Our new style of working since COVID-19 means that there is a balance between at home and office-based working and IT equipment will be provided to support both.

This role involves making a high volume of sales and business development calls to schools across your local region; resourcing and recruiting quality teachers and carrying out interviews.

The role also requires excellent communication skills as recruitment consultants are also required to write their own adverts to attract candidates and marketing to showcase those candidates and their attributes to schools.
