Testimonials

 

“We advertised five posts, we filled every single one of them and got really, really good people. I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of applicants. We’re regarding it as the only recruitment mechanism we will use in the future

Iain Veitch, Head Teacher at Park View School, County Durham

 


 

“I have advertised for several teaching positions over the years and, at different times, have had little, and on some occasions, no response even when we’ve used a very expensive national advertiser. This time we used Jobs in Schools | North East and received 9 applications for a main scale post. What was really pleasing was the quality of the candidates – it was very difficult to decide who to ‘sift out’ at the shortlisting stage!”

Derryth Hope, Head Teacher at Berwick Middle School, Northumberland

 


 

“We had a cracking response for the Deputy Head vacancy, nearly double the usual average and at minimal cost. If there is one thing that has become apparent to me in the last years is that people prefer regional to national solutions.”

Danny Eason, Head Teacher at Fishburn Primary School, County Durham
