I extend a warm welcome to you and hope you will decide to make an application to work with us at Downe House Riyadh. Opening in August 2022 we are a rapidly growing school and have built a strong reputation within Riyadh. I am proud that our staff are committed to the work involved in building a new school. Although we admit boys and girls from Nursery to Year 4, from Year 5 upwards we are proud to accept girls only. We seek candidates, to join our all-female staff, who are dedicated to championing girls’ education.

As a British Curriculum School, offering international GCSEs and A Levels, we seek to recruit well qualified teachers with UK qualifications and experience. Those with experience of teaching the British Curriculum but with qualifications gained in other countries are also welcome to apply.

As a British International school, proud to have brought the Downe House Schools to the Middle East, we take a strong position in relation to teaching Arabic, Islamic and Social studies. We want our Arabic speaking pupils to leave DHR with an equal competence in the English and Arabic language. Our non-native Arabic speakers benefit from high quality teaching too, enabling them to learn this increasingly important global language whilst they study in Riyadh. We recruit local staff with Ministry of Education approved experience to teach these subjects. Our Teaching Assistants and most Administrative staff are also recruited from within the local community.

I am a Principal who expects a lot of her staff. You must care deeply for educating children and nurturing them academically and pastorally. We offer a wide range of co-curricular activities, into which I expect my staff to immerse themselves. We are fortunate to have bright and engaged pupils who enjoy school and want to be challenged whatever their age. Our staff must commit to the ethos that we give freely of our time and energy in order to grow and strengthen our community in all ways. In return we offer a competitive salary package, commitment to developing staff through CPD and opportunities for progression within the Edureach community of schools. Perhaps most importantly it is non-negotiable to me that we nurture a kind, supportive workplace where everyone matters and has a voice.

On a personal level, if you seek to join DHR from overseas, I strongly encourage you to get in touch with our HR team or even with me, to discuss life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I am a passionate advocate for this truly wonderful country and the rapidly developing city of Riyadh. Forget all you may think you know about it – Riyadh is the hub of industry in the Kingdom, with an ever-growing community of ex-patriots living and working alongside a community of Saudis who could not be more open, friendly and supportive to everyone they meet. Whether you are a seasoned overseas teacher or looking to take your first step into international schools, I cannot recommend Riyadh more highly to you as a home from home.

Adele O’Doherty, MA
Principal
