Two new posts were created at the firm’s East Midlands’ office in Worksop. Katie Horn began work as a recruitment consultant, building on her previous experience working in recruitment resourcing and call centre roles and Molly Simm was appointed as an office administrator.
Another new job was created in Provide Education’s West Yorkshire division, based at Brighouse, where graduate Liam Perry was appointed as a recruitment consultant. He has previous experience working in the leisure industry.
All the jobs are newly-created posts at the expanding firm which offers a 24-hour rapid response recruitment service to place supply teachers and non-teaching staff into hundreds of schools.
Managing director Barry Simmons said: “It’s very exciting taking on so many new people in such a short space of time. We’ve recruited to meet growing demand for our services, which has grown year-on-year since we set up the company in 2007.”
