Edvectus recruits qualified/certified Primary, Elementary, Secondary, Middle and High School teachers from the following countries;

USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa.

Applicants must have at least a Bachelor’s Degree and teaching qualification such as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, Masters in Education or Bachelors of Education. Our jobs are not teaching English as a Foreign Language, and a TEFL certificate alone is not sufficient teacher training.


Although their initial focus is on core subjects they will consider applications for other subjects like Social Studies, PE, ICT and more, but at this time the exact subjects are being determined. The schools use the US curriculum and serve the local and expatriate Arab population alongside other nationalities; they are not western expatriate schools.


The schools are embarking on a re-imagining of what mid-range UAE education should be and need a team of teachers to help make it happen. Now led by an ex-KHDA inspector, the group seeks teachers who can bring energy and drive to make a real difference to the children and school, and teachers who embrace change and think ‘It can be done differently’ rather than relying on ‘we’ve always done it this way’. 


Could this be you? 


Teacher training and license is required, such as UK QTS, PGCE/PGDE, SA/Irish/NZ/Aus Teacher registration, or full US teacher certification for the appropriate age ranges/subject. Candidates must be educated to at least Bachelor’s degree level. For your teaching subject, ideally your first degree must match it. A clean criminal record check is also needed. The school does not offer dependent benefits, so it is not suitable for teachers with accompanying dependent children. 


Teachers trained or experienced in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, NZ, Canada and South Africa are welcome to apply. New graduates will also be considered.

Regional Info:

Sharjah is the cultural capital of the United Arab Emirates and enjoys a convenient central location between Dubai and Ajman offering an exciting range of cultural and western attractions and activities. In addition to its own unique appeal Sharjah is immediately adjacent to the vibrant city of Dubai and the great desert wilderness of the UAE Peninsula, with the great Ajman beaches and the rugged east coast shores of Fujariah only short distances away. Sharjah itself is a busy and vibrant metropolis bustling with many cultures and nationalities all existing together in peaceful harmony. Cost of living in terms of transport, restaurants and shopping is very cheap enabling a higher saving potential than other more obvious expatriate hot spots that tend to part you from your money much faster! Sharjah is also the base for the popular carrier Air Arabia that offers fantastic deals to all parts of the Middle East affording opportunities to explore the region at the weekend or during longer school holidays. Dubai is one of the United Arab Emirates, and is probably the most famous. Dubai is a very westernised and welcoming country that is full of expatriates from all over the world. Seen as the tourism gateway to the Middle East you will find everything from indoor ski slopes to warm beaches to the tallest building in the world within its borders. Dubai packs well above its weight - why not find out why?
