8 Reasons Why You Should Use An Education Recruiter To Find Your Next Teaching Job

Finding the right teaching or school support job can be a stressful and difficult task. As educators that have been in your shoes, we want to let you know why using an education recruiter is your best bet to find a great school placement.

There are several benefits of using an education recruiter to find a new teaching or school support job, including:

An education recruiter has access to a wider range of job opportunities:

As education recruiters we often have access to job openings that are not advertised publicly. We have relationships with schools and educational institutions and are informed of job openings that may not be advertised elsewhere. This means that working with an education recruiter can give you access to a wider range of job opportunities.

Expertise and guidance:

We have first-hand expertise in the education sector and can you with provide guidance on the job search process. Additionally, we can help you with your CV, cover letter, and interview preparation.

Huge time-saving by working with an education recruiter:

Searching for a job can be time-consuming and stressful. Working with an education recruiter will save you time and effort by allowing you to focus on your current job or other responsibilities while they do the legwork of finding job opportunities that match your qualifications and preferences.

A streamlined application process:

If there are multiple open positions at a school, we can submit your application for each position in one fell swoop. This saves time and effort on both sides of the hiring process.


More efficient communication:

As we work directly with schools, we can relay messages between applicants and employers much more efficiently than you can do on their own without an intermediary involved in the process from start to finish.

Support throughout the entire application process:

Some jobs require multiple rounds of interviews before being offered the position. This can be stressful if you don’t know what to expect or how to prepare yourself properly beforehand. An education recruiter will provide guidance throughout the entire process, including preparing you for each stage of the interview process, helping you prepare for questions and providing interview tips that will ensure your success.


If you are currently employed and looking for a new job, using an education recruiter can help you maintain confidentiality. We will handle the initial communication with potential employers and ensure that your job search is kept confidential.


Education recruiters have extensive networks within the education sector and can introduce you to potential employers. This can help you build your professional network and increase your chances of finding a job that aligns with your career goals.

Overall, using an education recruiter can be a valuable resource for anyone looking for a teaching or school support job. They can provide access to job opportunities, guidance, time-saving, confidentiality, and networking opportunities.
