Specialist recruitment agency appoints new resourcer to support growth

20 February 2015

A Yorkshire-based specialist recruitment agency has taken on an additional member of staff to help meet growing demand for its services.

Provide Education has appointed Zoe Griffin to the new post of company resourcer.

Her key focus will be to step up the agency’s recruitment of job candidates to work in schools across Yorkshire and the East Midlands.

Director of Provide Education Katie Buckle said: “Zoe is an experienced resourcer and will play a vital role in helping us to sign up more high-quality job candidates to the company’s books.

“We have created this new post in response to growing demand for our services as we handle an increasing number of enquiries from schools. We need to plan ahead to ensure we continue to deliver the high level of service our schools expect from us and are able to place high quality staff whenever and wherever required.”

Provide Education is an education recruitment agency which offers a 24-hour rapid response service to help schools in West and South Yorkshire and the East Midlands fill supply and permanent job vacancies.

Provide currently has more than 2,000 teachers, teaching assistants, cover supervisors, nursery nurses and school support staff on its books and works with more than 500 schools.

Zoe joins a staff of 17 and will work across Provide Education’s three branch offices in Brighouse, Barnsley and Worksop. She will be based in Brighouse, at the company’s newly expanded office in Thornhill Brigg Mills.

Katie said: “Zoe has more than seven years’ experience working in the recruitment sector and has extensive experience of running advertising campaigns, headhunting and sourcing excellent candidates to suit job vacancies.

“At Provide, we are determined to sign up the best candidates in the education sector and it is great to have Zoe on board. She is already working closely with education consultants across our three branch offices to co-ordinate our on-going recruitment drive.”

Provide Education has seen year-on-year business growth since it was established in 2007 and has doubled its turnover and staff numbers within the last three years.
