Job Description

A*Star Teachers has had an unprecedented demand from schools throughout Greater London in the past 6 months for Humanities specialists. At the moment we are unable to match the needs of all of our client schools due to the shortage of teachers generally, but particularly for subjects such as History and Geography. Our secondary team consists of qualified teachers who have moved into recruitment, I myself am a former Head of Department in History and former 2nd in Faculty for Humanities. With that in mind we feel ideally placed within the market to work "with" and "on behalf of" our teachers.

We are looking to address the shortfall of teachers in the Humanities subjects by inviting relevant candidates to get in touch with our team in order to outline what they expect from a long-term or permanent role. We want to be flexible but equally ambitious in how we represent both our teachers and schools. We are willing to look at all the aspects that can attract teachers to work in a particular school and move forward from there by organising trials/interviews etc.

As a rule A* Star tends to work off the back of a detailed and focused reference strategy designed to leave potential employers with little option but to meet with our candidates. With that we ask all prospective candidates to be lively and positive in confirming where they have made an impact in their teaching, where there is evidence of positive impact, we work from there.

Regardless of your experience in the profession. If you are a qualified Humanities teachers and if you believe that beyond the relevant teaching qualifications that you possess the necessary attributes to teach here in London, we want to hear from you. A*Star Teachers has been a leading player in the market for over 10 years and we will use all our experience both in education and in the recruitment sector to create "winning teams" in schools.

For more information please contact Ken or Spencer on the secondary desk on for an initial consultation and more importantly to hear about our vacancies.
