Working as a teaching assistant and looking for a career change - you’ve come to the right place! Currently working as a teaching assistant, unhappy in your role, and want to know where your teaching experience could take you? 

You might have never even thought about a career in recruitment… but what if we told you that you could use all of your current skills and work experience to build a successful career, and ultimately make more money!   

Good news - you don’t need a recruitment background. You don’t need specific industry knowledge. You just need drive, determination, social skills… and a few other key traits. If you’re the right culture fit, you could go far! Read on to get a clear picture of how your transferable skills could translate to a recruitment role... 

What is it about recruitment?

The transition into recruitment from any teaching role can take your career to the next level! Even in the training phase of being a recruitment consultant, you will recognise the potential of this business… and how far your career path in recruitment could take you!  

Recruitment VS Logistics

Working as a teaching assistant consists of long hours, late nights in the classroom, picking up extra work constantly, taking work home with you, and working on weekends. 

Working in Recruitment is a lot of the same! But, let me be direct… it may be the same, but you will definitely earn a lot more money in recruitment. You get out of this job what you put in! If you have the drive and the passion for people, and are not shy of hard work - this could be the perfect industry for you! Possibilities with us are endless…  

What are the key benefits?  

  • High-Earning Potential  
  • Unlimited Progression  
  • Career Development Plan 
  • Ability To Reach Director Status in 2-5 years  
  • Wellness benefits…

As a teaching assistant, you thrive in a fast-paced, busy and creative environment. Every day is different, with challenges round every corner.  But what are your career goals as a TA? You’re here for a reason, you want more in life, and you want to create your dream life!  

How Can My TA Skills Transfer to Recruitment?

If transferred successfully, your skills developed in education can result in high earnings! Some recruitment skills are honed over time, but starting off on the right foot is key… and that’s easier when your skills are transferable! 

Key transferable TA skills: 

  • Communication skills: As a teacher assistant, you use your communication skills every day - building relationships, using your written and oral skills, working with colleagues, and ultimately making each pupil feel comfortable and understood.
  • Organisation: There is also a lot of admin in your role - with focus on organising your schedule, your workload, planning, researching… being prepared the night before for your lessons. Working evenings and weekends to ensure you’re organised and ready to support the teacher you work with.  
  • Problem-solving skills: You’re used to problem-solving each and every day. Resolving conflict between pupils, or simply working out better ways to teach topics to certain pupils. Solving any problems with parents, complaints, or overcoming setbacks.  
  • Collaboration: You work both independently and collaboratively in your TA role - with a strong ability to do both. Mostly working collaboratively, teamwork is a big part of being a teaching assistant, and you are used to helping your colleagues and working seamlessly together. 
  • Creativity: One of the most important skills as a teaching assistant - being able to come up with fun and interesting activities that help pupils learn is key! Assisting your coworker in these tasks, offering your opinion, and engaging with the students...Should we go on?
