Bristol-based recruitment group Alexander Daniels has bolstered its education division with the appointment of two new team members.

Experienced recruiter Steve Underwood has joined Alexander Daniels to head up its education team as divisional manager. Steve has more than 15 years in the industry, latterly as head of recruitment at a large FE College.

He has been joined by Caroline Garnett who has operated at a senior level for over eight years, latterly as regional manager for a national education agency.

AD Education supports and works in partnership with colleges and FE providers, supplying interim, visiting and sessional staff across curriculum, senior management and business support.

Steve comments: “Having managed recruitment onsite with a college environment Caroline and I understand the ever changing demands on teaching and learning staff at all levels and the importance this has on the impact of the learners.

“Apprenticeships are now at the top of the Government’s agenda and there is a severe skills shortage, particularly in STEM subjects, which are also impacted by a shortage of lecturers and assessors.

“This is why AD Education works in partnership with colleges and training providers to support resource gaps.”
