We are seeking a talented and motivated teacher to head our commerce learning area, who has the ability to teach accounting, economics and business studies, or a combination of these. The successful applicant will teach across our middle and senior schools (Y7–13). This appointment will ideally commence in time for term 1, 2019, but there may be room for some negotiation for a later start.

We are a world-class independent school with a strong Presbyterian heritage.  From 2020 we will be enrolling girls in our senior school, Y11–13. Based in the eastern suburbs of Wellington, the college offers a vibrant learning environment, encouraging excellence in every facet of education. The college is proud of its dedicated staff who work hard to support and encourage the students. The school environment is strong and the staff work closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their children.  

We offer a dual pathway for our senior students offering both NCEA and the IB Diploma. The college is fully authorised for the delivery of the Diploma Programme and the Middle Years Programme. Experience teaching either or both of these programmes would be highly advantageous, although if necessary, training will be provided to the right candidate.

Applicants should have:

  • Experience or willingness to lead an important curriculum area, and the staff within
  • A passion for, and the ability to promote commerce subjects in the college
  • Superior communication and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent organisational skills and time management
  • A desire to foster excellence
  • The ability to promote learning and a passion for the education of young people
  • A willingness to move with the times and work to meet our future-focused learning goals
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills
  • The ability to manage and motivate young people
  • A commitment to our special character and co-curricular programmes.
