WorkinSchools is a professional and social network for people who work in schools, colleges and universities. Any person or organisation in the education sector can join the network and have a profile page.
Our mission statement
"To provide a free, alternative and unique recruitment and networking solution to schools and people working in education at a local, national and international level. Conducting ourselves in a right and proper, fair and courteous manner at all times as we obtain and maintain the respect and confidence of our peers and working partners."
The network has four main user groups School Staff, Schools, Recruitment Agencies and other education bodies. Membership for state schools and schools staff (anyone working within an education organisation) is totally free. Independent schools, Recruitment agencies and other bodies are charged a small membership fee to be on the network.
The social side of the network allows members to use all the tools they can find in other social networks such as Instant messenger and status updates. We recognise that school staff are discouraged to or do not wish to join the same social networks as pupils. WorkinSchools is a pupil free zone where people who work in schools can interact freely with other like minded members can socialise, talk shop, share resources, and make new friends.
Schools and recruitment agencies can also promote themselves as organisations and communicate with staff either individually or as a whole.
The network can also be used as professional site to network, recruit and search for career opportunities. As part of their membership Schools and education recruitment companies can advertise jobs on the network. WorkinSchools incorporates a sophisticated engine that can target/match jobs and jobseekers on the network offering efficient results for both recruiters and those seeking a new career. The network has excellent tools for both permanent and temporary recruitment solutions at value for money to the organisations that use it.
The WorkinSchools website has been set up to provide a safe and secure environment for teachers and all staff in schools to socialise away from pupils. It also provides an excellent recruitment service for those that wish to use it. We ask all our members whether they are school staff, schools or recruitment agencies to respect each other when using the site, and most of all we hope that WorkinSchools is an enjoyable and useful website experience for all our members.
