Hear from our consultants


We are a little different to most employers, with big ideas and big ambition. On average, our consultants stay with us for at least 5 years (almost unheard of in the recruitment industry!) What we expect from our employees is energy, enthusiasm and hard work. In return, we reward you with generous bonus schemes, social events and a supportive management team on hand to help guide you.


But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our staff say…. 

“Sugarman Education genuinely cares about the staff who work hard and want the best experience for candidates, schools and their employees. My boss acknowledges he is not the front of all knowledge; he values and respects my experience and the expertise I bring. My job gives me the opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives and make a difference every day. I go home and I know I made a real difference. I aspire to inspire people and I am actually doing this. It is so rewarding to see this knowing that even if only indirectly, I have had a small part to play in that.”


Senior Consultant 

“Whilst working for Sugarman for the last 6 and half years I’ve realised that It’s not just a recruitment company that’s filled with consultants but a company that’s filled with a bunch of talented consultants that have become family. All consultants are trained in house by outstanding management/team leaders with the help of state of the art systems. It’s a company where you can progress your career and help those around you.”




Senior Consultant 

“I love working at Sugarman because I am constantly challenged. I am surrounded by a creative team of individuals and no two days are ever the same!”
