Job Description

A career in recruitment is one that will challenge, engage, and satisfy any hard working and determined individual.

Teaching Personnel offer the pathway to build a successful career in recruitment and support all employee's journeys helping them grow from trainees into managers of the future.

The Role

This role involves making a high volume of sales and business development calls to schools across your local region; resourcing and recruiting quality teachers and carrying out interviews. Along with having regular face-to-face client visits (via video conferencing due to COVID-19) whilst building relationships with key decision makers in schools. The role also requires excellent communication skills as trainees are required to write their own adverts to attract candidates and marketing to showcase those candidates and their attributes to schools.

We always welcome a broad range of skills, personal attributes, and potential, rather than experience. We have a large number of outstanding consultants, Branch Managers and senior leaders that joined Teaching Personnel with no previous experience in recruitment, however, their determination, charisma and desire to do well have meant they have been very successful.

This role is offered on a full-time, permanent basis, working 42.5 hours per week over 5 days (Monday - Friday).

From day one, along with an intensive induction programme, you will be part of our new-starter programme ‘tpGROW’, which is an industry leading development programme; where you can expect to be continuously supported throughout and be provided with all the resources required in order to have a successful career at Teaching Personnel.

You will be accompanied on this exciting journey with like-minded ambitious consultants from a few of our UK branches, all looking to gain the best possible start.

Along with an excellent starting salary and uncapped performance related commission, you will have the opportunity to be promoted up to four times a year, with the potential to increase your earnings by up to £11k within your first year. You will also have access to a large range of other benefits including:

Reduced working hours in school holidays
Generous holiday entitlement which increases with service
Additional cash bonuses for performance

The Team

The Sheffield Secondary branch is based in our Sheffield office, which is in the heart of the city centre, close to local amenities and easily accessible via public transport, being only a 15 minute walk from Sheffield Station. The moment you walk into the office the positive atmosphere is immediately noticeable. This infectious culture heavily contributes to a very collaborative learning environment where everyone’s thoughts and ideas are supported and encouraged.

After all that hard work, we are also a very social bunch! Aside from frequent branch and regional nights out we have regular company-wide events which give everyone a chance to get together and celebrate our combined efforts and achievements.

A great 'can do' attitude, confidence, drive, and the ability to work well in a team environment will help you make this a success.
