Passionate About Education Recruitment

We are passionate about finding the right solution for schools and candidates, ranging from short-term cover to permanent positions, whether it being teacher jobs, teaching assistant jobs or supply teacher jobs.  We enjoy the double responsibility of working in education recruitment.  Like all recruiters, we have a role in contributing to our candidates’ happiness by finding them the right jobs.  But in education, we believe it’s not just about filling vacancies: we are also looking to add real value to schools by finding them staff who can make a positive difference to their pupils. 

 

We know that getting the best results means sticking to certain principles:

Quality, not quantity:  We manage realistic workloads for all our recruitment consultants so we always provide a quality service and experience for all parties.

Honesty: The worst thing we can do is place the wrong person in the wrong job, for both the client and the candidate. We operate with transparency and are always straight with all parties.  

Comprehensive service: We work with all our teachers, teaching assistants, support staff and schools to provide a thorough service.  From initial interviews, through placement and follow up, you can rest assured that you will receive the upmost care and attention from us. 

Long-term relationships: It is our excellent relationships with schools across Kent and Medway that enable us to add real value for them and our teaching candidates.  We take time to understand what schools are looking for, so we can spot potential and talent on their behalf and create excellent openings for our teachers. 

Dedicated consultants: We provide dedicated consultants for both candidates and schools so they have one point of contact who will work on their behalf to find their perfect match. 

 

Proven Expertise

We have 20 years’ recruitment experience within education recruitment, which enables us to deliver a quality service for both candidates and schools.

 

Broad sector experience: We have wide experience of working in the primary, secondary and SEN sectors; of finding opportunities for experienced teachers, Newly Qualified Teachers, final-year students and overseas trained teachers. We are able to secure emergency supply, short-term cover and long-term placements.  We understand the current education system, the Local Education Authorities and the needs of schools, and we’re up-to-date with current legislation.

Specialist SEN knowledge: We have unrivalled knowledge of Special Educational Needs, which we use to find the right match for all categories of SEN.  

Excellent track record: Teachers, teaching assistants, and schools come back to us time and again, because we supply the latest teacher jobs, teaching assistant jobs and supply teacher jobs available. We consistently get recommendations because we understand their needs and find matches that add real value for them. 

We understand the science and the art: Education recruitment is both a science and an art; the science is understanding the compliance and legal obligations, the art is knowing which candidate will fit well within a particular school or job.  An individual teacher or teaching assistant may be a perfect fit for one school, but completely out of place with another school just down the road.  We have honed our expertise through our experience of working with teachers and schools to understand what they are both looking for.

Testimonial

When one of George’s family required care, he was forced to give up his established teaching job and relocate at short notice.  New to Kent, he was unfamiliar with the local schools.  We carried out a thorough face-to-face interview with him to understand his skills, character, personal ambitions and preferences.  From this, we created a tailored marketing plan for George.  We contacted the head teachers of schools that matched his career aspirations and arranged three interviews for him within a day.  He successfully secured a long-term assignment within a week, which led to a permanent job.  A pretty good result from a standing start! 

Perfect job for secondary teacher forced to relocate at short notice due to family circumstances
