Trusted to recruit by leading education providers

About Us

We help education job seekers by giving them unrivalled choice and information throughout their job search.

We also help education providers with scalable and affordable hiring solutions.

Our aim is to make it easier for employers and job-seekers to find good career moves together.

This is achieved by combining new advertising technology, leading job market intelligence and our expert consultancy.


We started recruiting in the further education and skills sector way back in 2007. After being involved in recruiting 1,000s of people into the education and training sector, we noticed in 2022 that things haven’t changed too much in how employers and job-seekers find each other.

So, we created Boltjobs.com to scale our impact in the education sector.

We enable education providers with scalable hiring solutions, contributing to improving the life chances of their learners.

We still offer strategic talent acquisition services through Bolt Search, working in tandem with our presence on Boltjobs.com

“An extremely professional recruiter. They communicate well and understand the needs of the client. They are considerate and helpful in their approach. Alex continues to support and maintain communication with clients even after they have been placed, which in my experience is unheard of."
