Job description

The Role

We are currently looking to appoint a Recruitment Advisor to lead recruitment for our pioneering and nationally-ranking school-centred initial teacher training programme (SCITT).  The person appointed to this new role will be responsible for the end-to end recruitment of trainees, ensuring that our recruitment is professional, engaging, efficient and cost-effective and we are recruiting individuals of the highest-possible calibre to join our various training programmes.

As a SCITT, we are currently in the process of expansion, with a particular focus on our ‘Future Teach Scholarship’ route (our training pathway for candidates demonstrating high levels of academic success and strong teaching potential). The Recruitment Advisor will play an integral role in this expansion and in our continued success. Working in partnership with key stakeholders, they will develop innovative and creative recruitment and brand-building strategies, promoting our programmes through various channels and acting as a brand ambassador at careers fairs and events. They will also continually work towards enhancing and improving our applications, selection and on-boarding processes.

The Organisation

The Pimlico-London SCITT is a member of Future Academies, a multi-academy trust (MAT) and family of nine schools in London and Hertfordshire. As a MAT working predominantly with schools located in disadvantaged areas, our motto, libertas per cultum (freedom through education), is always at the heart of what we do. We believe that all young people, regardless of their background or circumstances, are able to achieve, given the right support. Therefore, we are committed to providing each and every young person under our care with a broad, balanced and rigorous education, within a disciplined but caring environment.

The Pimlico-London SCITT was founded in 2013, with the aim of recruiting and training the next generation of outstanding teachers. We offer an academically rigorous and school-led ITT programme, balancing classroom know-how and experience with academic excellence and PGCE study. We are very proud of our excellent outcomes for our trainee teachers: to date, we have been judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, and have been ranked the third best SCITT in the country (the first in London) by the Good Teacher Training Guide 2017.
