We match passionate people with rewarding careers in education

Primary schools

Finding our candidates the right job is key. We specialise in securing permanent and long-term opportunities for existing teachers and graduates who want to work in primary education as primary school teachers.  

The role of a class teacher within primary education is to develop schemes of work and lesson plans in line with the national primary curriculum and early years’ framework. You are responsible for developing and fostering the appropriate skills and social abilities, organising the classroom and learning resources, and creating displays to encourage a positive learning environment for pupils aged 3-11 years.

A successful primary teacher will be confident in motivating pupils with enthusiasm and imagination, whilst maintaining discipline and ensuring pupil progress in line with the appropriate framework.

Our team’s industry expertise helps us guide, advise, and most importantly, listen. We’re here to help those wanting to work in this rewarding environment, and we work hard and smart to make a positive difference to their careers within this space.

Secondary schools

Secondary school teachers are subject specialists, skilled and trained to teach one or possibly two subjects across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5. As a subject specialist, a secondary school teacher keeps up-to-date with developments in their subject area, new resources, methods, and national objectives.

The role of a secondary school teacher involves trying new teaching methods and using the latest resources. Over the course of the academic year, teachers are tasked with preparing pupils for qualifications and external examinations, whilst managing pupil behaviour, undertaking pastoral duties, and supporting children through academic and personal difficulties.

London secondary schools have become very diverse learning environments, catering for pupils of differing abilities, aged 11-16yrs and 11-18yrs. Clarus Education partners and supports a number of schools, from voluntary-aided faith schools and state-maintained comprehensives through to outstanding academies.

SEN schools

For a number of positions, our client schools require specific experience and qualifications, with some happy to consider individuals looking to make the move into working within special educational needs.

Pupils with such needs are often eligible for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), which is a legal document that sets out a description of each child’s needs and a plan to meet them through education, health, and social care.

Whether working within a dedicated SEN or mainstream school, class sizes are typically smaller with around 6-8 pupils, with a higher staff-to-pupil ratio than a typical classroom. SEN environments suit and require individuals with a genuine passion and interest in SEN, able to navigate through the daily challenges faced.

Supporting children who have been identified as having special educational needs or requiring additional support has been an increasingly fast-growing job sector for Clarus Education. Our specific SEN roles range from in-class support to the management team.

If you are looking to secure a long-term or permanent position as an SEN specialist, please feel free to look through our current positions or register your interest today.

After moving, Clarus helped me find the perfect role for my circumstances with an amazingly short commute within a couple of weeks. Shevonnae guided me throughout the whole process and I can’t say how grateful I am to have worked with her. She has made my transition to a new job in new location stress free. I hope my ongoing relationship with Clarus remains this wonderful.

The support I received at Clarus was impeccable. This is the most professional and positive experience I have had with a recruitment company. Kind, quick and tentative service. Danny and Kelvin supported me throughout the procedure and matched me to a great job. Freddie was also incredibly helpful regarding my document checking and references. I highly value and recommend Clarus Education and I am grateful for their excellent work.
