we are


Early bird catches the worm

We are a team of 130 specialist recruitment consultants working across 19 branches. We're up and ready for action well before the school bells rings. Throw normal working rules out of the window as everything we do revolves around the academic calendar including shifts (between 7am and 6pm) and annual leave. If you want to guarantee a big summer holiday or ample family time off during the festive season you’re on to a real winner.

Whether you are an experienced consultant, resourcer or manager, or maybe just starting out in the recruitment industry, be prepared to instantly talk the same language as our clients and candidates. We live and breathe education. 

Every year we get together and share in our successes. We share the financial results, have external speakers, presentations and of course a dinner and party afterwards!

our service is in demand

We've worked with over 3,900 schools. Client schools across the nation are on the hunt for qualified temp and perm teachers. Admin and teacher support staff are also a priority for many schools.

A* attitude and attention to detail

Whether you’re working on a temp or perm desk in primary, secondary or SEN, it’s down to you to find top class teachers.  You’ll need to ensure that client schools, and their pupils, receive the expertise they demand once those school gates open.

Despite the fast-paced, target-driven environment, you can’t take your eye off the ball. Attention to detail is everything. Because child safety is at the heart of what we do, all of our team members are DBS checked and you’ll work closely with our head office to ensure all candidates meet strict requirements. If you’re meticulous and thorough, you’ll get a gold star.

Top of the class

We always go over and above. It’s not just about listening to what your schools have to say, it’s about having a voice within the education sector. In fact, our Strategic Operations Director is the elected Chair of REC (The Recruitment & Employment Confederation).

We know our stuff and this is reflected in everything we do, from events to press coverage. You’ll need to be well versed in industry hot topics and be able to hold conversations with head teachers and industry influencers.

Child’s play

Of course it’s hard work but expect to leave your desk feeling that you’ve made a real difference. It’s not a load of jargon; we make positive changes to the lives of our pupils.  Our annual SEN Sports Day is a key event in the Mancunian diary and we awarded a staggering £30,000 to three schools in 2015 after crowning them winners of our Raising Standards Awards.

All three schools walked away with a cheque for £10,000, designed to raise standards within their school.
