justteachers loveisland celebration day

Justteachers, a specialist recruiter for Education, was established in Skipton in 2005 at a local Mill and has since grown to be a leading local employer within the region and beyond. The award-winning business moved to new Head office premises this year at Belle Vue Square and employs over 40 of their 70 staff at their Skipton site. They are expanding across all three of their offices and are currently recruiting for Trainee Recruitment Consultants and Recruitment Consultants (Skipton, Coventry and Prestwich) and also a New Business Executive (Skipton).

A little about the people at justteachers…….

The Managing Director, Caroline Cafferty, has been with justteachers for 18 years and began her career as a Consultant herself. Most of the senior leaders are working mums and with over 58% of the workforce having 5 years plus service, it is clear that creating a positive working environment is of paramount importance to them. This is why they have entered and been awarded Great Place to Work® status for the last 5 years.

There are many reasons why their staff retention is so successful and over the last 5 years justteachers have worked incredibly hard to make sure their employees are heard and know that their feedback is valuable.

Caroline Cafferty explains her decision to be audited by Great Place to Work®, who are the global authority on workplace culture.

“At justteachers we have worked tirelessly to invest everything we can into our employees, as without them, we would not be the success story that we are today. Our wellbeing programme is something I am particularly proud of and indicative about the importance we place on maintaining a healthy work/life balance. The benefits include:

  • 39 days annual leave (inclusive of bank holidays and your birthday day off.)
  • Reduced working hours of 9am-3pm during the school holidays at full pay (which amounts to 2 weeks additional annual leave across the year!)
  • An Employee Assist Programme to include free counselling sessions
  • Extended wellbeing lunch break
  • Wellbeing Mental Health Champions available for on-site support

We also have formal Career Progression Development programmes in place, to recognise our employees and their desire to develop and grow within the business. We launched our  ‘Milestones to Management Academy’ 18-month programme in 2020, which has been a huge success thus far and we are very much looking forward to welcoming a new cohort of staff again this year.

These are just a few of the many employee initiatives we have implemented in the last few years and in doing so I am incredibly proud of the justteachers family in being recognised and officially certified for the last 5 years as a UK’s Best Workplaces™, awarded by Great Place to Work®. This is a huge achievement and testament to our ongoing commitment to employee wellbeing.

Gaining the Great Place to Work® accolade requires the ability of our business to be adaptable and flexible. There’s real gold in receiving wellbeing suggestions from our loyal employees, enabling us to continually improve our workplace by providing them with an anonymous voice in a safe environment. We not only listen to, but value what our employees have to say and are grateful that time has been taken to help us continually make improvements to our workplace culture.

Being a great workplace is more than lavish perks, fancy parties and amazing benefits – that is only a small part of it. At its core a great workplace is about the level of trust that our employees experience in justteachers leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs; and the extent to which they experience camaraderie with their colleagues.
