I recently joined Smile Education to open their Peterborough Office. My decision to join Smile was the easiest career decision I have taken so far. Reason being is we share the same vision and core values; most notably to work in partnership with schools in our local area by focusing on working with the local community and offering a family friendly approach and workplace. Remembering to treat people like people and having the highest standards in everything we do. I found this unique and refreshing and believe me I am in a good position to comment, as I have worked in Education recruitment for nearly a decade in which my journey has taken me to work for a number of teaching agencies and I have found Smile to be unique!

Smile Education, offer a uniquely happy and nurturing environment where team success is just as important as individual success. This helps ensure our team is always supporting each other and pulling in the same direction which creates a supportive and fun environment where our consultants and resourcers flourish and go onto achieve their milestones.  We encourage all our staff to be creative and bring their own personality to their desk, we never look to suffocate our people’s personality and creativity.   

Education to me is a fundamental tool in offering kids the opportunity to live their dreams by securing their dream careers and adding value to the community and wider society. Therefore, the team and I, in Peterborough are passionate about ensuring we only supply our schools with passionate, engaged and fully compliant practitioners who view teaching as their vocation not just a job. I recently became a school Governor for a local Primary School, this has given me a better understanding of the challenges facing schools when recruiting and a new appreciation of just how difficult this is with budget restraints, a teacher shortage and rising agency costs. It also once again reinforced to me how challenging a job teaching is and that our Smiles teachers deserve both reflective pay for the vital role they do and that their achievements should be recognised. We therefore are proud to offer all our candidates reflective and highly competitive pay and monthly/termly and yearly teacher parties and award evenings to show just how much we appreciate our candidates.

I am looking forward to supporting our schools, candidates and community throughout my journey with Smile and hope that many people will come and share this experience with me.
