About the Position

Primary Year Lead – Malaysia. We are seeking a qualified and experienced Primary Year Lead for an international school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to start in August 2019. This opportunity is to lead a team of teachers and work with children aged 5-6 years old.

Candidates are required to hold a Bachelor of Education and/or a PGCE plus a subject related degree. A minimum of 3 years teaching experience is also required. Candidates must have experience in a similar role and leading a team of teachers. Native English speakers preferred.

Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s sultry capital it is a feast for all the senses. Here you’ll find historic monuments, steel-clad skyscrapers, lush parks, mega-sized shopping malls, bustling street markets and lively nightspots.Essential parts of the vibrant mix are the incense-wreathed, colourfully adorned mosques and temples of the country’s Malay, Chinese and Indian communities. A reverence for these ancient cultures is balanced with a drive to be plugged into the modern world, a desire that’s reflected in a creative contemporary-art and design scene, an ambitious riverbank-regeneration project and dynamic architecture: the new Exchange 106 tower is taller than the iconic Petronas Towers.

Today’s KL-ites are separated by barely a handful of generations from the tenacious Chinese and Malay tin prospectors who founded the city, carving it out of virgin jungle. By the time the British made it the capital of Peninsular Malaysia in the late 19th century, erecting grand colonial buildings, KL had only been in existence for a couple of decades.Since then, KL has been centre stage on Malaysian history.

To fully connect with locals, join them in two of their favourite pastimes: shopping and eating. Malaysian consumer culture achieves its zenith in KL, where you could spend all day browsing glitzy air-conditioned malls in search of designer fashion and bargains. Alternatively, explore Central Market for locally made souvenirs and handicrafts; and hunt out the few remaining artisans and antiques dealers still keeping shop in and around Chinatown.

SPECIAL NOTE – We thank all who apply and advise that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
