We are a little company with a big reach. From our office in BD12 we supply PPA Cover teachers to schools throughout England. We currently have over 100 staff working within 3 Key areas, Yorkshire and Manchester, The Midlands, and greater London. Junior Jam is currently looking for someone to help with the day to day running of the Music and Media Department. We teach curriculum-based lessons in Music and ICT offering children an experienced teacher within that subject. All of our iMedia (ICT) lessons are taught on iPads which need maintaining remotely, through our device management service, and from the office, when repairs are needed. Our Music lessons are taught through instrumentation which again is supplied to the staff and needs maintaining.

We are looking for the right candidate to join our team who has a passion for teaching, as well as delivering a high-quality service to our schools.

  • Training current staff members in newly brought out lessons.
  • Maintaining and updating our Media and Music equipment. This includes but is not limited to iPads for Media and Instrumentation for Music.
  • Cover iMedia and Music sessions for staff illness.

As you become more familiar with the Junior Jam Lessons and what we have to offer schools you may have more duties build into your role.

  • Accompanying new staff to their first sessions to ensure quality of the lessons. (This will be a task added to the role after you have gain enough experience in how we teach our lessons.)
  • Appraising existing staff through lesson observations to ensure quality and to asses their pay.
  • Taster sessions for new customers.



As part of our team you will receive

  • Ongoing support from the Manager and Assistant manager of the department, and everyone else in the office.
  • Training in all of our iMedia and Music lessons.
  • Shadow sessions with our experienced instructors.
  • Pay Appraisals and yearly targets.
