Early Career Teacher Jobs



Why would I choose to send my CV to an education recruitment agency when I could apply to schools directly?


We would advise that you do both. The most important thing is that you find the right teaching job for you. Schools will advertise for teachers themselves, but some will come to an agency to advertise and recruit on their behalf. By registering with an education agency, you are simply spreading out your options to a wider audience of Head Teachers.

What are the benefits of registering with Career Teachers as an ECT?


We have excellent relationships with a range of Primary, Secondary and SEND schools throughout the UK.


Once you have registered with Career Teachers we will be able to speak to Head Teachers and decision makers in schools directly about your experiences and why you are the right person for the job. Consultants will be able to apply for multiple teaching jobs on your behalf without you needing to complete a vast number of lengthy application forms.


We have a fantastic in-house training and development team of experienced teachers and ECT mentors who will be on hand to assist you with interview preparation, lesson planning support and trial day guidance. We also have a wide range of CPD training available to all teachers and support staff once they start working with us. 

How can we support you?


  • Access to ECT positions that schools may not have advertised through the larger education press
  • Support to find a long-term – permanent position to complete your ECT induction
  • Positions across Greater London and the Home Counties
  • Competitive rates of pay
  • ECT training and networking evenings giving advice and support for starting your teaching career
  • Free professional development training and access to teaching resources


If you have never thought of finding a job through an agency then it might be worth contacting your nearest branch, where you will be able to speak to an experienced education consultant. Whether you choose to work with us or not, our highly experienced team of recruiters, ex-teachers and training professionals will be able to give you some great advice to get your teaching career started. Please email a copy of your CV to and we will get in touch.
