Working with us

Star International School, Mirdif considers its staff as part of our family. We are a supportive and friendly community that wants to see all of our employees find success in whatever way possible.

The SLT and leaders at all levels of the school are expected to be approachable and supportive. Our greatest asset as a school is the people that work with us, and it is my job, as the Principal, supported by International Schools Partnership (ISP),  to look after you.

As Principal I insist everyone practise “Accountability with Kindness.” This means that yes, we have high expectations, and we place a great deal of emphasis on getting things right for our students, yet we can be kind when supporting each other to reach those expectations.

With our expansion into Post-16 next academic year and an ever-growing staff and student body, it is an exciting time to join the Star Mirdif family. Our recent partnership with ISP brings with it even more global and local networking opportunities, and our school has never been stronger as a result.

When recruiting, we seek to find the right colleagues who really enjoy working with young people and who can listen to them, understanding their needs at different stages of their growth.

Know that we will make it our mission to help you obtain your career aspirations and goals, as best as we are able. 
As a school, we focus on “Research Informed, Wellbeing Aware” teaching and learning. We consider it a professional obligation for educators to seek self-improvement and engage with research-driven best practice, and we will support you on this journey. We appoint staff who are able to drive improvement and who understand the special diversity and complexity of a school like ours.
