  • positive review  I signed up with Clarus a few months ago. They’re great agency, very supportive and great. They were very helpful in finding roles that suited my needs and supportive of my aspirations. Before trial days, my consultant would give me a call to make sure I was ready and give tips and advice and was generally very engaging and encouraging in supporting me as an individual. I’d recommend Clarus Education, especially if you are interested in working in special education needs schools.

  • 5 star review  I am so happy that I applied to Clarus Education as they have been helpful since the very beginning. In particular, Kelvin Fortune, my consultant. He is truly a caring and hardworking person and from the first time we met he has made sure that I was consistently informed and kept up to date regarding suitable schools that I could work in. Kelvin approach was to find a suitable school that would reflect my personal goals and also placed me at a school with a good location. He has been helpful throughout the entire process and I really appreciated him getting in touch with me before and after my trial day, to provide me with useful advice in order to make my very best impression. Clarus Education is an excellent organization and I have now landed a new job all because of Kelvin continued support and reassurance and for that I am very grateful.

I am so thankful for their help, in particular George Mair, who has been incredibly helpful and thorough throughout the whole recruitment process. He went that extra mile to find the perfect job role and continued to offer support and check how everything was going once I had secured the job. I would highly recommend Clarus Education.
