We’ve launched a Federation talent pool aimed at individuals looking to secure long term supply, flexible/part-time casual work, and fixed term contract work.

Our talent pool is a community of experienced teachers and NQTs, teaching assistants, senior leaders, and range of non-teaching staff who support Harris academies across London.

As a casual worker in our talent pool, we can offer a flexible fairer, better-paid approach to securing casual work.

Who is our Talent Pool for?

As part of our talent pool you’ll work directly with our academies, which means better pay, transparency and freedom in how you work with us.

If you are a teacher (qualified or unqualified), teaching assistant, or a member of support staff within a school, then our talent pool could be right for you. Our talent pool can be used as an alternative to working via a recruitment (supply) agency but does not prevent you from accepting work at a Harris Academy via one of our approved agencies.
As part of our talent pool, we’ll contact you about available opportunities that match your employment preferences, interests, travel commitments, and assignment types. Those registered in our talent pool can also apply to any permanent positions with the Federation.

What will you be joining?

Our talent pool is a growing network of local teachers and support staff who want a flexible, transparent and better paid approach to securing long-term supply teaching, casual work assignments with our academies directly. Those in our talent community work directly with our academies, not via an employment agency, and we do not use umbrella companies.
Joining our talent pool is FREE! Our aim is to help save our academies money and offer workers better rates of pay, greater transparency and more freedom in how you work with us. Ready to join? Apply today to find out more and start the process of registering for work in our talent pool.




As part of our talent pool you'll deal directly with our academies for great transparency on rates and future prospects.

You'll receive notifications about the jobs you're interested in.

Decide which jobs you're interested in and accept the work as and when you're available.
