What Our Clients Say
“Thank you for all your help with the recruitment – it’s been great working with you, and I really feel that you understand what we are looking for in our candidates and have provided us with some great staff”
HR Manager and PA
Abbey College Cambridge
“I just wanted to put on record my thanks for all your help over the last couple of weeks in filling our vacancy for a temporary Head of Drama. You could not have been more helpful or efficient. We had drawn a complete blank in our own attempts to fill the position but you immediately understood our brief and to have found so many possible candidates in such a short time period was extremely impressive. I also appreciate the way you answered our queries so quickly – often outside of office hours! – and you simply made the whole process exceptionally easy for us. We used Connaught a while ago to fill a couple of vacancies and on the basis of our experience this time round I would definitely use the firm again and I would be very happy to recommend you to any potential new clients. I’m very grateful for all your hard work and support.”
King William’s College Isle of Man
“We were struggling to source a high calibre Teacher of Spanish, but Connaught put forward two candidates, one of whom we successfully appointed and who has settled in well. All our dealings with the agency were met with professionalism and any enquiries were responded to promptly and efficiently. We were also impressed that the agency proposed alternative pay and/or fee arrangements, so that the School benefited financially. We would happily use Connaught again when looking to recruit high calibre teaching staff.”

“We feel this has been a successful recruitment process for us – more so than when we have placed adverts and website postings”
Wellow House School
“I have been dealing with Connaught Education since December 2013 and have found them to be extremely successful in understanding what I was looking for and in supplying excellent teachers, both supply and permanent for the school.
At very short notice they have found for us at Buckingham College Prep, a supply maths teacher, a permanent music teacher (good teachers in those areas are like hens’ teeth) and most recently a Year 1 teacher to cover 2 terms maternity leave. The calibre of all these teachers is excellent and Connaught obviously vet their people really well. I have been delighted and always think of them first when seeking either supply or permanent staff.
As a matter of interest Connaught were recommended to me by Dr Trevor Lee at Northwood Prep.”

“We have used Connaught Education to source a variety of candidates in teaching and support roles. With a strong candidate base CE have the ability to provide a swift and efficient service when required, and can also handle more specific campaigns that require a longer targeted search. We have been delighted with the quality of candidates and the service from the team; they have knowledgeable and professional account managers who I can highly recommend.”
