Which websites do you use to look for teaching jobs?

I'd only ever look on tes.

Apparently not all jobs are advertised there any more though, so they're missing out on people like me who don't bother trawling though other places. It's too expensive to advertise in tes now apparently hmm

Most schools in our LA - yes, we still have one!- only advertise on the LA's own website.

The two local LEA (or weird company that's taken it over) websites for me.

We have a local website for our LEA. I have never looked at jobs on the TES.

Our local school advertise on eteach? A lot of schools have vacancies sections on their websites?

When I have been jobhunting I have looked at TES, local LEA websites and individual websites for independent schools. I also keep in touch with friends who teach my subject locally to see if they know of any jobs coming up

Council website every week just to see what's happening.
Sometimes check eteach and tes too

It's £1200 to advertise in the TES! It cannot be sustainable, surely?

Local LEA website!
Also check school websites directly.

I'm in a Facebook group for my subject and there's often vacancies posted on there.

LEA website for teachers
TES + LEA website for Head Teachers
LEA website + local press + facebook job sites for support staff.

It is pointless spending money we don't have on TES teacher adverts, it isn't an area many people move to from the rest of the UK.

The cost of nationwide advertising must surely be contributing to the teacher recruitment crisis. How on earth can teachers be targetted if schools can't afford to make them aware of their vacancies beyond their count borders?

I honestly think yoire restricting yourself.if you just look at tes. Our local ones often aren't advertised there at all.

I would look at tes, local govt, and eteach.

When I was looking for jobs a couple of years ago, I put my CV on Reed and have been inundated with opportunities ever since.
