FAQ for Candidates
What commitment am I making by joining the GRC?
Your commitment extends to:
Registering as a candidate in a recruitment collaborative that seeks to simplify the candidate search and hiring process.
Maintaining an up to date and accurate single profile in the database. The Collaborative depends on candidates maintaining an accurate up to date profile and disabling (hiding) their profile when they are not seeking a position. Candidates whose emails are continuosly reported as "Delivery Failure", your profile will be made invisible.
Every candidate is permitted a single profile. Candidates registering with multiple profiles will be flagged in the system and disabled and or deleted.
What are the costs?
There is no cost to join the GRC, no subscription fees, no fees to attend the Face-to-Face-Fairs, and no placement fees that schools will have to pay upon hiring candidates.
No party may collect any fees on behalf of the Collaborative.
What candidate data will be stored in the database?
Simplified Profiles - The database has been designed to capture essential candidate data. Candidates registering with the GRC are only required to provide basic biographical data, contact details, a resume, a photo, and a list of references for confidential endorsements.
Does the GRC conduct criminal background checks on registered candidates in the database?
No. Recruiting schools are responsible for background and reference checks.
The GRC is not equipped to conduct background verification or police clearances. As candidate screening requirements are not the same for all schools, individual schools are responsible for meeting any candidate screening requirements they may have. Please know that no candidates in the GRC database have provided any background checks to the GRC.
GRC strongly recommends all recruiting schools follow safe recruitment practices.
How do confidential recommendations and reference checks work in the collaborative?
In keeping with “Recruitment Simplified”, we will not ask candidates’ supervisors to complete long recommendation forms for candidates. In lieu of recommendation forms, we have incorporated an "endorsement function" into the database.
Referees will see one of the following statements when filling in the endorsement:
I would hire this teacher again without reservations or conditions.
A good candidate, give me a call.
I would not rehire this teacher.
There is also a text box for references to add a sentence or two about the candidate.
References cannot be deleted.
Each school is responsible for and encouraged to conducting further reference checks on candidates. Registered candidates should expects recruiting schoools to complete comprehensive refrence and background checks.
Will the head of school be aware of all their current teachers who have chosen to enter the database?
We want to operate in a transparent, mutually respectful environment. When candidates register in the database, the Head of School will receive a notification and be prompted to endorse the candidate.
Do candidates need to resign before signing up?
By requiring teachers to use their work email ID to join the Collaborative, recruiters will be aware of any teacher who has joined the Collaborative. We aim to work in a “no surprises” environment. It is a candidate’s responsibility to follow any notification procedures or requirements set by their current school.
Are other search agencies going to charge me for using their database even though I acquired my position through the Collaborative?
The Collaborative is not responsible for and will not mitigate any fees charged by any other organizations nor will it reimburse or equalize these fees.
