Why work at Beaconhills?

Here are five great reasons

  • 1

    We have great kids

    Our open-entry policy means we attract students from a diverse range of backgrounds. We have a strong culture of mutual respect between teachers and students.

  • 2

    A strong & professional team

    Beaconhills is a large school, but never feels large because of our close-knit sub-school communities of Early Years, Junior, Middle, Year 9 and Senior School. Staff genuinely enjoy being part of school life, including camps, co-curricular sporting programs and overseas travel opportunities through our language and experiential programs. Many staff choose to educate their own children at Beaconhills, which speaks volumes about the school.

    The perks

    Competitive salaries and conditions make Beaconhills an attractive proposition for teachers. You will be provided with an appropriate and up-to-date device for your classroom practice, have free use of the College gym, a three week mid-year break and the benefits of a spacious and modern working environment. Many of our staff live close to the Melbourne CBD but find the drive against the traffic a bonus. Those who live locally benefit from a safe and less stressful lifestyle with lower housing costs.

    Staff welfare

    The College has a comprehensive wellbeing program and a flexible approach to employment. We encourage and support your professional and personal growth – and offer an employee assistance program.

    We are progressive

    Beaconhills has a firm reputation in the region for being at the forefront of technology and learning. We were one of the first in Australia to roll out a large-scale iPad program. We now have developed, in collaboration with the Harvard Graduate School of Education, a set of innovative, holistic learning principles called ‘Learning That Matters’. These pillars of learning underpin all of our methods.
