319Reach Education is our response to the need for high calibre and effective recruitment solutions within the Education Market.

Extensive local knowledge combined with an office network based in Rotherham & Sheffield allows Reach Education to meet stringent ‘Care & Commitment’ ideals in line with the DFE guidelines. This commitment is underpinned by Reach Education providing access to 17 online Safeguarding courses via Educare.

Our staff are mature, with over 23 YEARS EXPERIENCE within an environment that puts the needs of our customers, both candidates & schools, before the quest to maximise ‘margins’ or increase ‘bookings filled’ .

We hope that if you need help within our core areas of expertise, including Teaching Assistants, Nursery Nurses, School Support and SEN, you will grow to rely upon and value our efforts.

Whilst Reach Education may not aspire to be the biggest recruitment company in the country & perhaps there are other providers who share our vision and determination, we are proud of our values and hope that with every phone call, every booking, every request that we answer, our reputation will grow.
