Compliance Plus

As a national agency, our consultants have comprehensive head office support  but their approach to education recruitment is still very personal. This one to one service is something that will continue throughout both the recruitment process, and any subsequent placement with us.   Academic’s consultants understand that a good relationship is the key to a successful working partnership. Based in offices across the UK, from Portsmouth to Hull, our consultants herald from a range of personal and work backgrounds. If you’d like to know more about your local team, take a look at our Meet the Teams section.

The majority of our business is working with UK schools and UK based teachers. However, we recognise that in certain areas there is a shortage of good quality teachers in the UK and this is likely to grow. Academics has an International team, recruiting well qualified, good quality teachers from America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Ireland for work in UK schools.
