What skills and experience we're looking for

Join The JCB Academy as a Science Teacher and help shape the business and engineering leaders of the future. We’re seeking an educator who can teach their specialism at GCSE and A-Level across a broad ability range.

The JCB Academy is defined by a can-do culture and, as a teacher with us, you’ll drive it. Your positivity, subject area authority and energy will make you a role model for learners - it’s something you’ll live up to in every aspect of school life, including extracurricular activities. You’ll foster inclusivity that will enable everyone to reach their potential at The JCB Academy. Your own included!

Please contact the HR Department by email to recruitment@jcbacademy.com or on 01889 506100 if you would like to arrange an informal visit. Interviews will be held on 24 May 2024 or during week commencing 27 May 2024.

What the school offers its staff

The JCB Academy is a school specialising in business and engineering. We teach learners from Y9 to Sixth Form and provide Intermediate (L2) and Advanced (L3) apprenticeship programmes as well as Business and Engineering T-Levels which provide additional choices post-GCSE. Our approach pairs classroom learning with practical application, and we have an impressive range of world-class industry partners who help with that. JCB, of course, but also including Bosch Rexroth, Harper Adams University, Rolls-Royce and Toyota Motor Manufacturing. Names that can turn heads with learners and lock in their learning engagement.

We offer a benefits package which includes an Employee Assistance Programme (including financial guidance, legal enquiries, support for issues at home and at work), access to JCB’s dental scheme (monthly fee), free access to the academy’s gym, free on-site parking and Cyclescheme.

Situated close to Uttoxeter, you’ll have a picturesque market town on your doorstep and easy access to many independent shops, cafes and bars. Once you’ve explored that, there are plenty of characterful villages and cultural attractions to immerse yourself in as well as great travel links to major cities and The Peaks. It’s a beautiful place to call home and there’s an abundance of great-value-for-money housing available. The JCB Academy’s Relocation Assistance Scheme will be offered in relation to this appointment; further details are available from the HR Department.
