Education Recruitment

Both the Further and Higher Education sectors are critical players in the ever-important skills agenda and the UK’s subsequent economic success.  

Changes in national policy, international trends and the growing relationships between employers and Institutions at all levels means that demand is ever shifting and our clients often seek to appoint candidates from other jurisdictions sectors. Coupled with the evolving nature of students as consumers and the requirement of commercial student attraction strategies, there has never been a better time to consider talent in a broader context.

“I am so grateful that Mary was part of my journey to find a new career path. She was excellent; professional, supportive and made me feel important. When a recruitment consultant calls you before and after your interview but then takes it one step further and stays in contact through the early days of your new post; that for me is special service."
