I have found Link Education to be professional in terms of finding suitable employment that meets the criteria of the school and myself. Through finding suitable schools they have taken into account the location of the school and the distance I have to travel to the school via public transport. They have even found transport by asking other employees to assist me. Overall I would recommend Link Education because they are honest,reliable and caring both for the school and teachers.
