Ryan is the current Head of Education at KPI Education. He has been in education recruitment for over 10 years.  Over these years, Ryan has built strong long-lasting relationships with a plethora of schools and Multi Academy Trusts. Primarily, Ryan has recruited for schools in London but has experience recruiting in many other areas of the UK. Ryan’s vision is for KPI Education to become the go-to and market-leading education recruitment specialist providing the very best talent to schools. He is also a governor at a local Primary School in Stockport which keeps his knowledge and understanding of the struggles schools face and gives something back to his local community. Outside of work, Ryan plays cricket in the summer for Colwyn Bay Cricket Club in North Wales which recently became champions of Wales after winning the Welsh Cup for the second time. He is also an avid Man United fan but he has struggled to cope with recent poor results on the pitch. 


Holly is passionate when it comes to advocating high-quality education.

Having gained a BA in Primary Education, Holly has first-hand experience working in the school setting and a great understanding of the qualities that make an individual an excellent educator. Using this, alongside her recent experience in sales, Holly is now beginning her journey in education recruitment at KPI Education.

Holly has a genuine enthusiasm for education and knows just how important her role is in inspiring the next generation of teachers to jump into the profession. She hopes to utilise this as she develops into an experienced education recruiter.

Andy fell into the world of recruitment at the start of 2024. Utilising his English Literature degree and experience in sales, he was keen to work in an industry in which dealing with people and building relationships could be his bread and butter. Andy jumped at the chance to support the education sector – recalling his own positive experiences with inspiring teachers throughout his academic career. 


Despite being new to the world of recruitment – with most of his career spent within the beer industry, Andy is eager to learn the ropes and continue to support schools in Greater Manchester with the best graduate talent. He has enjoyed early successes under the guidance of an experienced team at KPi Education, and has high hopes for his future at the business!


Phil has gained 12-plus years recruiting for long-term and permanent teacher and support roles in many regions of the UK. 

He has worked with tiny village primary schools and national multi-academy trusts on individual recruitment needs to large campaigns – and everything in between. 

Phil has two happy boys and lives in North Manchester with an unhappy wife whom he worships. Although in his 40s, Phil likes to think that he is in good shape and loves a Park Run and a regular game of football with the lads. Phil also supports Bury FC in the non-league pyramid of football and loves an away day.

Rebecca prides herself on building relationships with candidates at all levels and school clients. Passionate and dedicated to the education industry always willing to go the extra mile.


Tom is entering his 4th year in recruitment and has achieved a good amount in a relatively short space of time. He started his education recruitment journey in the strangest of circumstances as the world was shut down due to Covid! Tom also started in a completely undeveloped area in Liverpool, building relationships with schools from scratch and now has a strong presence across Merseyside with primary, secondary and SEN schools.


Away from work, Tom loves sport. He plays cricket every weekend throughout the summer and enjoys a game of golf and football when he can as well as working part-time for a rugby team as a performance analyst. He is also a long-suffering Everton fan! Tom lives in Liverpool with his partner – who is a primary school teacher funnily enough.
