Many of our consultants service the areas that they live and have an excellent understanding of the local area, while others have teaching backgrounds giving them insider knowledge on just what schools are looking for.
We see ourselves as an extension of your school. For us it's not just about supplying you with great teachers, it's about supporting your school in other ways too. Whether that be by providing an extra pair of hands at Sports Day or running workshops on interview techniques and CV writing.
Each of our schools has the opportunity to join the Smile Rewards Club which offers schools the chance to earn rewards when they book their supply through us.
Getting to know you is our business and we take that very seriously. We spend time with each school that we work with to understand exactly what they are looking for, not just initially but throughout the process with regular meetings and visits to suit you.
We recruit for all roles within schools and nurseries including teachers, teaching assistants, senior leaders and support staff such as cleaners and exam invigilators. This means that you can rely on us to fulfil all of your recruitment needs, making the recruitment process as simple and stress-free as possible.
As one of our partner schools you can benefit from a range of training opportunities for both your staff and your students. We offer a number of free workshops for students covering a variety of different topics including CV writing, interview techniques and job searching. For schools and teachers we can offer discounted rates on a plethora of training courses through our training partner Services for Education.
