REED Education is a division of REED that was founded over 20 years ago and now has 35 offices across England and Wales. They work in partnership with thousands of schools and Local Authorities to find teachers their perfect roles.

REED have been using the Shine platform since 2017, spanning across their multiple divisions and putting it to all different uses. One division of Reed which is utilising video interviewing is Reed Education.

Sourcing candidates at universities and recruitment fares, they’re asked very specific questions around their teaching capabilities and their true motivation to relocate to the UK. Getting a better idea of how each teacher will operate in the classroom than you would from a CV!

“Our results this year from the Canadian project have more than doubled from last year, and a large part of this increase is due to using Shine Technology.

There has absolutely been a positive return on investment, and we are now looking at how we can replicate this with other recruitment campaigns with Shine to get the same results.”

David Anderson, Senior Regional Manager, REED Education

REED Education is one of the specialist sectors of REED.

One of the UK’s fastest growing education recruitment agencies, with a database of over 1,000,000 education professionals, they work with the best quality temporary and permanent staff – using their local expertise to help you fill your next position.

Taking their search further afield, REED Education travelled overseas to Canada equipped with the Shine platform to conduct video interviews with newly qualified teachers, to find them placements in UK schools.

Why Canada? Every year Canada produces a surplus of excellent standard, newly qualified teachers who aren’t able to gain permanent teaching roles in their communities.
