our approach

We visit every client

All our consultants are Further Education specialists working within specific technical and geographical areas. This enables them to better understand your needs and requirements and have more meaningful conversations about finding you solutions that deliver the best result for your organisation.

We acknowledge every client is different with individual needs which is why we favour a bespoke approach. We offer face to face meetings as standard and assign every client a dedicated Client Relationship Manager. The more we understand about your business the better service we can provide, hence why we promote a partnership model and look to develop more long-term relationships.

“In the last few years we have worked with Boston Rose, they have always found candidates for us and especially in the harder to fill areas.”

"The consultants are informative, customer focussed and efficient thus taking away a lot of the hassle associated with the recruitment process.

The feedback from our students and other lecturers alike has been excellent. The temporary to permanent option is also a benefit as they are staff we always wish to keep hold of.

I look forward to working with them in the future and would recommend them to any of my colleagues or other colleges."

Simon Thorpe | Procurement Team, Bradford College | 2017

“The College has worked with Boston Rose since 2008 and in this time they have consistently made a number of successful placements, particularly within Engineering and Functional Skills.”

"The specialist consultants are always able to source appropriate candidates, arrange interviews and we appointed very quickly for all positions 

I find the staff to be very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. We always receive an excellent level of service, receiving appropriate CVs from qualified candidates shortly after we have requested them.

Boston Rose is an agency we will continue to use exclusively and can recommend to any company recruiting into hard to fill education positions."

Laura Clarke | HR Officer, Burton and South Derbyshire College | 2017

“We have worked with Boston Rose for a number of years. They have always proven themselves to be efficient and knowledgeable within the sector and therefore have provided quality candidates.”

"Their consultants and back office team are a pleasure to deal with, they always have that personal touch despite being one of the larger agencies that we use. Our Client Relationship Manager is fantastic and will always work hard to ensure our needs are met. I would have no problem in recommending Boston Rose to other organisations."

Frances Ward | HR Advisor, South Essex College

“As a college we always aim to employ staff directly, however we recognise that agencies can be useful to help fill those more ‘difficult to fill’ positions.”

"We have been working with Boston Rose for several years and have established a great working relationship. The consultants are very knowledgeable and have been able to make many quick placements within a range of departments. 

The Client Relationship Manager, Ben, and I have met on several occasions and I find these meetings a very useful opportunity to talk about upcoming roles and the service received so far. 

Boston Rose has proven to be a valuable resource this year and I would recommend their service to any other provider."

Laura Gower | Recruitment Coordinator, Wiltshire College | 2016

“I have worked with Boston Rose for a number of years now and have always been impressed with the level of service and speed at which they can get candidates across.”

"It is sometimes difficult to get temporary cover for some curriculum areas and our location often makes this harder! So the need to use an agency that delivers is essential.

Boston Rose is a company that I will continue to use in the first instance and happy to recommend their services to others."

Kevin Buzza | HR Manager, Penwith College | 2016

“MGTS recently needed to recruit for a Mechanical Engineering Trainer. Boston Rose was able to source appropriate candidates, arrange interviews and we appointed very quickly.”

"We received a fantastic level of service from the team at Boston Rose; the consultants are always friendly and helpful, listening to our requirements and providing a personal service.

As an exclusive client of theirs we know we can trust them with a role and we do not need to go to another agency thus saving on time and speculative calls and emails from others.

We’ll continue to work with Boston Rose to fill our vacancies and would recommend them to any organisation recruiting into education positions."

Kim Biggins | Company Administrator & P.A., Midland Group Training Services
