Education recruitment


The right teaching and early childhood staff can turn any setting into a centre of excellence and world-class education. That’s why we deliver to our clients the very best early childhood staff, out of school hours staff, vacation care staff and teachers for primary and secondary schools.

We work closely with the independent, not-for-profit, private and state sectors in Australia. While each state and territory across Australia has different employment processes in place, our recruiting expertise allows us to meet these processes and deliver exceptional education staff. At Hays Education we never lose sight of our responsibility in safeguarding children, which is at the heart of everything we do.

We source qualified teachers to work in independent, Catholic and government schools throughout Australia. We also recruit school leadership positions up to school principal level. Whether you have a permanent role, a block booking or a casual role, we’ll connect the right person to your teaching jobs. We also recruit teachers for colleges and further education as well as educational professionals for independent and public sector organisations.

We offer schools one point of contact, fully cleared teachers through our stringent procedures and an honest, expert and professional service from experienced consultants. For block bookings and permanent vacancies, we take a thorough job specification to enable us to match the right person to the job.
