We are committed to recruiting and retaining the best teachers - read what education professionals in the area are saying about James...
‘The level of hands-on support James provided from start to finish made all the difference and I believe it made a significant contribution to our ultimately making a first class appointment. We attracted a very strong field despite the constraints of the pandemic and I believe this demonstrates the quality of the work James did up front in putting together the recruitment materials, talking to candidates and lining up phone calls with me and David" Malcom – Chair (2021)
"I'm sure you've heard the news, I'll be joining the Trust in June! Thanks again for the role you played in helping me secure the position" Carl – Data and Assessments Manager (2021)
"I just wanted to say thank you so much again for all of the work you have done for me over the past few weeks, to facilitate the meeting and interview. I am so pleased I sent that email about the job at Caedmon and there is no doubt I would not have been offered this opportunity without all of your help! I really appreciate all of the work you have done, toing and froing between me and the school and organising of everything. I have been so glad to work with you again" Harriet – Maths Teacher/Mastery Lead (2020)
"Thank you so much! It's still not yet sunk in! Thank you so much for all of your help with the whole process." Emma – KS2 Teacher (2020)
"Thanks so much for all your help in finding me a Science post I can’t wait to relocate and join the school." Mark – Teacher of Science (2020)
"Thank you so much James for supporting me in gaining the position!! I am really excited about this opportunity and the children and staff were so welcoming too. I really enjoyed the interview" Fiona – Year 1 Class Teacher (2020)
"I just wanted to email and thank you for all that you have done for me over the last half term. It has been so handy to have you as a point of communication for the teaching vacancies advertised by North Yorkshire County Council, liaising with just one person rather than with many. Your advice and guidance helped me to secure a new teaching position." Rebecca, KS2 Teacher
"Harriet has made a brilliant start, what a find! You would not guess that she is not a maths specialist when you see her in action." Michael, Head Teacher
"I just wanted to email to say thank you for passing my details onto East Ayton, I really appreciate it. It was great to speak to the Head and Assistant Head today, if you could pass on my thanks to them too that would be great. I got a nice feeling about the school from walking around." Jade, part of the Talent Pool
"It was a really enjoyable day and an interesting one too. I am excited to get started and will work towards a smooth transition for the children and school during the next half-term. Thanks for all your help and advice." David, appointed as Year 4 Teacher
"I found the recruitment process and having a chat with you initially was really helpful. If we hadn’t spoken I may not have been inspired to go out to visit the school and chat with the head before applying. Thank you for supporting me through my application." Rebekah, Teaching Assistant relocating from Wakefield
"James was recommended to me by another Head Teacher when we were discussing recruitment issues. He has now worked with us on two vacancies and on both his help, advice and support has proved invaluable. He has supported the recruitment process from beginning to end, from the creation of the advert to the appointment of a new member of staff (and everything in between!). His involvement in the process has not only saved me a considerable amount of time but helped us clarify exactly what we are looking for, and the suitability of what is available to us. We now have a new member of staff starting in January who, without James' involvement, it is highly likely we wouldn't have." Derek, Head Teacher
"James helped with the wording of the advert in order to promote the school in the best possible way and dealt with advertising which allowed for a wider audience. As a head across three schools it is not easy to contact me, therefore when candidates were contacting James for job details and applications forms he was professional and efficient. He remained in regular contact with me throughout the process and gave me a great deal of detail about all candidates. I will definitely recommend James to colleagues and if I need to recruit again will be in touch." Helen, Head Teacher
