Looking for work?

We work with Primary Schools establishing excellent working relationships with our schools.

Types of Work Available

Day to day supply

This is great for flexibility and gives you the opportunity to work in different schools without the stress of full time duties.

Long term assignments

For staff looking for variety with the safety of semi-permanent positions, long-term supply could be the perfect choice. We will ask you your thoughts about the role and its requirements before sending your details to schools

Temporary to Permanent

When a teacher has been at a school for a time and the school has got to know them, they are often considered for any permanent positions that arise.


We support schools in recruiting for permanent positions which we will advertise on our website.

Claire's is a fantastic team, with a family atmosphere, but never-the-less totally professional. They listen to the needs of both schools and supply staff, matching those needs with great efficiency and sorting any queries quickly.

Claire’s is the best supply agency I have worked with. Everyone there is friendly, approachable and knowledgable. They clearly really care about their teachers and their schools and try hard to match them well. There is nothing pushy or corporate about Claire’s, which I have found with so many other agencies and they allow me to be flexible and really enjoy my work. I honestly could not recommend them more!

An amazing agency to work for. I’ve been teaching with Claire’s for about two years and they give me lots of work in decent, pleasant schools. If you want a friendly agency that cares, listens to what you’re looking for and takes the time to ask how your day was etc, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending! Special mention to Sarah and Claire. Thank you!

As a current employee of Claire's school solutions I would like to take out the time to just say how amazing this agency is, they are professional and also extremely hard working as well as caring and you do not find that in many agencies. Claire's school solutions helped me to find a role that was best suited for me which I extremely appreciate, they also are very considerate towards your own situations, they gave me the opportunity to start in a school local to me with my qualifications which is a massive help, I highly recommend them to everyone.
