About Us

Teachers UK is part of Operam Education Group, a network of education recruitment agencies that cover the North and the Midlands. Established in 1997 by experienced Education Recruitment Consultants, Teachers UK has developed very close working relationships with schools in the East Midlands.

We have extensive expertise in recruiting for educators, we understand what makes a great candidate and why it is important to consider their personality and interests as well as their professional experience. Our extensive, long-term relationships with local schools means we are positioned in understanding their needs so we can offer workforce solutions quickly and effectively, adding capacity in the classroom. We appreciate the importance of finding schools workforce solutions quickly and the urgency that is sometimes required for communication for smooth running of schools. This is why we offer a 7 day service which is conducive for those emergency bookings when you need someone the next or even the same day.
