Due to the expanding family of the mathematics team, we are looking to recruit a new member for a fixed term of 1 year to cover maternity leave.


Are you an outstanding Primary teacher or adviser who is passionate about improving children’s outcomes in Mathematics?


Do you have experience in leading on Mathematics and are looking for the next step in your career development?


Can you demonstrate how you have contributed to improved outcomes for children?


If this is you, then come and join the HfL team of Primary Mathematics Teaching and Learning Advisers (TLAs) where improving outcomes for children is our most important priority.

Your own learning curve will be steep but you will be well-supported throughout the journey by a highly skilled team who are at the cutting edge of educational practice. As a Mathematics Adviser, you will work alongside teachers and subject leaders to develop and refine subject knowledge and pedagogy. You will enhance your understanding of school effectiveness and will work with a wide range of other professionals. You will also develop and deliver training for teachers, both remotely and face-to-face. Experience of teaching in both KS1 and 2 would be desirable.

You will be self-motivated and flexible, with good IT skills, and be prepared to travel to schools throughout Hertfordshire and beyond. In return, you can expect excellent conditions of employment and exciting professional development opportunities.

Our ‘working from anywhere’ approach provides colleagues the opportunity to work flexibly in line with their role requirements. This consists of working on-site across various schools and settings, remote working and, if desired, up to 2 days per week in our Head Office in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. The ability to reach different locations by car will be essential for this role. If you drive, then a full driving licence and appropriate car insurance will be required. As there is a permanent home working element to this role, you will need to ensure you are equipped for home working.


For an informal discussion regarding the role, please contact David Cook via email on david.cook@hertsforlearning.co.uk and provide your mobile number so a mutually convenient time can be arranged to discuss the role.

HfL is committed to being an equal opportunities employer. We insist on the equal treatment of all current and prospective colleagues and will never condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.

HfL is also equally committed to becoming an anti-racist organisation and we encourage you to view our Anti-racist position statement  which gives clarity on our anti-racist stance. In our relentless efforts to be an anti-racist organisation, we recognise the negative impacts of under representation and lack of diversity in our organisation, our education system and in all aspects of our society. Therefore, for recruitment into any HfL post, where we have 2 or more candidates of equal merit, candidates with protected characteristics will be given advantage over candidates without such characteristics. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘tie-breaker’ and is referred to as ‘positive action’ in the Equality Act 2010.

To help us meet our high standards and aspirations of a fully diverse and inclusive workplace, we strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from all backgrounds to apply and to join us.

Please note that if you are invited to interview, we will expect you to be prepared to discuss unconscious bias with us; we find these conversations more than any others give us all a good idea of what working together will be like.
