Laura talks about her career at Flourish Education 

Flourish Education have provided schools across the West Midlands with teachers, teaching assistants, cover supervisors and other support staff for permanent, long term and day-to-day positions since year 2010. Grant and Louise  wanted to focus on the service they could provide from the start, rather than concentrate on the bottom line.

When I first met with Louise and Grant at Flourish Education I didn't really know what to expect but I loved the ethos of the company immediately. Everyone at Flourish Education believes that we're a competitive teacher agency, built to make the recruitment process more convenient and transparent. We all strive hard to give schools the best candidates and go that extra mile to give something back.

Education Recruiter - Laura

Q1. What’s your story/background?

I started my career recruitment in 2014 working for a large generalist recruitment business in Birmingham. After 3.5 years, primarily working as an industrial consultant, I wanted a change in sector and a new challenge. 

Q2. What motivates you and why?

Doing a great job! I am really passionate about delivering a high level of service to my clients and candidates. Reputation is everything in recruitment and getting excellent feedback from clients and candidates is an great motivator.

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

I love working in a busy office where you feel like part of the family and I am looking forward to the years to come!

Q4. How can you help candidates find a job?

Having worked in recruitment for a number of years I know what clients are looking for in an excellent candidate. I have also learned to really listen to my candidates so I completely understand what they are looking for and hopefully help them find their perfect role.

Q5. What area and roles do you specialise in?

I specialise in recruiting in Primary Education. I recruit anything from Head Teachers to School Janitors and anything in between.

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

Keep an open mind and don’t be scared to try a new challenge!

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

I love being outdoors and cycling is a big part of my life, I recently completed the London – Brighton Charity bike ride to raise money for Cancer Research. I am also a little bookworm so when I am not outside I am probably hiding away with a good novel!
