We are proud to be working with New Paradigm for Education (NPFE) to staff their district for the 2017-2018 school year, as well as build and grow additional talent infrastructure and partnerships. NPFE operates seven school campuses throughout the City of Detroit and specializes in maximizing student learning potential through proven educational practices. Their schools offer a new educational paradigm evident by increased student achievement, fiscal responsibility, and community support.

As part of this effort, Hampton Consulting has engaged and recruited nearly 1,000 candidates by:  

  • Developing a strategic recruitment plan
  • Engaging several partners and creating pipelines of educators

  • Meeting 1:1 with over 100 potential candidates

  • Coordinating a hiring fair that engaged all principals and leadership across the district, including a “one-stop shop” interview experience for candidates (first and second interviews, as well as conditional contract signings for qualified candidates)

  • Utilizing a variety of strategic recruitment platforms, including various online job boards, social media, direct contacts, and more, resulting in applications from throughout Michigan and as far away as New York and Florida

As districts and schools wrap-up recruitment, we wanted to share some recruitment tips that have been invaluable:

  1. While innovation is great, strong execution is key.

  2. Leverage your network--this includes your greatest assets: your existing staff.

  3. Cast your net wide. One strategy will not get you fully staffed, yet multiple strategies being simultaneously executed strongly, will.

In our last week of the hiring season for the 2017-2018 academic year, consider joining NPFE! If you’d like to join the NPFE team, we do have a few classroom roles still available! Email adague@npfeschools with your resume and a copy of your Michigan Teaching Certificate to apply today!
