Who We Are

Point To Point recruit teachers for positions in schools throughout the UK. We are made up of a team of recruitment experts and former teachers who have taught all over the world. This enables our team to be the best equipped to place education professionals in opportunities around the UK.

What Does Point To Point Do?

Point To Point makes the process of teaching overseas for both teachers and schools easier! Whether you are looking for teaching jobs in the UK or you represent a school looking for international teaching talent, we can facilitate the process through our FIFO or digital interviews.

Not only will teaching overseas give you the opportunity to travel, but it will provide you with excellent professional development opportunities and financial security. Early childhood to primary, full-time or part-time, we make it easy for you to secure an employment contract overseas prior to leaving home.

What is Point To Point all about?

Established in 2012 by three sisters, Point To Point was a business with a focus on Early Childhood Recruitment within Queensland, Australia. Since then we have quickly expanded with the introduction of the divisions in the United Kingdom and New Zealand as well as the International Schools Division. We are a team of passionate education recruitment experts with a broad and deep understanding of teacher recruitment.

Why do we do it?

We do it because we want to place you in your dream teaching job in the UK. Then you can take your career to the next level, explore Europe, and have some unforgettable experiences. The UK is world famous for many things - Fish & Chips, Big Ben, Red Buses, Black Cabs, Oasis, the Beatles and much more. Your next move could be an exciting one!

Kate Liddell

Director of Primary Education

Hi, I’m Kate! I have many years experience working in Education Recruitment along with strong experience in Customer Service and a background in Staff Management. As a trained Primary Teacher with a love for travel, launching Point To Point Education was a natural progression. We love giving our teachers an experience of a lifetime and to provide such amazing teachers to our schools across England. I am based in our Brisbane office and I start my day with a good workout and a strong coffee! In my spare time like to read, cook and spend time outdoors.

Carly Liddell-Lum

Director of Secondary Education

Kia Ora, I am Carly and I am addicted to travel and adventure. Originally, I grew up on the Kapiti Coast in New Zealand and pursued a career in teaching. I always knew I wanted to become a teacher and was accepted into Wellington University at the age of 16 and had my first class by the time I was 19. My teaching career ignited a passion for travel, culture and adventure. During my four years teaching in England I travelled to so many places across Europe and then I went on to teach in an International School in Costa Rica. These experiences led me to meet the most amazing people and to discover places that hold very special memories. Nowadays, as the UK Education Director at Point To Point Education, I am lucky to be able to help other teachers realise their ‘teach and travel’ dreams and continue to discover new places in our world myself as once you get the travel bug… it never leaves you. In my spare time, I love to go to Bikram Yoga, walk my dog Harry and I take up any opportunity to go camping and be in the bush or on the coast.

Emma Liddell

Director of Operations

Hi, I’m Emma! Being a teacher with a passion for travelling, this is the perfect job for me, as we help other educators have the amazing experience of teaching and travelling overseas! Some of my travel highlights have been wine tasting in the Loire Valley, snowmobiling in Bulgaria and relaxing in Positano. When I’m not heading over to the UK to visit all of our teachers, I’m based in our Brisbane office and love playing netball (with fellow Pointers Kate and Chante), going to yoga, and getting into the great outdoors in sunny Queensland.

My name is Chante and I am the Compliance Officer based at the Point To Point Education Brisbane Office. My role allows me to dabble in my love of detail while working within a dynamic, cohesive team. The management team are approachable and extremely supportive which is so important being a working mum wearing many hats.

Sonya Stewart

Education Resourcer (Team Leader)

Hello! I’m Sonya and have been with Point To Point Education for 14 months. I grew up in beautiful Tassie, where my love of the outdoors and nature developed, and also my passion for teaching and education. I completed my Bachelor of Education (Primary), and from there, travelled and taught throughout Australia, including ACT, WA and VIC and also overseas. As well as a background in Education, I have also worked in the Travel and Tourism industry, Administration, Sales and Local Government. My other passion is of course travel (that’s why this job is perfect for me) and I have lived in both the UK and Japan…as well as travelled throughout Europe, Asia, parts of Africa and the US. I’m just about to realise one of my lifelong dreams and will be travelling to Cuba soon. I love being able to support and see teachers I work with fulfil their work and travel dreams, too!

Chris Liddell

Education Resourcer

After 15 years in the financial services industry including, most recently, owning and running a Financial Advisory business, I have sort of returned to my roots with Point To Point Education – coming from a family of educators, I really enjoy getting to know the teachers I deal with and take great pride in matching and placing them with a school that truly fits them professionally and personally. I live in Auckland with my fiancée, Liz, and in my spare time I participate in and watch, a wide range of sports; I am especially passionate about cricket and sit on the board of my local club.

Matthew Simmons

Education Resourcer

Hi I’m Matt, I have made the move from the UK to Brisbane with my partner! My working background is in education, having many roles working at schools in the heart of London. With four years’ experience teaching PE and Special Education I have a vast range of experiences and the knowledge that can help you build the experience you want from the UK.

Being from England I have been lucky enough to have the rest of Europe on the doorstep so have travelled across the continent and had a blast while doing so! I count myself fortunate to have the opportunity to share what I know about the UK and beyond with our teachers. Like my colleague Chris, I am huge sports fan and am most passionate about cricket playing for a local team here in Brisbane.
