i-teachers – Our Core Values

19/03/2021 | All

Recently, the i-teachers team has been considering their core values and how these core values align with their roles within i-teachers. We took the time to reflect on our own individual values, our business values and why these values are so important to us. In understanding our values in greater detail, we can better understand how to use these to positively impact our clients in our role as education recruitment consultants. Having shared values can be an amazing way of building a relationship with the candidates and clients we work with!

Education recruitment specialists with innovation at the heart of all we do

We started by considering what our core business values are. Here at i-teachers, we focus our values around the way in which we work. This is not ‘what’ we do, but instead ‘how’ we do it. 

The uniqueness of our team of expert education recruitment consultants is built upon our framework, focusing on long-term solutions that add value and provide exceptional service. As an education recruitment business, our attention is completely dedicated to listening to what schools actually need and working tirelessly to build amazing teaching and school support staff teams. 

We hold strong values about improving outcomes for pupils by working to combat teacher shortages in schools by improving the overall quality of appointments. As education recruitment consultants, we want to be different from others in our sector. So we work to be innovative and put the care of our schools and teaching staff at the very heart of everything we do. 

Building on our personal values

We then reflected on our personal values and why they are so important to us. Collectively, we identified our key values as individuals, with common themes such as passion, individuality and loyalty. 

It became clear that the individual values held by the team here at i-teachers are what makes us a collaborative and cohesive family of education recruiters, all working towards a common goal. The pure dedication of every team member allows us to bring passion to every task at hand and is how we action our unique framework. The loyalty valued so heavily by each team member is displayed through the time and effort put into every placement. Without our individual dedication, enthusiasm and resilience – would i-teachers be where we are today?

Finally, we took time to think about how the values we have can positive impact the candidates and clients that we deal with. A common value shared by the i-teachers team is transparency, with honesty and integrity being a frequently coined term. 

By holding this value, we easily build trusting and long-term relationships with the graduates, teachers and Senior Leaders we work with every day  as education recruitment consultants. Another core value common throughout the team is positivity. The positivity of the i-teachers team is easily seen by the passion shared throughout the whole business. Our i-teachers experts strive to have a positive long-term impact on schools. Every individual in our team is passionate about placing the right person to the right role, adding value and improving pupil outcomes.

Upon reflection, it became clear to us just how widely shared our values as a business and individuals really are. Our values at i-teachers really are at the heart of everything we do as education recruiters and are what gives us our own unique ‘personality’. Have you reflected on your core values recently? Do they align to the rest of your team?
