high quality candidates to choose from and co-ordinated everything so it all went really smoothly. He kept communicating with me throughout the entire process, even checking how things were going once the cover had started. I cannot recommend jjFOX and Jon highly enough!"

James Heart of Worcestershire College

“Having worked in education for over 10 years, it is always a challenge to find reliable staff to cover in the absence of others.”

"Following my initial contact with jjFOX, I was appointed a subject specialist (Adrian) who was able to recognise my needs and place the appropriate priority to source a temporary member of staff that would suit the criteria required for the role. The temporary worker appointed fully matched my requirements and was able to carry out the duties required of them. An electronic timesheet system was used via email that was quick and easy to complete with clear references to the hours worked. I have successfully used jjFOX on a number of occasions and have found the service to be friendly and professional at all times with a strong emphasis on good customer service."

“We approached jjFOX about a vacancy we had for a music teacher and Scott was very diligent in searching out CVs for us and sending them on.”

"As we decided to see two people, Scott and I liaised about timings, he then came back to me very quickly for updates and to let me know that the candidates had confirmed. On the morning of the interviews Scott contacted me to say that the candidate for the afternoon had dropped out that morning. He was very apologetic about it and asked if I would consider someone else. I agreed as long as they met the criteria and if we could have the paperwork by 11.30am. Good to his word, Scott identified someone to come in for the afternoon slot and sent through their CV so the panel could see it before the interview. He turned out to be an excellent candidate.

We really appreciated not only him finding someone at such short notice for us but providing the right kind of candidate rather than just putting a body in and wasting everyone’s time. He really did go the extra mile – thanks Scott."

Janette Patterson | HR Manager, Bute House Preparatory School

“Jon has been my main contact at jjFOX. I’ve spoken to him a number of times this academic year, in particular on 3 specific occasions where I’ve needed cover.”

"On these occasions, Jon has been extremely helpful, keenly wishing to know what the roles entailed so that he could match them to the right candidates and keeping me up to date regularly throughout his search. Having needed supply in 2 key and hard to recruit for subjects (accounting and IT networking) Jon was honest with the calibre of candidates available but also on their availability. We had a successful match for an IT cover, who is still in place and who we’ve requested more hours with, as he is having a really positive impact on our learners with their progress and achievement. I know that should I ring Jon I will always get an honest, timely and helpful response to any needs I have. Thank you!"

Sam McKenna | Head of School for Business, Computing and Management, Preston’s College

“Teacher recruitment in London has been very challenging for the last few years. Employing high calibre staff has not only been difficult but practically impossible recently. Rotherhithe has faced some staff turnover this year and within the already depleted field, we struggled to recruit the right candidates for our school.”

"Just when I was about to give up all hope I received an email from jjFOX about a potential candidate. I made contact with Peter and I instantly liked his approach, his manner and ability to understand my recruitment needs in a very short time. Within a few weeks he had found an excellent Maths leader, an enthusiastic and energetic class teacher and a very experienced SENCo to join my team. To say that I was very impressed would be an understatement.

The service we received was efficient with outstanding communication between the school and the agency. Peter is a good listener and can capture a school's situation and recruitment needs very quickly. He is responsive, open and honest and this has made working with jjFOX an absolute dream. I have already introduced jjFOX to several head teachers.

If you are looking for reliability, efficiency and excellent communication whilst providing high quality teachers… then jjFOX is the agency to make this all happen!"

Galiema Amien – Cloete | Executive Head Teacher, Rotherhithe Primary School

“Chris has worked on a number of roles for us and always provides a high standard of service. ”

"I would describe his approach to providing CVs and sourcing candidates as 'quality not quantity', which is perfect as it alleviates our need to spend time discounting inappropriate candidates.

He is always up for a challenge, which we have been known to provide, but is honest in his appraisal of a situation and in so doing manages expectations of all parties.

He keeps in touch regularly when sourcing candidates but only with relevant information.

Overall I would rate Chris as a well accomplished consultant who understands our business and works hard to provide us with the best candidates available."

Claire Lee | HR Coordinator, West Herts College

“During the twenty years of Headship at the school we have had occasion to use several teaching agencies both for supply and permanent members of staff.”

"I have to say that without a shadow of doubt we have had exemplary service from Chris. He listened to our requirements and needs, did his utmost to provide a suitable selection of candidates and enabled us to acquire a new member of staff who is perfect for the position – a KS2 Teacher with Deputy Headship responsibilities.

We could not be happier and have no hesitation in recommending jjFOX.

Thank you Chris!"

Mrs A Wilson | Head Teacher, St. Martin's School
