Athona prides itself on executing a transparent recruitment service and upholding the highest level of standards for both our clients and candidates.

This accolade continues to highlight how our team is undoubtedly professionals, experts in recruitment and who adhere to stringent standards of education compliance on a daily basis.

Sourcing exceptional candidates has always started here in the UK, but as a teacher shortage arose, we decided to take our search internationally and opened our Sydney-based office in 2018. This has enabled us to widen our network and as one of few agencies to have a physical presence in Australia, our international recruitment team can easily attend graduate career fairs, meet and register local candidates face-to-face and ensure each candidate is fully prepared for their big move to teach in the UK.

We identify our UK clients need to be supported by an agency that always goes the extra mile. That agency is Athona.
