Lee Carpenter

Managing Director

My name is Lee Carpenter and I am Managing Director of Teachers First, a brand-new concept in Supply Teacher and Support Staff benefits, welfare and payroll services.

I have been working with Education Recruitment for the past twenty-one years within large international brands, national brands and small to medium concerns.

Before that I worked as a Supply Teacher within Secondary Schools in the West Midlands having qualified as an Art and Design Teacher in 1997.

I have always dedicated myself to offering the best service to those I have worked with but have been increasingly frustrated with the level of service offered by payroll service providers to Education Staff.

It seems that hours can be wasted on simple payroll queries and that almost those working with Education and those working within the payroll providers are talking a different language.

Payroll providers typically used with the Education Recruitment Sector usually deal with several unrelated sectors and so tend to adopt a one size fits all approach.

I believe if you offer a first-class service to your Schools, Teachers and Support Staff through recruitment you should also offer a first-class payroll service too.

That is why Teachers First, a payroll services provider created by Education Specialists for Education Specialists, takes time to understand the needs of Supply Teachers and Support Staff and delivers exciting and relevant benefits and services.
