Managing Director

Camden, Islington & Barnet

Like most graduates, I paid a small fortune to complete a degree, to then venture into the real world with no clue on what I wanted to do as a first job, never mind a career!!

I was a confident and outgoing 22 year old who could talk for Britain (and still can)…recruitment seemed the perfect fit.

12 Years on, I’m not only still recruiting but Clarus Education has been born. Along with my partner in crime, we have built Clarus into a leading Education Recruitment Consultancy, which genuinely adds value to UK schools’ recruitment process and provides an exceptional service.

Proud does not begin to describe how fantastic our team of consultants and compliance are. We are breaking the mould and will continue to do what we do best…!!

Lead Consultant

Phil has worked for over 6 years in education recruitment – finding permanent and long term opportunities for senior leaders, teachers and teaching assistants. This long term interaction with schools, teachers, SEN support workers and future leaders has given Phil a good comprehension of the challenge that is faced in today’s school system. He has always envied the passion that teachers can demonstrate when discussing their career… and he often feels like he could have made a decent teacher himself but shied away from a return to University. He has recently married and plans to spend the second half of his life perfecting his skills in the kitchen and raising a brood of children to challenge the next generation of teachers.  Phil is always keen to speak with trainee and experienced teachers or teaching assistants and learn more about the field of education.
