Recruiting The Very Best

The Compass Partnership of Schools seeks to recruit the very best staff. Great learning and teaching are at the heart of everything we do. Our success is determined by the way we innovate and improve them both.

Our exceptional teachers, support staff and leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds, but they all share a deeply held commitment to give our children an outstanding education in an inspiring and happy school environment. 

Rewarding experience 

Each day in our schools presents a unique opportunity to contribute to the shaping and growth of young minds. You'll play a vital role in supporting the achievements of our pupils, and experience the immense satisfaction of witnessing their progress. Furthermore, you'll find yourself working in a dynamic and diverse environment, ensuring your role is constantly stimulating and allows you to make a real, lasting difference.

Professional Growth Opportunities 

The Compass Partnership of Schools is firmly committed to the ongoing development of our exceptional staff . This also improves the quality of the educational experience for all our children. We recognise the value of our team members and believe they deserve opportunities to excel throughout their careers. This dedication is reflected in our comprehensive programme of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). Through this program, we offer a range of stimulating opportunities:

  • Regular Coaching: Enjoy at least 3 supportive professional development conversations a year with your manager where you discuss your skills development, well-being, and career aspirations. 
  • A range of formal and informal learning options, including leadership programmes, workshops, conferences, mentoring, and online courses, tailored to teaching and support staff alike. 
  • Expanding their horizons by shadowing colleagues or even working across our other schools within the Trust family 
  • Observed practice of each other and with each other is central to our drive to build a professional learning community, which harnesses the best quality research and builds collective capital for school improvement.

Thrive in a Supportive and Collaborative Community

At The Compass Partnership of Schools, collaboration is key. Our team members consistently praise the supportive environment and strong sense of teamwork within our schools. You'll never feel like you are alone– you'll be surrounded by passionate colleagues who are invested in your success. This sense of community extends beyond your school walls. The wider Compass network offers continuous support and provides a wealth of growth opportunities, no matter your role – whether you're a support staff member, an ECT (Early Career Teacher), a qualified teacher, or a school leader.

Join a Forward-Thinking Trust Where You Can Make a Difference

We are a Trust that embraces ambition and innovation. This commitment extends to all our staff members. If you're looking for a place to collaborate, learn, and make a real impact, then we could be your perfect fit.

Our Values: Supporting You Every Step of the Way

Optimism, Ambition, and Resilience – these are the cornerstones of our Compass family. Being part of our team means working in a positive and respectful environment where you're never alone. Our staff collaborate across schools in areas like safeguarding, assessment, and teaching. We constantly explore fresh delivery methods, supporting each other every step of the way. This collaborative spirit allows us to share the workload effectively. Easy access to leaders, open communication, and a strong feedback culture ensure you always have the support you need to thrive.

Wellbeing Matters  

Staff well-being is key to our success, and that’s why we provide non-contractual benefits such as our employee assistance programme where support is available 24/7 including confidential independent counselling to our staff and their families. Our Wellbeing Strategy focuses on changes to workplace practices and culture to support the well-being of our staff and to make our Trust an excellent place to work. Our Occupational health service is a confidential service for all our staff, offering advice on personal health, safety and welfare at work. Our regular staff survey helps school leaders to understand their teams, their motivations and how to ensure that all employees feel valued. 

Financial Benefits 

We at least match national pay and conditions within the education sector. Our sick pay, maternity and paternity pay meet or exceed national standards.  All staff are auto-enrolled into either the defined benefit Local Government Pension Scheme or the Teachers' Pension Scheme. These schemes include a generous employer contribution. If this isn’t right for you right now, you can opt out of the scheme at any time.  

Our Employee Benefits Platform allows all staff to access a range of products and services at reduced rates as well as discounts from a huge range of retailers.

Family-Friendly Policies 

The Trust offers flexible working to encourage staff to have a better work-life balance, including part-time hours, term-time-only working and job shares, and we offer generous policies and generous entitlements in respect of Maternity, Paternity and Adoption.
