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 DFE ‘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.
Phone calls, networking, targeted emails, postcards and SMS advertising your vacancies to our nationwide database of over 80,000 candidates.
We can quickly promote your vacancy to our database of 80,000 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.
We avoid a 'one size fits all' approach by making sure that your recruitment strategy is tailored to both the role and your School or Trust. 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.

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.

“Hays were committed to support our school in finding the very best of candidates that were suited to our fast paced ethos and values of the school. The Hays team initially visited our school and met our staff and students so that they had a solid understanding of what we were trying to achieve. This initial investment was invaluable as The Hays team had a good understanding of what we wanted and needed in our school.
“I have come to absolutely trust Mike and respect his integrity, advice and work ethic. Furthermore, as the ‘point of contact’ for us for Hays, he is an excellent ambassador for the organisation. The quality of the relationship that we have established with Hays, as a result of Mike’s positive engagement is such that I have been and would continue to be unreserved in my recommendation of Hays recruitment services to schools.
“I have worked with Hays, and more specifically Michael Sherwin for some years now across two schools in two different counties. I have always found Mike to be proactive and supportive in advance of and throughout the recruitment process. He has a good sense of what we are looking for and is persistent about finding us the right candidates. Mike is always on the other end of the phone – whatever the time. This is hugely reassuring and helpful, particularly during the high pressure recruitment weeks around resignation deadline dates. Recruitment candidates also report that they feel well supported, and their contact with Mike reflects positively on the school, leading to a high success rate for recruitment.
“The Hays team have offered Warwick Secondary trainees a wealth of CPD opportunities during the training year, which entirely complement the work done by academics in the department and mentors out in schools. The mock interviews have been incredibly successful, and always come out positively in the end of course reviews. Hays’ deep and extensive knowledge of the ITE sector means they’re able to offer the right advice to all trainees
“Hays have revolutionised our recruitment procedures. We were impressed by the choice presented to us by the size of the fields sourced by Hays and the quality of professionals each field brought. With the recruitment challenges facing all education, this was a new and exciting and we are facing next year with greater optimism. We will certainly continue to work with Hays and recommend them to you.
“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.
“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.
“Hays are a professional partner with whom we have a positive and effective relationship. Working with Hays saves the school significant work and time, whilst sourcing a range and quality of candidates. Working with Hays gives us the reassurance that process, and outcome will be smoothly and efficiently managed.
“By using the recruitment expertise of Hays, we have been rewarded with an array of high quality candidates to fill numerous teaching posts including many shortage subjects as well as a couple of senior leadership appointments over the last couple of years.
“Working with Hays as our Recruitment Partner really takes the stress out of the process of recruiting teachers. We have successfully appointed on every occasion and without feeling that we are settling for second best.
“Working with Hays has been a pleasure with them providing great lines of communication and quality advice. Our relationship with Hays has also opened additional opportunities for our students and staff that we are most grateful of
“Through our partnership with Hays, we have been able to recruit some exceptional teachers to the Trust. We have successfully welcomed colleagues through the highly successful partnership we have with Hays; and our working partnership continues from strength to strength
“I decided to work with Hays for several reasons. First, I like the people I work with, who are pleasant, knowledgeable, professional and always do as they promise. They also pay close attention to understanding their clients so that they introduce candidates who are likely to be of interest to the school, rather than being inundated with many clearly unsuitable staff. This approach has enabled me to recruit many quality staff through Hays over the past few years, often at very reasonable rates compared with external advertising and recruitment. Considering this, I would recommend any school or Headteacher to speak with Hays about their services.
“We were struggling to attract quality fields for interviews and needed to do something different from what we had always done. By working with Hays we have seen better quality candidates matching the needs of our school. Recruitment is essential to school improvement and Hays gives you the edge
“Effective staff recruitment is of course of huge importance for all of our schools. Since using Hays, I have been impressed with their knowledge of the sector, their willingness to accommodate our particular requirements and their flexibility.
“Our contact at Hays is superb and the service we have had is second to none. Communication is very strong so we are always kept up to date about how recruitment is proceeding and nothing ever seems to be too much trouble. With their help, we have filled several key posts with very high quality staff. I have full confidence in Hays and recommend them without hesitation
