The Benefits of Using a Recruitment Agency

For teachers, using a recruitment agency to find your first job as a newly qualified teacher (ECT) or as an experienced professional can save you time and be highly beneficial for you. Teaching can be a highly competitive career, so working with a recruitment agency can help you land the best position for you. 

Here are some of the main benefits of using a recruitment agency as a teacher:

  • Hear about the latest vacancies first. Recruitment agencies may have access to new positions before they are opened up to others. Staying in touch with your recruiter can pay off.
  • Get a position at some of the best schools in the area. Teaching posts at leading schools can be hard to come by. You stand a better chance of hearing about them by signing up to a specialist recruitment agency – top schools are likely to choose education focused recruiters to find them the best candidates to fill their open roles.
  • Spend less time applying for teaching jobs. Recruiters will be able to help streamline the recruitment process for you and can help you to understand what the school is looking for. This can be invaluable, as all schools will have their own slightly different criteria. This kind of insight will not be available elsewhere so working with a recruiter is the best route to take.
  • Progress your career. Are you looking for the next step up on the teaching ladder? Maybe it is time for you to progress in your role and become head of department, but there are no openings in your current school. Speak to a recruiter and see what is available. This also helps to give you an idea of what you can expect in terms of salary,
  • Consider different options. Recruitment agencies can offer you different, more flexible options such as supply teaching posts.
