A PRESTWICH teaching provider has been named as one of the UK’s top places to work.

Justtachers has scooped the Best Workplace Award from the Great Place to Work Institute after it was put forward by its employees.

The company is one of Greater Manchester’s leading recruiters and suppliers of nursery nurses, teachers and school support staff, helping to combat staff shortages in the sector as pupil numbers grow.

The annual awards recognise companies that create positive and engaging places to work, where employees feel trusted and valued.

Caroline Cafferty, operations director at justteachers, said: “We consistently recognise and reward the contribution of all our staff, not just through a generous and transparent remuneration package but with continual team focused incentives.

“We also encourage a relaxed and fun working environment with emphasis on well-being; ability to leave early and flexibility to have extra lunch breaks for such things as fitness activity.”
