Let’s take it right back to 2011 when I started my first job working as an Education Recruitment Consultant. I remember that day well, riddled with nerves and the Education system blew my mind!
I quickly picked up on my favourite parts to the job and that was building my network of candidates and securing them their dream job (the best feeling).
Since 2011, I have continued to grow my skills and knowledge within the Education Industry and my passion for supporting schools and helping educational professionals is as strong as ever.
There is so much more to Education Recruitment. We are working with people on a daily basis and I always take pride in delivering what I say I can do. Taking time to listen to both client’s and candidate’s individual needs and tailoring a service to what you are looking for is what sets us apart from everyone else.
I began my career in Education Recruitment back in 2016. I quickly found that my many years of working with people face to face and having to use interpersonal skills frequently, I was well suited to this type of recruitment.
I quickly built up strong candidate and client relationships and in turn, progressed through promotions to a Business Manager.
Now owning my own recruitment company, I have taken with me what really works when finding people their ‘dream job’.
It means so much more to me than just ‘placing people’. I am able to listen and guide people to ensure their next job opportunity is the best suited to them.
Best In Class Ltd, tailor all aspects of a role specifically to each person’s needs, which in turn helps people stay in work for longer and ensures children receive the best education possible.

I’m also lucky to be able to support Best in Class through our marketing and social media, which ranges from the blogs where I reveal my most embarrassing education failures, or our TikTok’s which are maybe better left unspoken about! As an English and History graduate, I am thrilled to get to use both the analytical and creative aspects of my personality to best benefit our candidates and clients, and ensure that all of our team can continue to deliver our Best in Class service!
