"Supportive organisation, fantastic mission"

Positive Outlook


Staff well-being is a big focus with lots of incredible supportive and inclusive policies and perks in place. The mission of Teach First is fantastic and really underpins every decision that is made.


Lack of career progression opportunities at certain levels with a lot of competition for roles.

Interested in flexible working? Did you know nearly all our roles are flexible by default? Meaning you can ask about flexible working during the recruitment process, and you don't need to wait six months to put in a request when you start. Over a 100 of us already have a formal flexible working pattern in place. And many of us make use of our agile working policy, which gives our people the flexibility to flex hours and location of work. Take a look at our job descriptions. If you see this bit about flexible working we're open to hearing your ideas about how it can be done (job share, reduced hours, flexible hours and more).
