Just to let you know that I have been employed in Vienna through your website. This was the ultimate goal and we are thrilled! I wanted you to know how grateful I am (and my wife). Thanks for everything. Matt

Reviews of Nick Kendell Search Associates

“Thank you all, especially Nick, for guiding and supporting me in searching for a job globally. My experience with search is excellent. Most importantly, whenever I needed any support, I contacted Nick, and within 24 hours, I received a reply, or he has made time even to meet me virtually and gave me confidence not to give up on my job search. This is the 3rd job that I have found through Search. I can say that  Search Associate is the most reliable recruitment agency.  Farhana

Review of the Search Associates job fair

Even though I was able to secure a job through direct contact with the school, having a Search profile was something I was still happy to update and activate and I was able to learn about other schools with their vacancies as they appeared in real-time and also fantastic to have Nick and his team to ask any questions. With many thanks Nick and team for all that you do. Angela

Julie's review of Search associates

The two of you plus the SEARCH Associates organization have been terrific in assisting me on my journey for over a decade.  There was always ample information, provided well in advance of what was coming up.  You were always prompt in replying to my messages and excellent in answering my questions and giving advice when I requested it.  Thank you! Arthur

Donat'as review of Search Associates

Thank you so much Paula and Nick. I’d like to thank Deidre too, for all her invaluable support during my application process with schools. I learned so much from her expertise and advice on what questions to ask, what is important information to look at regarding leadership and school culture, among other things. Super appreciate you taking the time and guiding me in the process, Deidre. Thank you. Tina

Amanda's review of Search Associates

My wife and family are really looking forward to our new beginning in China. We joined Search Associates on the 22nd of May and had 2 jobs by the 30th, via the database. We are still spinning – we were certain that we would not be off until next year but are stoked with everything about the job. Garrick

Recruiter reviews of search associates

International teaching is allowing us to have a life we couldn’t have elsewhere. In less than 12 months we have had some amazing adventures; Sydney, Hong Kong, Xi’an, Suzhou, Shanghai, Yangshou, Japan, India and have also made it to the finish line of the Great Wall of China half marathon. Why go and lie by a resort pool? Ruth

Nick has been such a friendly and amazing associate to work with over the past few months. He has been a positive force behind us securing amazing positions in a fabulous international school. From the first moment of meeting Nick, we were confident that he knew what he was doing. He has the experience and knows the international school scene very well. What has impressed us the most is his regular and open communication where he’s always ready to answer questions, support, and be optimistic. Michelle and Robert

Thank you, Nick, so much for taking your time to speak with me. I appreciated your advice and felt relieved after speaking with you. I would like to take this moment to thank you so much for all the support you have provided me in my job search. It made a huge difference to me. Rumiko

Search has been my choice since 1998 and I’m now onto my fifth international school and always with Search Associates.  When my partner and I decided to move back onto the international school circuit, there was no question about who we would work with. Nick is the best associate we could ask for!  He is prompt, professional, and organised but his greatest talent is his human guidance and the way he connects with you as a candidate.  It didn’t matter how many emails we sent asking for guidance – whether by Zoom or in writing – Paula and Nick were so helpful and we felt so confident every step of the way.  The Oz/Kiwi site is really good if you are an Antipodean and the process of using the database and organising your profile, etc. is simple and easy to use.  We will take a break now as we relocate to Switzerland but if we move again in the future, we will definitely be working with Search Associates again!  Mel & Mike
