Flexible, tailored solutions

We can work in the way that best supports our clients’ needs: whether that’s on an agile, ad hoc basis to overcome specific short term hiring challenges; or on a preferred/sole supplier basis where we work as an integral partner to MATs on an ongoing basis, adding value through developing a deep, local understanding of each academy.

Our range of solutions, combined with our national coverage and local presence, means that we can offer complete flexibility at every stage of the recruitment process.

We ensure the onboarding of new teachers is as smooth as can be, providing everything from compliance and reference checking, through to training and CPD.

We help MATs that need to recruit large numbers of teachers and support staff, particularly within a short timescale, allowing them to access the high-quality talent they need, enhancing their ability to directly recruit permanent hires, without relying on agency support.

We can deliver an end-to-end recruitment process, or provide additional capacity at times of peak demand.
