Types of Education Recruitment We Offer

For any school, recruitment is a crucial part of developing and maintaining effective teaching teams. Employers in all sectors get swamped with CV’s from eager candidates without the relevant skills required and often CV’s get dumped in a pile, unless every requirement of the job is ticked. Schools often lack the time and/or the experience to effectively screen candidates. A good recruitment strategy will dramatically cut down the wastage of time and money, which would have incurred for extensive training and development of unqualified resources.

We can help meet your school's strategic recruitment goals and objectives by managing the process of sourcing, screening, shortlisting and selecting the right candidates for your required teaching positions. We have found that Headteachers and Business Managers enjoy the reduced administration costs and time wasted when working in partnership with us. 

Flourish Education can supply staff across all key stages and subject areas. 

We offer the following types of recruitment for education:

  • Day to Day Supply
  • Long Term Supply 
  • Temporary to Permanent Recruitment
  • Permanent Recruitment 

Day to Day Supply 

Every day Flourish Education staff receive morning requests from schools for supply teachers and teaching assistants to cover short term absence – anything from one or two days for sickness to one or two weeks. For our teachers who do not wish to commit to a long term teaching position, prefer a variety of different schools or simply don’t want to work every day, day to day supply teaching is an ideal option.

Long Term Supply 

Schools always need qualified teachers and teaching assistants to cover unfilled vacancies, maternity leave or long term absences. Such posts can last anywhere between six weeks to a whole academic year. As experienced recruiters, we're well equipped to identify worthwhile recruits and supply the best possible candidates.

Temporary to Permanent 

Many schools now like to trial a teacher or teaching assistant on supply first which is beneficial for everyone; the school does not waste valuable resources and time making a bad recruitment decision and the teacher knows after a few weeks if the school and position is what they're looking for.

Permanent Recruitment

Flourish Education can assist you to fill your permanent teaching and non-teaching vacancies or Senior Leadership positions. Our education recruitment consultants have a deep knowledge of the schools in the areas they cover and know what works with each school. 

Non-teaching staff

We also recruit for temporary and permanent administrators, lunchtime supervisors, caretakers and cover supervisors across the West Midlands.
