Long term supply mortgage

    Hi everyone! I was hoping someone out there could help me. I currently work long term supply in a school (3 days a week) but I do not have a contract with them. This is proving to be a problem as I am looking to buy a house and finding a mortgage is proving to be nearly impossible. I know that I am guaranteed these 3 days as the class teacher who I work with only works 2 days. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can actually prove I have regular employment?

    Thanks in advance

    Just wondering but how are you going to pay the mortgage if you can't get another long term placement?

    To be honest, unless you are full-time employed, you might find that getting any financial services as an agency worker is almost impossible. I wish I could give you better news.

    This is why there is a lobby of supply agencies in October.

    There are so many reasons why schools should source their staff directly, not least because agency staff have little or no employment rights and no job security.
