N/A Why use the Schools' Post for your school? At PLP we know how hard, and expensive, it can be to recruit the right teaching staff. The Schools’ Post was set up specifically to reduce the prohibitive costs for schools looking to effectively address their recruitment needs. • The Schools’ Post offers member schools a best value proposition – you can’t recruit as cost effectively with a purely commercial provider. • We understand the needs of our schools and The Schools’ Post has the best interest of schools (not profit maximisation) as the priority. • The Schools’ Post website offers live jobs and job alerts with a viewable digital magazine that is updated weekly and on-line nationally with links sent directly to School Associations in Cornwall, Exeter, Bristol and Plymouth. To increase its coverage and access a wider range of candidates, the Schools’ Post is multi-channel and not only has a website (www.theschoolspost.co.uk) and social media presence (Twitter and Linked-In) for new job alerts, but there is also an interactive weekly job magazine available for all to view on The Schools’ Post website. Prospective teachers who register also receive a direct email job alert whenever a new job is posted in their preferred KS or area of interest. Advertising schools and PLP member schools also benefit further by receiving a full colour printed weekly job magazine at no extra charge. The Schools’ Post is flexible to meet the needs and budgets of schools and we understand that because of restricted timelines to recruit within, there is a need to be effective in that recruitment window. Depending on the budget and type of job, schools are simply able to tailor their adverts.

Supply Plus Room 129 University of St Mark & St John Derriford Road Plymouth PL6 8BH Tel: 01752 784436 Email: supplyplus@plpcic.co.uk www.supplyplus.org.uk

Business Managers School Support Staff / Administrators Parent Support Advisers (PSA’s) Caretakers We realise there is a squeeze on school budgets and that demonstrating bestvalue in all areas is a priority.

Just as it is with our teachers we aim to deliver the highest standard of supply with quality being our main focus. As a schools owned company, Supply+ shares the same values and metrics for success as our schools. All of these positions are self-managed, flexible and will enable staff to continue with their contracted hours and access opportunities for additional work. Staff will be able to update their availability on-line to flexibly approach their work/life balance by being with Supply+. This will also enable schools to access the experienced staff they need, when they need it. Key benefits to working with Supply Plus

Supply Plus is supported by schools as a first choice supply source. Supply Plus is a part of Plymouth Learning Partnership (PLP) CoOperative CIC, which means it's not a profit driven commercial company and its core motivation is not merely profit generation. Becoming a Supply+ staff member enables staff and schools to "try before you buy" to fulfill staffing positions. Through working with our partners we are able to offer subsidised or free professional development. Unlike commercially motivated agencies, Supply Plus has no financial barriers to schools to take on any of our staff - there are no commercial transfer fees for any permanent positions secured through us. We are continually recruiting new staff and placing people into work in schools. If you would like to find out more or to apply please visit our website: supplyplus.org.uk or call 01752 784436
