Kia Ora! I’m Dereck, the newest recruitment consultant to join the international team at London Bridge. I arrived in London from New Zealand at the end of 2007 and have been soaking up the London lifestyle ever since.
I graduated as a teacher from Waikato University in 2004 and from there moved to the capital to pursue my teaching career. I worked for an awesome primary school in Miramar for my duration of time in Wellington before I set off on my overseas adventure. Since arriving in London I have worked at a variety of Primary schools gaining first hand experience of what it is like to relocate to the UK, find a flat, set myself up and the big one…Find that first teaching job!!!!
Since my time in London I’ve been lucky enough to travel to New York and have just begun to scratch the surface of Europe travelling through Ireland, The Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium. For the rest of my time I have been mixing it up in and around London and have been discovering just how amazing the UK is!
Having first hand experience finding work through an agency, I have experienced both the good and the bad and this is my reason for moving into International Recruitment. I am focussed on giving every teacher I work with the best transition possible and I am committed to finding them the right school every time.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you to make your move all that it should be.
