Global Talent, No Boundaries: Teamed & MyTutor


Company Overview

MyTutor is a dynamic UK-based tutoring platform that specialises in connecting expert tutors with parents and children in need of personalised 1:1 or 3:1 lessons. With a commitment to affordable pricing and streamlined access to quality education, MyTutor’s  Employment of Record (EoR) software is now one of the leading B2C and B2B tutoring solutions in the UK.

Also collaborating with dedicated tutors and university students to support programmes such as the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), MyTutor has provided academic assistance to schools all over the country adapting to the changing face of post-pandemic education.


In the wake of the Covid pandemic, MyTutor faced a pressing challenge: how to retain their talent pool amidst a rapidly changing work landscape. As an increasing number of employees expressed a desire to return to their home countries or explore opportunities abroad, the Covid-19 pandemic marked a shift in the dynamic of MyTutor’s core teams.

With growth opportunities for the company also triggered by an increase in remote learning, keeping hold of long-standing team members with knowledge of the company’s history was essential.

However, without an extensive global presence, the traditional approach of setting up offices abroad wasn't a viable solution. In light of these challenges, MyTutor sought a partner that could seamlessly facilitate remote work options, ensure overseas compliance, and cater to the operational needs of the company.

Discovering Teamed

When a software engineer with four years of dedicated service proposed a move to Spain, MyTutor required urgent assistance to support the relocation of this employee. Having researched different platforms and service providers in the UK and abroad, the solution to this talent retention challenge came in the form of Teamed.

Recommended by a peer already leveraging Teamed's capabilities, Teamed emerged as a solution that could allow this employee to work remotely from Spain, without the usual hurdles associated with international work arrangements.

Eliminating the risk of losing the expertise of this employee and having to invest in the hiring and onboarding of new talent, Teamed enabled MyTutor to facilitate a smooth and efficient relocation process without tying up valuable resources during a crucial growth phase.

“For us, the simplicity of the platform is really helpful. Managing overseas employees feels easy now because of how intuitive the platform is. With other platforms, if it takes more than 5 clicks to do one task, you’ve lost us — so we really appreciate how fast and straightforward Teamed is.”

Notable Benefits of Teamed

For MyTutor, Teamed was able to satisfy not only challenges associated with retention but also aid a more progressive approach to global hiring within the company.

“Teamed has definitely helped us transform our hiring process. It allows us to cast the net so much further and target talent we know will be beneficial to our business, regardless of where they’re based!”

In terms of navigating the complexities of overseas hiring and global mobility, Teamed was almost instantly able to improve MyTutor’s agility and operational efficiency — aligning with MyTutor's future-proofing strategies.

For instance, Teamed allowed MyTutor to hire an employee based in South Africa ahead of their UK move, providing them with a grace period to finalise their visa and travel arrangements, while also getting ahead of the onboarding process and ensuring a seamless integration upon their arrival.

Teamed's Onboarding Process

One of the standout aspects of Teamed's service is the comprehensive onboarding process. By engaging with MyTutor and understanding their unique circumstances, Teamed has been able to craft tailor-made onboarding solutions for each international employee.

From contract compliance to country-specific insights, Teamed takes care of all the details, allowing MyTutor to present a comprehensive benefits package to employees that caters to both parties’ needs.

Some of the other reasons Teamed’s EoR software stands out as a leading solution for MyTutor includes:

  • Efficient customer service: An in-house team of customer service agents is always on hand to support Teamed clients with quick response times and prompt issue resolution to ensure operational continuity.
  • Speed and adaptability: Teamed’s responsiveness and flexibility as a platform work well with MyTutor’s fast-paced work environment, providing tailored solutions as needed. This has resulted in MyTutor's collaboration with Teamed intensifying quickly in a short space of time.
  • User-friendly platform: MyTutor's preference for streamlined processes makes working with Teamed's user-friendly platform all the more appealing. Amidst the hustle and bustle of day-to-day operations, intuitive software is vital for efficiency.
“How quickly we can get things set up is a real plus for our team. The speed at which Teamed moves enables us to keep up with employee needs and facilitate international moves, even at short notice.”

The Impact of Teamed

As MyTutor embraced Teamed's solutions, they noticed a positive shift across company culture for both new recruits and the existing workforce.

The ability for Teamed to simplify previously complex processes not only promotes trust and engagement from the outset, it also sets a positive tone for the employee-employer relationship.

By partnering with Teamed, MyTutor has been able to:

  • Enhance the employee experience: Simplifying complex procedures has fostered trust and engagement right from the start, especially for those navigating tricky transitions to or from abroad.
  • Implement a more flexible working model: Teamed has enabled MyTutor to launch a “working abroad policy” — where employees are allowed to work 80 days in every year abroad.
  • Facilitate employee needs: Employees are no longer tied down by their location which means they are free to take opportunities that present to them, while maintaining stable employment.
  • Extend their talent search to strategic locations: MyTutor can now focus their attention on attracting employees from a much wider talent pool, improving operational resilience and ensuring long-term success.
“Through our working abroad policy, we’ve been able to give employees a flavour for living in a new country and experiencing new things, while still remaining employed by MyTutor.”

Advice for Global Hiring

MyTutor is enthusiastic to recommend Teamed to organisations seeking a stress-free but highly effective global hiring solution. The platform's simplicity, directness, and accessibility make it a valuable asset for establishing a diverse workforce across continents.

MyTutor's experience with Teamed highlights how its capabilities can enhance the initial employee journey and contribute to long-term employee satisfaction, as well as unlocking new opportunities along the way.

In partnership with Teamed, MyTutor can continue to tackle the challenges of a changing work landscape, while also reaping the rewards of a more diverse and globally connected workforce.
