New Directions Education has been embedded within the community since 1999. Our business continues to grow from strength-to-strength annually. As well as traditional recruitment for the education sector, we offer a bi-lingual service with our Welsh language medium desk, which now accounts for 10% of our overall business.
We also set up an in-house training team in direct response to the very real needs of the education personnel we work in partnership with. Our links with ASCL and the NAHT have further strengthened our capabilities to provide the right service, the first time to both our candidates and clients.
Our Latest Testimonial
I have been working for New Directions for over 2 years and my Account Manager Gemma has been an approachable and friendly point of contact. I felt I could approach her with any issues that I had. Gemma regularly contacted me for feedback about the schools I was asked to supply in and always made sure I was happy in the schools I was asked to cover. New Directions always provided me with a good range of work. They always tried to take into consideration the travel distance and tried to fit the work around my preference of age range and preferred schools. I am grateful to Gemma and New Directions for providing me with long term supply which turned into a contract from the school. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for New Directions. I would definitely recommend New Directions.
