Clearwater International advises TeacherActive on its investment from Pricoa

Clearwater International has advised TeacherActive, one of the largest education recruitment agencies in the UK, on its investment from Pricoa Private Capital (Pricoa).

The Birmingham-headquartered company with regional offices across England and Wales has grown successfully in recent years, led by Robin Browett. As experts in education, the business delivers well-established recruitment services to support outstanding learning experiences. With operations covering Primary, Secondary, Early Years, FE, and SEND, TeacherActive takes the worry out of temporary and permanent recruitment, to enable education settings to focus on their core competencies and to assist teacher development.

The experienced, talented, and ambitious management team have driven a service ethos based on flexible and quality solutions to acute and long-term requirements, via high-touch personal support reinforced with an efficient and tech-enabled back office function.

Pricoa provided a one-stop funding solution to support debt refinancing and shareholder recapitalisation, which simultaneously put in place incentives and ownership across a wide proportion of the employee base. TeacherActive’s long-standing management team continues to own a significant majority of the business.
