Work for us
We are looking for passionate and hard-working people to make a positive difference, drive improvement and raise standards.
To ensure our staff achieve their full potential we aim to provide staff with an inspiring environment, supportive culture, training and career opportunities.
Rivers is a progressive trust and we are keen to provide opportunities for professional development and growth for our staff. Staff benefit from having access to The Rivers Teaching Alliance which provides high quality professional development including Initial Teacher Training and School to School Support.
Staff have access to a wider network of colleagues and professionals to share ideas and learn from the work and best practice of their counterparts.
Staff also benefit from career opportunities and succession planning, including at leadership level. Staff who have the skills to support individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools have access to secondment opportunities, which provides new challenges and helps to develop confidence and ability to mentor and coach others.
“I would definitely recommend members of staff take up these opportunities as I personally can see how it has made me more confident as a teacher and leader and improved my teaching style". Steph Butler Assistant Head at St Clement
