Zen Educate supports both daily supply needs — last-minute cover and planned absences — and we can also help you fill long-term roles at your school from a few weeks to a year or more. Here I'll explain how our Recruit feature works and how you can use it to find and contact great candidates for your school.


You'll find our Recruit feature in the menu on the left. What you'll see first is a list of all teachers and teaching assistants who could potentially work at your school, whether it's a nursery, pupil referral unit, primary or secondary school, ordered by distance from your school. It's a great way to see teachers in your area who might be interested in working at your school.


You can refine and filter who you see by using the filters at the top.

  • Teaching role: show Teachers, Teaching assistants or Cover supervisors
  • Length: see candidates open to daily supply work or long-term roles, both full or part time
  • Year group or subject: which year groups or subjects they can cover

You can see the profile of each of the candidates by selecting Profile and view their CV if you want to learn more.


If you think someone may be right for an opportunity at your school, now or in the future, select Contact. If you like you can then add some optional information about the role: start/end date and whatever details you'd like to provide.

Hit confirm and we'll contact the teacher with the context you provided and if they're interested we'll put you in touch.

Recruit is never static — as new teachers join our platform in your area who fit your criteria you'll be able to see them there and get in touch if you like.

Recruit is new. So please give us feedback to let us know if it's helpful and if we can make it better for you.
