This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

Teaching Personnel are looking to appoint a Branch Manager for the Wimbledon branch. Teaching Personnel is the UK’s market leading education recruitment agency and proudly offer the best and fastest opportunities for progression in the sector, developing and rewarding future leaders in a team led and community spirited culture that attracts and retains the best talent. If you are an experienced senior education recruiter looking for a management role or are already in a management role but seeking a new challenge, this role could be for you.

The role

The Wimbledon branch is a Primary specialist branch and is part of the Outer London Region of Teaching Personnel. We are ideally looking for someone to step into the role in the normal capacity (being branch based) – however given our new way of working, we would consider applicants that can manage a team ‘remotely’ and who can demonstrate the ability to do so. We would be looking for two days being office based and the rest of the week can be remote working.

The branch services Primary schools across South London and has a lot of potential for new growth. The Wimbledon branch has been well known for hitting peaks of 500 days and there are some long standing client relationships in place.

The branch has a strong team of hard working and motivated individuals working collaboratively who would excel with a manager who could provide the right development opportunities for them while leading from the front, setting an example, and growing their own primary desk.  Our Wimbledon branch has seen impressive success over the last 12 months, and we are seeking an ambitious, hard working and team orientated individual to lead the team to achieve their full potential and more growth in the next academic year. The Branch Manager role forms the backbone of our branch network and gives you the opportunity to build and grown your own business while managing a team of like-minded career driven individuals. It is a demanding but rewarding role with many layers requiring you to drive high performance through being a leader, an expert, a coach, and a mentor.

Key responsibilities include:

-          To embed and manage short term routines and practices

-          To drive long term campaigns and candidate led tactics

-          Recruit and retain the right number and mix of quality candidates

-          Lead, manage and motivate a stable team of recruitment consultants

-          Ensure productivity and create a positive working atmosphere

-          Maintain and protect welfare and wellbeing of team members

-          Adapting management style to work effectively both in an office and remote working environment

Person specification

You may already be a successful Branch Manager looking for further development and progression or a Senior Consultant who is ready to take the next step in your career. Either way successful applicants should be able to demonstrate:

-          A strong work ethic and ability to lead from the front

-          Embedded beliefs in team work, quality and continuous improvement

-          Experience of working in a recruitment role (minimum of two years)

-          Management/leadership experience within recruitment or other sectors (at least six months)

-          ‘Always Improving’ attitude with the desire to learn and improve current performance/behaviours

All new managers within Teaching Personnel attend our tpDRIVE management development programme and an up and running support programme so there will be plenty of support and learning opportunities available for the successful applicant. Teaching Personnel are a destination employer and can offer many positive career pathways for those looking for career longevity, diversity and loyalty. There is potential for successful branch managers to develop into more senior management roles, strategic development roles and even Director positions.

Salary & Benefits

A generous package is also on offer for the successful candidate, including:

  • A competitive salary
  • Performance related commission
  • Eligibility to join our management share scheme
  • Regular company-wide, regional, and personal incentive rewards
  • A host of other lifestyle benefits such as discounted gym membership and retail shopping discounts
  • Life Assurance and enrolment in a pension scheme

Applications are particularly welcomed from experienced recruiters who want to be part of a company who are looking to raise standards in professional recruitment and who wish to make a difference by partnering and supporting the education sector with the provision of quality services.
