Sincere Education founder Michael Nicholls has worked in education recruitment since 2010. His experience as a consultant convinced him that this sector deserved a fresh approach. Agencies rely heavily on the hard work their candidates do… Shouldn’t the focus be more on the candidates?
So he launched Sincere Education in 2014 to:
Grow a company that cares about and looks after its staff
Challenge the education recruitment industry’s reputation for bad practice and poor service.
What makes us different?
Small isn’t just beautiful. Our size makes us flexible, and quick to match the right staff with schools and vice versa. ‘Assume positive intent’ is our motto and we enjoy building mutual trust. You get to know your own consultant and don’t get passed around.
Open honest communication
We’re big fans of straight-talking. We’re good listeners too, taking time to understand what you want, whether you’ve just joined or been with us for a while. And we keep in close contact, providing updates and feedback on your requests and applications.
We make our payment process as simple and transparent as possible to avoid any confusion. You choose your preferred payment method, and have no obligation to be paid through umbrella companies.
Quality on both sides
We aim to offer each school excellent candidates and – on the flip side – keep every candidate busy with regular, good-quality assignments. Our experience means we know how to bring both sides together without unnecessary delay.
Progress through respect
At Sincere Education we want to grow our business in a way that makes us proud. We believe the best way to do that is to value people, encourage their development and reward their performance.
We’re lucky enough to have received many referrals from satisfied clients and candidates.

I have worked with Mike over the past seven years and have always found him to be professional and caring. After working the day at a new school, he calls to check how everything went and takes on board how you feel about the school.
The placements he finds for me have consistently been what I need, whether I wanted to work closer to home, part-time, full-time, day-to-day, or more long term. The rate of pay is very competitive, compared to other agencies I have worked with in the past, and I can with complete confidence recommend their services to others.

I have been employed by Sincere agency for over a year now as a PE teacher. This is not my first agency but I have to say I have been impressed by the way that Sincere is run.
99% of the time they inform me of work the day before along with the type of work that I will be doing. This I have very much appreciated as it has allowed me time to prepare beforehand.
Since working for Sincere I have been to some very good schools and had positive feedback, enabling me to return regularly to the same schools. This has allowed me to build strong links within these schools, which has made teaching in them very rewarding.
Thanks to sincere I am finally enjoying teaching again after twenty years. So why join Sincere? If you like to teach, Sincere is a friendly agency where you will be appreciated when you go to their schools. Sincere cares about you as a person and always aims to give you jobs in advance. You will also meet many of their other staff when on assignment for them, so there is always someone friendly to talk to – so your never alone.
As an agency I would recommend Sincere to you always.

I’ve been working for Sincere Education for a year now and really enjoy every moment. I saw their website online and thought it looked like a lovely warm company to work for, and when I had my interview my initial thoughts thankfully came to fruition. Mike couldn’t have been more helpful and explanatory and I left feeling very confident about what the work entailed and knew I would be in safe hands. This past year has been wonderful and I’ve met some incredible people. Sincere have a fantastic way of fitting each supply teacher to the schools which best suits the individual and I am so grateful they understand where I work the best and which places I have the best connections with.
I can see myself working for Sincere for quite some time and feel very much part of the company family.
