Opportunities at local authorities

We have a range of roles available at local authorities, and we can help secure the right role for you. From teaching and learning roles, to middle and senior management, or even business support and operations posts, we work together with local authorities across the country to bring you the very best opportunities.

If you want to work as a teacher, tutor or trainer, we have a range of permanent, temporary and sessional vacancies at local authorities that could be perfect for you. You can work in a range of areas, including core skills such as maths, English and ESOL, and life skills and hobby subjects such as cooking, languages and photography. We have 25 years’ experience in the education, skills and training sector, and this helps us match our candidates with the roles perfect for them.

Not a teacher? Local authorities need to recruit all kinds of people to run effectively – from business support and operations roles, to middle and senior management. No matter the role you’re looking for, if you’d like to work for a local authority, we can help you find the perfect opportunity.

Dedicated consultant

As a candidate with Protocol, you will be assigned your own dedicated consultant who will not only help you secure your next role for local authorities, they will also offer free careers advice. We value our candidates and we will look after you, both during the recruitment process and beyond, throughout your career.

Why choose us?

We’re a little different from other agencies: we put people first, and we pride ourselves on our professional conduct, honesty, openness and transparency.

We’re not going to leave you to it once we’ve helped you secure a role: we’ll be on hand to offer guidance and support whenever you need it. Simply call our dedicated helpline on 0115 911 1616, or access our online Learning Zone, which offers free courses and videos to help you develop your skills.
