FQT & QTS Recruitment

Recruiting Qualified Teachers

As an industry leading provider of bespoke recruitment solutions to the education sector, Castles Education can provide you with access to a pool of talented qualified teachers with a subject knowledge spanning the national curriculum. We are different to most Teaching Recruitment Agencies as our core team consists entirely of school senior leaders and former teachers. This has provided us with an extensive knowledge which allows us to source and place the right candidates in the right vacancies.

We realise that gifted teachers can be hard to find, but thankfully help is at hand. The lack of new teachers coming up through the system, combined with the number of older teachers taking early retirement, means that qualified teachers are in high demand. Through enlisting our services, we can assist you in filling your vacancies across all subject areas. We have a proven track record of supplying schools, academies, sixth form colleges and further education institutions with enthusiastic, talented and professional teachers who demonstrate a passion for their subject and a genuine desire to improve the lives of the young people they teach.

Due to our in-depth knowledge of education, we are aware of the recruitment issues the industry faces. We understand that teaching is increasingly becoming a transient profession and firmly believe that recognising patterns of staff turnover and career advancement is essential to establishing a stable staff body. Through adopting a proactive approach, we can ensure that your future recruitment needs and curriculum plans are met.

Furthermore, we never view the recruitment process as a numbers game by putting forward as many candidates as we can to fill a vacancy. We take a considered approach by carefully selecting the right candidates from our extensive pool of talent for the right positions. We also maintain close links with the schools we deal with and this provides us with a clear picture of their specific requirements and the type of candidate that would fit perfectly into that culture.

This kind of approach has served us well and has cemented our position as an industry-leading education recruiter offering a ‘gold standard’ level of service. It has also seen us become the chosen supplier of qualified teachers to schools throughout the UK at both GCSE and A-Level. Although we have offices in London and Manchester, our talent pool includes gifted teachers looking for various posts across the industry in locations throughout the country.

Some may be looking for the next step in their career while others may be seeking relocation or a change of direction and a new focus. Whatever their objectives, if we recommend a candidate to you, it is because we are convinced that they are going to feel at home in your school and make a positive impact in their new role.

What positions do we recruit for?

  • Early Years
  • Primary Schools
  • Secondary Schools
  • Academies
  • Further Education

Our candidates

Naturally, all of our qualified teachers are DBS compliant and have several years’ experience gained within a classroom environment. All of our applicants undergo a rigorous screening and selection process handled by senior school leaders and former teachers and we only introduce individuals who match the qualifications, attributes, skills sets and level of experience you demand. Our objective is to ensure that every applicant enjoys a fulfilling career in the positions we place them in, so that they in turn inspire the children they teach.

What are the costs?

We pride ourselves on providing the highest levels of service and value for money in an increasingly competitive market. Typically, we charge 20% commission as a standard rate of the gross salary offered. However, we are happy to negotiate a reduced rate of commission for schools that choose Castles Education as a preferred or sole supplier of qualified teachers. Our aim is to forge a lasting partnership with your school which allows you to tap into our growing pool of talent for many years to come.

Why use Castles Education?

By enlisting us to handle your recruitment needs, you are assured of receiving a simple streamlined service which saves you time and increases your chances of successfully finding the best applicants. It can be all too easy to miss applications from strong candidates if you are too busy with the day-to-day running of your school and unable to devote enough time and attention as you would like to the recruitment process. Furthermore, because we go to such great lengths to find the right school for our qualified teachers, candidates know that this bolsters their chances of a successful application. As a result of this, we currently have more gifted teachers than ever registering with us to find the best jobs out there.
