My Recruitment Agency

Key Stage Teacher Supply is part of Operam Education Group, a network of education recruitment agencies that cover the North and the Midlands. Established in 2000, Key Stage Teacher Supply has developed a premium supply agency reputation and very close collaborative relationships with local schools over many years in order to deliver workforce solutions effectively and efficiently in Lancashire and Cumbria.

We are passionate about finding great education jobs for great candidates and work hard to understand what you are looking for in a role and why.

Your consultant will check you are happy in your role, find solutions to any issues you may have and ensure that your needs are being met.  When you are finishing an assignment or becoming available again, as your supply agency we actively market you to our schools in order to line up your next supply role.

We offer a supported process that treats everyone with respect, professionalism whether you are support staff, an inspiring NQT looking for your first role in education, an experienced teacher ready for a new challenge or a retired teacher who still has got a lot to offer.
