We are continuing with our series showcasing our amazing i-teachers’ consultants and their stories! Our i-teachers family are passionate about making a difference within education and all have their own fantastic journey to share.
This week, meet Pippa! Pippa is our Education Consultant covering the East London area. Pippa has recruited for both international and UK based education roles and is driven by making a positive impact on schools. In her spare time, she likes to travel, explore new cultures and keep active!
Tell us a bit about you and your history!
“I have worked in recruitment since graduating in 2016, starting in Health and Social Care and moving to international and UK based school recruitment. I have always been a determined and independent person and moved to Manchester in 2016 to study American Studies and stayed ever since! I was born and raised in London and love that I am able to support London based schools whilst living it up with my Northern colleagues!”
Why did you choose recruitment as a career?
“I chose to start a career in recruitment because I thrive in a people focused environment and love being able to support people finding their ideal roles! I have always been passionate about children receiving the same level of support regardless of their socio-economic background and this is why I thrive recruiting within the education sector. It is really rewarding finding exceptional support for pupils to ensure there are no barriers to their brilliance!”
What do you enjoy most about working at i-teachers?
“The team at i-teachers is fantastic! I joined i-teachers in July last year and was on boarded completely remotely. I was so overwhelmed by how welcoming everyone was and how much of an effort they all made to get to know and support me in my first few weeks! It is still crazy to think I’ve only physically worked with the team for a couple of weeks but despite this I truly feel like part of the i-teachers family.
I also love how much we celebrate everyone’s strengths within the company and collaborate on projects. There really is space for your ideas to make an impact and we actively listen to one another and our schools. The focus on consulting with clients and having an impact on shaping the support pupils really makes the job meaningful. It has also been fantastic seeing how our Step into Teaching programme has helped graduates and secured them places on teacher training for next year.”
