Benefits of a recruitment agency”

In May 2018, the Data Protection Act will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A key change is enhanced accountability for organisations that handle personal data. One of these accountabilities is the requirement of public authorities to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), including all maintained schools and academies.

With 56 academies, REAch2 is England’s largest primary only academy chain. In this case study, HR Officer Sandhya Aurokium explains how ESP supports her to recruit education experts for their central office in Burton upon Trent.

“Not only is the process better value, it is so much easier and more effective than recruiting ourselves. We’ve employed very high quality candidates that we couldn’t have found. Nick [from ESP] spends time to really understand the kind of people we are looking for and works closely with the candidates to ensure we are a good fit for each other. Once in post, he visits them to ensure everyone is happy. Nick is responsive and professional, offering a complete service.” Liz Elam, Principal
