We recruit and supply teachers and support staff to schools and nurseries this can be on a temporary, contract or permanent basis. What makes us different is our team!

  • Writing adverts
  • Interviewing
  • Conducting safeguarding checks
  • Promoting Smile on social media
  • Searching for CVs on job boards
  • Attending fairs promoting Smile
Once you have hit your initial targets you will begin your business development training and start running your “own patch”. So, you will be given an area of schools to win business from, you will then:

Kash a graduate who joined us in 2015 has just bought his first home, since joining Smile he has had 3 holidays every year, been promoted 5 times and spend 4 weeks one summer travelling around Thailand (a big advantage of the long school holidays). He said:

“I never thought I’d have so many opportunities and experiences so young in life. Even though it’s been challenging, the rewards make it worth it. It’s even better enjoying work with supportive colleagues who are now friends. This was especially important to me, resettling back home after living away at university.”

I've worked for 'Smile' for nearly a year now and am more than satisfied with them. They listen carefully to my needs and cater for me excellently. As someone who uses public transport, they always strive to find me local schools (who I regularly return to).


I regularly recommend Smile to anyone that would be suitable for supply work and give examples of how effective Smile has been in my own career progression; including the commitment from staff and lovely relationships built.


I don't think I would enjoy my job so much if it wasn't for Emma and smile’s agency.  From day one she has made me feel welcome and Emma is very polite and easy to get on with. I feel I can phone Emma with any problems I have and I am always guaranteed a reply the same day.


Smile as a company have been great at being helpful and communicating regularly.  Emma was honest and friendly and really gave me a personal service catered to my personal needs – texting me details as it is easier to reply and read while at work or on the go. 


You found me a school that is 3 miles from where I live, and which suited me perfectly. The children, staff and parents are fantastic. I felt valued and part of the team at Langley Primary School, Oldbury. All the consultants I have dealt with have been friendly and listen to what my school requirements are.


Thank you for having me, it was a pleasure to work for you. Smile has made it possible for me to further my career and gain valuable experience in a variety of schools. Katy is amazing, friendly, helpful and excellent at her job
