  • positive review  Shevonnae and Clarus Education were so helpful with helping me securing a placement within a few weeks which has now turned into a permanent position at a school. The help I received preparing for my trial day and interview was phenomenal and would definitely recommend this company for anyone who wants to use an agency!

  • 5 star review  Thank you so much to both Ali and George for helping me secure my TA position! From the beginning they were both very clear and patient with me as I told them what I was looking. Although George took over halfway the handover was seamless and worked incredibly well. They were both very encouraging about my competence for the position and I received very clear and details advice about the interview process. I always felt incredibly comfortable talking on the phone to both - two very friendly, funny and hard working individuals! I am looking forward to starting my position in September and will definitely be recommending Clarus to anyone wanting to go into education :)

  • 5 star review  Clarus Education have been amazing. George Mair worked with me and found me the exact role I was looking for really quickly. I'm really happy with the role, and the service with Clarus Education was really professional, honest, efficient, friendly, and I was always informed of updates to the process. George was so genuine and wanted to find me a role which I'd be settled and happy in. I couldn't thank them enough - will definitely be recommending to others!
