A little bit about us and our ideas

SupplyNow is the most intuitive staffing solution for the education sector. Its founders, Simon, James and Aimi, are friends with a wealth of experience in education recruitment and background screening. They'd always dreamt of creating their own service for supply teaching staff, where schools and teachers could connect more simply and fairly.

Having worked with educators and schools for many years, they learnt what schools and teaching staff were looking for in a teaching agency and how they could connect the two more efficiently. They also believed it was essential that Supply Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Cover Supervisors and all supply staff earned more, and schools received a top service.

After thinking long and hard, they cracked it, and SupplyNow was born: the innovative staffing platform that combines cutting-edge technology with a passion for education! Having previously used technology to create a faster, cheaper and easier DBS process, they knew it could be done.

The SupplyNow app creates a better connection between schools and supply staff - or as we like to call them, Supply Heroes. Upon registration, Supply Heroes set the job types they're looking for and distances they're prepared to travel - our in-house compliance team carries out the vetting. Schools can then create job alerts, which go directly to candidates who have matching requirements, and they either accept or decline - it's really that simple!

Our fantastic support team are on hand if you have any issues with the platform, or want to discuss recruitment in more detail.

Our Supply Heroes can also benefit from a #FairPayNow Guarantee, which is our promise to you that we will beat any rate you find for an equivalent job through a supply teacher agency.

We created our ground-breaking platform because we believe in a more straightforward, fairer way to fill supply bookings. It's our mission to give supply staff easier access to great work and to help schools save time and money for the day-to-day delivery of the curriculum.
