Delivering direct savings

Expenditure on supply cover is rising every year and on average 10% of all lessons are covered by supply teachers for emergency short-term and long-term sickness. Due to educators needing supply at such short notice, the charge rates from recruitment agencies continue to rise. de Poel education can deliver an average cost saving of 12% by working with a panel of agencies who agree to standardise rates per job role. They then compete on quality and performance of staff, not cost.

Receiving and processing hundreds of invoices a year from all your recruitment supplies can add thousands to your agency service costs. Indeed, with processing costs of around £50 per invoice, the true cost of non-permanent staffing is often significantly higher than predicted. With de Poel education this is reduced to one invoice per week thanks to our innovative web-based timesheet and invoice processing system, e-tips®.

de Poel education can help you make dramatic cost savings on your supply staff spend. If you would like to find out how, please contact us today.
