Obinna Christopher Obinna Christopher

I joined academics January 2022 and recruit Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Cover Supervisors for our Secondary Schools in South London. I have 5 years’ experience in recruitment/sales and come from a health and social care/educational background myself. I aim to match great caring working professionals with the right schools, to provide positive and effective support to the schools.

If you have any questions about daily supply, permanent or contract placements please get in contact I would like to speak with you, even for a friendly hello! I support Liverpool FC (Best club in the world YNWA!) and enjoy watching shows that intrigue the mind as well as reading and gaming.

Jack Bisson Jack Bisson

I joined Academics in November of 2021, as a Resourcer recruiting Primary and Secondary staff for our schools in North and West London and really enjoying being a part of the team. I strive to make your first experience of Academics personal, straight-forward and exciting. Whether you’re a teacher or support staff, I’ll listen to what you’re looking for, so we give you a seam-less journey from registration to your first day.

I’m always out to seek adventure and experience something new in my spare time. I became a qualified scuba diver in the Caribbean and travelled around Vietnam, spending a week in a remote village, to help build a path through the mountains. I’m out most weekends with my dog Teddy, who’s never too far from me and loves his treats!
