“I joined PK education in May 2017 having previously worked for large national recruitment agencies, and I was instantly impressed with PK’s personal and candidate led approach to supporting schools with their staffing needs. Having enjoyed over 10 years working within education recruitment, it is extremely important to me that I’m part of team who genuinely believe in being honest with candidates and clients alike; whilst maintaining the highest standards of child safety and recruitment best practice.
I am SO passionate about supporting young people in their education journey and helping education professionals secure jobs they love. I feel like my colleagues at PK share this passion with me; and every day I get to come to work with an experienced, knowledgeable and supportive team, both at branch and company level.”

The thing I most enjoy about working for PK Education is that I have the freedom to make my own decisions about my desk, I can build relationships with schools and teachers as I please. PK Education also have the most generous commission structure I’ve come across in education recruitment – it’s great to be rewarded and recognised for my hard work.”
