Leeds-based education recruitment specialist PK Education has welcomed its latest staff member.
Experienced consultant, Tracey Lynch, has joined the fast-growing company’s newly opened Leeds office as Special Education Needs (SEND) consultant, after three years with another agency.
“It’s really nice, I’m enjoying it, it’s a breath of fresh air,” said Tracey, 34, who lives in Leeds.
“I used to run a SEND desk at a previous company. I built that up and brought a lot of clients in in a short space of time. It’s more autonomous at PK Education and I’m able to enjoy what recruitment is about; getting the right people the right roles. When you are in a corporate structure you can’t add your own input. Here it is like running your own business within a business. I’m able to be more focused and able to set my own goals and challenges.”
Tracey, a mum-of-three, said she had been impressed by the supply teacher agency’s ethos and appreciated how family orientated the company is.
“The hours are perfect,” added Tracey, who has three young daughters. Outside of work, Tracey enjoys spending time with her young family.
In the future she hopes to develop the SEND side of PK Education. “I want to make my mark and build this desk and if that means bringing on a couple more people to work alongside me that would be brilliant,” she said.
PK Education puts performance before profit and intelligently matches teachers to schools based on skills, rather than a one-size fits all approach. Its ethos has helped the company stand out from the rest and PK has experienced rapid growth over the last year, doubling its turnover and increasing staff numbers considerably.
The company now boasts seven offices in Newcastle, Sheffield, Nottingham, Birmingham, Leicester, Manchester and Leeds, and is continuing to recruit top quality consultants to join the PK family.
