Eteach, which currently has almost half a million candidates including heads, teachers and support staff registered on its site, aims to demonstrate that schools are currently spending around £100m too much each year on recruitment.
At present, the education recruitment specialist works with 30 per cent of all schools, 50 per cent of further education colleges and 65 local authorities. The company also recently launched its international division, which is growing apace.
The SPA Way associate director Melanie Diamond, who will be leading the account, said: 'With significant public spending cuts imminent, schools are facing some serious belt tightening. The recruitment process has traditionally taken up far more budget than it should and we will be working with Eteach to support schools to save on recruitment costs and re-invest these resources into their pupils and staff.'
