The cost implications of using multiple agencies without agreed or preferential rates poses a major challenge for schools. That's why we have designed a programme to help you to reduce agency spend, by offering you a charge structure that is built around your unique requirements.

We will carry out a full cost review to create a charge structure to enable you to forecast spend effectively, increase efficiencies and meet budget commitments. We also tailor our service to ensure that it best suits your school's individual needs. And when you work in partnership with Hays to recruit temporary staff, you’ll receive the following exceptional benefits:

Guaranteed service delivery

  • Specified lead times - We will draw up a service level agreement to cover all temporary vacancies in return for access to all detailed benefits.
  • One point of contact backed by an expert delivery team - We will assign you one point of contact, alongside a team of specialist consultants who'll be on hand to assist you with all your recruitment needs.
  • Extended working interviews - Every temporary worker that we recommend for vacancies of over four weeks can be provided on a half-day trial working interview.
  • Priority access to preferred candidates - Preferred candidates will be reserved for your school.

Composite invoicing

We’ll give you a composite weekly or monthly invoice for all temporary staff provided  to reduce administration and offer a more environmentally friendly payment process.

Rebate for services delivered

At the end of the 12 month period we will give you a rebate according to the value of services we deliver throughout the agreement .

To reward you for your continued business, the value of the rebate will increase through the first, second and third years to the maximum rebate amount.

Online training

  • Skills testing - We offer a range of online sector-specific skills tests for support staff, including standard software packages such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint.
  • Safeguarding training - All of our temporary staff complete training modules covering safeguarding, health and safety, e-safety and roles & responsibilities.

You can also purchase the online training courses to deliver to permanent members of staff at a discounted rate.

Free best value audit of HR and back office systems

Through our partnership with Strictly Education we can offer you a free audit of HR and back office systems to improve cost and time efficiencies.
