Who are Opus Teach?
Opus Teach are a supply agency based in Ipswich, who are wholly owned by Suffolk County Council, currently recruiting for supply teachers in schools located across Suffolk. We are looking for teachers based anywhere in Suffolk from Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Ipswich, Southwold to Bungay - all across the county.
We operate from 7am - 5pm Monday - Friday and have our own booking system which runs 365 days a year 24/7, allowing schools to book wherever and whenever. As one of our teachers, you will have complete control over your availability and the positions you choose to accept. You will receive texts from our booking system when you are requested, allowing you to easily accept. Of course, we will call you if preferred and still build a relationship with you however you prefer and communicate with you how you wish.
We have worked continually throughout the pandemic, supporting schools, and providing placements for teachers wanting to work throughout. We have processes in place to ensure safety is a priority with schools filling in COVID Questionnaires for each booking and weekly fit to work statements needing to be signed. It is important to note that all interviews / verification calls are taken place remotely via Microsoft Teams during this time.
What do our teachers say?
David, Primary Teacher(based in West Suffolk):
"My experience with Opus Teach has been a consistently positive one. They absolutely care about making sure the teacher AND the school role are right for each other. In our profession it is often too easy for a recruitment company to just see teachers and their roles as one size fits all. Opus instead, seeks to match you to the role you are suited to. This means I can deliver to the very best of my ability and provide an educational environment the school and the pupils deserve. As teachers, we know how important communication is, both educationally and professionally. Opus works hard to keep in touch with their teachers so they can best provide the support we need when in and searching for a position. It continues to be a great experience being an Opus teacher and one I would recommend to anyone in the same situation."
