Who are we?

DJM is an independent, privately owned professionally managed company built over eighteen years ago by our founding Directors David Manson and Bronwyn Ward-Manson.

A ‘wee’ bio about our founding Directors:

David grew up in Scotland, in a coastal town south of Glasgow. Being Scottish David has the typical Scottish dry humour and love of the outdoor life.

Prior to DJM, David worked in an International Corporate IT company for many years in the city of London

Bronwyn grew up in Marree a small remote  community in the middle of the desert in the far north of South Australia.

Being an outback desert brat meant Bronwyn has a typical outback approach to life being independent, resourceful and never afraid of a challenge.

  • She has many years experience in Education being a classroom teacher in South Australia and London & part of a Curriculum advising team supporting schools in South Australia & Australia in their implementation of the National curriculum; prior to DJM Bronwyn was a manager in a global teaching agency in London

Both are actively involved in many sporting & outdoor pursuits including playing racquet sports to a high level; sailing around the coasts of Greece, Croatia, Turkey & the UK; flying light aircraft around England; and cycling the routes of the UK & France

Our teams have been with us a long time and include:

Martin leading Accounts team; Audrey leading the Payroll team; Nick Advertising and Marketing team; Sarah Compliance; And Ella, Kate, Amy and Jenni consultant specialists.

And of course where would we be without all those fantastic adventurous DJM teachers who over the years have contributed to the amazing and fun DJM Family.

As      Sandra said on her return to Melbourne Australia :

” firstly I would like to thank you for everything you have done for me before and during my move to the UK. Moving overseas can be a scary thing and it was nice to know I was working for a teaching agency who actually cared about the teachers they had working for them. The support you gave me through out my time in London and helping me create a friendship base by putting me with other teachers and having social functions, I think goes above & beyond what is expected of you running a teaching agency. Thank you! ”
