We take pride in listening to our clients and candidates....

Active Recruitment have amazing consultants who genuinely care for all their candidates. They have an honest recruitment approach that made me feel totally appreciated and cared for. They were always considerate of my requirements during my short-term supply posts and longer-term maternity cover role. They went above and beyond what I have found other agencies do and would highly recommend them without hesitation. The level of customer service was exceptional and always took into consideration my personal needs rather then their personal gains. A very refreshing approach.

Amazing consultants
Top class Recruitment Agency. I have worked with a few different agencies, and I have always found Active Recruitment to be not only very professional but very approachable with fantastic people skills. Unlike other agencies whereby sometimes they forget that they are dealing with people with this agency they will get to know you and your individual needs. You will not receive endless irrelevant calls or emails unlike other agencies. The consultants will take time to find out exactly what you are looking for and contact you when a position arises to meet your needs. I would highly recommend this agency if you were seeking work within education. Thank you, Active Recruitment, for all the jobs all you have found for me over several years.

Top class
Active Recruitment are a specialist Educational Job Agency who provide long term work, most of which becomes permanent if the employee and employer both work well together. I started working for this agency on a long-term supply contract supporting ASD pupils in a local secondary school and am about to sign a permanent contract. This is much better than some agencies who only offer day-to-day work. I like to work with a group of children, offering stability by sticking around and not going from school to school. They have a lot of local schools that they work with, so should be able to find candidates work in suitable schools. I cannot praise Active enough and they found me work within days of joining them. Definitely the best and most approachable agency I have ever worked with.

Approachable agency
I would like to show true appreciation for how wonderful Active Recruitment are. Looking for work can be stressful and sometimes puts candidates in a very vulnerable position. However the team were amazing from beginning to end. They have a warm personable nature that makes you feel at ease. They will also work tirelessly to find the right job for you. They are honest and straight to the point, however it’s their humanistic nature that makes you feel everything is to be alright. I can’t recommend active enough. They help with CV’s, interviews and anything else you need. Their service is tailored for each client. I genuinely believe Active Recruitment will sacrifice their own financial gain to make sure their clients are happy.

Team were amazing
I am a Senior Inclusion Adviser for an Inner London Borough, SENCo and Counselling lead, I cannot speak highly enough of the experience I have working with Active Recruitment. Not only do they offer a very professional service – they also offer a very informed one with a strong moral compass putting the suitability of candidates at the centre of what they do, therefore providing the best possible care for our children. Active Recruitment has a refreshing and much welcome approach to recruitment which looks for the best possible fit, not the fit for right now. I would have no hesitation in recommending Active for teachers/support staff looking for work, or for schools looking to appoint staff. Well done Active Recruitment - you have achieved what many other local and national companies haven't and I wish you many more years of success.
I cannot speak highly enough
I have never worked with an agency at any stage of my 20-year career and had a certain idea about how they operate. With Active Recruitment, I have found the whole process to be refreshing and extremely supportive. All the team are professional, supportive and on the ball. Through their guidance and proactive support - I have secured a new post with a renowned trust based in London. In my experience, they have built trusted relationships with a range of employers across the educational spectrum and is customer focused in their approach. Be it with dealing with trusts or down to the smallest details that help you as professional. They know the educational landscape well and I would highly recommend Active Recruitment if you were considering your next steps professionally.

Extremely supportive
Active Recruitment have made the search for an ECT position so easy and helped to settle my nerves too as I have had problems with previous recruiters. From the beginning they identified what I would like and found the perfect school. A few days before my interview my consultant made sure to contact me and go over in detail the questions that could be asked, general advice and if I had any queries, we spent nearly 45 minutes on the phone preparing and making me feel at ease – going above and beyond! I felt so ready after our conversation. When it finally came to interview, I felt 100% ready and was successful in my interview! Thank you so much! Active Recruitment have been a fantastic company and I cannot recommend them enough.

Fantastic company
Active Recruitment are my “go to” agency for any recruitment needs in the school. I have been working closely with them since 2015 and have always found their transparency and honesty so refreshing compared to other agencies that contact us. They genuinely have the best interests of the school, pupils, community, and candidates at heart. Thank you Active Recruitment for being on hand 24-7 and for taking the stress out of recruitment for me and my school.
