Welcome to the Schools HR Co-operative Recruitment Page, we hope that the following information gives you an insight into the services and support we will provide Headteachers recruiting staff to their school.

We provide a managed advertising and recruitment service to ensure best value for money. Utilising signposting and select media we have reduced our schools advertising costs by in excess of 50% over the last 2 years. Further development of our recruitment portal  includes a talent pool where we can notify potential candidates of new job opportunities – this will improve the response to the jobs you post. The managed service means that we take care of the correspondence. You just tell us who you want to interview and when.
