Great workplace, met some lovely people and learned lots of new skills in the role.
Primary Education Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 1 February 2018
I became the primary eduction recruitment consultant for the Rotherham and Barnsley areas of South Yorkshire, I was in a complete 360 recruitment role that required me to do all of my own resourcing, writing job adverts, locating long term and short term positions within primary schools, liasing with school headteachers and business managers to fill positions, processing DBS applications, performing NCTL checks, sourcing and interviewing teaching and support staff, negotiating pay rates and ensuring world class service. I gained a number of client conversions during my time in the role and actively operated marketing campaigns to gain attention such as a weekly quiz and a sunflower competition. This gave me a way to regularly visit schools and establish their needs, which proved to attract business. I used a BMW 3 series which was brand new at the time and provided by the company to visit clients one day a week. It was very candidate focused and sourced some really good teachers that gained excellent feedback, I knew my pool of staff fantastically and it reflected in my confidence to find them work. I kept in touch with them consistently to discuss new opportunities and keep up to date with type of work they required. During my time at Celsian, the Sheffield branch was shortlisted as the branch to be audited by APSCo, an audit we passed with flying colours due to great organization and teamwork.
Overall it was a great place to work, very supportive, lovely people and lots to learn! I would recommend getting a job here.
