Our Time at the Teacher Recruitment Fair – UWTSD

We we’re invited to attend the Teacher Recruitment Fair at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Swansea yesterday! We had a great time chatting to the students about joining our agency and also just gave them general advice on how to get their foot even further in the door within the profession. Here are a few snaps of Jess having a chat to some lovely folk! Oh, and how lovely do our new banners look?! We’re just ever so slightly in love with them.

Social Media and Your Career

Sometimes it can be easy to forget how helpful social media is when it comes to shaping your career but also how effective it is as a tool to help you connect to that career. We’ve recently done a visit to University South Wales, where we were invited to chat about this topic to their BA Primary students. So, we came up with an insight on how to make the most out of social media and thought we would share the basics to the rest of you guys too! Read on to learn about branding yourself online and building your social media network. Most of us use social media on a daily basis. We’ve basically become obsessed with the thing, so it would be pretty rude not to use it to its fullest of advantages- right?




Although traditional job boards such as Reed and Indeed are a great way to job hunt, there is an enormous growth in recruiters resourcing candidates through social media platforms. Did you know that 92% of companies use social media to hire? Oh, and that 3 out of 4 managers check the candidate’s social media profiles? This study carried out by The Muse (2017) pretty much sums up the reason why you should make sure you’ve got your social media up to scratch!
