Recruitment for local authorities

Looking for support with your recruitment? Throughout our history, we’ve been supporting local authorities to recruit the staff they need to run effectively. During this time, we’ve developed the expertise to know the ins-and-outs of the challenges and needs of organisations like yours.

Understanding recruitment for the public sector

Protocol has served the education and public sectors for 25 years. We understand the importance of public sector organisations in the community, and we work hard to provide exactly what you need from us. We also understand the challenges that local authorities are facing. Lower funding from government means less funding locally and the removal of services which directly affects you. But you still need to deliver high quality services to support your communities. We can help by providing a flexible workforce you can manage to support your recruitment needs in line with changing needs and priorities.

We work with a national pool of candidates that is unrivalled in the sector and offer you a truly unique personalised service. In short, we always go the extra mile to understand what is needed for the people and organisations we work with.

A different approach

At Protocol, we take the time to get to know all of our clients and candidates. This personal and tailored approach helps us to place the right people in the right roles, every time. So, if you’re looking for a new role within a local authority, or you have a vacancy to fill, get in touch. We’ve helped recruit for permanent and temporary teaching staff, including tutors, trainers, adult learning managers, heads of learning, curriculum development managers, learning programme officers, and admin staff, in addition to interim management roles. We can also help with business support and operational roles, such as marketing, HR and IT.

Speedy online DBS checks

Many employees working at local authorities will need to have passed their DBS checks, and that’s no problem. We use our own online DBS application system eSafeguarding, also used by clients across the education, healthcare and recruitment sectors, to run these checks – with most of them returned within 24 hours.
