In-depth knowledge of the industry

Our recruitment consultants work with schools and colleges across the UK. They are aware of their recruitment needs and are often privy to roles before they are even advertised. Not all roles are advertised and so working with an established recruitment consultant with strong links to their clients, will allow you to get roles that are not even advertised, nor available through other agencies.

Free careers advise

Perhaps you’re looking for a change in role. Maybe you’re considering moving into a leadership role, or perhaps move from secondary education to further education teaching. Your consultant will be able to look at your CV and either find you a role with a step up, or help you gain the experience/qualifications to achieve this.

CV writing help

Our consultants see hundreds of CVs every week. They know what makes a good application and will be able to advise you as to what should be included in your CV to help you stand out for the role.

Time saving

Applying for jobs can be very time consuming. it can take hours to complete a single application form so applying for multiple jobs can be a very arduous task and something that no teacher has the time to do! Using a trusted recruitment consultant, can take away that wasted time. It is their job to understand what you are looking for in a job and what each client of their clients want in an applicant and then put the two together. Your recruitment consultant will do all of the leg work for you.

Interview prep and coaching 

If your consultant secures you an interview, they will also help you prep for your interview. They’ll be able to give you an insight into the institute and what you can expect from the interview. 


It can be an uncomfortable process negotiating pay with your potential employer. But if you secure a position through a recruitment agency, your recruitment consultant will take care of all the negotiations for you. They’ll work to get the best possible salary as well as any other available benefits.
