Head of Art Department

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and talented leader to head this small, dynamic department, comprising of two fulltime teachers and a technician. The Art Department is well resourced and benefits from a very spacious painting/3D studio, silk screen printing area, ceramics studio and dedicated computer suite. The successful candidate must enjoy sharing ideas, be tolerant, open and flexible and will work as part of a team with relatively small groups of very mixed ability students. We work hard to engage and support the students and have an adventurous and ambitious approach when developing programs of study. The students achieve excellent results at both IGCSE and A level.

The successful candidate will be able to offer a wide range of skills and teach across all age groups and abilities in the secondary school up to and including A level. Applications from candidates with an interest in printmaking and ceramics will be particularly welcomed.

You will need to have a proven ability to offer a wide range of approaches and skills to a high standard and experience of teaching pupils working in a second language.

You will be expected to bring a portfolio of work which demonstrates the above across the age and ability range if you are invited to interview. Local candidates will be asked to teach a lesson as part of the interview process.

The salary structure is based on a ten point scale. The basic salary will depend upon previous experience but will be in the range of AED 13,000 to 19,470 per month. A teacher with ten years’ experience will start at the top of the pay scale. There is an additional Head of Department allowance, based on experience and size of department ranging from AED 1,150 to 2,875 per month. The salary is tax free and paid at the end of each month. There is a terminal gratuity between AED 8,715 and AED 23,000 for each year of employment (this amount increases throughout your employment).

There are a range of additional allowances paid to staff on an overseas contract which will be discussed if you are invited to interview.
