Began my career in Recruitment in 1997, when I worked on the High Street running a Permanent commercial desk and then started my own recruitment company in August 1994 ltd focusing on the Rec – Rec market. This business was built through reputation and referrals and during this time I a Care Agency that ran successfully until it was sold in November 2014. Having taken some time out I still have a passion for recruitment and am looking forward to a new challenge in the legal arena.
With over a decade of recruiting experience I’ve worked for some of the most well known brands in Not for Profit recruitment as well as directly for charities sourcing and interviewing candidates for my own teams.
I specialise in all areas of the NFP sector including charities, education, housing, social enterprise, community, and the public sector. I also cover employability, welfare to work, social care, corporate social responsibility, and recruitment roles within the private sector especially where companies have funding from public sources.
With a wide network of contacts in these areas I often succeed in finding that perfect candidate where others haven’t and relish seeking out those who have just started their job search, or maybe were just about to but hadn’t got round to updating their CV yet.
I first started working in charity recruitment back in 2001 recruiting temporary staff. I eventually moved into specialist and fundraising permanent roles in 2005 and into employability and welfare to work in 2009 where I taught jobseeking skills. In 2013 I decided to make my move into the not for profit sector directly and still keeping my employability and recruitment focus worked within housing, community development, and youth work where I was also able to gain valuable experience of contract management and funding bids.
In 2016 I joined Rekroot. Things have changed a lot throughout my career and I’ve adapted and changed with it, shaping the way I work as laws and best practise move forwards. In the next few years I’m anticipating many more changes which is why my services are continually evaluated and improving.
I am Anthony McClellan; I head up a small team focusing on the provision of supply staff to schools in the Midlands area.
My vision is to strip away the problems and issues experienced by school decision makers and supply staff, to provide a seamless and supportive service that is clearly needed in education today.
For schools, we have two prime objectives. One, to provide the most capable and conscientious supply staff we can find and two, to help schools relieve some of the pain from their tight budgets by asking them to pay a realistic, balanced and fair price for the work we do and the support we provide. So, no more percentage fees and no more crippling daily rates that feed only one side of the business partnership.
From my personal experience with supply staff, head teachers and school business managers in the past, proving I understand the educational needs of the students while bring the cost of supply right down to acceptable levels, which also still meets the needs of my own business, is a fundamental and necessary requirement to achieve success and satisfaction for students, teaching staff and school leaders.
More than twenty years experience in professional recruitment dealing with a range of clients from SME's through to major international companies and PLC's.
