Summer Term is in full swing!

April is a strange month! With the Easter holidays taking up the first two weeks, it can fly by without you even noticing! Here at #ClarusEducation we still found plenty of things to keep us busy...

Clarus Highlights

With the office operating on holiday hours for the Easter break, we managed to pack a lot into our shorter days! We registered some fantastic candidates for support and teaching roles over the holidays, and liaised with schools to set up interviews once the Summer term started.

The team are busy working with schools to fill their vacancies for the new academic year. With the resignation deadline coming up quickly, now is a great time to check out our live vacancies to see what is available.

It was a good month for celebrating too. Not only did the entire team thoroughly enjoy munching our way through a mountain of Easter Eggs, but we also had an extra special team social! It was our Managing Director's 40th Birthday, so we combined our team meeting with some old fashioned fun and games at FairGame. It was a great way to wish Danny Jillions a very happy birthday!

The end of the month also saw us congratulate Senior Consultant, Marianne on passing her probation. Well done!

Meet the Team

This month we get to know SEN Consultant, Kelvin Fortune.

What boroughs do you cover? SEN Specialist Schools across North, North West, South West and West London 

Why education recruitment? There’s a real sense of pride when you recommend a candidate to a client school and the candidate is successful at interview or trial day. You know the candidate will really add value to the school and the educational experiences of children who have additional learning needs. 

Describe yourself in three words:  Loyal. Opinionated. Optimistic.

Now for the really important stuff! This or that?

Its super busy at Clarus this month! There are lots of interviews being lined up with our amazing client schools. The resignation deadline will soon be upon us, so move quickly if you are looking for a new teaching role for September. We will soon be looking at ensuring our client schools have all of their support staff needs met too, so if you are interested in a role in Education, why not register your interest with us today!

With Mental Health Week approaching, we will also be focusing on Teacher Wellbeing. We'll be launching an exciting new competition soon. Please do follow the Clarus page to ensure you are kept in the loop!
