UK Education Garden has a very different business model from other education consultants. We embed our beliefs in education firmly in conducting our business, looking after all our students and their families with genuine care, and focus not just on getting the right schools for the students but also on their long term well-being when they study in the UK. That includes providing career advice, ensuring sustainability of relationship with their families and maintaining the cultural heritage.

We are now looking for like-minded and experienced individuals in our Business Development area. Initially we will likely be working with you under a consulting agreement, moving to a more permanent arrangement based on your results.
