About Now Teach
Now Teach brings experienced professionals into teaching.
Lives and careers are lasting longer. Now Teach helps people change profession and redeploy their talent and experience in the classroom. We support them through their careers to ensure they stay in education. Our aim is to address the crisis of recruitment and retention in the teaching profession, to ensure the students who need it most get the best education possible.
We aim to draw on the experience our teachers have from successful careers in industry and the public sector to inform the future direction of our education system and the teaching profession.
In the first two years of operation, Now Teach has attracted over 6000 expressions of interest and we have successfully recruited 200 career changers into teaching. We have built a support programme to retain these teachers, reaching an 82% retention rate with 2018’s cohort. Our funding is from the Department for Education and philanthropic sources, allowing us to make an impact at a time when money in the profession is tight. We have expanded beyond our original region of London and Hastings to two additional regions across the UK (the West Midlands and East Anglia) and we are continuing to establish ourselves as a significant player in the sector.
We’re looking for a positive, pro-active and target driven Recruitment Advisor who is committed to Now Teach’s vision and can help us refine and grow our recruitment. As an integral part of our small, friendly recruitment team you will be an expert advisor on the education sector and teacher training, be able to build relationships quickly and communicate confidently with experienced professionals making the move into teaching.
You’ll work with the team to get 120 outstanding career changers with the strong motivation on board, helping them to find the right training programme and join our teacher network starting from September 2020. Your number one priority will be delivering an exceptional candidate experience at all stages so that candidates respect and trust your advice, while bringing candidates through the recruitment process in a timely manner.
Please send a CV and a cover letter detailing why you would be a great fit for the role.
Recruitment will be on a rolling basis without a formal deadline. We will progress candidates as they apply and close the role when complete.
