Find your perfect job and help improve school life in Manchester

There are over 170 schools in Manchester where teachers, support staff, governors and parents work together to raise aspirations and achievements of pupils.

Manchester is one of the most improved and improving urban centres in the country for pupil achievement. In addition, Ofsted reports indicate that teachers in Manchester schools display highly effective and sometimes exceptional teaching methods.

If you want to play your part in the raising aspirations and achievements of Manchester 's younger learners there are several ways to find teaching work in Manchester schools. 

Teaching and non-teaching vacancies in central Manchester Schools can be found on the Eteach website (external site).

Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)

Manchester no longer operates an NQT Talent Pool, however this is currently under review and may be re-introduced in 2014.  For a list of the current vacancies open to NQT’s in central Manchester schools, please visit Eteach (external site).

Supply Teaching

There are a number of ways to seek work as a supply teacher. Manchester City Council no longer holds a supply list for supply teachers, but teachers can contact schools directly to register their interest and availability. You can use our Schoolfinder to find school contact details.

Alternatively, you can register with DfE approved supply agencies. We recommend that you select agencies that hold the DCSF 'Quality Mark' (external site) in the Manchester area.

Overseas Teachers

Overseas teachers and those teachers who have trained outside of England and Wales will need to visit the Department for Education (DfE) website for information on the requirements/qualifications needed to teach in England and Wales. Note: This also applies to teachers from Ireland and Scotland , you must contact the NCTL to obtain the necessary clearance before applying for posts in England.
