The purpose of the study was to find out the contributions of delegation and the job satisfaction of primary school teachers in Awei Sub County with specific objectives of task allocation, teachers’ responsibilities and teacher power position’s influence on job satisfaction. This study carried out a quantitative research with non-experimental, co-relational, cross- sectional, survey design. The population comprised of 104 both primary school teachers and head teachers in Awei Sub County from where a sample size of 82 respondents were sampled using on Solvent’s formula. Findings revealed that there is a positive relationship between delegation and job satisfaction that is indicated by 0.743 which is statistically significant at 0.000<0.01 and the coefficient of determination (Adjusted R2 ) value of 0.545 implies that 54.5% of the variation in job satisfaction of teachers can be explained by the level of task allocation, responsibility assignment and power position. The researcher recommends that head teachers should allocate more tasks to teachers, assign more responsibilities and also give them more powers in the position they occupy to execute responsibilities. All this has likely led to their job satisfaction.
