Recruitment Process

Our aim is to provide you with the support you need to find and hire qualified candidates from overseas, and to ensure their smooth transition to their new roles in your company. Below, we outline our activities during each phase of the process, and how we can help.

Recruitment Campaign

We work with you to understand your specific needs and create job adverts tailored to your requirements. With our recruitment campaign, we provide you with pre-screened, qualified candidates who are passionate about working with children. We also provide you with a 5-minute video of the candidate in action, so you can see first-hand how they interact with children and a better sense of the candidate’s skills and experience. We would create a grading system with your values and requirements that ensures that you receive only the best candidates for the job. Additionally, we would recommend some of the courses from our award-winning training tailored to you and the candidate specifically, so they are ready to join your team.

Visa Process

Our visa process services are designed to support your company in hiring international candidates seamlessly. During this phase, we would be supporting the candidates from start to finish, providing weekly progress reports. We handle everything from requesting references and assessing visa requirements to assigning sponsorship certificates, submitting visa applications, and signing formal contracts with successful candidates. We understand the complexities of the visa process and work closely with each candidate to ensure they have everything they need to obtain their visa and join your team. Our training services, provided by our sister company Aspire Training Team, enable candidates to start their training while they wait for their visa but before they arrive in the UK, ensuring they are fully prepared to work in your nursery from day one.


We know that relocating to a new country can be challenging, which is why we would help with all the logistics, including scheduling flights and coaches, finding temporary accommodation, or housing, and making sure that candidates have a place to stay upon arrival. We will also assist candidates in picking up their BRP and using it to open a bank account, applying for their NI number and DBS, and completing any other necessary paperwork. Our goal is to make the relocation process as seamless as possible, so that your candidates can focus on settling into their new role and avoiding unnecessary work.
