Meet The Team

Here at Opus Teach we understand the importance of knowing who is behind the phone when working with an agency. Having great relationships with both our teachers and schools is vital to working efficiently and being personable. Opus Teach work hard to ensure we know as much as possible about each candidate in order to know exactly what schools and placements will suit them in an instant. Similarly, we want you to be able to know who you are speaking to, so we thought we would introduce the team!

Charlie Shepherd – Account Manager

I have been working in recruitment for 3 and half years, with 2 and half in the Education sector.

Prior to this I spent 6 and half years in the army as part of the Coldstream Guards serving one tour in Afghanistan in 2014. My hobbies include cars, golf and most of all rugby. I have recently taken on the role of Head Coach at Hadleigh Rugby Club.

Being the newest member of Opus Teach has been a breath of fresh air from my previous agency, with how much Opus care about the safeguarding of the children and ensuring all staff are of the highest quality.


Ellie Lowes – Account Manager

I started at Opus in 2017 as a Digital Marketing Apprentice, working on the initial launch of Opus Teach and almost two years later I am now an Account Manager for Opus Teach!

I live locally just outside of Bury St Edmunds and love the gym and going on holiday!

As the youngest member of the team, I remember just what it was like to be in school and the importance of great education and the role great quality teachers play. With this in mind I pride myself on being passionate about helping schools find the quality of staff they require.


Suzanne Mildinhall – Account Manager

I have just returned from maternity leave with my second child and have really enjoyed the summer with my 2 girls. Previous to my maternity leave I helped with the implementation of Opus Teach and am passionate to see it grow and achieve the high standards we had set for ourselves.

Outside of work I enjoy music, baking and have recently taken up jogging (very slowly).  I live in Stowmarket with my little family, including 2 cats called Colin and Sammie, and this Halloween I have been married 10 years!

I’m excited to return to work and carry on supporting schools across Suffolk and beyond with their staffing needs!


Sophie Storey – Administrator Wizz!

I joined Opus Teach in April as an administrator helping with obtaining and maintaining the high quality compliance we require for our supply teachers and assisting our schools and teacher with any administrative queries.

At Opus Teach I build on experience from a variety of administrative roles, most excitingly whilst I was working on cruise ships around the world. I love travelling to new places and spending time with family and friends. I also love my Friday lunch trips to get a Mac n Cheese wrap from Ipswich market!
