We asked Dan and Gemma to tell us a bit about themselves
I hold a Level 3 Certificate in Recruitment Practice and have worked in education recruitment since 2014, mainly in the primary sector.
In addition to this, some of my family members have disabilities, and I have seen first-hand the positive impact that comes with finding well-trained and appropriately suited support staff to work with them on a regular basis.
It is this combination of personal and professional experience which drew me to working with Axcis Education Recruitment. I am passionate about finding the right candidates who can make a similar impact on the children we ultimately support with the work we do.
I believe that the key to doing this successfully is through understanding the needs of the provisions I work with, and this is done by visiting schools, discussing needs in detail and taking the time to listen carefully to both my candidates and clients alike.
I have been working in education recruitment since 2018, and am passionate about the importance of matching excellent teaching and support staff to the schools and provisions with which I work.
I hold a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification and have spent six months in France, where I taught English at a school for children with disabilities.
During this time, I experienced how rewarding working with special needs can be, and I saw what a difference that the “right” teacher can make and how they can have a positive impact the students they work with. This was, in part what attracted me to apply for a role with Axcis Education.
I now work with both mainstream and specialist schools across the South West, helping them to find special needs teaching and support staff who can bring compassion, diligence and positivity to the provisions in which I place them.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading, helping animal charities, spending time with family and friends and travelling.
