All applications, referrals, or supporting documents (including CVs), must be submitted through our online recruitment system or they will not be recognised as an introduction to the Harris Federation.

Unsolicited and anonymous CV's submitted through this website, or sent to, or the generic e-mail contact of any Harris Academy, or personal e-mail accounts of Harris Federation employees, are considered to be the property of the Harris Federation and will not qualify for a fee to be paid. Referral fees will only be payable where an Academy has instructed an Agency for a specific appointment, or, where Terms of Business have been agreed by both parties prior to an engagement.

In line with our commitments to safeguarding, the Harris Federation is unable to work with recruitment agencies where T&Cs have not been agreed prior to a an engagement and the relevant compliance checks carried out. We will not enter any commercial undertaking with any recruitment businesses on the basis of speculatively marketed CVs or telephone calls. The Harris Federation hereby indemnifies itself against any costs, charges, recruitment fees or other liabilities relating to any recruitment business.

This notice shall prevail over any other terms of business or conditions (or similar) put forward by an Agency for the supply of permanent or temporary staff.
