What our clients say

“We first used Clarus as a result of trying but failing to find high quality candidates using the TES and other publications. Although the fee was much higher than a single advert, it was competitive compared to other agencies and the candidates sent to us were of an exceptionally high calibre.

They are still with us after two or three years and the cost of the fee therefore represents good value for money. Danny has been involved in teacher and leadership recruitment for many years, listens carefully to what we need as a school and doesn’t recommend anyone unless they accurately meet our requirements.”

Head Teacher

St Johns Upper Holloway Primary School - Islington

“We are a large four form entry primary school in Newham. We have worked with Alison Watkis, one of the Clarus consultants, for seven years. Alison has consistently provided us with a personal service, getting to know our needs and sourcing high quality teachers who have generally stayed with us and progressed in their careers.

Clarus’s rates are competitive when compared to other recruitment agencies. They have provided us with an excellent, efficient service and as such I have frequently recommended them to other schools.”

“Finding the right candidate for the right role can be challenging at times and going through the normal ‘recruitment campaign’ route, can sometimes not bring about the results we want.  Clarus have consistently helped us to match talented candidates to roles here at Winton, which has resulted in excellent outcomes for our pupils.

We have successfully recruited Teachers and Support Staff alike to many posts and  some of them permanently.  This says something really positive about how much we can trust Danny and his team at Clarus to really listen to our needs, which in turn has led to excellent outcomes for our pupils and school community.

It’s so wonderful that that so some of our staff who have been introduced by Clarus, have gone on to achieve great success in our school and beyond, with some of them joining the School’s Direct programme in order to become teachers and developing their interests in different disciplines to support school improvement.”

Assistant Head Teacher

Winton Primary School

“Durants has worked with Ali for one term. We have found his dealings with us to be professional, courteous and very responsive. Ali took the time to visit Durants to familiarise himself with the needs of our pupils so he could direct the right candidates our way.

He also spent a morning working in a class to experience what his candidates would. Most importantly the candidates that Ali has placed with us have been excellent. They have been mature, hard-working and eager to learn and have fitted easily into our staff team. We are glad that Ali was recommended to us and will definitely continue to use his services.”

“From day one Natalie has proved to be extremely efficient and is very professional.  She listens to our requirements and ensures the candidates put forward are right for the post and our schools.

I feel very well supported and confident when working with Natalie on our recruitment needs.”
