Eteach.com is the UK’s leading online education recruitment service for schools .It’s where teachers and support staff look for the latest jobs, and through which schools attract the best staff.
With over 450,000 registered members, 625,000 site visits, five million page impressions and over half a million job searches to the site each month, eteach.com is an established and effective online recruitment resource.
Whether for permanent or temporary teachers, supply or support staff, we have led the field in online recruitment since 2000.
Founded by Paul Howells, a former teacher with some 20 years experience in teacher recruitment, eteach.com is tailor-made for schools and was the first company in the UK to take education recruitment completely online.
And we’ve been online and growing ever since. We harness the power of the Internet to provide a greener, leaner way of matching those seeking work in education with schools. Eteach.com has been designed through extensive consultation with teachers and head teachers across the UK. We are an immediate, low cost alternative to traditional newspaper recruitment advertising.
Based in Camberley, Surrey, and with schools liaison managers spread throughout England and Wales, we work with over a third of the UK’s local authorities and schools. And we are extremely visible, getting vacancies in front of the right people through proactive online and off line marketing and links to key recruitment partners.
But we are more than a jobs board. Through great website design, usability and online tools and resources, eteach.com supports both schools and potential candidates through the entire recruitment process.
For schools, our newly launched Premium service is far superior to anything else on the market. For a set annual fee, a school can post unlimited vacancies, upload videos, brochures and pictures in order to present its profile favourably to candidates. Plus a recruiter can use Eteach premium to sift through applications and manage and communicate with candidates and referees on online. Premium is like a virtual PA, saving schools time, paperwork and above all, money. Above all it’s the most valuable online HR package for schools.
For job seekers, our Staffroom section is richly populated with free tips and easy-to-use on line tools- from CV building to interview techniques. There’s a forum area, blog and an opportunity to sign up for e-newsletters and bulletins as well as weekly job alerts, feeding members with job information that matches their own search criteria.
At eteach.com we are committed to the highest standards of best practice in recruitment and constantly add value through our experience in the education recruitment sector, coupled with exceptional technological knowhow.
