For more than three years we have successfully used Soccialy to recruit as part of our strategy to reach the candidates that job boards are unable to. Each time we have run a campaign, we have received a good number of high quality applications both for teaching roles and teaching support roles. Recruitment campaigns have always been launched quickly and efficiently, and with the costs being both within our budget expectations and offering very good value. We take advantage of the opportunity to purchase packs of campaigns, again offering very good value and with a generous time horizon in which to use the campaigns. The Service provided by our Account Manager has been excellent, efficient and flexible, and we now regard Soccialy as our trusted partner for all recruitment requirements.
ATLAS Multi-Academy School Trust
As an outstanding trust we have prided ourselves on being innovative in our approach. We have been actively looking for new solutions to enhance our response rates, reduce costs as well as recruit the most outstanding talent. Soccialy’s machine-learning technology really stood out above the competition. The best part of using soccialy is that some of the applicants we received from the campaign we ran with them were not even looking for new roles, so we have had a great shortlist of quality candidates. Since implementing this approach and streamlining of our application process, the candidate journey has been more enjoyable, and we have seen an increase in quality candidates applying directly. Their dashboard tool also enables us to monitor and track performance with total transparency. I would highly recommend soccialy as a modern and cost-effective approach. It attracts candidates that normally would not come through job boards or recruitment agencies and lets us recruit them simply and effectively.
The Mosslands School
We have been really impressed by the efficiency and customer service we have received from soccialy. We were initially drawn to them because of their forward-thinking strategy in using social media to engage our wider teaching audience, which fits well with our school’s focus on technology and innovation in the curriculum. We have been reassured by the quality and breadth of responses we received from our first major campaign with soccialy, from which we have successfully recruited candidates into key positions across the school. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to any colleague, irrespective of whether they have experienced difficulty recruiting in recent years or not. They provide excellent value for money, attentive personal service and have helped attract outstanding candidates to the school
Maltman's Green School, Admissions
Maltman’s Green School is a forward thinking, insight led school. We use soccialy’s platform as its the most modern, trackable, data driven solution to increase pupil numbers. Soccialy’s smart technology uses social media and Google to identify and engage exactly the right type of parent, in the right channel and at the right time. Since adopting this digital approach, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a healthy increase in enquiries for our school. Our marketing spend has now been channeled into this more targeted method with data available to monitor reach and impact. Highly recommended.
Maltman's Green School, Recruitment
Soccialy’s recruitment platform has worked so well during the COVID lockdown. We needed a Head of Maths teacher to compliment our professional team. We have traditionally used TES to advertise and when we compared the data from Tes it had only generated 30 clicks of interest to our vacancies page where as soccialy’s social media technology generated 79 candidates to click though to the job. This has led to a far greater choice of candidates to shortlist and helped us to successfully fill the role. We would highly recommend soccialy as an alternative way to recruit outstanding teachers.

The team were knowledgeable, professional, timely and gave honest feedback that would ensure the greatest success for our campaigns. A service I’d highly recommend to other Principals and school leaders.

The process of establishing our needs and providing a solution was insightful. This new approach and new technology can reach the parents that we are unable to reach. For our school we saw this as an effective way to complement our own marketing efforts and improve registrations.

The May Open Morning had a visible increase in visitors and the campaigns have culminated in a 40% increase in parents attending our September Open Morning. We also noted that we had interest from a wider geographical area than ever before. It is hugely satisfying to be able to measure the success of the campaigns via hard data, as opposed to printed advertising where we haven’t been able to. At Lochinver House we very pleased with the way that School Open Day is able to use all the different Social Media platforms and Google. Its co-ordinated and targeted in a way that generates real results for schools and best of all its all managed for us!
Dr Challoner's Grammar School
I signed up to the Talented Teacher Jobs approach as they have a very creative solution which enables us to get that visibility. A real advantage is the way that they are able to create sponsored social media campaigns that actively target the teachers we are looking for and bring them to our application process. This is a cost effective service and ensures that we are seen by teachers whenever and wherever they look, either on the internet or social media. I am happy to recommend TTJ and work they do. The whole process is easy and our jobs are posted across multiple websites and social media. This is a key strategy for recruitment in today’s schools.
Witchford Village College
Social media is an effective channel for us to connect with prospective candidates but we didn’t have the experience, understanding or time to do make all the right social media channels work effectively for us. When we were recommended to use Talented Teacher Jobs they made it simple to use and risk free. Their solution is clever and allows us to reach all the teachers in the market we want to target so that we no longer have to hope and wait for teachers to apply on job boards or use recruitment agencies. We are able to connect with the target audience and make all the right teachers in the area aware of the jobs available. It also enables us to communicate with candidates on the platforms they feel comfortable to use, so comfortable in fact that teachers were recommending others for our roles. They were then directed to our own schools website to apply avoiding competing with other schools in the area. I happily recommend Talented Teacher Jobs as an effective and easy way to use social media to recruit teachers, supporting the new DfE teaching vacancies service. It has helped us save thousands of pounds on recruitment costs.
