What's Different About the DIRECT Approach?

DIRECT is not just another agency...

Schools in the UK are guaranteed to be allowed to hire their teachers on DIRECT school contract.  We know that schools as well as teachers prefer this approach to recruitment. 

DIRECT offers schools a fresh pool of teachers.  Rather than only focusing on saturated and declining markets, we stay ahead of other companies by searching for new, emerging sources of quality teachers.  DIRECT recruits from all English speaking countries as we have offices in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres. 

Good Relationships

We value excellent working relationships with our schools.  We have 15 year's recruitment experience and come from teaching as well as legal backgrounds. We endeavour to help all our schools with their staffing requirements but if we are not in the position to assist for any reason, we will let you know.

Our Teachers

DIRECT specialises in teacher recruitment only.  Members of our team are qualified, experienced teachers and know the qualities that a good classroom practitioner should hold.  We cast a wide net in order to attract high quality teacher candidates whom we rigorously vet and screen before submitting CVs to you.  At DIRECT, we constantly strive to place the best teachers in the most suitable positions.  We assist our teachers through every stage of the process, from CV building to interview preparation to help with relocation.

Placement Fees

We charge our schools a very competitive, one-off placement fee.  Daily rates and agency contracts do not apply.  Schools are protected should a teacher leave his/her post within a period of time and are entitled to a rebate which works on the basis of a sliding scale.
