With an average of 150 live adverts a month, it is safe to say that we are making a nice little name for ourselves in the FE sector. 90% of our clients come to us thanks to a referral, which means we must be doing something right. And it means we don’t have to spend time on sales calls that we could be spending on you. But don’t just take our word for it, see what our happy clients have to say.

George Cowley, Head of Human Resources

Fareham College

onlyFE are by far the best recruitment provider I have ever worked with.

They not only send out our jobs to a variety of job boards for a reasonable rate but they are also so proactive with sourcing candidates for those hard to fill vacancies. Sharron has helped me many times in my hour of need and provides such a genuine service, where you feel like she’s working with you and cares, like one of the team.

I couldn’t speak more highly of Sharron and the rest of onlyFE and would recommend them over any other recruitment provider for value and service.

Steph Blencowe, HR Adviser

Grimsby Institute

We’ve found Richard and Sharron incredibly helpful and responsive in a situation that requires a lot of attention to detail, knowledge and patience. We appreciate their fast response and helpful manner no matter what the query.

Katie Gooderham, HR Assistant

Highbury College

We have been really impressed with the response and commitment the onlyFE team have given to our College vacancies. When we need an urgent response we always get it from onlyFE!

Keith Hayward, Head of Human Resources

Tresham College

The College’s experience in working with onlyFE has been an extremely positive one.

This is borne from their professionalism, expediency and understanding of not only the market area but also our specific and varied requirements.

They are quick to respond and, through their in depth knowledge, able to provide sage advice on recruitment marketing.

OnlyFE are highly recommended and is our digital recruitment media supplier of choice.

Karen Edwards, Director of Human Resources

New College Swindon

I have been working with onlyFE since January 2016 and I cannot praise enough the standard of customer service I have been receiving. Both Sharron and Richard provide an extremely professional service and have a vast knowledge of the industry. I am extremely impressed by the way they follow the application process and track the number of candidates applying for our positions and chasing if necessary. I have phoned Sharon and Richard on numerous occasions asking for advice and guidance and they are always helpful offering good knowledgeable advice.

Using onlyFE has vastly extended our advertising reach and we have increased the applications we receive from a range of job boards.

Karen Gruar, HR Adviser

Lambeth College

We have been very pleased with the professional and very prompt service offered by onlyFE. They have offered us specialist advice and support in filling our roles. We have recently had a number of senior posts advertised which we were able to fill the first time without resorting to very expensive advertising. onlyFE advised and guided us through the best media sources that proved a success. They kept an eye on our campaigns and provided us with updates on the responses we were getting and how best to further promote our roles. They offered a very personal service.

They are extremely customer focused and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Musrat Zaman, Director of Human Resources

Activate Learning

The College Division of the Activate Learning Group comprises of Banbury & Bicester College, City of Oxford College and Reading College.

As leading providers of education and training across Oxfordshire & Berkshire having a talented, professional and high quality workforce is critical to our success.

OnlyFE have worked closely with us on a number of recent high-profile campaigns; they have been highly responsive, innovative, focused on our specific needs and have used their impressive networks to find us an enviable pool of talent.

Karen Sanders, Group Director – HR & Organisational Development

Leeds College of Building

As a construction college our vacancies are often quite specialist and we can struggle to find candidates with the right mix of qualifications and industry experience. OnlyFE offer a bespoke service tailored to our needs including candidate searching and placing our adverts on the more specialist job boards, which they may not usually deal with.

I would certainly recommend OnlyFE to other further education providers.

Hannah McCluskey, Human Resources Officer

City College Southampton

I have worked with onlyFE for a number of years, the personal service that Sharron and Richard give to all of our roles is outstanding, it’s as though they are an extension to my HR team!

Nothing is too much trouble, they have a vast knowledge of the FE sector and offer a service that is cost effective, fast, and fills my vacancies!

Michelle Foston, Senior HR Adviser

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College

onlyFE provide fantastic service with efficient friendly responses with excellent recruitment advice and guidance. The team can support even the most challenging vacancy using their extensive knowledge of the FE sector and links with a huge range of specialist job boards.
