Identifying and hiring the right candidates for permanent MPS, TLR and support staff vacancies is vital to the morale and achievement of any school. Through a combination of online and offline marketing & the latest recruitment technologies Hays has delivered an exceptional 96% first time fill rate in the schools that we partner with nationwide.
We currently work with over 200 schools, colleges and academies nationwide to recruit for their permanent MPS, TLR and support staff vacancies.
Working on an exclusive basis we identify the unique qualities of your institution and develop a bespoke recruitment campaign to promote your vacancies to the optimum target audience.
Our aim is to build long-term partnerships with our client schools, some of whom we’ve worked with for over six years. More than 80% of our customers renew their partnership each year, using Hays as their sole supplier of new staff.
We help our clients recruit in the following areas:
We can tailor our service to meet the requirements of individual clients, groups, independent or LA funded schools as well as residential and day schools. We have the ability to draw upon our expertise from within Hays Health & Social Care sector to provide an integrated recruitment service incorporating speech & language therapists, PMLD practitioners, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nurses, and care workers.
Staffing within special schools can also present challenges that mainstream schools do not face. A Permanent Recruitment Partnership is an efficient and effective way to ensure that you recruit the highest quality candidates taking in to account the uniqueness of your setting. Hays has a proven track record of supporting a diverse range of schools – all of whom require an individual service.

A local expert who facilitates the entire recruitment process. From advertising planning to pre-screening candidates and increasing the number of completed applications you receive.
Our campaigns are particularly good for sourcing in-demand talent – the highly sought after skills that are all too rare. These candidates need to be impressed if they’re to move jobs and will want to know all about a potential employer before they apply. Many of these individuals will be ‘passive’ job seekers and only interested in the perfect role.
This is simply the most important element of what we do, and we do it well. We know what works, what doesn’t work and we build our campaigns around that. Our expertise is proven in always finding the right candidate for the right job.
What is it that makes your organisation an employer of choice? What is it that makes it different, more attractive to potential recruits? Employers increasingly understand the need to define their employer brand and EVP (employee value proposition) if they’re to hire the best talent. Our campaigns complement these approaches and in many cases, help lead them.
We ensure the safety of everyone involved with our stringent vetting processes in line with DCSF ‘Safer Recruitment’ guidelines, this is all done prior to interview.
Our media buying reach allows Hays to pass on market-leading discounts to clients. There are few media networks or recruitment agencies with the same partnerships we’ve developed over many years.
There is lots of noise in the marketing space about using different advertising channels and it’s no different in recruitment marketing. We only utilise the most appropriate channels for our campaigns and we ensure they can all be integrated into a cohesive and engaging approach.
Mailshots, postcards, targeted emails and mobile phone video Mavcasts, advertising your vacancies to our nationwide database of over 20,000 candidates.
We can quickly promote your vacancy to our database of 20,000 active candidates. Helping to quickly source the right individuals.
A key benefit of our campaigns is being able to track and report, with a complete statistical analysis for every position. This allows us to optimise results, identify where applicants saw the vacancy advertised and maximise your return on investment.
We use Responsive Web Design as a standard part of our approach which means that all recruitment microsites are fully accessible regardless of device used. There is no additional cost for this and our efficient workflow already incorporates cross-browser and cross-device testing, so it doesn’t slow down our delivery.
We avoid a 'one size fits all' approach by making sure that your recruitment strategy is tailored to both the role and your institution. Our expert teams remove the administrative burden of your recruitment whist leaving you in control of the decision making process, delivering affordable and effective permanent recruitment solutions where you need them most.

Each campaign is monitored regularly for the duration it is live, allowing us to make changes and enhance if necessary to help further improve SEO.
All of our traffic drivers are tracked using our bespoke code within our sites. This enables us to monitor how each channel is performing, giving us the ability to offer advice on the successes of a campaign and where it could be improved. With live reporting, we can update at any point during the campaign lifecycle, and track applications from job boards.
Through our popular social media channels, such as @hayseducationuk and our Facebook page we’re able to share and promote campaigns to a larger audience, attracting passive candidates. Our growing Google+ presence is also useful to improve SEO, and ultimately drive more traffic to recruitment sites.

You can find a selection of the sites we’ve created for our partner schools, colleges and academies below.
“Hays have done a lot to promote the School outside the normal traditional method of advertising in the Times Education Supplement. This has included, for example, attending recruitment fairs and organising recruitment days at the School. We are excited about the appointments we made and confident that the quality of teaching and learning will continue to improve. I am really impressed that by the end of March we are almost fully staffed for September, which is the earliest this has ever happened.
“Willowgarth will be fully staffed from September 2009, for each of the vacancies we have had the opportunity to select from a field of appropriately qualified and viable candidates.
Additionally, but just as importantly, the administration of the process has moved from the school to the Hays Team to release Willowgarth staff to concentrate on the qualitative component of selecting the best candidate without having to deal with the associated bureaucratic and time consuming paperwork.
“Working with Hays we have recruited staff to a range of permanent positions from Assistant Head Teacher to Teaching Assistants…the quality of our staff appointments has risen to a consistently high standard. This has had positive impact on all aspects of our school life.
The service provided by Hays also reduces the admin burden on the school office related to staff appointments and Hays are able to give time, attention and individual interest to potential candidates that a school office is often unable to offer. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
“Park View Business and Enterprise school have now worked in partnership with Hays over the past 3 years with regards to recruitment of staff both permanent and temporary, Teachers and Teaching Assistants. I have found them at all times to be approachable, professional and responsive to the needs of the school. I would highly recommend them to you.
“This arrangement has allowed the school to concentrate on its core purpose, whilst Hays have managed the recruitment process from start to finish. This has taken a significant amount of pressure away from the school. The arrangement is highly effective, conducted in a professional manner and is a model worthy of replication in schools in similar circumstances to our own.
