Job Description

Are you keen to be part of a forward-thinking faculty bolstered by a very supportive community? Does an outdoor, adventurous lifestyle with beautiful surrounding scenery appeal to you?

This role comes with leadership opportunity for suitably experienced candidates.

Life on NZ’s West Coast

The school grounds are minutes from the beach and accommodation costs are far lower than national averages. Iconic natural landmarks such as Punakaiki and amazing conservation parks are right on your doorstep. Greymouth is home to around 13,000 residents making Greymouth the largest town on the West coast. A Geographers dream!

You may be eligible for a $5000 overseas relocation grant from the Ministry of Education if you take up a teaching position in New Zealand. Now is a great time to come and teach in Aotearoa!
