UK schools spend well over £2 bn per year on covering short term absences with supply teachers. The current model is exclusively reliant on agencies that charge a massive commission and are terribly inefficient (everything is paper and phone-call based). We are consolidating this analogue, fragmented, and inefficient marketplace onto a digital platform. Think Uber for supply teachers. In the process we'll pull hundreds of millions of waste out of the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.

We are well-funded by high-profile investors, have had significant early traction, and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London's most prominent tech companies.

Looking to make a difference?

This is your chance to join a tech startup on the ground floor. As an early employee you will play a significant role in the development of the company and have the opportunity for rapid career progression and learning.

What you would be doing?

• Ensure the smooth daily operations of the business including maintaining daily liquidity of candidates available for cover as well as ensuring fulfilment of any short-term bookings requests

• Deliver on key team metrics like how quickly teachers are available for work and how quickly they are sent out for their first day of work

• Conduct assessment and onboarding of candidates

• Increase the volume of talented candidates and ensure a good experience for them by matching their skills to schools’ requirements

• Work collaboratively with the sales and the technology team to continuously improve efficiency in delivering value to schools and candidates.

• Get your hands dirty. Like any true start-up, no two weeks will be the same and a general interest in ‘mucking in’ and just getting the job done is crucial
