Teaching Professionals - Why Use An Agency To Help You Find Work?

Pexels Fauxels 3184465

With September around the corner, you may be looking to secure your ideal placement in a school local to you.

With many schools opting to use agencies as a way of sourcing the right candidate for their vacancies, there are many benefits to you of using a recruitment agency to help find your perfect role in a school.

They are free to register with

By law, Employment agencies should not be charging anyone for work-finding services. Therefore, you will not have to pay a recruitment agency to help you find work in a school.

Provide a tailored job search

Good recruiters spend time getting to know their candidates requirements including their preferred jobs, locations and future aspirations to name a few things.

If you have registered with a good Consultant who has well established relationships with their schools, and knows their geographical area, there is a much better chance that they will be able to find the right role for you

Some schools only advertise through a recruitment agency

Yes, a lot of schools will have a vacancies page on their website – but that does not mean those are the only vacancies available within their school. Schools approach agencies when they need to fill a position very quickly and efficiently. Going directly to a recruitment agency saves the school valuable time and money. Why not leave the recruitment process to the experts.

Guidance and support from Consultants who specialise in YOUR industry

A good recruitment agency already knows what schools are looking for, which goes beyond the job description posted online. Recruitment Consultants can help ensure your CV is professional and structured in a way that appeals to Head Teachers, along with preparing you with all the tools needed before the interview – whether it be a virtual or face to face interview.

Additionally, if you have a Recruitment Consultant who is good at their job, they will support you with any questions or concerns you may have from the moment you register with the agency, to securing a role and post-placement.

Ability to reach more schools in a shorter period of time

Searching for a new job can be tedious, we’ve all been there. Having to fill out multiple applications and only hearing back from a fraction of the applications you made – it’s a tough to pill to swallow! Recruitment agencies have already established relationships with schools, and are able to speak to Hiring Managers on your behalf, as well as sending your profile to a large number of schools.

More choice on roles

You may know exactly the type of role you are looking for, or you may be at the beginning of your career and want to keep your options open. Recruitment agencies allow you to explore your options by prompting you with career advice and guidance throughout the registration process.

I hope this has been helpful. If you are seeking a job in a school for the new academic year, and are unsure of where to start, please give us a call on 0203 771 1138 or send us an email at
