Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate school administrators and teachers perception of job satisfaction and job performance in some secondary schools in Freetown, Sierra Leone. A total of 112 participants (32 administrators and 80 teachers) participated in the study. The two job satisfaction/job performance questionnaires (for school administrators and teachers, respectively) were developed pretested and administered for this study. The data collected was analysed quantitatively using Pearson’s product moment correlation. The findings from this study suggest that for school administrators; length of service, appreciation, personal growth, fringe benefits and salary were good predictors of performance on the job while gender/sex and position were negative predictors of performance on the job. For the teachers while fringe benefits were strong predictors of performance on the job, length of service, appreciation, personal growth and work environment were weaker predictors of performance of the job. This study highlights factors that must be taking into consideration in improving organisational performance.
