Chantal Bird is responsible for the Business, Operations, Facilities and IT functions at DCIS and joined us in 2016, having previously worked as the School Business Manager in our sister school in Abu Dhabi for seven years.
Chantal originates from South Africa but left at age 18 with her family to travel to the Middle East, where she spent the next 20 years working in Egypt, Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE. She started her career in the hospitality sector working in 5* Hotels in Front Office and Guest Relations positions before moving into HR and Recruitment. She then left the Hospitality sector to move into the corporate world, continuing with HR/ Recruitment and Office Management before joining schools in 2009.
Outside of work Chantal enjoys spending time with her son who is about to join our IB programme, moving from the GCSE programme. She also loves hiking, camping and any activity that is outdoors within nature.
