East Lothian Council is looking for motivated, enthusiastic and flexible class teachers to join a new team of permanent supply teachers working in schools across East Lothian.  Successful applicants will be allocated to a base school and will benefit from a range of experiences gained from working at different schools covering longer term absences and vacancies.  At the end of 2 years, an option will be available to select a post in a named school.

Applicants will be required to travel across East Lothian to meet the needs of the post.

Post holders will be on a permanent contract and therefore the rate of pay will be the main grade teacher rate (subject to incremental increases) and not the supply teacher rate.
