Why recruit a sports graduate?
On average, most independent schools are now recruiting more than one sports graduate every year, which has resulted in the industry being very unpredictable and unstable, with schools now struggling to recruit the right high-quality candidates they need.
Recruiting sports graduates is an economical solution to increasing both coaching power and expertise as well as assisting in key areas with schools, such as: pastoral duties, driving minibuses, lead coaching, officiating matches, tutoring and being a vital role model to the children.
A good sports graduate is worth their weight in gold and will fully embrace life within your school as a full-time member of staff, taking on considerable responsibility and bringing modern coaching practices, skills and energy into your sports department.
Over recent years, the recruiting of sport graduates has overtaken the old school model of recruiting “gappies” out of school, who are far too young to take on considerable responsibility.
With over 15 years of recruitment expertise and over 1,000 full-time placements throughout the UK, we have the industry knowledge to do all the hard work for you and to make recruiting sport graduates a stress-free process.
