Looking to further your career?

No matter where you are on your career path in education, just starting out or looking for a senior position, we are here to help.

As specialists and well established leaders in education recruitment, we have built an extensive network of primary and secondary schools, further education colleges and commercial training organisations nationwide – many of which work with us on an exclusive basis so we are first to be briefed on potential roles and opportunities.

Our approach

All our consultants work in specialist sector teams with focused areas of expertise so will be able to provide up to date insight into market conditions and trends within your subject area or locality, as well as giving advice on CV writing and most importantly, how to stand out at the interview.

It is important that we understand as much as we can about you as an individual. So to start we will ask you a series of questions covering your qualifications, career path to date and future aspirations. As well as matching skills and core competencies we will be looking for the right cultural fit for you and your potential employer.

We will discuss all suitable opportunities with you and advise you on the best approach for interview so that you are fully prepared to deliver your best.

Simon | Joinery Lecturer, UK

“jjFOX was one of a few agencies that I registered with last year (having previously been employed in an East London Primary School where I completed my teacher training and decided to work at for over 12 years). It was at first, quite a daunting experience - I was apprehensive although I needn't have worried. ”

"Once registered, the process was simple and straight forward.  Pete and the other staff who I was in contact with were very professional, and frequently checked in to discuss prospective placements.  You knew that they were very proactive in making contact with schools in order to find the right employment for me. Visits and introductions with schools were quickly arranged which fortunately led to a successful job interview and a permanent placement. Thank you."

Jennifer | SENCo, Primary School, South East London

“Chris Wilkinson is highly recommended for the quality of customer service and customer care that he provides.”

In my interactions with Chris on the telephone and via email I found him to be highly responsive, very personable and both down to earth and professional, with quick follow up about the employer’s requirements and availability for interview but also respectful of the time in which I wasn’t able to speak and working around my availability as best he could. Of all the recruitment consultants I have had contact with over a number of years, Chris Wilkinson is the best and he is highly recommended for his approach and his level of recruitment support and customer care."

I would like to express sincere gratitude for the way in which Adam conducted himself through my recruitment process. I have worked through agencies for 12 years as an Electrician then as a Tutor. This was by far the best experience of dealing with a recruiter and Adam needs to take a huge slice of credit for that.

“My whole experience with jjFOX has been hugely successful, primarily because they were responsible for finding me the best placement I have ever secured at a school, a school which I am still working at.”

"Whilst I was contracting with jjFOX, I found them to be extremely organised and helpful and I felt that I did not have to worry at all due to their efficiency.

Since working with jjFOX, I have recommended them to many of my friends who work in education. In comparison to other agencies I have worked with, jjFOX has proven to be the best education agency I have been involved with."

Sobia | SEN TA, SEN Primary School, West London

“I have worked with jjFOX for over three years and during this time I have found them to be nothing short of excellent.”

"My personal contact within jjFOX is Paul. I cannot overstate how happy I have been with his service and professional attention to detail. Phone calls are always answered promptly – if return calls with information have been requested they are always carried out as promised.

The friendliness and professionalism of all jjFOX staff shows through consistently and help and advice is always readily available. Salary payments and expenses are made on time, every time, and with the minimal of 'customer input' requirement.

I cannot fault jjFOX's service in any department and would thoroughly recommend them as the first and only call you will need to make when considering using an umbrella company to work with."
