Great place to work at

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Permanent staff are very helpful and supportive. I felt heard. I've gained so much knowledge during my internship and got inspired to pursue a career in Recruitment.Sufficient new project opportunities are given even to a mere intern like myself.


Awesome people to work with, Working hours is short and they allow staff to work from home (during my time spent there)


nothing! I enjoyed my time there

Toxic environment with Negative people in Campus

Utterly disgraceful and toxic environment place for Primary School Dover. Team was not welcoming and always gave negative remarks and give unacceptable expressions. No guidance and suggestions was not forthcoming and not helpful whenever questioned was asked for new comer. Not responding to urgent requests and educators will screamed their lungs out at the students with frustration in many occasions that could be heard across another classroom. Overall it was not a great place to work with as they don’t respect each other and neglect positive suggestions.


Great benefits and Salaries

Good Culture & Compensation

The culture was good with friendly colleagues who provide guidance. The compensation rate was good. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the students.

it's a very professionally run organisation with very global vision and mission

UWC is an organisation that is very sincere in putting into practice its mission and vision in its day-to-day operation. As a result, the students demonstrate values that very unique to UWC. This provides an ideal teaching and learning environment for both the teachers and students.


Briliant working enviroment

One of the better places I have worked

Had great colleagues. Work was fairly spread out as far as workload was concerned. There were non monetary benefits one will stay in the job for like how bosses reward us and teamwork.


Fair pay and bonus. Staff welfare taken care


Department management needs to make more effort on dispute settlements

Very enjoyable working place.

I am happy working at the UWC South East Asia, but it's too early I have to rush for work. I have to catch the first feeder bus every morning and also have to walk fast to the school just I don't want to be late.

Productive and Fun Work Place

Great place to work at! Very diverse and inclusive environment. Great work life balance. Culture is absolutely amazing. Management is great too. Only down side is that it has very slow progression for administrative staff.

Intern Guide

Excellent team to work with in SE Asia. Typical day depends of what our contract with international schools entailed. Some schools request a more expedition based education while others require more service learning experiential educational trips. Hardest part of the job would be exposing the proper education and information to the clients

This was a voluntary position at my school in Singapore, I was the Co-chair of a charity organisation called Cancer patient aid association, which helped raise money for cancer patients in Mumbai. This position taught me how to lead a large group of people and to work alongside many different personality types. Also getting the opportunity to volunteer for such a worthy cause is such a rewarding experience as you get to not only make a difference in people's lifes, but see it happen.

UWCSEA Dover - Toxic Junior School Management

While many colleagues are wonderful committed people, and the students, like kids the world over, are regularly amazing and great to teach, the prevailing management style in the Junior School can be one of intimidation and disenfranchisement of staff. If your voice is raised in a way that is viewed as contrary to the Junior School management, you risk being ostracised and ultimately eliminated. The resulting cliques throughout the Junior School staff are exclusive and guarded as people shore up their territory. The absence of open dialogue is shocking and stunts personal and professional growth. Employment and subsequent promotion are frequently unilateral decisions by the Junior School Management, resulting in comments such as this one to me, "If X is going for that position, there is no point in the rest of us even thinking about it.". I know of at least four recent Primary School appointments that weren't even advertised internally, let alone in the public domain. This carefully cultivated indebtedness is a powerfully successful tool in maintaining a status quo which favours the sycophant and his narcissistic manager. When a person is permitted to wield power in this way, with impunity, thanks to ineffective senior management, no salary will compensate you adequately to work in such a stressful environment.


Meeting some amazing, enthusiastic people.


Bullying by management.

Productive and great workplace

Working hours is good. Great colleagues but occasionally the work load can be overwhelming. Bosses are knowledgeable. As it has been 10 years, I feel that I am in need for the search of a new work environment.


Good pay, work advancement.

Professionally satisfying establishment where teachers are well-supported with professional development opportunities.

The College is a most demanding place to work and it is hard to develop a healthy work/life balance, but at the same time, working there is professionally satisfying and teachers are well-supported with professional development opportunities of very high calibre. Decisions are based upon excellent educational practice, rather than on budgetary constraints and facilities for both staff and students are excellent. Staff are expected to be active in all areas of college life and are encouraged to pursue individual interests in their personal lives. Remuneration packages are very good, and they need to be, as the cost of living in Singapore is significantly high. Colleagues are all dedicated practitioners of considerable skill and enthusiasm. My time at the College has been a wonderful experience. My passion for teaching has been nurtured and I have developed my skills to high levels.I have felt appreciated and respected as an educator. This is of paramount importance to me. The only reason that I am looking to move on is that the College presently operates a strict retirement age policy and I feel that, with my skills, experience and passion for teaching, I have much to offer, especially within an international setting.


Professional courtesy, high standards of professional development, good remuneration package, excellent working relationships


Mandatory retirement age
