We work in partnership with recruitment agencies to reduce operating costs and support them to offer a better deal to supply staff through reduced commission rates, individualised support and higher quality CPD.
By working with recruitment agencies, we draw upon their experience and expertise to continue developing Safer Recruitment systems and regulation, ensuring that only those with the relevant qualifications, rights and clearance, work in our schools.
You don't underestimate the importance of safe-guarding so neither have we.

In basic terms DemandforSupply is as safe to use as your current agency system only now you get more choice and control over who you invite to work with your students.
