GEMS Education

We recruit international teachers to work in Dubai.

From pre-schools to K12 schools, GEMS Education develop students with a life-long love of learning at outstanding international schools all over the world. From simple roots, GEMS has grown to become one of the world's biggest independent education providers.

Want to know how we find expert, passionate and pioneering people? Find out what it's really like to teach and work with us. Unlike others, we don't work with recruitment agencies or agents. So you will get to know us right from the beginning.


How we hire

Combine your love for teaching with an international adventure or a local role.

Last year we received nearly 250 applications a day from teachers around the world wanting to work at GEMS.

We hired less than 2%.

Selecting the very best teachers for our schools from so many high quality applicants is a tough task, and we take it as a huge compliment that so many educators around the world would like to become part of the team.

It takes more than a teaching degree.

Of course, all of our GEMS teachers are qualified and trained. And they must love teaching. But that is not enough for us. A great GEMS candidate can see more in a child than they see in themselves. And they understand that GEMS students will show them more than they will ever teach from the front of a classroom.


How we hire

Don't worry. We won't ask you to jump through hoops or ride through the air. We've made the process of applying for teaching jobs overseas simple. After all, we've been recruiting teachers, teaching support staff and education professionals for over 55 years.

We look for passionate, expert and forward thinking people.

If that sounds like you, share your experience with us by sending us your CV, meeting us at a recruitment event or coming in to see us directly at a corporate office or local school.

We'll have a conversation together about the roles we currently have available, and whether you would like to be considered for other opportunities.

You'll have an interview and receive feedback. We will always keep your experience in mind for future roles (as long as you want us to!)


Recruitment support

Unlike teaching recruitment agencies, we're the people you will be working with every day. We get to know each other personally, right from the word go. That way we can answer any questions you might have about a career with GEMS, and you can benefit from having a direct window into our wonderful world of learning.



What makes a happy GEMS person?

It's waking up every day, knowing we are going to meet the next generation of game-changers, thinkers and doers. Now that's something to cheer about.

We also know that when it comes to being a great place to work, it helps to make sure our people are well looked after - physically, emotionally, financially and socially.

We care about you and your family. Started by a family of teachers, we know just how much family matters. Whether you're moving country to work with us, or just around the corner, we have a number of benefits to support you and your nearest and dearest. And, if you are welcoming a little bundle of joy to your family, ask about how they can be a future GEMS student.

We never stop learning. We're as inquisitive as the students we teach and the leaders we meet. That's why we've developed one of the most comprehensive in-house Training, Leadership and Professional Development programmes in the world. 

Rest and play. Ask us about our holidays benefits packages - with extra days depending on your level and location.

Healthy minds, healthy bodies. On-site nurses and health care professionals keep our people healthy and happy. Services might vary by location.

Travel assistance. With so many GEMS people around the world, we know how important it is to stay connected. Talk to us about travel assistance when you need it.

Employee assistance. Caring for students is not all we do. Sometimes we all need a bit of extra help. We have a team of trained counsellors who can help GEMS people with a wide range of professional and personal problems.

Discounts and offers. For GEMS people in the Middle East, we've pulled together some of the best discounts around.
