Thumbs Up to Gumtree!

Finding a qualified teacher used to be a huge problem, however after using Gumtree recently we managed to find more than a dozen suitably qualified teachers looking for jobs.  In fact after three days we got more than twenty applications. I would therefore strongly recommend that principals use Gumtree for finding suitable candidates for whatever post they might need to fill. Especially if it has to be filled within a few days!

Below is a picture of the add we recently posted via Gumtree.  Please don't apply - it's been filled already!
