A strong, enthusiastic and cohesive team of staff members is what makes Always Flourishing not only a fantastic place to work but fully able to support all of our schools and teachers.
We have such a diverse mix of illuminating personalities who each have a significant drive and passion for giving their very best to all professionals in the Education sector.
We've been incredibly lucky to secure two new fantastic consultants who will be working closely with Secondary and Independent schools across the Home Counties. But, before we introduce them to you, we'd like to announce that one of our longest serving employees and Secondary specialist, Laura Arnott has been promoted to the role of Senior Consultant.
Laura has been with the company since it was first established and has single handily developed and grown the successful secondary branch. With an innovative and fresh approach to retaining the relationship between both clients and candidates, Laura has been instrumental in creating new and exciting ways to offer her support, guidance and expertise to an array of individuals.
Laura also helped launch our launched a termly networking event 'Cover Club' for school recruitment associates as a means of discussing best practice and individual needs for organising teachers on a supply basis as well as working with agencies. The event proved so successful that they were able to replicate it in various counties within the Thames Valley.
We'd like to wish Laura the best of luck in her new position!
In addition to this, we'd like to give a warm welcome to Alex Nigbur who will be supporting Laura on the Secondary desk. He is joined by our other new recruit Sophie Appleton Wyeth who will be responsible for our Independent school division.
Alex comes from a recruitment and customer service background and he greatly understand the needs of both candidates and clients and how to build long lasting, positive relationships. Upon joining Alex stated,
''Always Flourishing has allowed me to entwine both skills and passion to build a career that is both challenging and enjoyable. It is my desire to help other people find the correct career and calling in life and it gives me immense satisfaction knowing I have made a difference in a candidate's life but also contributing to the next generation's education'.
Sophie is a former teacher at Dulwich Prep London and has also worked in an international school, over a period of six years. With extensive experience covering Preparatory and Independent Secondary Schools, Sophie was and still remains passionate about facilitating the Independent Sector whole-child approach to education.
'All my experience uses the same fundamental skill; that of building and maintaining positive, meaningful relationships with people. I look forward to utilising this expertise at Always Flourishing'. We are confident that both Sophie and Alex will add another layer of success and inspiration to the Always Flourishing team. 2017 is already looking to be a fantastic year for all of us at Always Flourishing and we can't wait to see what the year holds.
