“This is the first ever testimonial I have ever done so it’s a mark of the service I have received. 123Teachers were the first to actually listen to what I wanted from a role rather than what the company wanted, making money. I have found that they will keep in touch through texts, emails, calls, rather than just ring me and say "go here". I have prided myself on 'my word' as professional and have found that 123teachers will also honour their word while respecting my wishes as a professional. In the one term that I have worked for them I continue to hold them in high regard and know they are on my side throughout my time with them.”
