A Year in Already - A blog by Clare Oram, Business Manager

As I approach my 1 year anniversary with Academic Appointments in our Doncaster branch and I reflect on the last 11 months I have encountered many challenges but it has proved to be an exciting ride. The last 11 months have gone by so quickly and I have enjoyed becoming a part of the AA family. Being surrounded by a supportive and encouraging team has certainly been a benefit and has spurred me on to ensure that our Doncaster branch is a success for absolutely the right reasons. I came into my role as a new Manager with very little experience but an immense amount of ambition and passion for my role and Academic Appointments.

I now find myself in a very pleasant office with an expanding team and long gone are the days of it just being little old me and the 2 goldfish I have had as companions for the last 11 months. Both the new Consultants and the fish are doing very well and I am very proud of my little team and excited for our future.

I am joined by Aaron Jones and Alex Melville who are both in their 5th week with Academic Appointments and are both embracing their new roles and making an impact with our clients and candidates. Aaron has a strong background in contract and operations management and is quickly demonstrating his high standards for service to both clients and candidates. He is already receiving glowing feedback from both which we do also have in writing.

Alex has worked in education recruitment for a few months prior to joining us and he has a real spark and a genuine love for his new role. He is energetic and enthusiastic and is proving a hit with his clients and candidates and he enjoys getting out and meeting the contacts in his schools.

As the branch expands we are consistently looking for more education professionals to join our supply books but also are keen to speak with individuals looking for long term positions. As the Easter break approaches we are receiving may enquiries regarding Teachers and Teaching Assistants for longer term contracts. The number of schools we are working with is increasingly rapidly due to our local presence, local Teachers and positive reputation.

Our long term vision is to be the agency of choice for schools and education professionals across the South Yorkshire area and we are looking forward to the exciting times ahead in the Doncaster office.
