How smartMatch works:

  • Our dedicated recruitment team will take the time to understand what makes your school unique, it’s ethos and culture and the type of candidate you’re searching for
  • We have conversations with candidates interested in new opportunities to find your school the best possible teachers and to ensure that we’ll find you a teacher that’s the perfect match
  • All applications are entered into your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) on Tes Portal so you can easily track and manage applicants throughout the recruitment process

With smartMatch the team worked closely with us to find the right candidate profile and match this to the ethos of our school.

Tes Schools Expo

As part of your Excel/ Excel MAT Recruitment Subscription you can exhibit and attend free smartMatch networking events. These events give you the opportunity to meet, chat with and potentially hire the teachers who are looking for new opportunities.

Ahead of the event, we'll contact you to talk through your vacancies and the types of candidates you’re looking for. We’ll then match you with the most compatible teachers attending the fair.

On the day, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your school with a stand in our exhibition area, deliver a session to promote working at your school, meet and greet potential candidates and conduct interviews that we've helped you pre-arrange.
