After a two-year apprenticeship as a teaching assistant in a secondary school, Jack was adamant that he was best suited to Keystage 3 and up – but we could see his potential to make a real contribution in the primary sector. After our initial meeting, we spoke to one of our client primary schools about Jack and they were keen to meet him. Jack was sceptical at first, as he was convinced that he wanted to work in secondary schools, but we advised him to go for the interview. He came out buzzing – he loved the feel and ethos of the school, and they loved him. Jack was offered a permanent position, which he accepted, and both parties were extremely happy.
Knowing our candidates better than they know themselves
