Frequently Asked Questions.
I’m thinking of entering the interim market. How do I get started?
If you are thinking about joining the interim market, it would be a good idea to give us a call on 01772 954200. There are many options and avenues to explore but one of our SEND specialists can set you on the path which is right for you.
Who do you work with?
We predominantly work with Local Authority SEND services in the UK, covering the whole spectrum of a SEND service.
What’s involved in the application process?
Once you’re registered and onboarded with Spencer Clarke Group, you will have full access to all SEND vacancies which are sent out on a weekly basis.
The application process for these roles is fairly straightforward, usually consisting of a 1 or 2 stage interview process.
Will you send my CV without permission?
Absolutely not, you will always have full control of where your CV is sent. We will present opportunities to you and you can advise if you would like your CV to be forwarded on.
How quickly can you find me a job?
We pride ourselves on working very quickly; on average it takes us between 1 - 3 days to place a candidate.
How long will my contract be?
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to contract lengths but you can typically expect a contract to last between 6-12 months. However, contracts can last for years depending on the needs of the Local Authority SEND service which you are working for.
What happens when my contract ends?
Entering the interim market can be daunting at first, particularly if you’re not sure what to expect. However, contracts are regularly extended and as we work with hundreds of Local Authorities, there are always plenty more job opportunities just around the corner.
Simply contact us on 01772 954200 and we can put any concerns you have at ease.
Can I work remotely?
It totally depends on the Local Authority but the majority of positions which we offer are remote or hybrid working patterns. The benefit of fully remote positions means you can work from anywhere in the UK. The work pattern type will be listed on the job advert.
Why SENCOs Choose to Work With Us.
With over 1.5m pupils in England identified as having special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), the SENCO role has never been more important. In 2022, the percentage of pupils with SEN but no EHC plan (SEN support) also increased to 13.0%, up from 12.6%.
For experienced SENCOs, there has never been a better time to enter the interim market. For those considering becoming a SENCO, the future job market continues to looks promising; both the number of pupils with an education, health and care (EHC plan) and the number of pupils with SEN support have increased each year since 2016.

Why SENCOs Love Working With Us.
My experience was great from start to finish and I would recommend anyone in this line of work to this agency. Richard was very knowledgeable about how all the moving parts of the SEND system work together which made my transition into this role much easier.
My consultant has been very supportive and answered any questions I had. I had plenty of questions as I had not used an agency before so the processes were all new to me! I feel well supported and I have been given all the relevant information which I need.
