Education recruitment agencies are being more and more commonly used by schools recruiting staff. There are several reasons for this, the main one being the cost. However, what many do not realise is that there are even more benefits to outsourcing your recruitment needs, which will be discussed further in this blog.
1. Saving you time and resources
A schools primary focus should always be on education. You may lack the time to be able to screen potential candidates, which can often lead to a reduction in the quality of staff. Our experienced recruiters and resourcers are equipped in spotting and identifying quality candidates who are perfect for you.
With the lack of time, mistakes can be made which can have a direct impact on the learning and development of children. Our staff ensure the best possible candidates are placed in your school, always prioritising quality and commitment.
2. Precise Compliance
REC Audited is the most comprehensive regulatory audit of its kind, covering compliance as well as the REC Code of Professional Practice.
With safety at the forefront of what we do, we are proud to be members of the Recruitment Employment Confederation (REC) and be awarded the gold standard in recruitment compliance, for going above and beyond agency standards within Education Recruitment.
Our precise vetting process ensures that all necessary and relevant criteria are met before a candidate is able to start work. This reduces the pressure on schools.
3. Candidates are more commonly using recruitment agencies to find work
With more candidates than ever before searching for roles through recruitment agencies, now is the perfect time to outsource your recruitment. Gone are the days of applying to a role through the school website or vacancies page. Using an agency is a far quicker, easier process, with agencies already having a range of roles available.
With extensive knowledge of schools in their area, our recruiters are able to consult with you and listen to your specific needs, ensuring that a relevant and qualified candidate is presented to you. Once again, this reduces the pressure and risk of making a wrong decision.
Our roles are always on a temp-to-perm basis. As a school, there are numerous advantages to this. Most importantly, you are able to see and trial the candidate first-hand. This means that you are not making a permanent commitment, in case you do not consider the candidate suitable for your role.
Overall, now is the perfect time to work with a recruitment agency and outsource your recruitment needs. Firstly, you save time, money and resources, allowing you to place all your focus in the learning and development of children. Our compliance checks are thorough, ensuring candidates are fully vetted before working in your school. Our temp-to-perm practice means that you do not have to commit to a candidate if they’re not the right fit for your school. Finally, many candidates are using recruitment agencies like ours to find work. Therefore, if you aren’t outsourcing your recruitment, you may be missing out on quality candidates!
