Job Description

New Directions are currently recruiting for Newly Qualified Teachers to join our successful team of supply staff.

We have recently become the preferred supplier in Powys, following our success as the preferred supplier in other Welsh Counties, for example, Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire. Therefore, we are very busy at the moment and have positions to cover day to day sickness, as well as long-term contracts. It is a great way to get yourself introduced to the local schools, either to gain more regular supply work or obtain a permanent role.

We are very flexible and work around your availability to get the hours to suit your needs. We are going into our busiest period now and it really is the best time to join us if you are looking to secure work for the rest of the year.

Access to your own vehicle is preferable as many of the schools are not accessible by public transport. However, we do have some staff who manage really well on public transport.
