Our highly successful Cornwall Primary branch are looking to appoint an Education Recruitment Consultant to join their team. This well-established team based in beautiful Truro, Cornwall are one of the biggest branches in Teaching Personnel and solely focus on servicing Primary schools within Cornwall and the surrounding areas. Due to a maternity leave, they are looking for a new member to help maintain existing business and develop new business in schools. An individual with a background in recruitment or business development would be a good fit for this team as they can hit the ground running working at a fast pace from day one, although not essential. Education experience and knowledge of the school system is also beneficial but not essential.
The role is to start in October, and the hiring managers will be holding interviews over the coming weeks. Due to the geographical locations of the schools you will be working with, the ability to drive and have your own vehicle is essential. The role is a maternity cover starting in October working until September 2021. Teaching Personnel would consider applications from individuals who live outside of the Truro area as we can facilitate remote working but the successful applicant would still be required to commute to Truro 2-3 days a week.
The Cornwall Primary branch is part of a large Cornwall location and part of a larger South West region with offices in Plymouth and Exeter so there is the possibility of being able to secure a permanent role within the region at the end of the maternity cover.
