Advance your career?

Whether you are looking for a new role, your first position in education or to advance your career, you have come to the right place. We have many years experience of placing candidates nationwide into a wide variety of roles – both temporary and permanent - across the Secondary, Further Education and Commercial Training sectors.

Providing excellence

We have an extensive partnership network of secondary schools, further education colleges and commercial training providers. Many of these work with us on an exclusive basis, meaning in many instances we are first to be briefed about roles, giving you the best opportunity to be first introduced to the client.

Our consultants are not generalists. They work in subject specific areas so you will always be connected with the right market specialist for you. They are here to provide recruitment excellence and help you succeed. So not only will they present you with some of the best opportunities around, they will also be happy to share updates into local and nationwide market trends, give you tips on CV writing and advise how to best prepare for your interview.

Our approach is first to listen and learn: we need to get to know you, to understand you, what motivates you and to get some insight into your future career aspirations. Only once we understand all this, can we start work to best deliver for you and align your skills and attributes with what a potential employer is looking for. We will be proactive in our efforts, always looking to present you with multiple options and will discuss in detail any suitable opportunities, providing guidance and support throughout.

Let's get to know you

Our promise

Regular communication

We believe communication is the essential part of excellent customer service, so rest assured we will provide regular updates throughout the recruitment process.


We will be completely transparent with you about your suitability for roles and vacancies and promise to provide constructive feedback.

Exclusive roles

For some positions we offer the best or sometimes only route to interview.

New teachers

We engage in open days and events to help new and aspiring teachers achieve their goal.


We specialise in education recruitment and make it our priority to understand and remain on top of industry developments and changes, specifically regarding the vetting requirements necessary for all placements we arrange.

Our processes ensure both ours and our client’s compliance with legislative obligations. This in part is achieved by completing a number of standard checks on our candidates. By accepting assignments through Edgware Associates, you will agree to providing our dedicated vetting team certain verbal declarations and written confirmation to confirm your suitability and eligibility for the role.

For further information, please refer to our Safeguarding page or call our Vetting Team on 0344 477 9273 who will be happy to answer any questions.

"Edgware has been a great representative for me and a pleasure to work with. They have been conscientious in the whole approach of my journey from first contact to placement and have always been there to answer any queries. They stand alone as my sole recruitment agency and I now consider my consultant a personal friend as well as a professional contact."

Graham | Construction Lecturer, Yorkshire

"I joined a number of agencies after resigning from a permanent post as a SENCO in a mainstream school at the end of last term. I've only ever been in permanent positions before, so seeking a role through an agency has been something new for me. A number of agencies called, but were often pushy and rushed in their manner. My experience with Edgware was immediately different – always highly professional, calm and courteous."

Carol | SENCO, Kent

"The overall experience with Edgware Associates was exceptional; the swiftness in finding a position and securing the desired salary was impressive. Smooth and efficient."

Leon | Maths Teacher, London

"All through the process Edgware kept in touch and up to date with progress, which includes the Back Office Vetting Team too. All of them have been extremely professional, very helpful and have kept the whole thing fun. I would certainly recommend anyone to use your company - the whole process was professional, comfortable and straight-forward."

Allan | Electrical Lecturer, Hampshire

I want to take this moment to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunities and experiences that I have had during my time at the college. I have been honoured to work with such a talented and dedicated team.


l am grateful for the support and guidance that l received. I have learned so much and have grown in so many ways during my time here.


I thank you so much once again for the opportunity, thank you.

Dr. Kanos | Lecturer, FE College, Bedfordshire | May 2024

"Edgware was pro-active in securing me my ideal permanent role in middle management. I’m very grateful for the efforts they made. They maintained contact at all stages and acted as my advocate and representative against a lot of competition. Thank you."

Lily | Health & Social Care Assessor, London
