Here at Tara we understand the challenges schools and teachers face in finding that perfect match
If you’re a teacher or cover supervisor looking for a permanent, contract or daily supply position, then you’ve come to the right place. With many years of combined experience in education recruitment, the TARA team is armed with a wealth of knowledge and an excellent contacts book across the Telford, Shropshire, West Midlands and Staffordshire regions.
Having developed strong working relationships with schools and teachers alike, we believe in providing long-term support, rather than ‘quick fix’ appointments, and pride ourselves in working hard on your behalf for as long as you need us. Our success lies in our thorough understanding of schools’ unique requirements, matched with the desire to ensure that each and every child under the instruction of a TARA teacher receives the most appropriate care and attention to help them flourish.

I have worked for Tara for the last year and I have absolutely enjoyed it! From the first time I registered with the agency, I knew that they were a hard-working and friendly team. Matthew, the primary division consultant, has been great; very helpful, friendly and brilliant communication. He found me some great daily and long term cover in many lovely Shropshire schools.
I couldn't recommend the agency enough - if you're looking for a kind and pleasant team who understand your professionals needs, Tara is the agency for you!
Joining TARA has been an all-round positive experience. From my initial meeting I immediately realised that the staff were there to support me with finding teaching roles that suited my specific requirements, even if these changed week by week! I required maximum flexibility with my hours whilst juggling my family and running a business and the TARA team have allowed me to do just that.
The support has pretty much been around the clock, always on hand to answer questions that I may have. I have also felt extremely valued with my consultant, always offering thanks and praise, even when I have often felt it should be me offering thanks.
Overall I would not hesitate joining TARA if you long to teach more flexible days/hours surrounded by positivity and overall genuinely helpful, communicative people.
Thank you for all your support
After qualifying as a teacher I decided to join TARA to look for my first teaching job. Consultants at TARA offered a tailored service and helped me to find a school that is right for me. I have done two long term positions in fantastic schools and I can’t thank TARA enough. As a new teacher this enabled me to grow professionally and gain confidence. They are a friendly, honest and professional agency and do their very best to find the job that is suitable for you. I will not hesitate to recommend this agency to young and more experienced teachers. Thank you for your support and advice
It was great for so many supply teachers of other subjects to access this free course supported by Tara Professional Recruitment for updating our knowledge in GCSE secondary education maths and the new framework of the new 9 to 1 exam criteria and access to online learning to gain a maths certificate!
