Finding the right talent is hard and time consuming work. We have access to a deep bench of talent as well as personal and professional networks that we can tap. This means we can deliver specialized talent that is highly qualified to you faster and at an affordable price.
You want to diversify your pool but you are not having much success?

Is your organization going through a lot of change right now?
Change is tricky to manage. Both organizational growth and changing objectives may lead to the need for more or different employees. We are uniquely positioned to partner with you to collaboratively identify solutions that will enable your organization to meet these challenges head-on with the talent required to succeed including serving as headhunters for education administration.
How We Serve The Unique Talent and Recruiting Needs of the Education Sector
Like other K-12 sourcing firms and education headhunters, WorkMonger can provide full-service talent sourcing and selection services to ensure you successfully close a hiring process with the right new addition to your team. But we’re different in the following ways:
Sure, you could recruit and build your own talent pool, but we’ve already done that for you. We have a pool of thousands of talented professionals specifically looking for roles in education. As K-12 education headhunters, we are always recruiting so you don’t have to!
Face it – hiring is a lot of work. Whether you have a lean team, or you’re simply hiring for a lot of roles, sometimes you can just use an extra set of hands. At WorkMonger, as an education recruitment agency, Employers can outsource talent acquisition to us and simply wait for a shortlist of qualified candidates to show up in their inbox.
We are committed to providing services that meet or exceed our employer partners needs and requirements by providing education placement services and serving as K-12 education headhunters for education administration.
Data & Technology-Enabled, with a Personal Touch
We utilize our proprietary matching algorithm to compare our community of tens of thousands of education professionals with your organization and role. Our team of talent experts then manually review each and every potential JobSeeker match and confirm their interest in advance, giving you the best of both worlds: the power (and lower price!) of data and technology, coupled with expert, personalized service.
A Commitment to Diversity
At WorkMonger, we value diversity. We know you do, too. We make it a priority to recruit JobSeekers who reflect the communities your organization serves. We are an education leadership recruitment agency that can help you identify the diverse talent required for your organization.
Talent You Wouldn’t Otherwise See
In addition to traditional active JobSeekers, we also have passive JobSeekers in our pool – those professionals who aren’t actively looking for a new job, but would switch for the right opportunity. These JobSeekers probably wouldn’t see a posting on your website or a job board, but they have completed our JobSeeker profile and could be a match for you.

Equity: At The Heart Of Our Work
All children deserve access to an excellent and equitable education that prepares them for a successful life of their choosing. But our system is failing to achieve this vision. Certain students, especially students of color are disproportionately underserved. We believe we need the right talent, particularly diverse talent that reflects all of our students, serving in meaningful roles at impact-driven education organizations.
WorkMonger Is A Cost-Effective Hiring Solution
Did you know that most education recruiting firms charge between 30-35% of first-year compensation for a placement. For the average role that costs more than $20,000! WorkMonger believes that all organizations should have access to the best talent so we offer affordable and transparent pricing options where you can select the level of support you require so you only pay for what you need. Our pricing starts at only 10% of first-year compensation making us the most affordable specialized full-service recruiting organization in the education sector.
An Affordable Option
Hiring is expensive. Online job boards, LinkedIn, Google ads, campus presentations – they all cost time and money. Search firms can cost 30% of first year compensation or more! Even “free” options end up costing you in your staff’s time spent weeding through stacks and stacks of resumes. Compared to the true cost of running your own search or hiring an expensive education search firm, we are often cheaper.
Debundled Services - Pay for What You Need, Not What You Don’t
Education search firms often require you to pay for more than you need (or can afford). Perhaps you only need help with sourcing and you want to manage the selection process. Or, perhaps you want a firm to manage sourcing plus the first-round phone screen, but nothing else. Whatever your need, WorkMonger will structure a package that meets it – saving you money in turn for your mission-critical work.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of organizations does WorkMonger work with?
We work with all types of organizations in the broader education sector, including: school districts, public charter schools, community colleges, foundations, government agencies, support organizations, education technology companies, policy/advocacy organizations, and more. If your organization (or a team within your organization) is working to ensure children have access to an excellent education, either directly or indirectly, we want to work with you. Check out some of the Employers we have worked with here.
What is a non-teaching job in education?
We focus on non-teaching jobs in the education sector, such as jobs in finance, operations, curriculum design, strategy, fundraising and development, program management, administration, policy, advocacy, principals and instructional coaches, human capital management, legal, information technology, facilities management, and more. Check out some of our JobSeeker success stories here to see examples of roles we’ve filled.
Does WorkMonger only match full-time roles? What about part-time or project-based work?
Thus far, the majority of our submitted roles have been traditional full-time roles. However, we also believe that the workforce and workplace are changing, giving way to an increasing number of professional part-time, short-term, or independent contracting gigs. So, if you are looking to fill a non-teaching role that is part-time or project-based, many of our JobSeekers are looking for those opportunities as well.
Do WorkMonger JobSeekers all have prior work experience in education? What about the private sector?
Our JobSeekers have all types of professional backgrounds. Many of our JobSeekers fall into one of two categories: (a) former educators looking to transition outside of the classroom or (b) non-education professionals looking to transition from the private sector into the education sector to make a greater impact with their careers. We also have many JobSeekers who are currently non-teaching professionals in education who are simply looking for their next role. We know that in certain roles, you may be seeking a candidate with teaching or education-related experience, but in other roles you may value private sector experience (or both). Bottom line, no matter what type of candidate you are looking for, we likely have a JobSeeker for you!
If you are trying to improve education, why do you focus on non-teaching jobs?
Great question! At WorkMonger, we know that nothing within a school is more important than a high-quality teacher in front of each and every student. Standing behind every teacher are professionals running budgets, operations, human capital, data analysis, curriculum innovation, and policy. Education is a $1.5 trillion industry with complex managerial issues to address. We know from our team’s deep subject matter expertise that these support offices and organizations need innovative professionals to support great teachers from outside the classroom. That’s where we come in.
Why do you only serve education? Will you be serving other causes in the future?
We serve education primarily because (1) we are deeply passionate about ensuring every child has access to an excellent education and (2) we have extensive expertise and networks in the education sector. At this stage in our organization’s growth, we realize that we can’t be all things to all people with excellence. By limiting our focus to a specific cause (education), we can greatly increase the quality of our matches. Our long-term vision has not changed however; in future years, we plan to add additional causes in the social impact sector that we can serve.
What geographic area does WorkMonger serve?
We are nation-wide with JobSeekers and Employers all across the country. Our JobSeekers can specify which geographic areas they are willing to work in, including indicating that they would move anywhere for the right role or that they are only seeking virtual work. This maximizes the JobSeeker pool we are able to access for each of your roles. As for the WorkMonger team itself, we’re based in Austin, Texas.
Does WorkMonger serve organizations outside of the United States?
Currently, we only serve education organizations hiring for roles that will be based in the United States and those JobSeekers who have the proper authorization to work in the United States. We realize that there are children in need of an excellent education worldwide, and we hope to one day be able to expand globally to meet their needs as well.
Does WorkMonger offer a discounted rate for multiple roles?
Yes, we offer bulk rate pricing on some levels of service. If you’re interested in learning about these discounts, email [email protected] for more information.
