Our team at SEN Recruitment are specialists in SEND and are “dedicated to all things special needs” We aim to get to know our clients and their needs in order to add value to our schools and support them in sourcing candidates with the skills, talent and personality to work in a specialist field. We understand that SEND is a niche area within education and it isn’t for everyone, therefore we aim to gain as much information on the needs of children and the requirements for the role in order to source the best suited candidates. From a candidate perspective, our candidates are important to us and we provide them with a career in a role they are passionate about. Our core values are key to our relationships and success and we are privileged to work in such a specialised field”

The SEN Recruitment service starts with a visit to your school to understand the needs of the children and the School. This allows us to learn about your school and your needs to ensure we can provide the most suitable candidate.

The selection process is tailored to the individual school and is backed up by all the safeguards you’d expect in a leading SEN recruitment consultancy in line with the conduct regulations and DFE guidelines.

Clients put their trust in us and strong relationships develop. As a result, the SEN Recruitment process has been designed in consultation with, and approved by our clients sharing the focus being the children and meeting their needs.

This is what clients have to say about SEN Recruitment: “Our partnership is immensely successful because of the time and thought the team at SEN gives to understanding the needs of our children.”

We recruit candidates who specialise in working with children with a range of special needs including SPLD, ASC, ESBD, ADHD, MLD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Medical Needs and Mental Health.

We have a range of roles and opportunities including full-time, part-time, day-to-day cover, long-term, short-term, temporary contract or permanent. Candidates are sourced from various jobs boards and word of mouth within the SEND sector and our bespoke recruitment process ensures that we have assessed them as being a good fit for the role.
