Managing Director

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…!!

Meet the Manchester crew!

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.

Shannon Duffy

Education Consultant

New to the Manchester office, Shannon is originally a southerner. She has lived up north for nearly 5 years now, moving up to study English Literature at university like every other graduate with a passion for reading. After finishing, she realised she couldn’t leave this great city. Even though she lives up north, she spends her weekends travelling up and down the country. You might catch her on a train book in hand and headphones in, although at 5’2 probably not! Now that her journey has begun with Clarus, she looks forward to helping other graduates and teachers with their career aspirations too. New to recruitment, she cannot wait to learn the ropes!
