what is Responsible Recruitment

Why choosing Recruit Mint Education is the smart choice for NQTs sourcing a working role in education.


To cut to the chase, we are recruiting NQTs. If you are a NQT, you should start consdiering applying for your first placement in September now. Whilst completing their study, let us do the hard work for you – contact Recruit Mint Education today for placement and recuitment options. Here is what we can do for you…


What is Responsible Recruitment?

The purpose of ‘Responsible Recruitment’ is to make the recruitment process straightforward and hassle-free. Its aim is to ensure a positive experience for employees and employers within the job finding and hiring process, where before, there were no such practices set in place.

Supporting good practice for businesses in recruitment means addressing issues within recruitment and making sure you’re suitable for the jobs you’re applying for. It also is set up to eradicate irresponsible recruitment; from seeing the removal of unethical recruitment companies to not charging fees for finding the employee work.

For more information, Sedex Global have an informative piece to help summarise the guidelines.


Recruit Mint Education and Responsible Recruitment

Here are some examples of best practices in recruitment that we at Recruit Mint Education follow to make life easier for our clients:

Ensuring all jobs online are up to date

We take time to understand each role we put up on our website and on job boards so we not only understand the recruiter’s needs, but also that the role requires in order to field your questions and work with you to ensure you are best suited to the role. Not only that, but we frequently update the roles should any criteria change so the latest information is always available. No copy and pasting in sight. As an NQT, you need to ensure that the roles you apply for are suited to your training and experience as a teacher so that you find a placement in line with your career goals. 

Closing expired jobs so you’re not wasting time

It’s common to visit a jobs board online and see the same role advertised several times on the same page.  It’s even more common to be interested in a job, as you scroll down to apply, realise the closing date was two weeks ago, especially in the months leading to summer when many newly qualified teachers are applying for jobs. Recruit Mint Education makes sure this never happens – by staying up-to-date with all our jobs, we are aware of when they close and promptly remove them from your view so you’re not wasting your time and only access active and current vacancies.

Providing feedback to help your confidence in your job hunt

A key component in recruitment is seeing a candidate as more than just a name. We make it our prerogative to not only get you into work, but get you into a job that blossoms a career where you are best suited. Not only that but we listen to feedback from businesses in order to guide you in having the most success you can in interviews. Finding your first role as an NQT can be daunting so we’ll make sure you stay motivated and receive feedback to help you on your job hunt. 

We prosper in an enabling environment and relish in supporting the development and implementation of our candidates. Will you be next?
