The school is currently looking to recruit:

                          Head of Secondary

We are seeking an outstanding leader for this exceptional career opportunity. The successful applicant will take up the role of Head of Secondary. 

We’ll look to you to offer leadership, inspiration and guidance, to manage the day-to-day routines of the Secondary School and to play a major role in the strategic direction of the whole school and to work effectively as a key member of the School Leadership Team.


When you join a Nord Anglia Education school, you join a global community of approximately 9,000 people working together to support our students’ success. We offer you unsurpassed opportunities to innovate and develop best practice across our family, to access extensive professional development, and to gain exceptional experience and career development in our schools. At Nord Anglia, you will have opportunities to progress more, learn more, and collaborate more.

We offer career and development opportunities that come with being part of our global organisation. Nord Anglia University unites our team through a vibrant online platform which harnesses the collective expertise of their peers in an exchange of knowledge, ideas and best practice. We also provide extensive online and face-to-face professional development through Nord Anglia University to ensure that our teachers don’t just maintain their skills, they develop at the cutting edge of educational thinking. Our collaborations with The Juilliard School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers our teachers unrivalled access to leading experts in their fields.

Alongside great training and a competitive package, you’ll enjoy the chance to live and work in one of the worlds' most vibrant cities.

Basic salaries within South and East Asia rarely match those of schools in the UK or indeed some other parts of the world. However, the cost of living within Vietnam is relatively inexpensive and our teachers usually declare that have a higher standard of living on the lower salary and are still able to save and travel around the region.

There is a 30 point leadership salary scale. New Head Teachers are placed on the salary scale according to previous relevant experience and move up the scale annually. Salaries are paid in Vietnamese Dong currency free of personal income tax.The salary scale is reviewed annually to take account of inflation and to keep the school competitive. It will be presented at interview where it will be put into the context of life in Vietnam and the other benefits we provide for employees.

The current benefits available for Head Teachers include:

  • A generous housing allowance
  • Dependent children educated free of charge at school
  • Medical insurance (including dental cover) for the Head, spouse and dependent children
  • Annual return air tickets for the Head, spouse and dependent children
