Most of our client schools look for teachers with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). More information on QTS and eligibility can be found on the government website:

Many of our clients ask us to find teaching assistants for them, or non-teaching support staff. These roles do not require QTS and include:

  • Caretakers
  • SIMS administrators
  • School secretaries
  • Business managers
  • IT support staff
  • Science and ICT technicians
  • Exam invigilators

Don’t just take our word for it. David is a facilities team leader – a caretaker in a primary school – and explains how the team at Pertemps Education used hard work, professional manner and good judgement to find him the new position he was looking for.

Work and jobs

Our client schools ask us to fill day to day supply assignments, long-term temporary contracts (from around 6 weeks), fixed term or permanent contracts.

“The team at Pertemps Education has restored my faith in agencies, making me feel like an individual rather than just another number.”

We work with schools, academies and multi-academy trusts to help them find the temporary, long term and permanent teaching staff, educational professionals and support staff they need.

The majority of our clients are primary and secondary schools in London and the south east of England. We also work with nurseries, post-16 institutions, and SEND specialists.

“I would recommend Pertemps to anyone looking for a role in education.” 

Our clients are located right across the south east of England and we regularly work with schools in London, Essex and Suffolk. We offer vacancies in towns, cities and rural locations.
