Fast pace work environment. Things can change anytime of the day, so frequent check on emails is a must. People are friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to be a part of children's learning.

A pleasant environment to work in

Dulwich College is a wonderful school to work in, where all colleagues are really warm and helpful. The teachers are well educated and well equipped with knowledge who would share their skills and techniques of teaching. Everyone is polite and respectful of one another's races, nationality and culture.

Cons

No career advancement

Expat focus

Heavily focussed on expat recruitment. Not much career progression for locals. Recruitment focuses expats, just put ads in tes.co.uk website and singapore's jobsbank (for show) with someone in mind from uk. Squeeze you with different roles with minimum salary. Expats earns 6k plus. Locals 3k plus doing almost the same thing if not more. Basic staff benefits. Avoid.

Pros

Facilities

Cons

Salary, progression

Experience at Dulwich

A Typical Day At Work: Greet students and parents, small talks at times with parents, PR, addess lost and found issues, bind and photocopying, emailing, arranging deliveries and transportations, dispensing information to parents and students, attend meetings and trainings, making tea for bosses and visitors, issuing of visitor passes. What I learned: Must of Western culture and school holiday periods, How to allocate lockers and padlocks, dealing with foreigners working and studying in Singapore. Management: Nice group of people, friendly, but extremely busy... weak at health some of them... articulate... not extremely used to their staff plannings though... leave must be cleared during the school holidays, which are the only times we could clear most of our backlots, as during the schooldays we are extremely busy at the counter. The Hardest Part of the Job: Allocating the lockers and padlocks every year before school term begins. The Most Enjoyable Part of the Job: Becoming friends with parents, students, staff and management, doing things together, working out the goals together to bring customer satisfaction.

Pros

Subsidized lunches.

Cons

Leave must be cleared during the school holidays, which are the only times we could clear most of our backlots, as during the schooldays we are extremely busy at the counter.

Administrative Assistant

Daily are routine administrative support and customer service/client facing, where I attend to their requests, (teachers). I have learned that team work play the biggest part in making anything and everything successful as well as clear communication and job delegation. Work place culture are interesting where you meet people from different part of the world with ideas, traditions and attributes. The hardest part of the job is when facing communication break down, parents unrealistic request and complaints. Best part of the job is to be able to complete the job on time as a time. Achieve team goal in a timely manner. Having everyone (mixed culture team work together, respecting each other.

Pros

Free Lunch and use of the Gym

Brand new school, infacncy stage.

Dulwich is a nice place to work at with lots of multi-racial cultures to meet and learn from. However, as the school is only 3 years old, there is much development on going all the time. Systems change constantly which causes a lot of confusion. One system which was in place last term, might be removed this term without notice. I guess the school is aware of these teething problems and will take steps to correct itself.

A dynamic environment

It is a really nice place to work in, however, since it is an international school where it hold many expact, unfortunately the gap between the pay scales is far too wide.

Pros

17 weeks paid holidays
