We are extremely proud to announce that Affinity Workforce and its brands – CER, Monarch Education, Career Teachers and Sugarman Education, have been awarded a place on the Sunday Times 2024 “Best Place’s to Work” list.


This prestigious recognition is a testament to our hard work and commitment to creating a workplace environment where our employees can thrive and succeed. Our teams are constantly working to create a space where people feel empowered and supported to be the best version of themselves. 

The Sunday Times Best Places to Work list is highly regarded in the UK business community, showcasing organisations that prioritise employee satisfaction, well-being, and development. Companies on this list are celebrated for their outstanding workplace culture, employee engagement initiatives, and commitment to creating a positive work-life balance.


Being included in this prestigious list is a reflection of our core values and the dedication of our team. We believe that our people are our greatest asset, and this recognition reaffirms our efforts to create a supportive, inclusive, and rewarding workplace for all.

Prioritising employee well-being and development



At Affinity Workforce, we understand that a positive work environment is essential for attracting top talent, driving employee engagement, and ultimately delivering exceptional results for our clients and candidates.


Below are just some of the perks, benefits and initiatives we’ve introduced over the past few years that go above and beyond to make sure the team feels empowered, supported and rewarded.

Flexible working opportunities


We recognise the importance of work-life balance and understand that each employee has unique responsibilities and commitments outside of work.


To accommodate diverse needs, we offer flexible working opportunities and hybrid hours. This allows our employees to avoid rush hour by adjusting their work hours to come into the office earlier or later, as well as providing flexibility for dropping off children at school or attending personal appointments.


Our flexible working arrangements empower employees to manage their time effectively, reducing stress and enhancing overall well-being.

Clear career progression


At Affinity, we believe in providing clear pathways for career progression.


That’s why we have established a transparent career progression framework that outlines the steps for advancement within the company. Each employee discusses their career goals with their manager, who provides guidance and support throughout their career journey.


By offering clear career pathways, we empower our employees to set and achieve their professional goals, creating a sense of purpose and fulfillment in their roles.

Learning and development with Affinity Academy


Continuous learning is important for personal and professional growth. That’s why all our employees have access to Affinity Academy, our dedicated learning and development platform.


Through Affinity Academy, employees have access to a wide range of training materials and resources covering various topics relevant to their roles, such as GDPR, sales techniques, leadership, candidate relationship building, and industry best practices.


Our commitment to ongoing learning and development ensures that our employees have the knowledge and skills they need to excel in their roles and advance their careers.

Looking ahead to the future


As we celebrate our recognition as one of the Sunday Times’ Best Places to Work, we are also looking towards the future with a commitment to becoming the company most admired for its people.


Our vision for the future is to create a workplace culture where every member of the Affinity family feels empowered to thrive and reach their full potential. Whether it’s through mentorship programs, leadership development initiatives, or access to cutting-edge training resources through Affinity Academy, we are committed to providing our employees with the tools and support they need to excel in their roles and beyond.


Our goal is to continuously raise the bar for workplace standards in the education recruitment industry. By always putting our employees at the forefront of what we do, we believe that we can continue to build upon our success and solidify our position as one of the best places to work in the UK.

To our team members, clients, and partners – thank you for your continued support and commitment to making Affinity Workforce a truly great place to work. Here’s to many more successes and milestones ahead!
