We help schools find staff
The Teacher Network is a recruitment agency that specialises in finding staff for schools in South Africa. We do not supply schools in other countries with South African teachers (with the occasional exception of ISASA members in neighbouring countries). We help schools find teachers for permanent and temporary, full-time and part-time posts as well as other school staff. Most of our clients are independent schools but we also work for some state schools. We have clients in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and Limpopo Province.
Need a teacher?
If you are a school looking for staff, send us an e-mail, giving the information we need to help you find the right person or phone us. Please include start and (if appropriate) end date, and whether the post is full-time or part-time.
If you are a teacher looking for a new post:
e-mail us your CV. If you haven't heard from us within three weeks, please re-send it. Our VACANCIES page gives information about inherent requirements of the vacancies. The CV MAGIC page has been written especially for teachers, and you may find it helpful. NB Non-South Africans/SA Residents need work permits. We do not assist you in obtaining these unfortunately.
If you are a teacher looking for a replacement for yourself:
suggest that Principal contacts The Teacher Network.
If you really really really want to leave teaching, please send us your CV.
We also have clients in the commercial world who sometimes want to employ ex-teachers.
What does the service cost?
It costs the applicant nothing. Charging a registration fee is considered unethical by the industry's professional body, and is usually illegal in terms of The Skills and Development Act 97 of 1998 (Sub-regulation 8A & B) - unless the registration fee is less than R 1 (one Rand). Our fee for finding a teacher for a normal teaching post in a South African school is 8% of the teacher's gross annual package in the first year of employment, and (subject to certain conditions) we offer a 100 Day Guarantee. There are different fees for placing someone in an admin post, a Principal post, a part-time post, or a post where the employer is not a school in South Africa, and these are spelt out in our Terms of Business.
“Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us.
Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.” (Andy Rooney)
