NORFOLK, Va. – Calling all job seekers!

The coronavirus pandemic has made shelter-in-place strategies the new normal these days, and as a result Norfolk Public Schools (NPS) is taking a new approach to addressing an ongoing need - teacher and staff recruitment.

On Wednesday, April 29, the school division will host a virtual job fair from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“One of our ultimate goals during this time is to keep the school division moving forward in its recruitment of highly qualified staff. Traditional in-person job fairs are not an option right now. Consequently, we had to pivot, so to speak, and develop a way to address our staffing needs and yet still be conscious of individuals’ personal safety while also remaining in compliance with the latest state and national orders,” said Executive Director of Human Resources Tim Billups.

Registration is required, which will begin on Monday, April 20 and run through Tuesday, April 28.

NPS is hiring for the following positions:

  • Elementary Education, K-5, Teachers
  • English Teachers
  • History Teachers
  • Library Media Specialists
  • Mathematics Teachers
  • Science Teachers
  • Spanish Teachers
  • Special Education Teachers
  • Special Education Teacher Assistants
  • Substitute Clerical
  • Teacher Assistants

Anyone who is interested is required to complete an online application here. Applicants who are eligible for the positions listed above will receive invitations to participate in individual virtual interviews on April 29.
