Why Work with Flourish?


Flourish Education is an established education recruitment agency based in Northfield, Birmingham

We've been supplying teachers in the West Midlands, Coventry, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire since 2010. We specialise in placing Primary Teachers, Secondary Teachers, SEND Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Learning Mentors, and support staff to the education sector. 

Flourish Education take compliance and safeguarding extremely seriously, and as APSCo Compliance+ accreditation, we go that extra step to ensure any candidate we place in your school has passed our rigorous processes. As APSCO members, we ensure that our policies and procedures are in agreement with the current legislation and ethical expectations.


The goal of Flourish Education is to guide you in every step of the recruitment process. Our team consists of experts with professional recruitment experience in the education sector, individuals with classroom based experience and strong business administrators. Each of our education recruitment consultants has their own speciality. We’ll provide a consultant with expert knowledge in the field and location where your school is based. Your consultant will provide all of the assistance and advice you’ll need. They’ll visit your school as frequent as possible to learn more about your school and your school’s needs. In that way, your specific requirements will be met.

Interview with Flourish Education Sales Director, Grant Taylor

We choose to be a bit different

From going the extra mile with our compliance and customer service, to not doing morning sales calls and being transparent in our pricing structure - we want to be better than the rest.

  • Our staff are keen to build long-lasting relationship with their clients and are always on hand to speak to you. We have a strong track record with staff retention too, and many of our consultants have been with the business over a year. This means they are focussed on serving those client relationships with excellent customer service.

  • To ensure your roles are filled even at the last minute, the team are contactable 7 days per week - and especially outside of school hours. Schools can rest assured their dedicated consultant is always at the end of the phone and will get a quick response when you need us most.

  • We believe that success is achieved faster by working together. Our consultants work as a team to ensure vacancies are filled by pooling our available candidates.  This helps us fill vacancies faster and more efficiently.

We always care for our clients, that’s why Flourish Education is determined to provide for every school’s specific needs.
