Education Recruiter Gemma

Q1. What’s your story/background?

I’ve always had an interest in the education sector, and spent 3 years working as a clerical assistant in a primary school office before undertaking my PGCE. I decided after this that teaching wasn’t for me, but decided to give education recruitment a go as I now had insight in to education inside and outside the classroom!

Q2. What motivates you and why?

I am motivated by knowing that I have done a good job and by the positive feedback that we receive from schools and candidates.

Q3. What do you like about working at Flourish Education?

I enjoy working with my team, helping each other get the job done as well as having a giggle in the process!

Q4. How can you help candidates find a job?

I have built strong relationships with local schools since I joined Flourish Education in 2014, so can point candidates to the types of schools that best suit their prior experience and requirements.

Q5. What area and roles do you specialise in?

I recruit Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Support Staff for Primary schools in Sandwell and Dudley.

Q6. What advice do you have for candidates in their education career?

If you are offered training on anything, take it. Every day is a school day!

Q7. What are your Interests and hobbies outside of work?

I love spending time with my little girl and taking her on fun days out, as well as meeting up with friends for a drink or two!
