New DfE national teacher vacancy service for schools

The DfE have launched a national recruitment website that is free for schools to use. The website is now called ‘Teaching Vacancies’ and can be used by headteachers looking for staff and teachers looking for jobs.

As part of the commitment to supporting teacher recruitment and reducing unnecessary costs to schools, the DfE have launched a national recruitment website that is free for schools to use. The website is now called ‘Teaching Vacancies’ and can be used by headteachers looking for staff and teachers looking for jobs.

The vacancy service is being rolled out in phases over geographical areas and adapted in response to how the site is performing.  Schools in East Sussex have now been invited to register and should be able to advertise vacancies once they have accepted the invitation and created an account.

Based on a theory of viral change it is expected that the number of vacancies advertised will increase as the website is used.

If you have problems using the service, including issues with your account or sign-in, please email teaching.vacancies@education.gov.uk
