How to find the best education recruitment agency

With so many education recruitment agencies out there to choose from, it’s difficult to know which one to use. If you want to build your successful career using only the best agency, then here are some tips on what to look for…

Great jobs available

If you are searching for a job using an education recruitment agency, they need to have jobs that excite and interest you. All agencies vary in the roles they offer, so make sure they have what you are looking for. At ABC Teachers, we offer a range of roles from teachers, teaching assistants, cover supervisors, SEND support roles and more, whereas some agencies specialise only in certain areas, for example, in SEND.

Consultants will listen to you and the roles you want

When you first get in contact with an agency, they’ll talk to you about your qualifications and experience, but most importantly they will want to know where you want to go next. You might be at the start of your career, part way through or near the end – wherever you are you'll want your next role to be the right challenge for you. Your consultant will look at all the roles available from part-time, full-time, day-to-day supply, and short or long-term contracts, they’ll use their knowledge and experience to find the job best for you.

School knowledge

There is no one better than consultants to tell you everything you need to know about the school your prospective role is in. They'll tell you about the people, location, vision and ethos. They'll also know the logistical specifics, like what time they start, and finish and how to get there. All to make sure it's right for you.

5-star recommendations

The best agencies come recommended for a reason. So, if you haven’t been recommended an agency by family or friends, look at Google reviews to find out what people really think.

At ABC Teachers, we’re always here to support you and your career. Contact your local branch for help, advice and guidance with your job search.
