    Charley Alexander – Branch Manager

    After 6 years in Education Recruitment as a Leader, I moved over to Engage Education and opened the Leeds office in March 2021. I am proud to say that with the support and guidance of the Engage Leaders and directors I have managed to create a large office of 11 consultants and managers with plenty of opportunities still on the horizon for new starters and leaders. I am humbled to have created a hard-working and dynamic team of specialist recruiters who take pride in their work in the 360 role. Creating Engage Education Leeds from a start-up office has been hard work but rewarding for both myself and my staff and I hope to continue to grow our brand in the West Yorkshire area. Here at Engage Education Leeds, we strive to secure ideal roles for our candidates and ideal candidates for our school and we work hard to support all of our candidates from start to finish. 

    Joel foskett – team manager

    I am currently a team leader at Engage Education and coming up to my 10th year at the company. Before joining the company,  I was unsure of what I wanted to do career-wise but knew I wanted to be in a fun, social, and energetic environment, with the capacity to learn and grow quickly. Fortunately for me, this is exactly what Engage was able to provide. I progressed quickly with the excellent training and support provided, and soon moved my way up to a Senior Consultant within 2 years (Having had no prior experience before joining). Go forward another 2 years, and I found myself sharing the knowledge I had learned with junior members of staff, as a Team leader. During this time, the company has won countless awards, grown massively across the UK, and become the lead Education recruitment company within the sector. 

    There are so many reasons to want to work here. The people at Engage are fantastic, whether you are one of the directors, or the newest person through the door, you are treated with the same level of respect as one another. We are fortunate enough to work in a lovely new and modern office environment. Office treats are provided daily. The drinks fridge is fully stocked. There is a darts and table tennis table for consultants to enjoy during lunch / after work. The rewards and incentives for both teams and individuals here are excellent. There is regular and ongoing training and support available with senior staff always on hand and happy to help. The list goes on.
    I can wholeheartedly recommend working at Engage and look forward to what the next 10 years hold for the company.

    Joseph weeden – South East and Kent Education Manager

    I have been at Engage Education for two and a half years previously working as a recruitment consultant within the Rec2Rec sector, as well as a Retail Team Leader having come out of University with a degree in Psychology. After joining Engage, I felt extremely welcomed by everyone and was made to feel part of the Engage family very quickly with everyone offering their support and advice. It was very clear early on how Engage is ‘all in this together’ and I bought into it straight away and couldn’t wait to get started.

    I thoroughly enjoy my time at Engage, I love knowing that we are always striving for more. We are always thinking of new ways that we can help service and support our candidates and clients and grow as a company. The tools at our disposal are like no other and rank Engage above the rest.
