Kinetic Recruiting

Our story...

Songpyeon is a traditional Korean food made of rice powder. It is a type of tteok, small rice cakes, traditionally eaten during the Korean autumn harvest festival, Chuseok.

Born in Vancouver, Canada, Tony Riordan spent his childhood and school years in England living mostly around the Herts Essex borders just outside the North East of London.

After leaving school he spent a couple of years working as a sales assistant in a busy electrical store, but decided to move back to Canada where he continued to work in electronics and customer care while studying for his degree in Cognitive Science from Simon Fraser University.

In 2018 he decided that it was time for a new adventure and gained his qualifications as a Teacher of English Language before moving to South Korea to teach at a small academy in the heart of Chungcheongbuk-do surrounded my mountains and city life. This is where he met and married Juliet. After working at several different teaching academies Tony and Juliet decided to launch Kinetic Recruiting in order to match teachers to the academies they would love to work at. 

Kinetic Recruiting received certification and a business licence in June of 2021 and has successfully started placing teachers. Kinetic recruiting is in the process of forming partnerships with  large TEFL academies from North America and we are creating relationships with ESL academies throughout South Korea every day.

WE want to stick to our motto:  Moving the Kinetic way means you will move  healthily and safely.
