With our industry leading training scheme and transparent career development framework, you will have the tools and support to progress your career and earn uncapped commission on top of your basic salary! 

Why join Reed’s Education division?

Reed Education is one of the UK’s fastest growing education recruitment agencies, providing expertise in primary, secondary, SEN and further education to schools, colleges, local authorities, and educational organisations. Reed Education was founded over 20 years ago and we have 30 offices across England and Wales. Our service is centred on an ethical approach to recruitment and a dedication to attracting and supporting the best candidates –both teaching and non-teaching professionals. 

What does the role entail?

Maintaining and developing business from existing schools and converting schools that don’t use to ‘users’. High volumes of phone based sales calls. Your desk will grow and develop from high levels of activity which is the cornerstone of this role. You will be expected to attend client meetings and convert non users to active clients and interview and grow your pool of candidates. KPI targets will be set and audit and compliance requirements must be met working in the education sector.

We are looking for someone who is:

  • Happy to work hard and have fun at the same time
  • Easy to get on with and can pick things up quickly and run their day to day busy at an efficient speed
  • Organised, methodical and process driven
  • Wanting to perform at a high level, consistently and earn a great annual income with their bonus
  • Willing to go the extra mile to provide a first class service to both their potential and active schools/clients and their candidates that they are representing
  • Determined to fill every job that they work in partnership with their schools
  • Honest, trustworthy, a team player and works well with the team, Region and Division

You will receive a competitive basic salary and an amazing bonus scheme that rewards you for your hard work. You’ll get on-going training and support in branch from your line manager, peers and as well as our incredible L&D team.

There are SO many incentives to mention here at Reed, but what I will say is that multiple people had their holidays paid for this year and next year due to their high performance! That’s one example and if that sounds good, then you’ll be intrigued to find out more about what we offer.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with recruitment, resourcing, or sales skills to join an industry leader with great career opportunities, if this sounds like something you can do, this could be the right role for you!

Simply submit an application to express your interest! If successful, Talent Acquisition will get in contact to arrange a telephone interview. Following this we will either arrange a video interview or register your interest for a face to face interview.
