Who we are

Although based in Manchester & London. Castles Education provide expert school improvement services alongside teacher recruitment across the UK.  We are different to the majority of Teaching Recruitment Agencies as our core team is made up entirely of school senior leaders. Therefore, we understand the importance of matching the right candidates to your vacancies. Our extensive knowledge allows us to source, prepare & place the right professionals into vacant positions. We pride ourselves on being an industry-leading education recruiter offering a ‘gold standard’ level of service.

Who are our candidates?

Our talent pool includes NQT’s, experienced teachers and senior leaders looking for various posts across the industry in a number of locations. Candidates come to us from a variety of sources and for many different reasons.

One of our strongest and most exciting departments handles the placement of high calibre graduates into teaching assistant and support staff roles.

Think outside the box!

We are all aware of recruitment issues inside education. Strategic staff planning is what we do best. Allow us to meet with you, listen to your curriculum plans and prepare a short, medium and long-term strategy to address all your needs. Looking ahead is critical to success and school improvement. Few schools find themselves in a position where staffing is static. Teaching is becoming a transient profession and recognising patterns of staff turnover and career advancement is essential to a stable staff body.

What are the costs?

We pride ourselves on providing value for money in an extremely competitive sector. Our standard commission rate is 20% of the gross salary offered. However, it is our aim to become partners with education institutions and we are happy to negotiate reduced commission rates for schools who wish Castles to become either a preferred or a sole supplier. We have collaborated with a number of schools and academy chains who use us to source all their vacant positions from Head teacher and Senior Leadership roles to teachers, support staff and learning support positions.

Why use Castles?

By engaging Castles to handle your recruitment issues you are assured of a professional and confidential service. We have worked in schools and understand the expense and human resource time incurred recruiting expert members of staff. We want to assist so you can spend valuable time leading your schools and improving the standards of teaching and learning.
