1. Applying for positions

We are currently accepting applications for positions starting after Easter of the 2017-2018 academic year and in September of the 2018-2019 academic year - you can apply until 31 May 2018.

If we accept your application, we will add it to our Secondary Database, and send it to schools with suitable vacancies - schools will carry out shortlisting, interviewing and appointment themselves.

It is your responsibility to contact the council, should you need your Easter application carried over to the September 2018 recruitment process.

Please tell us if you secure a position.

2. Other ways to find a position in Lambeth

As well as using the Secondary Database, schools also advertise vacant posts which are suitable for NQTs.

Advertisements usually appear in the Times Educational Supplement and on the TES website. If you are interested in an advertised vacancy, you should apply directly to the school.
