Meet the Liverpool Wirral Teaching Recruitment Team
The Academics Liverpool & Wirral team is lucky enough to have two teacher recruitment offices; one in the heart of Liverpool and the other in Hooton, ensuring that they can cover the Merseyside region in the most effective manner. They work with a whole host of schools from the Wirral up to Sefton and Knowsley. They are partnered very closely with our Warrington teacher recruitment team, to ensure they have best selection of teachers and support staff possible. They currently specialise in covering both the Primary and Secondary sectors, supplying Teachers, Teaching Assistants and other Support Staff into both daily supply teaching, long term supply and also permanent teaching jobs and support roles.
