Sarah P’s comments: This is the time of year when the international school library positions begin to be posted for the following school year. As I said in an earlier post, it is always interesting when a school advertises a position outside of regular channels. In this case, I advise carefully reading the reviews posted on International School Reviews and also be aware that while Doha is a modern, pleasant city in a stable country, the cost of living has been rising and the country has been trending toward becoming conservative, for example, cutting off liquor licenses for some establishments, increasing the segregation of men from women, etc. If you are interested in the Middle East, however, these are cultural differences you need to be willing to accept.
FYI: the salary here is actually a little low for the region. Be sure to ask about benefits if you decide to apply. Also, as they list ‘teacher librarian’ make sure to ask whether you will be teaching as well as that sometimes happens.
|The Gulf English School is a private, fee-paying school accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
Founded in 1993, the school provides a caring educational environment for both Qatari and expatriate children, in small classes. The international staff ensures that all pupils, from Pre-School to IB-2, benefit from the curriculum, which is based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales and the International Baccalaureate. We require dynamic, motivated and internationally-minded teachers to join our team. Those seeking to share and improve their skills in a Middle Eastern environment are invited to submit a letter of application and a CV. Interviews will be held at the convenience of both parties.
