Our recruitment experience in education

We’re committed to helping education institutions reach quality candidates, build resilience and empower learning. Find out how our specialised recruitment services will help you find passionate educators and enable both your staff and pupils to meet their ambitions. 

Academic institutions of all stripes have had to adapt to wide-ranging shifts in recent years; from evolving the ways of engaging pupils, to more prolific use of technology. Perhaps now more than ever, providing the best education relies on having the right people with the right skills in place – from NQTs right through to SLT.  

As your recruitment partner in education, our support goes beyond recruitment alone. We’ll support your school with not only the best talent, but a truly comprehensive education service: 

  • Our geographical reach and detailed database allow our consultants to search over 400,000 education professionals, ensuring we’re perfectly placed to match the right candidates to your vacancies.
  • Whether you’re working in a school, college, academy, MAT or nursery, we have the knowledge, partnerships and expertise to find the right people for your organisation. 
  • Empower your learning environments and experiences with our roster of digital services. Whether it be our Education Hub, or our Inspire resource framework that links pupils to the world of work, our digital solutions will bolster your school’s resilience and value. To make things even simpler, our Recruitment Platform can consolidate these digital solutions and increase visibility of training, documentation, vacancies and more. 
  • An off the shelf solution can’t account for your school’s specific circumstances, needs and challenges. As your recruitment partner, we’ll always take a bespoke approach. We’re here to offer objective advice and expanded services as you move forward, and your needs evolve.
