Nottinghamshire Secondary Consultant
What do you love most about working in education?
“I love when a CV hits my desk of a candidate that looks good on paper, then meeting the candidate for the first time and during the course of the interview thinking I have the perfect school for you. Or on the flip side, going into a school and finding out they have a requirement and then telling them about a teacher I think will be perfect for their needs.”

I have always found John Bergin to be most helpful in searching for staff for us at our College, he is knowledgeable about respective needs in relation to our requirements and understands what we are looking for – in fact all the staff at Aspire are very efficient and have excellent communication skills – they are always our Number One choice to contact for supply staff, both teaching and none teaching, and I always recommend them to other Colleges

John Bergin has found me work in Nottingham as a maths tutor. I have been very happy with the service.
I applied to Aspire People in November of last year in order to see if a career in teaching and working with children would suit me. I got a response very quickly and set up an informal interview with John Bergin soon after. I applied easily for a DBS via their website and once this came back I was apply to begin work. I have been extremely pleased with John Bergin and the work he has found me in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area. It was made aware from the beginning that work rate could vary from 1-5 days per week but on average full time cover supervisors got around 3 days. I would say that I have been lucky and exceeded that amount most weeks. John was always on hand if I had any queries or concerns regarding any schools or pay and quickly clarified them. The company prepared me well for my PGCE training and also provided excellent references. I would recommend this company and John in particular to anyone looking for a career change or to get back in to teaching.
Hi. I have been working in different agencies since I got my QTS two years ago. Last year in Yorkshire and from September in Nottinghamshire. I would like give thanks to John Bergin for his amazing job as a consultant in Aspire People. No problems since working for him. Every time I needed something he is always ready to help and give a solution. I'm hope working a long time with him. Thanks John.
I had been out of the Education industry for decades but joined Aspire 18 months ago. Had a slow start until John Bergin from the Nottinghamshire /Derbyshire area talked to me. He took the time in finding supply posts that were right for me and suit my family commitments. The personal touch makes all the difference in what can be a lonely ,tough job. Regular chats to see how am doing are invaluable. Simon Bligh
I have been really pleased with Aspire People in the short time I have been with them as a Cover Supervisor. The staff are all helpful and friendly. Having John Bergin as my consultant has been fantastic. The interview with John was simple and straightforward and I felt so relaxed. The very next week after my documentation came through, John found me work in the Nottingham area that matched my unique circumstances and I have had a good flow of work since then. John communicates with me on a regular basis and lets me know, on time, when and where there is work. I highly recommend Aspire People and John Bergin if you are considering work as a Cover Supervisor.
John Bergin at Aspire has been fantastic! The support and service he has offered has always been first rate and highly professional at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend Aspire!
Started dealing with John Bergin in November 2016 when he found me a long term teacher to fill a gap we had. Always been approachable and from memory I think I called him before 7am on the first day we needed a teacher and he jumped into action. Great to deal with and always seems happy to help. Thanks John.
Aspire People has provided me with good experience working as a cover supervisor. With Aspire I have enough time to prepare for work as I'm aware of when and where my assignments are in good time. My consultant John Bergin does a good job of this as he gets me work on the regular in the Nottingham area and communicates effectively. John has made sure that I have plenty of opportunity to gain the experience that I need to build my career. I have had a fantastic experience so far working with Aspire People and would happily recommend them and John Bergin.
