About us

Teach in Herts is the dedicated recruitment platform for Hertfordshire schools and settings, and is managed by HFL Education, a not-for-profit schools’ support company.

Our site was originally created in 2001 for teacher recruitment, but later grew to include all staff involved in the smooth running of schools as well as other educational and childcare settings.

Today the site welcomes over 50,000 users every month, seeking to apply for a wide range of school-based roles. 

As part of HFL Education, our expert team of experienced educationalists and HR professionals are well positioned to help you find ongoing training opportunities, networking groups, advice, information and support throughout your career. 

We work closely with local schools, multi academy trusts and childcare settings to ensure we understand and address their specific needs and challenges. This means we are in the very best position to advise job seekers and help them to secure positions in early years, teaching, professional and support roles and leadership.

We have built (and continue to add to) a library of online information, with webinars and recruitment fairs also part of our service:


We attend many events at universities, colleges and job centres, meeting students and job seekers and talking to them about opportunities in our schools.  

We also host our own Hertfordshire Schools Recruitment Fairs, which are a great opportunity for job seekers to come and talk to employers in person and to get lots of useful information and guidance from key industry professionals... look out for information on our spring recruitment fairs, coming soon!
