Experts in college recruitment

We’ve worked with further education colleges for over 20 years, and we’re proud to say we’re the first-choice agency for many candidates and clients. That’s because we’re the very best at what we do: our expertise in FE colleges is second to none.FE colleges deliver education and training to young people and adults in a range of forms, from A Levels and apprenticeships, to vocational qualifications, traineeships and entry-level training. Many colleges provide higher education qualifications too, such as undergraduate, post-graduate and foundation degree courses.

There are 209 colleges in England, and we work closely with many of these. So, whether you work at an FE college and are looking to recruit, or you’re a candidate looking for new opportunities at one of these colleges; we can help.

There are many different temporary and permanent roles available, from lecturers, teachers and tutors, to learning support, internal quality assurance, trainers and technicians. There are also opportunities within business support and operations, such as marketing, HR and IT.

We understand the challenges faced by further education colleges

There is currently a UK-wide skills shortage that is hitting FE colleges. Whilst this extends to teaching in general, there’s a particular shortage of teaching in maths, English, construction, engineering and manufacturing, science and technology – so the need for talented people in the right places has never been greater.

We want to help fill those gaps, and if you think you’ve got what it takes to deliver fantastic learning in these subjects, we want to hear from you!

Online DBS processing

We know that compliance and vetting processes can be complicated, especially in this sector. That’s why we invested in building our industry-leading eSafeguarding software – so we’re able to approve checks for both our candidates and third-party clients in as little as 24 hours.

We work with organisations across the sector

It’s not just FE colleges we help to recruit great staff for. Take a look below at some of the other types of organisations we work with:
