TES HireWire: Transforming school recruitment The feedback says it all

TES HireWire is a completely free online recruitment service that is revolutionising the way schools recruit. From placing an advertisement to making a successful appointment, TES HireWire supports the entire process, saving schools time, money and resources. The service also helps schools communicate quickly and effectively with candidates, helping them to recruit the best teachers and staff. Following the successful launch of TES HireWire by TSL Education earlier this year, the company reports overwhelming feedback from users about the positive impact the service is having in their schools.

What schools have been saying so far...

"TES HireWire is an exciting service that is already having a hugely positive impact on our recruitment. It provides us with a real competitive edge in terms of getting back to all candidates quickly and efficiently."
David Crowe, headteacher, The Boswells School, Chelmsford

"TES HireWire is a fantastic initiative and the customer support is second to none."
Ruth Cousins, PA to headteacher, Bay House School, Gosport

"It's now so easy to automatically email unsuccessful applicants, something that was so time-consuming previously. In fact, we've had emails from those individuals thanking us for taking the time to let them know, so I'm pleased it's promoting the schools as an efficient and caring employer."
Monica Cross, headteacher, St Matthew Academy, Lewisham

"I'd certainly recommend it to other schools."
Helen Edwards, PA to the headteacher, Tiffin School, Kingston

"It has been thrilling to be involved in the development of this new recruitment tool. As a headteacher I can see the benefits of the web service at all stages of the recruitment process. The developers have really taken our ideas on board when creating this service."
Rob Earrey headteacher Fitzjohn's, Camden

"TES have worked hard with experienced school leaders, absorbing their views and their experience, and I'm sure the care they've taken has resulted in something that will enable education professionals to focus on finding the best possible teachers for their schools."
Gerald Haigh, former headteacher and governor

"The online application form is very easy to use and saved a lot of time in the short-listing process. Not having to print all the applications was a relief!"
