Academic Appointments is a market leading, Yorkshire based educational recruitment business. Specialising in placement of long term temporary qualified teachers into schools, the business also provides for all the staffing requirements of its school customers from teachers through to support staff roles. Academic Appointments was founded by Mo Parkin in 2004 who has successfully grown the business to become one of the leading brands in the Yorkshire education marketplace.
Investment into Academic Appointments by Solingen was completed in May 2017 to back the management buy-out of the business led by Managing Director Pete Riley, working in partnership with the rest of the senior management team. Founder Mo Parkin remains a significant stakeholder and has taken on the role of Chairperson.
Academic Appointments has grown from a strong base in Yorkshire. The investment and the support of Solingen will help as the business continues to penetrate new geographic locations in Yorkshire and increase the number of schools it works with.
