Our approach

Clarus Education has been born and developed from necessity. Education and schools are striving to achieve a highly educated society that is no longer restricted by background or family circumstances. The recruitment of staff needs to be consistent and of the highest standard without being a drain on resources and budgets.

Working with Clarus Education is very different from the traditional experiences of staff recruitment and the use of ‘supply agencies’. We are a specialist education recruitment consultancy, focused on high calibre permanent and long-term staff; providing a much improved and in-depth service to all schools.

Our consultative approach means we partner with our client schools. We stand out in our unwavering dedication to source the ‘right’ candidates, whether an office administrator, class teacher or key member of your SLT.

We first used Clarus as a result of failing to find high-quality candidates using TES and other publications. Although the fee was much higher than an advert, it was competitive to other agencies and we were sent exceptional candidates.

They are still with us after three years and represent good value for money. Danny has been involved in teacher and leadership recruitment for many years, listens to what we need as a school and doesn’t recommend anyone unless they accurately meet our requirements.

Brian Welsh
Head Teacher - St Johns Upper Holloway Primary School - Islington

As a large four form entry primary school in Newham we've worked with Alison Watkis, from Clarus for seven years. Alison has consistently provided 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 in comparison to other agencies. They've given us an excellent, efficient service and as such, I've frequently recommended them to other schools.

Shahed Ahmed
Head Teacher - Elmhurst Primary School

From day one the Clarus team has proved to be extremely efficient and very professional. They listen to our requirements and ensure the candidates put forward are right for the post and our schools.

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

Mrs Evans
Recruitment Manager - Academy Federation

As a federation of three schools, we've used Clarus for a number of years due to the fantastic service they provide. They always listen to the role we are looking for and send us only the best.

The selection of applicants that have come are of the highest quality and it's clear Clarus is able to find the right people as they understand our schools and the values that are important to us.

The service that Clarus provides us with is consistent, reliable and second to none. One phone call or email to Clarus and we can guarantee that if there is someone suited to our school, they will find them.
