Jason Howard Jason Howard

Jason has been recruiting teachers and support staff for the business since February 2008, and is one of the longest serving members of the Academics family! Prior to working in recruitment, after graduating, Jason worked in publishing sales and retail, before taking a chance on a resourcing opportunity for the company in 2008, and he has been here ever since. Since 2011, Jason has successfully grown the primary supply desk within the Calderdale, Kirklees and Bradford Local Authorities. Jason now manages the Halifax branch, working with primary schools in Calderdale and Kirklees and helping them with both contract vacancies, and daily supply in Halifax and Huddersfield, helping schools find primary teachers and teaching assistants. Because of the trust Jason has built with his client schools, he is also heavily involved with many of their permanent vacancies. Jason also holds Cert RP status with the REC.

Life outside of work for Jason is committed to his family and his drum kit!
