Information for Agencies

Wakefield College generates a lot of interest and we receive many calls from Employment Agencies and Recruitment Advertising Agencies, although we do appreciate the interest you have shown in Wakefield College, our Policy, as approved by our Governors, states that we must recruit candidates directly ourselves wherever possible, we therefore do not accept any cold calls or any speculative emails from agencies.

Preferred suppliers
If, on the very rare occasion, we choose to use an Agency/Employment Businesses or Recruitment Advertising Agencies.

We would first go to our current providers or those listed on the Crescent Purchasing Consortium www.thecpc.ac.uk. We ask that you respect the relationships which we have built up with our current providers, with whom we would always work with.

Legal Disclaimer
You also need to be aware that our legal team review all terms of business before we enter into any agreements. We must therefore insist that you do not contact any Wakefield College employee directly as they have no authority to enter in to agreement with you. All recruitment queries and communication should be directed to hr.recruit@wakefield.ac.uk.

And finally... We want to have a good working relationship with you – and we understand you want the same and are trying to promote your business. However if we need your help we will contact you, we therefore do not accept any cold calls or any speculative emails from agencies.

Thank you for your understanding.

As a working mum, I’ve enjoyed the flexibility the College has offered me, which includes a generous holiday scheme, flexi-working and a great pension.
