I need a job

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by MUSICJO, Dec 8, 2015.

    I need advice on getting a job. I am currently doing supply and doing a degree in another subject for 2 days a week. I need a job for Mon-wed as supply is terrible. I have earnt just over a grand in 3 months and we are really struggling financially. There seems to be little work and it's a nightmare getting early morning phone calls whilst I am trying to organize child care. The money is also terrible. The problem is there are no jobs advertised and the posts I have been offered through supply are full time. Is there any merit in contacting schools directly and sending my cv?
    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Part time work usually goes to the teachers already working in a school I'm afraid. They are highly sought after posts.
    Most advertised posts are full time unless you are fitting into a secondary school timetable.
    The main factors affecting employment are
    Are you primary or secondary?
    Where you are located?
