Careers

Our community is a dynamic, welcoming place to work, with all staff united by a shared commitment to our guiding statements. If you are as inspired by our mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future as we are, we'd love to hear from you.

With around 1,100 teaching, educational support, administrative and operations staff across both campuses, we have developed a shared commitment to care and wellbeing that underpins interactions on campus and guides how we work together to support our community.

Currently, the majority of teachers are from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, while the majority of administrative and support staff are Singaporean. We are an equal opportunities employer, and welcomes applications from those who wish to join a community which is inclusive, and which celebrates diversity. One of our strategic goals is to diversify our staff and we are keen to hear from people with different backgrounds and experiences to add to our community. 

All teachers and many leaders, support and administrative staff participate in the Activities and Service programmes; many are also involved in the trips and expeditions organised through the Outdoor Education programme each year.

Our focus on professional development and the value we place upon it means that the scope for professional learning is extensive for both teachers and for other professionals who join our community.

We are committed to safeguarding our students and protecting them from harm. All those applying for a position at the College must be willing to undergo employment background checks and screening.

Please explore what it means to work at UWCSEA. You can also sign-up for our alerts to be notified when positions become available, as all jobs at UWCSEA are posted on these pages.

Since I joined UWCSEA, I have enjoyed working with the whole community - students, staff and parents - from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. The five elements of the Learning Programme resonate with me and I believe that everyone who is taking part in them has been able to develop as a professional as well as a person. Certainly, it has taken me out of my comfort zone and I have enjoyed the challenges of outdoor education, service and activities. As I have taken on these challenges and opportunities, it has given me more self-awareness about my own abilities, and hopefully helped inspire students to take the risk of exploring seemingly new interests too. 

I am currently involved in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) working group. It is a very exciting project as we focus on creating a more diverse and inclusive environment at school, where everyone feels safe, supported and heard. Working with people from so many backgrounds is extremely uplifting and enriching and I am very proud of being part of being a part of this working group.

Five years ago, two students approached me help with the creation of an LGBTQ+ group for students. It is a testement to the College and its enviornment our students felt safe enough to speak to me and were willing to improve the visibility of the LGBTQ+ students and staff community. Our group “Prism” has been incredibly influential in bringing an aspect of diversity to UWCSEA Dover, and has continued to evolve with growing student support. We have been working to improve the understanding of the struggles that those in the LGBTQ+ students may face, including organising several “Diversity Days”; advising on amending and diversify the PSE element of our Learning Programme; discussing issues that staff may face and helping to equip teachers to better support LGBTQ+ students. We are currently working alongside teachers who are willing to make their subject curriculum more inclusive. I am fortunate and grateful to be part of a supportive environment amongst staff and students, and their parents.
