We find and retain quality staff for schools quickly. By teachers for teachers.

What is Diverse Apply?

DiverseApply is a teacher recruitment agency that doesn't feel like other agencies. That's because we only work to create long term or permanent matches between schools and talented educators.


But that's not the end of it...


 After we make strong matches, we provide ongoing retention support to ensure those hired through us can produce long-term impact in schools. 

We do a few things really well. These are:

1. We support teachers and leaders to find their permanent next step and career progression, through  tailored support to help them stay in teaching longer.

2. We support selected schools to find and hire great people that intend to stick it out for the long haul. For these schools, we find real talent to excel in hard-to-fill positions at a fraction of the cost of traditional agencies.

3. We are building a supply network we care about. It's not the biggest network, but that helps us  make sure we work with great people to find them supply work in schools that care about them.

Our 3 Core Beliefs


There is a school out there for everyone.

Before they leave the profession, educators should always try a change of school first.


Schools are challenging places to work for extended periods of time.

That's why we offer continued support beyond the signing of contacts.

"Jamie and DiverseApply came at the right time for me. I had decided to start looking for a new challenge and Jamie reached out, speaking with me about what was available and choosing roles that best fit what I was looking for both personally and professionally. I was supported throughout the process, getting honest advice and support with applying, getting documents together, liaising with the school and just general checking in to see how I was doing. 
I was supported all the way, even after my interview was successful."
