AIS-R is seeking highly qualified, innovative, and learning-focused educators who are ready to play a significant role at one of the Middle East’s leading schools. We offer a variety of opportunities for professional growth in a collaborative and exciting working environment. AIS-R educators direct the course of their own professional learning and growth within a forward-thinking and supportive framework. Additionally, our belief is that supporting education initiatives enables our educators and students to develop the understandings, skills, values, and mindset to take meaningful action in creating a more inclusive, sustainable, and peaceful world.
As a school committed to Child Protection practices, AIS-R continually strives to maintain and improve the safety and security of all of our community members. The most vulnerable of those stakeholders, our students, rely on the professionalism and expertise of those put into positions to have a positive impact on their experience at school and at home. With this in mind, AIS-R thoroughly screens all employment candidates and all candidates are required to provide reputable and verifiable references and background checks. At AIS-R, we employ only individuals who are able to provide verifiable background information. The strength of our community relies on our willingness to ask tough questions and require responses that meet the high professional standards at AIS-R.
