Ref: KP792-797

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Our client is a pioneer language institute specialised in teaching Arabic as a foreign language to adults and children.

They were founded in 1980 initially to teach Arabic to adults. Aiming to reach the younger audience as well, the school expanded its scope of services in 1988 as it set out to teach Arabic to children. They have gone from strength to strength since then

As a result, a fantastic opportunity has arisen to manage this pioneering language centre of excellence and we are looking for female candidates who have a genuine passion for the Arabic language and are also totally fluent to the highest level in English.

Ideally we are looking for some form of teaching or academic background, but that is not essential. We are much more interested in proven business acumen, highly tuned administration skills and a history of marketing the business they work in. So we can consider such backgrounds as simultaneous translators, language school principles, or indeed any employment history that demonstrates strong business skills and an absolute passion for the Arabic language.

Teaching opportunities are possible if desired, but will be more on an interim basis to fill in for absent staff.

Salary:
AED 18,000 per month inclusive of fixed allowances.

Requirements

* Absolute passion for the Arabic Language
* Total fluency both written and verbal in both Arabic and English
* Confident leader with the ability to drive and motivate a team
* Positive outlook, a problem solver with a calm persona to professionally cope with stressful situations
* Female candidates from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine will be highly regarded
* A proven marketing professional with innovative ideas to promote and grow the business
