Are you a qualified teacher current seeking flexible work for the Summer term?
Or would you like to gain additional experience working in local schools in preparation for September?

Tradewind Recruitment proudly works with multiple secondary schools and academies throughout Essex and Suffolk who will have a regular need for diligent, punctual and reliable teachers to cover the day-to-day and ongoing absence of their teaching staff. Depending on your location, flexibility and transport, you may also able to work with client schools in neighbouring areas across East Anglia (including by not limited to - Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Ipswich, Braintree, Colchester and Haverhill).

Supply teaching is the perfect solution for teachers who are keen to boost their income or are simply not looking for the commitment of a full-time teaching post. It provides a great source of income, gives you flexibility in your work life and allows you to gain experience from a number of schools. If you are ideally seeking an ongoing role, many short term supply bookings can lead into long term and permanent positions which are likely to pay you to scale. The Summer term is the perfect time to make these connections if your are looking for September.

There is a high demand for Supply Teachers and cover staff as school life continues to return to normal, therefore, we are always recruiting for enthusiastic and hard-working teachers to work on a daily basis. We will always try to work to your specialisms, however, you may be expected to cover a variety of supply needs across all year groups and subjects.

As a Supply Teacher or Cover Supervisor you will be delivering and distributing work for the students (either to the whole class or smaller groups) which has been prepared by their class teacher. You will ensure high standards of learning and behaviour are maintained in the teacher's absence.

Hold an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, or be prepared to put one in process.
Hold an Overseas Police Clearance (if applicable).
