Ignata Education

We help educational organisations deliver outstanding learning and exceptional leadership.

Recruitment for a sector that’s always learning

Our areas of expertise cover the placement of interim and substantive candidates at all levels ranging from Senior Leadership to School Support staff into Academies, Universities, Schools and Local Authorities across the UK.

Our experience

We have partnered with a number of educational institutions and supported them on a range of crucial appointments from frontline teachers and TAs to strategic leaders. Our established relationships and candidate network enable us to efficiently source the best talent in the market.


Our blend of experience, including direct industry experience as teachers, enables us to put ourselves in the client’s position. We understand the responsibility of sourcing talent for schools and take this seriously. Preferring to partner with a smaller number of clients than traditional ‘education supply agencies’, we are able to support our clients as partners across interim requirements, strategic staffing solutions and executive search and selection.

I have been working with Russell closely over the last month to provide a solution to some of my varied and challenging recruitment needs. The high level of personal service and attention to detail that I have received had made a potentially highly stressful process easy. Russell takes time to understand the needs of his clients ensuring a tailor made service. I can highly recommend him for any education sector managers seeking to ease the burden of leadership, teacher and support staff recruitment.
