10 Good Reasons

1. Quality of Teaching Staff
We provide teachers who support the development of your pupils and the aims of your school. We recruit teachers with significant UK classroom experience as well as overseas trained teachers who are eligible for Qualified Teacher Status in the UK. We link our interviewing and assessment to the priorities outlined in the Ofsted Inspection Framework to ensure we only recruit high-quality classroom practitioners.

2. Large Candidate Pool
As one of the UK’s largest education staffing agencies, we have an active database of experienced teachers currently working for us in UK schools and looking for new opportunities. In addition, we have a well-established, wide-reaching recruitment infrastructure in five countries providing a high-quality ‘search and match’ capability to help you fill your permanent positions.

3. Rigorous Safeguarding Processes
We are fully committed to the UK DfE statutory guidance for schools ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (April 2014). All of our workers have a face-to-face interview with a consultant and undergo a comprehensive checking and vetting service to ensure safeguarding standards are met and to minimise risk to your pupils. Full documentary evidence of these checks is provided.

4. Managed Recruitment Service
We provide a full, managed recruitment service to cover all your needs, including school branded advertising in the TES and the Guardian. This increases the chances of finding the right candidates for your vacancies, reduces the amount of time required to fill vacancies and reduces the cost and administration of recruitment.

5. Timely Staffing Solutions
With over 5,000 teachers working in the UK and an ongoing recruitment cycle throughout the year from our international offices, we can provide you with quality staff whenever your need arises. From advanced permanent recruitment to last-minute vacancies, we work to provide the best staffing solutions within the time frame that suits you.

6. Support & Training
All of our teachers are supported by our in-house CPD and Teacher Services teams. Our
CPD team provides professional development courses to ensure our teachers are up to date on curriculum developments and classroom strategies. Our Teacher Services team supports the transition of teachers in and out of the UK and provides social networking events and pastoral care.

7. Federation Membership
We are committed to working with the leading international school federations and we provide special discounts and services to federation members. We are active members of BSME, COBIS, ECIS and FOBISIA.

8. Free Hosted Interview Space in the UK
With over 30 branches across the UK, including our prestigious head office in the heart of Central London, we are able to provide free interview space and break-out rooms for clients conducting local interviews of our candidates, including dedicated recruitment weekends and information seminars.

9. International Recruitment Offices
We have permanent consultants in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland and we are the market leader in recruiting overseas trained teachers to work in UK schools. They are by nature flexible, adaptable and resilient teachers who are comfortable teaching in new environments and are well suited to international schools.

10. Market-Leading Agency
We are the UK’s leading provider of staffing and supply services to schools, with multiple awards and accreditations designed to give you confidence in our ability to deliver a safe and effective service.

We are multiple winners of The Recruiter Award for Excellence (Best Temporary Agency; Best Candidate Care; Best Recruitment Marketing Campaign); we are ISO9001 accredited for our recruitment and client care processes; we hold the Investors in People accreditation for our training and development and we are audited members of the UK Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) which governs our professional code of conduct.
