At Maxwell & Sloane we strive to provide both candidates and clients with proactive communication, competence and honest advice. We help support a number of Schools in the United Kingdom and the Middle East, by supplying Qualified and Special Education Needs Teachers and we furthermore support Paediatric Therapy Centres, with their recruitment needs in relation to Occupational and Speech therapists. By having our reach internationally, this allows us access to some of the best talent globally. With our extended open hours from Sunday till Friday, this equips us with a further edge over other agencies and helps create even more relationships with candidates and clients out there. Our success so far, has been our personal approach and ethos of Quality above Quantity.
We believe that the function of a Recruitment Agency is two-fold;
In defining the first point – we feel that the service we provide in relation to around the clock communication, advertising, marketing literature for the client and head-hunting the right candidates – speaks for itself. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on finding a majority of qualified and experienced candidates of motivated job-seekers who had not necessarily considered an international move or even dormant job-seekers, which of whom are not actively looking, but once introduced to a job opportunity – are open to the possibilities. This allows us, along with our database, to provide the best calibre candidates and deliver a quality service in the sectors that we serve.
To elaborate on the second point – we find that it is paramount to be fully informed on the company we work with and the role we are required to fill, along with basics such as entitlements and packages. Without important and basic information – this can become futile and time-wasting. Therefore we are selective of the clients we work with, just as we are with our candidates.
Finding a new role can be quite an exciting and daunting process. If you have been doing it for a while – it can be quite tedious, to say the least. At Maxwell & Sloane - we pride ourselves on our communication and feedback. Furthermore, we find that honest advice and clarity can go a long way. Before we put you forward for a suitable role, we will disclose all details (provided to us) about the role – so you are fully informed about what you are going forward for and this will give you the best chance at application/interview stage. We shall also give you advice and suggestions on your CV – as this can be the make or break of getting an interview request. We will then guide you through the process of pre and post interview – up till the day you have the job and furthermore check in with you periodically, thereafter. Growing relationships with people, is what makes us tick!
We deal specifically with teachers who hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and/or who have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from a varied range of subjects.

“Being my first time going to the Middle East, never mind working there, I was provided with constant advice and support throughout the process.
