After meeting Sheryll in London, I came away thinking ‘This all sounds a bit too good to be true’. Fast forward a year and it really was as easy as she made out! Oasis have been incredibly supportive to me. Moving to the other side of the world is no small decision, but they put my mind at ease from the very beginning.
Beginning in England with advice about registering as a teacher and what teaching in New Zealand is really like; to my arrival, suggesting areas to live and finding me relief teaching (You really can be on the beach by 4pm!), Oasis have been with me every step of the way and made the move as stress-free as it could be. Finally, helping me secure a permanent job in a fantastic school and proving to me that I really have made the best decision. I couldn’t be happier teaching here in Auckland! Victoria (Tor) Huck – UK Teacher

“Sheryll and the team at Oasis Education were fantastic at every stage of the process of finding a teaching position in Auckland. Right from the start, I was given superb advice on a range of subjects – how much I could expect to earn, what living costs would be like and even areas to consider living. Communication was very easy and I felt completely at ease due to the personal service that Oasis offer. The team at Oasis regularly go above and beyond to help their clients; they kindly spoke to the Education council on my behalf when it was difficult to contact them from England and even popped in to visit me for a coffee at work after I had arrived!”

Chris Heaps – UK Teacher

“Deciding to move to New Zealand was an easy decision but finding a new teaching role was very daunting. Meeting Sheryll early on in the process was the best thing that happened! She was so enthusiastic, helpful and supportive every step of the way. No question asked was unanswered and I was even given great advice on places to live and help with a visa for my husband. Upon my first week arriving in Auckland and a warm welcome from the Oasis team, I had secured a full time teaching role. The whole process felt so personal and warm and I could not recommend Oasis more. They will look after you every step of the way!” Jenny Pimlott – UK Teacher

“In July 2018 I decide that I would like a new challenge and to teach in New Zealand. With 14 years teaching experience in geography and business studies I thought that the process would be relatively easy to secure a new teaching position. I applied for 12 potential roles and was not shortlisted for anyone of the positions. I contacted a few schools to gain some feedback on my applications to try and understand why I was struggling to be shortlisted. There responses were the same across the board: All teachers applying to new roles need to gain teacher registration status first and you should also gain the assistance of an educational recruiter. An old work colleague of mine, who had moved to NZ two years earlier, highly recommended Martin Strang from Oasis Education. I cannot sing Martin’s praises enough. His expert knowledge of the application process and his connections within the Auckland area opened the doors to a number of opportunities. Within a month I had secured a new role as the Head of Tourism. His support and guidance did not end there as a number of hurdles still had to be overcome such as visa applications. Martin has always been on hand to answer any questions that arose at anytime. I cannot recommend Oasis Education enough in particular Martin Strang. Six weeks into our move to New Zealand and the entire family is loving the new experience and we are so happy we decided to take the plunge!!”

Henry Gatland – UK Teacher

“I cannot recommend Oasis highly enough for their professionalism, commitment to and care for those of us who are part of the teaching team.”

“I have been with Oasis now for a number of years. They have found me work as a daily relief teacher, consistently from day one. Through them I get to experience a variety of schools and work with children of many different year levels. Oasis expertly manage, at short notice to successfully balance the needs of their schools with the right teacher for the job.”

Kirsty Cameron – NZ Relief Teacher

“My first encounter with Oasis Education was at an Emigrate show in London in 2005. Since meeting an Oasis representative, I received endless support in finding suitable teaching positions as well as help and hints in completing all the paperwork needed to secure a work and residency in NZ. Oasis, for me, bridged the 12,000 mile gap between UK and NZ enabling me to make informed decisions about, not only the schooling system but the communities and people of NZ. Since arriving in the country in January 2006, I have continued to be in contact with Oasis and would recommend them to teachers considering the same move or NZ principals looking to hire new staff.”

Catherine Douglas – UK Teacher

“Oasis takes the anxiety out of finding relievers for day to day school needs with regards to the quality and reliability of their teacher recruitment options.”

“We have been with them for a long time and are extremely happy with the service they provide. Helpful, quick and always to our satisfaction.”

Darryn Smith – Principal

“Moving to a new country and finding a new job is an exciting and daunting experience. I feel so fortunate to have had the support of Oasis Education. They have been there every step of the way sharing their expert knowledge, practical advice and positive encouragement. Thank you so much Oasis Education – with your amazing support, I now have everything in place to start my new teaching job in New Zealand!”

Lyndsey Whettingsteel – UK Teacher

After moving to Auckland in September, I began looking into signing up with a relief teaching agency and I’m so glad I chose to sign up with Oasis!

The process of signing up was so smooth- in the space of three days, I had emailed my interest, met with the team and began my first day of relief teaching!

The Oasis team are so helpful and very quick to reply when you have a query. They are very understanding of your needs whether that may be that you only have access to public transport or that you are only available to work certain days- they make it work for you!

I have been in Auckland 3 months now and I have had relief teaching work every day so there’s no shortage of jobs!

Every teacher thinking of moving to NZ and is looking for relief work should sign up with Oasis! Natalie O'Connell – UK Teacher
