Mark F - Senior Recruiter

My career started in science, and for twenty years I worked as a scientist and manager for GE Healthcare in the UK. I left GE in 2008 and moved to SE Asia to study a TEFL course and pursue a career in teaching English to learners from the ASEAN countries.

After tutoring children on a one-to-one basis for two years I decided to start teaching online and utilize the skills that I had spent the last twenty or so years nurturing.

I have now branched out to ESL recruitment too and my experience in teaching has given me a keen insight as to what the challenges are that teachers face on a day to day basis.

Elle - Business strategist

Elle’s love of languages started at a young age as her family were lucky enough to live in several different countries throughout her childhood. Falling into a sales role as an adult, she was instrumental in taking a start-up business to the nationally-recognised number 1 in the industry in only 3 years, according to leading industry name, Rightmove.

 Selling the business and retiring to Spain opened new opportunities to return to her love of languages and passing that on through teaching, in class and online. At Synergy Recruitment, Elle is able to combine skills from both fields and help other people achieve their dreams of working with languages.
